After the final payment for a website is received, any work thereafter will be billed at an hourly web rate.

Restart Fee:
If your project is stagnant (no communication or progress) for 45+ calendar days, our “Restart Fee” in the amount of $275 will be applied to ensure that you are serious and committed to completing the project.
