Each option begins with a non-cost, no-obligation consultation with one of our designers at Virtual Café Press.

$375 [payable in three monthly installments of $125]

BUILD-YOUR-OWN [OPTION 3]: Attend our BASIC WEBSITE BUILDING seminar in your area. We receive many inquiries from small churches and businesses interested in obtaining a website, or updating an existing one, but the cost of hiring a design service may be daunting for a financially-strapped entity. By the end of the one-day seminar you will have a basic, functional website. [See below for more information.]
BASIC + SEMINAR [OPTION 4]: We create your website (Option 1: $375) and a representative from your congregation or business attends one of our seminars to learn to maintain your website (Option 3: $89). Separately, the cost of both services is $464; but the cost for purchasing both services is only $425 through the month of June, 2019. To host a seminar in your area, feel free to contact us at virtualcafepress@gmail.com, and let us know if you would like us to respond via email, text, or phone. 
Website Security

A Secure Socket Layer (SSL) can be added to your website, so that all information sent to and from your website is encrypted. An SSL allows visitors to see that your site is secure and that they may enter their information with confidence.

For a small, additional charge, our design team can help you design an electronic logo for your organization. The file will then be given to you to use at your discretion.

Additional Startup and Maintenance Fees

There is a fee of about $14 yearly to keep your URL (the name of your website, e.g. http://www.virtualcafepress.com) registered with the DNS (the Domain Name System that links your URL to the IP address particular to your website hosting service), the first year of which is first paid during the registration of your URL. This payment is made to the service through which you obtain your URL. Every URL for every entity is handled with an IP address (e.g. One of Google's IP addresses is 209.85.227.104).

There is a fee to have your website hosted on a server (paid either on a monthly or yearly basis), due at the beginning of service (About $30 a month: Some large-scale eCommerce sites, hosting with extended customer tracking options or large media storage and streaming add to that monthly cost). This payment is made directly to the website host, as VCP is not a website hosting service.

WEBSITE PACKAGE DETAILS

OPTION 1 DETAILS: The first installment is due following the initial consultation; the second installment is due one month from the date of the first payment, and the third is due a month after the second. Monthly maintenance fees are $45 a month, unless maintenance requires significant changes in a particular month.

OPTION 2 DETAILS: We custom-create your website at a rate of $75 per hour. This may take up to 40 hours including consultation and creation, and is payable in two installments.website creation process begins by discussing your objectives in creating and/or maintaining your new website. We will provide three layouts from which you can choose. We will refine those designs based on your feedback, then create the final website as approved by you. The first payment installment is due following the initial consultation for the project and an approval by you of the wireframe (the flow of menus , objects and objectives; a schematic or skeletal framework of the website), and prior to the actual work on the website; the second payment installment is due upon your final approval of the design, and the completion of the project. Websites that require more than 40 hours will be billed at a rate of $75 per each additional hour.

OPTION 3 DETAILS: Attend one of our BASIC WEBSITE BUILDING seminars in your area. We receive a lot of inquiries from small churches and businesses who are interested in creating or updating their own websites, but the cost of hiring a design service can be a bit much for an already-financially-strapped entity. So we have begun offering seminars to teach churches and others to design their own websites using our services.

In preparation for each seminar, participants will be given access to an online survey containing questions for you to answer—to help you think about your objectives in creating a website. Please answer the questions as best you see fit. This will help us plan according to the needs of the participants in each seminar.
The seminar will guide you through a simple, fun, even inspirational process, helping you identify your objectives and focus.
Prerequisites: Each participant needs only a basic knowledge of the internet. Each participant is asked to think about a domain name for their website.
The cost of the seminar is $89 per participant and includes:
  • Text
  • Workbook
  • Step-by-step instruction and
  • Online and phone access to our helpline during the first three months that your website is in operation.
  • Access to the VCP helpline via email, text, and/or phone for three months following the seminar.
  • By the end of the seminar you will have a basic, functional website.
Unless other arrangements are in place, each seminar is usually hosted by local ministerial group, and conducted at a church or other site with students from other churches or businesses in attendance. Each group is responsible for securing the site at which the seminar is to be held. The cost per participant is $89; but if the host church wishes to charge additionally for fundraising purposes, the fee up-charge will go to the host church/entity. For example, if a church chooses to charge $149 per participant, VCP still charges the $89 per person rate, while the remaining $60 per person goes to the hosting church/entity.
Each seminar is limited to 10-15 students. This allows each participant to receive more individualized help during the course of the seminar.
Seminars are one-day long, and unless other arrangements, as follows:
9:15 am – 9:30 am Sign in
9:30 am – 10:30 am Class Session
10:30 am – 10:45 am 15-minute Break
10:45 am – Noon Class Session
Noon –1:30 pm Lunch Break
1:30 pm – 3:00 Class Session
3:00 pm – 3:15 pm 15-minute Break
3:15 pm – 4:00 pm Question & Answer Session
Seminars may be scheduled to take place any day of the week, schedules permitting, except Sundays.
For the seminar, it is best to bring a laptop, iPad or Windows tablet. Each participant should have one of the following web browsers installed on their device: Chrome, Firefox or Safari.
Each participant should access the VCP Survey prior to the seminar and answer as many of the questions as possible. We understand that some of the questions may not be effectively answered until the seminar is in progress. We will provide blank copies of the VCP BACKGROUND OBJECTIONS SURVEY in paper form at the seminar.
Note: Paper and pens are provided.
