Frequently Asked Questions
Do I have to pay the entire amount of my website project up front?
No, you don't. While most churches do choose to make an "in full" up-front payment, it works better for others to choose the "4-pay" option, splitting the project into four equal payments over four months.
Why does Converge charge a setup fee? Other church website companies don't have that.
That's true, there are other companies that don't charge a setup fee. However, you're also on your own to build out the website in those scenarios. With Converge, you'll get a dedicated Launch Partner that will handle the technicalities of building out each page and bringing it all together into a launch-ready website. The setup fee allows that to happen, and ensures your new website will get the quality touch you're looking for.
I'd like to purchase a website from Converge, but I'm going to use my own hosting. Is that cool?
Unfortunately, it won't work. Converge is built on a proprietary content management system that is deeply integrated into our cloud servers. Because of this, your website will have to be hosted with Converge.
Do I have to choose addons now, or can I purchase them later?
While it definitely makes your project flow more smoothly to integrate addons during the initial site build, they can always be added on at a later date, even after your new site is live!
That monthly hosting fee seems kind of steep. Cheaphost.com has web hosting for $1.95 per month. What gives?
You're right. Web hosting is crazy cheap. However, the monthly service fee from Converge is more than simple hosting. While you are getting your website hosted by our super-fast cloud-based content delivery network, you're also getting a powerful content management system geared specifically for churches. Best of all? You're getting technical support from our ministry-minded English-speaking support staff. When something goes wrong, you're going to want to communicate in English to someone in your country that understands where you're coming from. You probably won't get that with cheaphost.com. For less than the cost of a typical monthly cell phone bill, you can have that peace of mind.
If i decide to move my website away from Converge, can I just upload my Converge site to a new server with a different company?
While any graphics and text on your Converge website belong to you, Converge retains ownership of the content management platform itself. In order to transfer the website to a different company, you'd definitely need to hire a third party to build out the template on a new content management system.
STILL NOT SURE? REST EASY.
Converge delivers results, guaranteed.
