We do not. Your business domain should be purchased by you and within your control. If you already have a domain name, we recommend leaving it where it is, and we will take care of pointing it to our servers when your new website is ready to go live. We recommend GoDaddy or Google Domains if you need to purchase a new domain.

Yes. Our affordable website packages cover the cost of website hosting on a safe, reliable and fast server. Your website will be backed up on the server daily as well as off-site every month (depending on your site needs). You can see what we do to maintain your website here on the Website Hosting and Care Plan page. You will choose one of these plans once your 18-month term is complete.

Keeping your new website safe, secure, and running efficiently is a huge priority for us. For this reason, we will not install your new website on any other servers. However, once your new website is live on our server, you can cancel your current hosting plan if it doesn’t have any other websites or email connected to it. Contact us if you have detailed questions regarding our dedicated servers and hosting.

Because of the increasing complexity and requirements of email, we do not offer email addresses at this time. We recommend using a dedicated email service such as Google’s GSuite or Microsoft Office 365 for your organization’s email addresses. However, we will setup the necessary MX records to make your email addresses work with the outside email service of your choosing.


The development time varies based on which plan you choose and what the requirements are for the project. Our general time frame for standard website build is 6-8 weeks. However, all time frames depend on the complexity of features and client engagement

We have listed out the differences between the limited and unlimited website edits here on this page as well as common examples, scenarios and what’s not included.

There’s no option to cancel or downgrade the agreement early. This is because we distribute the cost of your initial website design and development (in addition to the ongoing website edits, hosting, and back-ups) over 18 monthly payments, and most of the design and development happens at the beginning of the agreement term. However, you’re welcome to pay off the total amount of the agreement at any time, and we will honor our commitment to provide our promised services for the remainder of the agreement term.

Yes, but because we distribute the cost of your initial website design, development, and included features for your particular plan over 18 monthly payments, you would be required to pay the difference in cost between your current plan and the upgraded plan for the months that have already passed  in addition to the increased cost per month of the new plan.

Because all plans are set up on monthly auto pay using a debit or credit card, we cannot accept checks for your monthly payment. This is to avoid interruption in payment and to cover the cost of development as well as ongoing edits.

Yes. We build every website using WordPress, which makes it easy for you to login and make changes to your website. However, some changes are more difficult than others, and while we do provide instructional videos for certain features, we do not provide website training. We do offer ongoing website edits as part of all of our plans so you don’t have to hassle with making changes to your website.

After your website is live and depending on your plan, basic updates and content revisions will be completed within 5-10 business days. All update requests are submitted via our online form unless otherwise arranged. New pages and features take longer depending on the complexity of the request. For more detailed information about revisions, see our Turnaround Times page (coming soon).

Once your 18-month agreement is complete, you own your website and all of it’s content. If you choose to move your site to another company or host provider, we’ll provide you with a backup file that contains your entire website. However, you may decide you like ongoing website edits, or maybe you want to downgrade to a lesser package or just go with a more basic website hosting and maintenance plan. We support whatever decision you make.

Web Design Reviews from Our Clients

Working with Melissa and SWD was a great experience! I had some immediate troubleshooting needs with my old website, and she went above and beyond to meet them. From the beginning of website design conversations to the final launch, she was patient and responsive, helping me clarify my vision and represent that effectively online. Since the site has launched, I'm getting more traffic and booked appointments. Thank you, SWD!

I am a member of the board of directors for Rocky Mountain Honor Flight, a Colorado non-profit association that supports local Veterans. When it came time for us to update our website and establish a more secure and reliable web host, we chose Simplified Web Design. Melissa and her staff have been incredible to work with. They started by taking the time to learn what it is we do and how we do it. They worked to understand the critical requirements of our website and our goals with the re-fresh of our site. Melissa's team provided an excellent structure to organize our data and fresh new design ideas to really make our website POP and work as efficiently as possible. The team also collaborated with our other vendors to ensure the website integrated our donation and online application processes seamlessly. The teams commitment to on-going support has also been outstanding, always available to help answer questions and guide us to enable self operation as much as possible. All this was done right on budget and with excellent communication throughout. On behalf of RMHF, we thank Simplified Web Design for all they have done, and all they are doing to support our mission.

I needed to build a website from scratch. Two, in fact. I spoke to a number of web designers and always felt I was getting the hustle. Then I spoke with Melissa, and she was great. She listened. She offered good ideas. She helped me define my needs and a whole lot of things I hadn't thought about. She was always pleasant, responsive, and on time. And now that the sites are complete, she shows the same level of service in addressing my little nits and questions. She's really that good. When you're putting together a business there are so many things to think about. But I had immediate trust in Melissa's skills and understanding. I would not hesitate to recommend her to anyone, and I know I will be working for a long time to come.

I greatly appreciate how easy it is to communicate with Melissa. She has (patiently) walked me through several tech oriented features that enhance our visibility. Highly recommend Simplified!

I had Melissa renovate my very outdated website for my acupuncture clinic and I am thrilled with the results. I had never done a project such as this and Melissa was so kind and professional in guiding me through the process. It really felt like we were on a team. She followed through on the original web design timeline and gave me excellent ideas along the way that I would've never thought of myself. Since the launch of my site, I have seen an increase in clientele; her work on my site makes me feel like my business has been elevated in a way that it never has been, despite 11 years of being in business. If you're considering work on your website, look no further, you will be so happy with the result!

Simplified Web Design was simply AWESOME! I had a pretty complicated and unique request for a website that included an online store with digital downloads. I didn't even know where to start. Melissa and her team put together a beautiful website that looked simple, but was complex on the back end.She trained me how to manage the website, and to use the backend to fulfill custom orders. She set up the SEO plan so that my website became discoverable on the first page within a week, which is almost unheard of. Melissa had many ideas for how to make the site better, and we executed. I am very proud of the work that we did, and look forward to using this website to launch my new business.I would recommend Simplified Website Design to any business. Thank you Melissa!

Melissa had a clear vision of how my website should come together. I submitted pages of information and she was able to sift through it and create a vision that made sense. She had amazing focus and quickly worked to put it together. I was so happy with the end result and all the extra things she added! I would highly recommend her to anyone needing a polished, professional and easy to use website!

Melissa has built numerous websites for my company and I couldn't be more happy with her work. I’ve worked with several web designers in the past with mixed results and Melissa has been a savior to us over the past year. She’s attentive & timely with her projects. Her follow up with our clients is impeccable as she always waiting on them rather than them waiting on her. I recommend Melissa with the highest regards…you will not be disappointed!

Melissa was our *Business Doula* while we birthed this new business and website. She was knowledgeable and built our confidence by simplifying the process during this potentially stressful time. She supported us through challenges and took us farther than we thought we could go!I have been delighted with the work Melissa has done for two of my businesses and have seen direct, tangible outcomes of the work with her. She is easy and refreshing to work with her, as she really does simplify and streamline what others in this industry make complex and unmanageable. I am so relieved and excited that I have been able to work with her over the last 3yrs.Several of my colleagues have also utilized her services at my recommendation and are equally as satisfied with their experience working together and their results. My only regret is that I didn’t start working with her sooner. Melissa has this great (unusual) blend of technical, design and people skills. Having worked with her before, we upgraded to the full package and got a lot of her time for the second project. She really helped us hone in our message(s), the look and feel that we present to the outside world, and get us optimized beyond what I could imagine. She was excellent at accommodating our changing needs and various personalities. The work and the outcomes was excellent.
