Website renting is the modern way of getting online!
Get your business online in as little as 4 weeks. Forget about highly priced designs or the expensive cost of content creation. Rent one of our custom websites instead and get online fast.
It basically works like this:
- You tell us what type of business you have and the industry you are in
- We ask you for your business name so we can get the proper domain name (or something very similar if unavailable)
- We begin to create content uniquely made for your business and industry
- We give you the new content for review
- We give you multiple mockups for the new site â€“ so you can select the want you like
- We begin designing the new site until itâ€™s perfect
- And finally, we give you your new site so you can start wowing prospects
Just like renting an apartment, but easier!
What are the benefits of renting a website?
Website renting is a fairly new concept in the web design world. The main benefit to you as a consumer is the fact that you can get started with a very small budget. So instead of having to come up with 2000 dollars for the design, another 15 hundred for the web copy, and another 400 for hosting, you can get started for as low as $200.
One important thing to keep in mind is the fact that even if you rent a custom website, you will still need content for your blog. But again, hiring a monthly article writing service is not as expensive as some companies might want you to believe. In fact, you can get around 4 articles of premium content written by American writers for as low as $360. And thatâ€™s not a bad deal if you ask me.
Keep in mind that if you have the time or a dedicated employee for content, this isnâ€™t even a concern. Basically, you are spending a 10th of the amount you would have spent if you were getting a custom site from scratch. Those kinds of savings can be the difference between explosive growth and getting stuck with no money to promote your business.
But who owns everything?
When you rent a website, the web design company owns all the content with the exception of the images or other web copy items provided by you. The reason they own everything is because the website that you are getting is custom made from scratch. The web copy is specifically created to help you meet your business objectives, the images used come from premium sources, and the web hosting service is made for fast performance. In other words, you are getting the $5000 design at a fraction of the cost.
Could I buy the website later on?
Yes, absolutely. Website renting is the perfect option to get online with a small budget, a great starter option. But, once you begin to see sales and gain more customers, you should seriously consider buying the rights to all site elements.
In most instances, the website design company will take into consideration the number of months youâ€™ve had the site and will normally sell you the rights to everything at a very reasonable price (note that the domain name requires a yearly registration fee â€“ around $12 or so per year paid to the domain registrar).
Who is responsible for website maintenance?
In most cases, the website design company is responsible for ensuring everything works with the new site. Thatâ€™s the beauty of website renting! They are responsible for security, system updates, technical fixes, and graphical fixes. The design company also creates periodic site backups to ensure that your site can be up and running in case something goes wrong. Total peace of mind!
If you decide to buy the website later on, you can most likely negotiate a fair price for maintenance and for hosting with the design company. This way you own everything, but the web design company continues to be in charge of the technical stuff.
How is the new website built?
That depends on the web designer. There arenâ€™t a lot of companies doing this out there, we have been disrupting the web design market with this highly innovative approach. Here at Digital Innovations, we use WordPress for all our designs. We use premium builders to craft the perfect site with the look you want.
Other web companies might use Squarespace, Wix, Shopify, or any of the many web design platforms out there. Keep in mind that if a third-party provider like Wix is used, there might be other charges associated with running the new site. We decided to use WordPress because is free to get and its extremely powerful, no matter what type of website you may need.
Can I cancel my new website if my business goes south?
Yes, you can. Have peace of mind. Most web renting providers do have a 12-month lease period but if your business is not working as expected you can submit a 60-day notice and the site will be taken offline. The whole purpose of renting custom websites is to give you the flexibility of growing and if the business is not growing as expected, you have the option to terminate the site (thatâ€™s why we call website renting the modern way of getting online).
