Subscription-Based Websites

Get a fully managed, custom website with affordable monthly payments.

Sign up for Sandfire Design’s subscription website service, and you’ll get a brand-new, custom website EVERY THREE YEARS. With hosting, updates, SEO, and more included in the monthly fee, you’ll never have to worry about your website again!

Why Choose a Subscription-Based Website?

There are a number of reasons why a subscription-based website may be the optimal choice for you. Perhaps the total cost of a new website all at once is more than your budget allows. Maybe your previous website designer ‘ghosted’ you, and you want a plan that ensures your designer will be available to you when you need them. Or maybe you simply prefer having a plan that gives you the convenience of affordable monthly payments for a website that you never have to worry about.

With a subscription-based website plan, the cost for building, hosting, maintaining and updating your website is spread out in affordable monthly payments.


Why get a new website every 3 years:

Your website becomes outdated

The internet is constantly changing, and part of that includes what makes websites attractive, modern, and most importantly, high-converting. Plus, Google is always changing how it ranks websites in search results.

If you’re not updating your website every so often, your online presence will soon start to look dated and unprofessional.

Your web designer gets better

Yes, this is a shameless self-promotion, but the team at Sandfire Design is continuously improving their design skills, not to mention expanding their library of premium plugins.

Plus, you get the added benefit of working with someone you already know and trust, and who understands you and your business.

Improve what's working; fix what's not

After 3 years, we’ll have a pretty good idea what’s working on your website and what isn’t.

A full redesign is a great opportunity to build on and improve the parts that are working, and change or eliminate entirely the parts that are holding you back.

We resize every image on your website and compress it before uploading it to your site. This plays a huge role in site loading speed.

We also offer license-free stock images.

Discounted Hourly Rate & Priority Support

Discounted hourly rate for work requiring more than one hour, and expedited service for any technical support issues or website change requests.


Premium Plugins

We have a vast collection of premium plugins, many of which add cool functionality to a website. We use these plugins as needed in our builds, at no extra charge.


Google Search Console Indexing

We register every site we build with the Google Search Console to get it found online even quicker.


Fathom Analytics

We use Fathom Analytics to track your website visitors in a way that doesn’t impede on their privacy. Fathom Analytics is a Canadian company that doesn’t compromise privacy for data. You can get access to your account to view your website’s analytics anytime you want. 


On-Page SEO

We use a popular Search Engine Optimization plugin to add meta-data to each page on your website prior to launch to help it get found in a Google search. If you’re looking for more advanced SEO services, we can refer you to a trusted colleague.


Monthly Maintenance

Website hacks and malware are not fun, but unfortunately, they’re very common. We make sure your website is protected by keeping your theme and plugins up to date and routinely running security checks on it. You will get a report emailed to you to show you what we’ve done.


Fast Loading Speed

We use several premium plugins to help make your site load as quickly as possible, coupled with secure and reliable hosting from Storm Internet.

The cost of your domain is not included in your subscription website package, but registering one for you is included, if required.

Setup fee is pre-payment of the first three months. This will allow us to collect content from you, and get rolling on the design and build of your new website, with the goal of having it launched by the end of this period. Monthly payments will commence on the 4th month.
