WHERE WILL MY WEBSITE BE HOSTED?
DesignThrust can host your website on our dedicated servers, or we can work with your existing or selected hosting provider, or we will help you select a third-party hosting provider based on your needs and goals. Either way we will get you set you up with a subscription to a Hosting Provider.
DO YOU OFFER A FREE TRIAL PERIOD?
Because of the initial assessment and output that we’ll be doing at the start of your website project, we do not offer a trial period.
