Standard website agreement terms
You can host your website yourself if you wish but we do not provide any ongoing support for this.
Between “us”, 9G Limited, and “YOU”, the client stated in the instructions and agreements
You are hiring 9G Limited located at Marlowe Innovation Centre, Marlowe Way, Ramsgate, Kent, CT12 6FA to design and develop a website solution as outlined in your SCOPE to be agreed on after stage 1 is finished and you have completed the foundations sessions.
We’ll install WordPress on our server, set up the admin panel for you and then create a custom WordPress theme that will mirror the design we created for you.
You will be able to add new top level and secondary pages to the site navigation yourself in WordPress. We’ll also set up a blog for you to publish posts that will be displayed in a reverse chronological order with pagination.
Plugins are a way to extend the functionality of WordPress and make the admin panel easier to manage. We’ll install a limited number of plugins for launch, which will include a simplified way to manage the navigation, automatically backup the database monthly, SEO tools so you can manage the title and meta description tags, and an XML site-map generator which will help Google index your pages automatically.
We’ll test the website in a variety of browsers, including Safari, Chrome, Firefox and Internet Explorer. We’ll also test the responsive design on multiple screen sizes. We’ll test the functionality of the site to ensure there are no errors or broken links and then hand it over to you for review.
You’ll have two rounds of minor revisions or tweaks to the sites, and then we’ll launch.
Once you’ve tested the website and are happy with its functionality, we’ll make the website live!
You will have a 30 day warranty period from date of launch allowing us to fix any display issues or errors that may occur. Changes or updates are not covered in the warranty. Any errors outside of this warranty are not covered unless you have a paid maintenance plan with us.
Testing popular small-screen devices such as mobile phones and tablets is essential in ensuring that a user’s experience of a design is appropriate to the capabilities of the device they’re using.
We’re not a website hosting company but we do provide hosting and domain registration for our clients as a managed solution.
We know from experience that fixed-price contracts are rarely beneficial to you, as they often limit you to your earliest ideas. We don’t want to limit your ability to change your mind or make decisions later when you might be better informed. The price at the beginning of this contract is based on the length of time we estimate we’ll need to accomplish everything you’ve told us you want to achieve, but we’re happy to be flexible. If you want to change your mind or add anything new, that won’t be a problem as we’ll provide a separate estimate for to cover the additional work.
We can’t guarantee that our work will be error-free (we’re human!) so we can’t be liable to you or any third-party for damages, including lost profits, lost savings or other incidental, consequential or special damages, even if you’ve advised us of them.
We agree to use our best efforts to fulfil and exceed your expectation on the deliverables listed above. You agree to aid us in doing so by making available to us needed information pertaining to your website and to cooperate with us in expediting the work.
Functionality or feature requests above and beyond those listed in the budget and/or the functionality specs may be considered out-of-scope and an amendment to the budget will be recommended. Projects that go dormant for longer than 45 days will incur a fee to resume work at the discretion of 9G Limited.
We’re sure you understand how important it is as a small business that you pay the invoices that we send you promptly. We’re also sure you’ll want to maintain a positive working relationship and keep the project moving forward, so you agree to stick tight to the payment schedule provided above.
You agree to pay the SCHEDULE payment upon receipt of the full invoice which will act as a deposit for the project. Every invoice after that will have 7-day payment terms. In the event payment is not made within 7 days, 9G Limited reserves the right to stop work until payment is received. If no further payments are made 9G Limited reserves the right to close the project without refunding any past payments.
In the event that we incur legal fees, costs and disbursements in an effort to collect our invoices, in addition to interest on the unpaid balance, you agree to reimburse us for these expenses.
You have the right to modify, reject, cancel or stop any and all plans or work in process. However, you agree to reimburse us for all costs and expenses we incurred prior to your change in instructions, and which relate to non-cancellable commitments, and to defend, indemnify and hold us harmless for any liability relating to such action. We agree to use our best efforts to minimise such costs and expenses.

Building your website on WordPress is a good start as WordPress has some great Search Engine Optimisation fundamentals built-in. Creating unique and interesting content on a regular basis for your website is also critical to increase your visibility amongst search engines.
