I design and build websites for businesses and organisations across the UK and beyond to expand their reach, increase sales and improve awareness of their services
All businesses aren’t created equally so I don’t provide a “one size fits all” solution. I judge each business and its requirements by their own merit.
The basics - HTML & CSS
Behind every website I build is the code. The basic building blocks of which are HTML and CSS. You may not care about this and you’ll never need to see the actual code but it is important.
By taking pride and care in how I put a website together I can ensure that search engine optimisation (SEO) is built in from the start, and that your website performs as efficiently as possible, resulting in a better experience for your visitors which in turn will lead to more business.
A properly built website will also be easier to maintain and adapt in future.
Content management systems
If you want to be able to add and edit the content on your website then you’ll need a content management system (CMS). I build sites using Craft CMS and WordPress with my preference as the Rolls Royce of CMSs being Craft but will use WordPress as a secondary option depending on the needs of the project.
You may have one product or thousands to sell, want to take bookings online, starting afresh or wanting to improve your current online presence. No matter what your needs there’s an appropriate solution for your business.
I uses systems such as WooCommerce for WordPress, Shopify or plain old PayPal buttons to achieve the necessary results for the minimum outlay and fuss.
In the rare case where there hasn’t been a ready made solution for the client’s specific need I have also built complete systems from scratch.

Choosing where to host your website can be a daunting proposition with so many hosting providers to choose from before even considering the various options available. Do you want a Windows or Linux server? How much storage space do you need? Do you need shared hosting, VPS or dedicated.
As part of my service I can also host your website, stored in a fast reliable environment—not overloaded with hundreds of other clients—perfect for the system you've had built for you.
If any problem occurs with either your website or the hosting service you have only one port of call and a local friendly voice to talk to.
