Why do you offer FREE Websites for Contractors?

We understand that many Contractors or construction companies have a limited budget. Also a new website takes time to start working in the search engines. So instead of charging full price, up front, we amatorize it over 60 months. Your monthly payment covers the hosting, all website services listed and the actual construction of the website.

Do I own the free website after its built?

In short “Yes”, it’s your website. But you are leasing it until we can recoup our investment and then if you would like to take it to another hosting company you can. Until then it would stay with us. All the terms are in our “terms of service” page.

Can I work on my website or do all changes need to go through the web designer?

Unless you are a skilled website designer and know the Wordpres CMS and the DIVI theme builder software, we would highly advice “NO”, dont attemp this. It’s best that you submit a ticket asking for help.

After my website is built, can I take it to another hosting company that is cheaper?

YES & NO

NO – The website is being “leased to own” to you meaning that after your term has been achieved per our “terms of service“, then the site is fully yours.

YES – We can offer you a buy-out fee and once paid we can email you the file.

REASON – We do all the upfront work at NO COST to you. Then like any lease, we recoup our expenses over time. Once this has been achieved, you will own the website.

MONEY BACK GUARANTEE

We offer a 100% Money Back Guarantee.

You can cancel within the first 30 days if you are not happy and we will refund your deposit. The deposit is simply your firt month payment.

The way it works is we will build the Home Page showing you the style, template, colors and layout. This is called a theme. Once you give us the Go-Ahead, the we will work on the rest of the site and get it finished for you. We will not build the entire website until you approve the theme first.

PLANS – PRICING – PAYMENTS

Can I start with a smaller site, then grow into a larger one later?

Absolutely! … Many Contractors start with a 5 page website but then quickly realize that need more. If you want to try and get your site ranked in the Google search engine, you will definitely need more “content”. That means “more pages”.

KEYWORD STUFFING WARNING

Google has very strict rules about “keyword stuffing”. This means you have a small site, but then build massive pages and stuff it with all kinds of keywords. They will penalize your site and you may never show up in searches.

Can I start with a larger site, then downscale if needed?

You sure can! … But lets say you have a 20 page website, then want to go down to 7 pages. You would have to make a decision on what to do, such as:

1) Get rid of some pages and the content.

2) Transfer that content to another page, but this is not a good idea as it will be a garbled page and confusing to the user and to Google. Also known as “keyword stuffing”.

What forms of payment do you take?

We ONLY USE PayPal. You will agree to a “subscription”, meaning that the monthly payment you agree to will be automatically charged to what ever you pay with at the time of signing up.

PayPal will accept just about any type of payment. We do this so that we never collect or see your credit card number. PayPal is the worlds most trusted payment system and extremely secure.

Do I need to sign a contract when I sign up?

NO! … Not at all. – NO CONTRACTS cool

We do not have contracts as if you want your website, they you pay. If you change your mind, then you are free to go when you like. You would simply cancel your subscription by logging into your PayPal account.

If I decide to cancel, How would I do this?

Very Simple…

1) Simply log into your PayPal account and cancel this subscription. Very easy and it takes about one minute.

2) You can also contact us and we can cancel it on our end.

WARNING: If you cancel your site will be take down and will not be live anymore. After 30 days it will be permanently deleted.
