Once your contract is up we have three options for you to choose from.
Renew your contract, and get a brand new design. It’s been two years since we first built your website, times have changed and your brand may have taken a new direction. If this is the case take advantage of a brand new design. All you have to do is resign for another term.
Move to our month to month maintenance plan. From here you can enjoy the benefits of having peace of mind knowing that we will actively host and maintain your website for $150 per month. This is the pricing as of now but our month to month maintenance is open to changing services and prices. Starter sites that are $150 per month will automatically roll into our month to month service after 24 months and can be canceled at any time.
We can package up your website files and deliver them over to you to host, manage, and maintain your own website moving forward. You will have a grace period of 2 weeks once your contract is up to move your website to another hosting provider if you do so choose.
60 Day Money Back Guarantee
We want to thrill every single person who works with 180 Sites, if we are not able to satisfy a client we want to refund them their money. However, we also do not want this peace of mind offering to our clients to become a poison to us. Your 60-day money-back guarantee is contingent upon your satisfaction not being met. If we are not able to live up to our promises then we do not want to keep you bound to us. We only want what is right and fair for everyone. That being said, if you purchase a package and then declare you are not satisfied because you want what is found in another package you may upgrade to that package to satisfy your needs but you cannot cancel by saying I want more than that which comes in my package. If you are purchasing a starter or deluxe package, these services are based on our templated designs. That being said you know what you will expect in terms of the design because the design is already created, therefore you may not object to any designs that are given in our starter or deluxe packages. If you sign up for our premium package you are entitled to a fully custom designed website. If we are not able to thrill you with our custom designs then you may request all of your money to be returned to you and cancel your services with 180 Sites.
