Is your email professional?
As a small business owner, it’s important to maintain a professional image and build trust with your customers. One way to do this is by using a professional business email instead of a personal email address such as [email protected]
Having a professional business email shows that you take your business seriously and are dedicated to providing quality products or services. It also allows you to easily separate your business communications from your personal emails, making it easier to stay organized and focused on your work.
Additionally, using a proper business email can help improve your company’s online presence and search engine optimization. Search engines are more likely to rank websites with business email addresses higher in search results, which can increase visibility and attract more potential customers to your business.
Using a proper business email can improve your company’s online presence and search engine optimization
Using a professional business email is an important step for small business owners to take in order to improve their image and online presence.
While there are significant benefits to using a business suite from Google or Microsoft, sometimes you just need to keep it simple. We offer secure and ad-free email linked to your business domain.
Our email works with all mail clients, including those from Microsoft, Google, Apple and Mozilla and also includes webmail, so you can view your messages anywhere – a great fallback if your email client or device develops a problem
It uses IMAP, so you can synchronise your mailboxes across desktop, tablet and mobile. Never misplace an email again.
We understand how important email is to business, so all our email is hosted away from our web hosting on rock-solid servers in our central UK data centres. All email is encrypted in transit using TLS for security and privacy.
Make the switch today and start building trust and credibility with your customers.

Frequently Asked Questions
Q: How long does it take to build a website?
A: We can build a website in as little as a week.
Q: Will my site look like my competitors?
A: No, unlike some of our competitors, we don’t limit your choices to a few generic templates. We will customise every template to perfectly fit your brand.
Q: Can I change the images?
A: Of course, you can supply your own images and/or find stock images you can use that will fit the design
Q: Can I change the layout?
A: Absolutely. You have full control over how you’ll site will look to make it perfectly fit your personality & brand.
Q: I don’t have a brand (or I don’t want to use it). Is this a problem?
A: It depends. We can build using what you have already but you might want our designers to create something fresh and new, from a simple logo redraw up to a full rebrand.
Ordering & Payments
Q: Can I order and pay online each month?
A: Yes. All plan payments are online via Direct Debit
Q: Can I pay in full instead of Direct Debit?
A: Sure. Drop us a message and we’ll send you an invoice
Q: Who actually owns the website?
A: During the first year, we retain ownership of the site (not your content) until the balance is paid off. At this point, website ownership transfers to you. If paying in full, the site is owned by you from the start
Q: What happens after the first year?
A: If you’d like us to continue managing, hosting and supporting your website then you’ll move to a Care Plan. If , instead, you are leaving us at that stage (we’ve not had one yet) we’ll package and supply your site for you to transfer to your new provider.
Q: Are there any additional costs?
A: No. Our Website Plan prices are all published and fixed. Should your requirements change during the build there may be additional work needed and this will be discussed with you at the time if it requires an adjustment to your monthly fee.
Q: Do I need to do any updates?
A: No – and we recommend you don’t as we’ll review and test on a copy of your website where needed.
Q: Are all plugins included?
A: Yes, free plugins are included in all plans. Premium (paid) plugins are included with Site Management Plans & bespoke websites.

A: No. Minor Development changes are made using included Support Time included in Site Essentials and Site Management Plans. TimeBank can also be purchased separately for this kind of work.
Q: How do I make changes to my website?
A: You are free to make changes yourself to content to layouts using the Elementor builder, but with up to 60 minutes of support time available each month most of our clients ask us to do it.
Q: How do I get support?
A: Simply visit our ServiceDesk and log a request for our technical team to sort for you.
