No. The hosting of your site is month-to-month service. You can cancel at any time. In order to receive a refund of your setup fee when canceling, you must do so within 31 days of purchase.
We recommend namesecure.com, mydomain.com and networksolutions.com for purchasing domain names (Note: you can use any service you like for this). We do not provide domain registration, but do provide hosting and connection to email, so make sure you only register a domain name with them.

Email us beforehand and we will refund you after the purchase.
NOTE: This applies to one photographer buying multiple websites. You do not have to buy them all at the same time to take advantage of the offer. It’s available to you as long as you already have one site with us. Also, the discount works for a third, fourth, fifth… site as well.
After completing purchase, your new site will be setup and you’ll receive a welcome email within one business day.
I’m sorry, our websites must be hosted on our fast, ultra reliable servers.
When your site is set up or at anytime after that we can optionally install a blog powered by WordPress at no additional charge.

At this time we will not be taking customization requests. The sites allow for total control by the photographer. You can ‘customize’ the site by changing colors, changing fonts, adding your logo, adding an intro, moving things around, etc.

Aphotofolio doesn’t directly offer email. We suggest using google apps professional email offering for $5 a month. We use it internally and love it (can’t beat google’s spam protection). Also as an alternative to google apps, most domain registrars (like network solutions) offer email for a cheaper fee.
Your domain switchover is seamless with zero down time. You will have your domain name host change the DNS settings so that your URL will point at our server (where the new site is waiting but not till you’ve completed it). This can take up to 72 hours to complete (because nameservers cache the location of websites to save computing power) so some visitors will see your old site (for up to 72 hours) and some will see the new site, depending on where in the world they live.
Yes, we’ve developed the best client proofing/image delivery system in the world available exclusively to APhotoFolio website users. Go to EditDrop.com to learn more. As an alternative you can simply password protect or hide any of your image galleries. This comes standard with all our sites and doesn’t require add-on software.
Absolutely. We keep a copy of all the sites in a secure location on tape. We perform backups every single night.
We think it’s impossible to know how much bandwidth you will need so we don’t place a cap on the use. If we determine you are using an unusually large amount, month after month, we will contact you to find a solution that works for both of us.
I love that I am not a computer website designer and the ability for me to customize my site is so intuitive. Your video tutorial's are great. I am really happy that I chose your platform. Lyssa More Customer Stories
