Your web site is a collection of computer files. These are kept on a special computer called a web server. "Hosting" is the rent you pay to have your files kept on a web server. Painless Web hosting comes in two flavors:

Painless Hosting. This includes all site maintenance; changes to staff info, text, graphics, etc., as well as new pages, email accounts, pictures, etc. Choose your plan:

  • $37/month. (Automatic credit card or bank draft only)
  • $180/6 months. (Just $30/month)
  • $324/year. (Just $27/moth)

Regular hosting, with other services provided at the hourly rate. Painless Web may, at it's discretion, require clients with larger sites or more complex needs to use this plan.

  • $240/year ($20/month)

Here's a smart idea: Painless Web's Painless Transfer! $497.
Let us move your site to Painless Web servers, and get everything fixed on the way. Includes moving files, email transfer and configuration, resolving domain and DNS records issues, site re-organization, navigation clean up, and fixing most technical issues. Usually writing and re-design are not included, but that depends on how much other work needs doing. You may also be eligible for Painless Hosting.

By-the-hour - $65 per hour
Want to keep your web site where it is? If your needs are simple, then going with the hourly rate may be your best bet. Call now to discuss your new or improved web site: 434 242-1841, or 866 234-9922 toll free

Consulting - $65 per hour
Note that Painless Web only works directly on Unix/Linux web sites. We do, however, provide consulting services for sites on Microsoft IIS servers. Not sure what you've got? Call us to find out; 434 242-1841, or 866 234-9922 toll free

Site Evaluation

Sorry, but due to surprisingly high demand, this service is no longer available for free. Note, however, that the fee is applied as a credit toward any work you might have us do for you. If you would like to do the evaluation yourself, materials and worksheets can be found here.

If you can bear to part with $45, however, we will perform our 15 point web site evaluation for you. This covers a number of important factors about your site including:

    • Domain name registration issues
    • Site organization and navigation
    • Browser and monitor display compatibility
    • Content usability
    • Search engine status
    • ...and much more.

These reports are 3 to 5 pages long, and include consultation on any corrective action needed. Call or email now to get yours.

Topics available include, how the internet works, how computers work, business web site basics, home web site how-to's, and computer and internet security issues.

Hand-outs are provided. Minimum audience age is 14. Talks can also be tailored to your specific needs for a variety of web development and computer-related technical issues at the regular consulting rates.

* Travel expenses and/or time may be billed outside the central VA area. Contact Mark for details.
