With over 15 years of experience in web design, development and hosting, we can build any kind of site you want – from a basic single-page blog through to a full eCommerce platform. If you need to integrate with other services, that’s no problem.
We use WordPress as our primary Content Management System, as it is the most widely used platform in the world (over one billion sites use it!) and there are literally thousands of free themes (templates) and plugins (add-on apps) available. Once it is set up, you can maintain the site yourself, or we can do that at very reasonable rates. With WordPress, you also get a blog which is a great way to connect with your audience and keep the site updated (search engines like that). You also get 12 months backup protection free with your first year’s hosting.
If you have an existing site that you want to keep, we can do any updates and changes required – all platforms are supported – and we can even do a WordPress conversion of your current site while keeping the design and content. Once you have a WordPress site, you’ll get a mobile-friendly version included, and it’s easy to change the theme later if you want a new look.
Once your site is built, you are free to do whatever you wish with it – including move it to another hosting company, or have anyone else work on site development – you are not locked in to using us to maintain the site, unlike the so-called ‘free’ services which restrict you to using their hosting and their costly in-house development services.
With more web users getting their content through mobile devices, it may be better to say that a website should be desktop friendly rather than mobile friendly. A mobile-friendly website is now a requirement, not just for a good user experience but also for higher search engine rankings. All our sites are designed to be ‘fully responsive’ on mobile platforms, i.e. they resize to fit the screen properly, while maintaining a desktop layout for larger screens.
From photo galleries to animation libraries, social media integration to text messaging services, there are thousands of free plugins to choose from, all produced and maintained by independent developers. All the popular web services have WordPress plugins. You can use as many as you wish to add features to your site.
When it comes to integrating with an external web service or gathering input from your users, there is usually a plugin available which will do the job. But if these don’t meet your requirements, or when you need to present your Company’s data online, you may need a custom script written or a custom plugin developed. We offer a full development service at very reasonable rates.
Graphics and animations
First impressions last, and the appearance of your site is important. If you need a completely custom designed site, we can build you a theme from scratch using jQuery, Bootstrap and the WordPress API.
Your website tells your story, but it’s often difficult to put that into words. We can write all the text, to your directions, from a few simple notes, saving you hours of work. This is not limited to a new website, we can work with your existing site as well.
Search Engine Optimization
All new sites are fully optimized for search engines. If your existing site needs updating, we can improve both your search engine placement and how your site appears in search results. We can provide you with detailed search statistics so you know who is using your site and how they are discovering it, and advise on advertising and monetization.
