Siteground - Fast and reliable hosting

Option 2: Host your website through Black Swan IT

For the comparable price of $130 per year, I will set up your hosting account, liaise with Siteground on your behalf when required, invoice you each year when your hosting is due for renewal and, once paid, renew your hosting for you. Contact Black Swan IT if this is the option for you.

Watch out for hackers

All websites are vulnerable to hackers! Do not be complacent about this. 

I have had to restore many hacked websites to their former glory - and NONE of these websites were hosted with Siteground.

Siteground has a superbly secure setup that will be constantly working to protect your website. Despite this, I recommend that all my customers purchase the additional Siteground service of Hackalert Malware Monitoring for the low cost of $30 per year. This will monitor your website for unusual activity that may indicate hacking. It may make the difference between a beautiful web presence and a catastrophic loss of business and data! Contact Black Swan IT for further details.

What they say about us


We were delighted with the website Black Swan IT created for our company.  Julia came up with an impressive, cost effective solution which met our design brief and has provided us with great support along the way.  The finished product is a professional, absorbing and eye-catching website that we are very pleased with.


I can't thank you enough. The site is perfect. I have read through it and it is what I wanted. You enabled my vision to come true. I would highly recommend your company to anyone wanting to build or refresh their website.


We asked Julia to redesign our old website last year and we are thrilled with the result. It was clear during the process that Julia was genuinely interested in producing an effective new website, working with us and making professional suggestions along the way. Julia is patient and professional and a pleasure to work with.
