Absolutely. When you first setup a website with us, we'll assign you a placeholder domain, something like mysite.ministrywebsites.biz, so that you can access and administrate your site. But, when you're ready, you can assign any domains that you own to your websites from the administrative side of the site. For more information on how to do this, see the "Domain Names" section of the help site in the top toolbar of your site.
We will bill you every month for your website per the pricing plan you select. There are no long-term contracts, no early termination fees, nor special agreements to commit to. Simply pay month-by-month for your site for as long as you want your site to remain active.
We are owned and supported by TheMarketingMinds.com, a larger growing, debt-free business with a solid reputation that they've built since 1988. To date, TheMarketingMinds.com has a 95% client retention rate that is built around customer care, access, and support along with constant innovation to new products and services.
Send us an email at any time: support@TheMinistryMinds.com. Office support hours are Monday through Friday, 9:00am to 5:00pm Pacific time (US).
Absolutely! We can take the design from your old website and convert it for our system here. Or, if you purchased a template online or have a Photoshop file that's ready to cut-up for HTML (with layers), we can convert that for you, too. We can provide a quote to convert your design, but most typically land around $500. This is perfect if you want to design your own site. See our Design Services page for more information about this service.
Sure! You have complete access to the template files via FTP. However, if modifying HTML, CSS and uploading your own graphics sounds intimidating, we'll be happy to customize your site to fit your ministry. Choose your design, send us your ministry's logo and picture for the homepage and it will be ready within just a few days. This service depends on the level of customization desired and typically range between $500 - $1,000. See the Design Services page for more information about this service.
Absolutely! In fact, this is our bread and butter! We have an amazing team of world class designers, developers, copywriters, and Internet Marketing experts. Contact us at support@TheMinistryMinds.com and let's talk!

You cannot extend the software itself, but there are many ways to bring custom functionality into your site. Our company works with hundreds of custom clients and we often create special features and functions that work with the software. You can skin an external application to seamlessly integrate with your website. You can use client-side scripting to bring extra functionality right onto the website's pages. You can even just use iframes to show through outside functionality.
We don't provide email for your domain so you can host your email wherever you wish. Email or CALL us for a few great recommendations based on your unique needs. Plans often start around $5/mo.
