HEROweb Pricing Overview

Website Monthly Costs

All websites are assigned a base monthly cost based on the size of the website. The bigger a website is, the more work it is to maintain, expand, provide support for, and/or troubleshoot if something needs to be fixed. We have found that the number of products is a consistent and simple way to determine the resource and support needs of a site.  

Information Only Base Monthly Costs: $45/mo.
