Website Packages web package title

Stilton and Wine go together like a match made in heaven.

We want to help take the mystery and stress out of setting up a Website, so we've developed a range of Stilton Studios Website packages (based on wines!).

Each Website package offers a range to suit a wide variety of needs;

from the 'Beaujolais' or 'Burgundy' – ideal for business start-ups to get that initial foot on the Website ladder,

or our 'Port' Package ideal for established Businesses looking to enhance sales/growth and further potential.

Use the links on the left to find out more...

social networking packageFully Featured Web Shop

(Prices range from £2390 - £2500)

NOTE: This is a completely integrated whole package. For a smaller e-commerce solution please see the shopping cart add-on for the PORT package.


  • Information architecture and planning
  • Choice of designs
  • Construction
  • Testing all and upload new Website
  • Search Engine Optimisation – Optimise content & one round of site promotion to all major search engines e.g. Google and Yahoo
  • Content manage additional pages such as; about us, how to find us, contact and home' etc.

Domain Name and Hosting:

  • We would suggest using our regular reliable hosting company for a standard server with third party gateway such as Paypal or for a secure server with payment gateway. May also require a security certificate. See below for more information.

To set-up an e-commerce facility with approximately 15 categories. Initial 5 product pages to be set-up by us, subsequent pages to be added and managed by the client.

You have two options regarding the type of e-commerce site you wish to go for, we will outline the pros and cons of both so you can make an informed decision.

The Third party gateway is a software and network service that operates between your Website and the bank authorization systems. The Internet payment gateway is the Internet equivalent to the credit card swipe terminals used in your local retail stores. A third party gateway is hosted on a secure server such as Paypal.



OPTION 1: Third Party Gateway - £2390.00


  1. Cheaper than the secure server to set-up and run

  2. Less bank costs

  3. Costs are deducted at source or each purchase
  1. Cart has no secure server padlock icon. Padlock only appears when customer is entering account details (less customer confidence). Main transaction is however, as secure as other system



OPTION 2: Secure Server - £2500


  1. Generally, customers will be more confident in purchasing from a shop whose entire order process is SSL (secure socket layer) secured, rather than only at the payment process

  2. Padlock appears at the very beginning of the payment process, ensuring customer confidence

  3. Choice of payment gateway as recommended by your bank


  1. More expensive to set-up and run than a third party gateway

A secure server requires an 128 bit SSL Certificate per year and secure server hosting. This is required for the secure transaction ( required yearly ) £180


Training for Option 1 and Option 2 :

  • 6 hours Training in the use of the E-Commerce System included. Additional training can be arranged on request at additional cost. Please contact for details.

This price does NOT include any bank charges or fees from third parties such as payment gateways. You will need to contact your bank to set this up.
