Frequently Asked Questions

Got questions? Here's some answers to some of the most common questions. Still not sure? Contact anytime via our contact page or Facebook Messenger.

COVID-19 Information

Operating safely as usual from home. No service disruption expected. Strengthened trusted fallback support & maintenance partnerships in place as a precaution.

Are there any long-term commitments? Is there a contract?

All plans are on a monthly rolling basis unless otherwise stated. There are no long-term commitments. The first month is non-refundable. There are no refunds for unused portions of months.

After 18 months or equivalent top-up payment, you will have the option to receive a license to your completed website source code where you are welcome to move the entire site to a new provider. Of course, you can also continue your rolling plan and take advantage of all of the great benefits including ongoing design improvements, feature updates, all-inclusive maintenance and more. See 'Will I own my website?' for more info.

What happens when I buy and how long until my new website is live?

As soon as you sign-up to a pay monthly website plan, you will receive a lovingly created kickstart pack which contains a handful of questionnaires and worksheets that will inform the design & development of your new site. Once you submit the completed documents, websites can usually be live within just 7 days unless you have a different launch date in mind.

Will I own my website?

While our focus is providing value via our ongoing included services and there are no long-term commitments tying you down, you will own and have the ability to move your completed website to a new provider after 18 months worth of payments (or equivilent lump top-up payment). If you upgrade your site, your buy out cost will be calculated at the cost of your latest plan.

For example, if you have been on our starter plan at ยฃ15 a month for 12 months, you can buy your complete website for ยฃ90 (ยฃ15 * (18 months - 12 months). Alternatively, if you were on our starter plan for ยฃ15 a month for 6 months and upgraded to a more expensive plan at ยฃ30 a month for 12 months before deciding you wanted to own the rights to your website, you will have paid ยฃ450 to date and owe ยฃ90 (18 months * ยฃ30 - ยฃ450).

Owning your website means that you will be provided website source code and a license to use the files in accordance with other relevant licensing agreements such as CMS and other assets. You will always retain the copyright to any text content, imagery or other assets you have provided.

These buyout costs are in place to ensure that the flexible pay monthly plans remain viable and to curb abuse of the significant time investment in the initial website build and ongoing maintenance.

What is a domain name? Which domains can I choose? What if I already have a domain?

A domain name is the phrase and extension your visitors will type in to the URL address bar to find your website. For example, yourbusiness.co.uk.

To be able to provide you with your desired domain name, it must be unregistered and available publicly for non-premium registration. You can check domain name availability and which extensions require a small annual supplement on the domains page.

Already have a domain name? No problem! With a few simple settings that we can guide you through, you can use any existing domain name for your new pay monthly website.

What payment methods do you accept and are there any additional fees?

Initial payments are accepting of all major credit/debit cards using secure industry standard payment processor Stripe.

Before your second month, we will arrange recurring monthly billing. For customers in the UK & Eurozone, the preferred method is Direct Debit via our secure payment processing partner GoCardless. For international customers or customers who would prefer not to use Direct Debit, recurring credit/debit card billing via Stripe is also available.

There are no additional payment fees on any payment method and Adam Greenough trading as Goldcrest Pay Monthly Websites does not currently charge VAT (value added tax).

Why do I pay the first month right away?

The first month of your pay monthly website is billed in advance to cover the costs of domain name registrations, web hosting and to ensure that you are serious about moving forwards with the project. Although it is billed in advance, the first month does not start counting down until your website is live.

Can I upgrade my pay monthly website plan?

Absolutely! You can upgrade your website package or add/remove bolt-ons at any time. Simply contact to arrange.

What do you call a month?

In general, billing is attempted on the same day each month. For example, if you start on the 3rd March, your next payment will likely be on the 3rd April.

Can I pay quarterly or semi-annually?

Billing is also available as quarterly (3 months with 5% discount) or semi-annual (6 months with 10% discount) payments. There are no refunds for unused portions if you decide to cancel.

How do I manage my pay monthly website?

You can find your plan details, access website CMS logins, browse analytics, view help guides, get support and more in our clever client area at https://my.goldcrest.site/.
