If you are a novice in this area, you could be lekka confused trying to understand all the different options and the what's and what not's. Probably ending up paying more due to your lack of knowledge - all because you have to make all the decisions. Option A, B or C. You have to decide with the little knowledge you have on the product you think is right for you only to find out afterwards that you probably have to upgrade or acquire more of this or that.
Then you end up doing your own website because you could have your website up and running in a few minutes and it is sooo cheap. You can even make all the changes to your contents they advertise.

Over the past 13 years Biographix have been involved in the development and hosting of many websites. And we have received a variety of different requests - all which we address today and provide solutions for.
Is there an initial amount payable? : In certain scenarios we may require a deposit
Is there any additional of hidden costs? : No
If I take the monthly option - how long is this amount payable for? : For 12 months
What happens after that? : According to the consumer act, your contract is changed to a monthly based contract.
Is this amount payable adjusted? : Everything is based on the maintenance required or changes made to your website the past 12 months. We do not however automatically adjust the fees up or down. but on renewal of your domain name, we take these in consideration and we are open for discussions on the retainer fee.
Can I change my options at any time? : Absolutely
What happens if I exceed this 2 hours allocated time? : Under normal circumstances, this will not be a problem. When it does become a problem is when you require us to do 5 hours work. Normal updates and addition to websites which takes us 10 - 15 minutes at a time is easier to plan for as it is to plan for a couple of hours. If you sometimes do exceed your time with more regular updates as mentioned, we will not blink an eye.:)
What happens if I want to exclude the maintenance or retainer fee? : No problem at all, we simply adjust our quote and once we go live with your website, changes or updates to your website are done and charged on an ad-hoc basis. The monthly newsletter is then also optional.
But what about the disk space, number of emails accounts and traffic allocation, you know, all that technical stuff other oke's advertise on their websites? : Not to worry, it's taken care of. We've managed hundreds of websites over the past 13 years, we have a good idea what is required.
Can you guarantee that my page will rank tops in Google? : No we cannot. In fact no one can. There are many factors that has an influence on these results. We optimise and research the best possible keywords for you, but if you want to focus on this, it is best to get the services of a specialist on this.
What if I want to expand my website? : We give you credit for payments made and change your options according to your new requirements.
Option 1 - You transfer your website (domain) to our administrative control
Option 2 - We revamp your site on your current hosting provider
Who becomes the owner of the domain? : We register you as the owner and we become the domain's administrative contact.
How long does this domain transfer process takes? : It largely depends which ISP your previous webmaster used, if he is still around to receive the transfer tickets and also if the domain is registered in SA or not.
Will my website be offline during the transferring period? : It depends on you, but normally we try to do the transfer once your new website is ready.
What happens to my email accounts? : We create your new email account(s) in advance and provide you with the new passwords and setup instructions. Once your site is transferred your new domain's email accounts will receive the email without interruption.
What happens if we experience problems with the domain transfer? : We can redirect your site to the new domain's URL untill it is solved.
