If you have been hacked in the past, you will know how important it is to keep your site and components up to date. Don't think that this is the responsibility of your website host or your website designer, this responsibility falls on you as the website owner, and keeping your website updated can be a daunting task. If you believe that your website is not important enough to be hacked, you are wrong again. Websites get hacked, not for the content or information that they may access, but instead to use your domain for banking phishing attacks, sending out spam email, or even to upload fake PayPal and Itunes sites. Your site may already be hacked, you may not know it, and prevention is always better than cure.
The Joomla Upgrade Executive Package does not include any management of content. As a subscriber to this package, you will receive a 30% discount on our normal R450 per hour management rate. Please remember that this is a one year contract, as one year is necessary to pay off the components that are loaded.
So to sum it up, the Joomla Executive Website Package should cost a minimum of R17 850 per year OR R1487.50 per month.
So how can we give this away at a massive 70% discount? It's simple, as a developer we hold all the licenses for the products we add, so you don't need to pay for them individually. The time quoted is however genuine, and this is where the real discount comes in because we do a few sites at a time, this helps to distribute the costs.
