Website Management Services

 

A 2-layer approach

Your datacenters and services + AXEO. Another service by popular demand. Our customers asked for managed, business class Website management and related services. We are here for you with  services not available from generic datacenters and web hosting services.

You can keep your website and related services where they are now.
If you do move, we can move with you.

   $80 – QuickSite. Complete, new website build. Learn more ->

We can assist you indirectly or you can add us as a technical user to your accounts so we can login directly.

No lock in. You own it. All services are subscribed to by you in your name.
You are always in control and in charge of your services.

AXEO does not provide any datacenter services directly.  For examples, domain name hosting, website hosting, and email hosting.  We can assist you indirectly with your services and service providers.

There are over a 100 Website Builder platforms and frameworks on the market.  A new one seems to appear every few weeks.  We work with a number of the majors including Google Sites, Shopify, Webflow, WIX, and WordPress.

They all now work essentially the same way.  For an experienced programmer, “if you know one, you know them all”.  If we don’t happen to work with your stack, but AXEO is still a good fit for your organization, we will get up to speed at no charge and do the reading and research (R&R). 

WordPress is a specialty

A website is just another web application.  It deserves the same rigorous approach and best practices as any other application. We have been developing software using the WordPress framework for the last 20 years.

A WordPress website has many moving parts on the backend that require careful attention, configuration and management. Web hosting, PHP, MySQL, WordPress core, themes, templates, plugins, security, firewall, intrusion detection, backups, and more.

   $10 /month – Basic website hosting, managed WordPress.org framework, our webservers.

Your web host and WordPress site will usually send many notifications that require monitoring, evaluation, and possibly action.

Who is managing your WordPress site, front end and back end?  Who is performing all of the related tasks?

We employ website industry best practices, WordPress specific best practices, and our own that we have developed over many years.

   A typical website update, frontend or backend, takes < 1 hour and usually < 1/2 hour.

ECOMMERCE Management
A basic ecommerce system that employs popular, free-to-use, WordPress and WooCommerce components. If you prefer a SaaS website builder platform, Shopify is an option.

Note that WordPress + Shopify is a combo to consider

We can setup this system for you to manage, or we can manage all aspects for you for one low monthly fee. We setup your catalog with categories and products initially. Then you communicate changes by email or text and we make the changes for you.

Contact us to discuss the size and volume of your store and a flat-fee price for management services.

Domain Name Hosting
There are a number of good Registrars. We have worked with Google Domains, Network Solutions, Enom, Register and GoDaddy to name a few.

Often times, your domain name registration services and other datacenter services such as web and email hosting are combined from one company. Example: Google Domains and Google Sites.

To Order
We make that easy too. Contact us here with your organization name and contact info. Include your domain name if you have one. If you have an existing web site, we need access to help you. If you want a new web hosting account, you can choose the datacenter, or onboard by clicking one of the links on this page and setup your account. There are many good datacenters and web hosts to choose from.

Note that you can leave your domain name with your current Registrar and simply point to your new servers.

Why Basic Plan?
You are a DIY’er. You do your own taxes and your own website. But, you need to talk in general about the latest tech now and then. Social media boards and online videos for example are just not helpful and could be harmful. The tools, features, functions, and support for DIY are there to assist you at many datacenters.

If you need something more complex such as custom programming, we are here for you with task-based IT services billed hourly ($40) with a half hour minimum.

Why Content Plan?
You DIY a lot of stuff, but not IT, your time is valuable. Traditional self-help or vending machine like services are not for everyone and may actually cost far more directly and indirectly than advertised. Navigating cryptic screens and routines can be time consuming and frustrating.

With flat monthly fee Content Plan, you have all of your datacenter self-service tools and support at your disposal including industry leading control panels like cPanel. And you can email or vmail or text or submit via our web site questions and requests to AXEO. We will get on it for you ASAP.

For example: You are on the way home and you forgot to setup that new email address. Maybe you could do it yourself if you could remember how. After all, it’s not something you do everyday. You simply leave us a vmail or send an email with the email address. We will set it up for you.

Most Web sites are now “built” and in some sort of maintenance mode. Small, periodic changes like a new phone number, upload a company newsletter, change to text. Not all companies need (or can afford) a WebMaster to make simple changes and updates. WebMaster OnCall, for a flat fee, provides up to 30 updates per month, or one per day on average.

 

Why AXEO?
Professional programmers often take a different approach to websites.  Just like with physical construction, you can always paint and carpet, but the infrastructure of the house must be solid.

No more features war.
We are not aware of any useful features or functions that any major, popular datacenter does not provide. Today, it is hard to go wrong.

Datacenters
There are a number of good datacenters and web hosts to choose from. We are constantly monitoring the industry and related products, services, platforms, and software tools.

No calculator required
Simple, transparent pricing for the AXEO managed services layer. No asterisk, no teaser rate, no hidden charges, no upsell, everything is included.

No credit card required
Pay AXEO with PayPal. Let’s have PayPal handle credit card security and payment processing. You never give your credit card number to AXEO. One less place that your card is on-file exposed to security risks, and one less thing to worry about. Pay with your PayPal account or pay through PayPal with a credit card.

No advance payment required
No credit card required AND no advance payment.

No games
No upsell, no limited time offer stuff, no asterisks, no long term contracts, quick account setup for you, by us. No initial “teaser” prices.

Tech support
Your first level is the tech support Tier1 and Tier2 at your datacenter.  Not helpful, too frustrating, too much tech speak, to time consuming? The second level is AXEO if you need us. High level programmers and engineers are available to help, not just tier 1, “open a ticket”, tech support.

Free migration
Already have a website? Most datacenters will migrate at least one site at no charge.

Domain Name Registration is often included
Many datacenters will provide a year of free registration fees.
