When you sign up you'll give your site a Title and a site URL. It will first appear as something like: yourchurch.reformationsites.com.
This temporary domain is set up so we can begin building your new site and your old site will remain live until we are ready to pull the switch.
Once ready there are a few nerdy things that need to be done to switch your old domain to your new site.
Yes we do! If you choose to pay annually you'll get 1 month free.
At the moment we are offering FREE Basic Setup.
We also offer discounts for new church plants. Ask for details.
Basic Setup includes picking a ready made church website template. We will add all your basic information, customize your homepage to best represent your ministry, moving over up-to 10 pages of content from your old site, tweaking all the technical stuff in the background, and launching your new site.
Advanced Setup includes all of the above but we spend more time setting up the website by working with your team to develop the branding, photography, and messaging of your church's new site. We will move over all of your page content including up-to 40 sermons. In addition to the homepage, we can develop up to 10 other pages to give them a better design and feel.
Our setup process is not a fully automated, push-button process. It’s done carefully and collectively by our in-house tech team over a period of several days or weeks, with great attention to detail. It takes planning, communication with the client, and is often times a labor intensive process for our team that just takes flat out hard work to get right.
With that in mind, the activation/setup charge for our platform is between $300 for Basic and $800 for Advanced Setup. We have an outstanding product that is trusted by hundreds of agents and advisors, backed by top notch customer support provided by real people who care about your success. Our pricing is a reflection of that.
The setup charge covers the entire setup, installation, and configuration of your website.
Some of the things we do during the setup/activation process are:
- Review your existing site to determine structure
- Communicate with you about any changes you want to see on the new site.
- Backlink Profile of current site (to maintain and improve SEO)
- Content migration from previous site (images, text, links, menus, etc..)
- Domain/DNS Mapping
- Account Creation
- Analytics configuration
- Social Media integration
- Training via Video Dashboard
- Design/Layout configuration/setup
- Various plugin configuration/setup
During the development phase our team will work with you to get your site looking the way you want, as well as helping you upload/migrate your page content from your previous site (if you have one), and teaching you how to use the back end of the site.
(**Note: The setup fee is non-refundable)

LITE vs. PRO
It all comes down to resources at this point.
LITE gives access to all the tools your church will need to begin a strong online presence but it is limited on how many posts you can create. This option is a good choice for church plants or smaller churches wanting to get a jumpstart on the web but is not in need of all the resources yet.
PRO gives you unlimited content posts and is perfect for churches that are posting content on a regular basis.
One of the mantras of the Reformation is "Reformed and always Reforming." We wish to serve churches from that particular tradition but are willing to work with congregations that seek to stay true to the gospel of Jesus Christ.
