Answers to frequently asked questions
Does this cover hosting fees for my website?
No. You are responsible for paying a hosting provider to host your website. If you need trustworthy recommendations, feel free to ask.
Why do you bill in £ GBP?
SImple really. My first clients were based in the UK. Now I am proud to serve people around the world. Based on demand, I may change my pricing to $ US at some point.
What other charges are there?
You are responsible for paying hosting charges and any third-party storage costs, associated with off-site backups. I recommend using Amazon AWS, which is really affordable and offers rock-steady global datacenters.
My hosting provider takes backups, do I need additional ones?
Your website is critical to your business. If something happens to your hosting provider or their backup service, you will have piece of mind that there's a complete and recent backup of your website sitting somewhere-else for you to use, if required.
Do you only support Wordpress websites
Yes. I have been working with Wordpress websites for as long as I can remember and before that, I hand-coded websites.
I have an ecommerce site using WooCommerce or Shopify - can you help?
At the present time I do not support WooCommerce or Shopify - but if you would like to discuss whether I can help you, please email email@example.com
I have more than one website for you to help me with, what do I do?
An active Piece of Mind subscription covers one website. Please go through the sign up process one time per website you wish to activate the subscription for. If you have a website running on a sub-domain (i.e. courses.yourdomain.com), which is completely separate from your main site (yourdomain.com), this counts as two sites.
