The monthly payments start at the end of the following month from when the website is built.
So if you purchase the website on the January 1st, and the website is developed by January 7th, your next monthly payment will be invoiced on February 14th, with a due date of February 28th.
Other than the hosting cost we have care plans that covers all the different software used to build and maintain your website, this allows for the security updates to be in place.
Do you have to pay it?
No, this is optional, but it is highly recommended as without the security updates you are potentially leaving your site exposed in the future. If you don't want our monthly care plan, but still want the security, you can purchase the software individually from its vendors but this will likely cost $500-1000 yearly.
