Frequently Asked Questions
Do prices increase annually?
No, there are no annual price increases. WebAcumen clients benefit from our Triennial Price Promise. Prices stay unchanged for 3-year cycles, after which a 10% increase is applied.
E.g. John signs up in 2021 for the Femto Package (our most popular package) at R570 per month. For the next 3 years, John will continue to pay only R570 per month. When the 3-year cycle is completed in 2024, John will pay R627 per month, a 10% increase of only R57.
Can I cancel my package at any time?
Should you wish to completely cancel your package before 15 months and keep your website, you will have the option to buy the design in order to own it. In the case that you do not wish to own the website, all your data will be exported and provided to you and the website (the design) will be terminated. We do not keep backups of canceled websites. WebAcumen carries a 30-day termination notice period. You will be liable for one (1) final month’s fees, excluding the month in which you cancel, following your termination notice as the service remains active for a final 30 days. If you are an annual customer and have settled hosting for 12 months in advance, a refund will be calculated taking the final one-month fee into account.
Can I transfer my website to another web host?
Most certainly. Should you wish to transfer before 15 months is completed, you will need to buy the website to own it.
If 15 months have passed and you wish to transfer to another web hosting provider, you simply request that the new hosting provider submit a transfer ticket to us which we will accept and release your website to your new web host. But why would you do that?
