From initial concept through to live website and email hosting. Whether you need a small one page website, or a website with hundreds of pages. I can provide the right solution at a price that you can afford.
The process starts with an initial meeting to sketch out your requirements. I will then provide a website mock-up to give a flavour of what the site will look like. Once you are happy with the layout and design, the website will be built with periodic updates to check you are happy with the process.
Your website will be built using WordPress which enables you to update the content yourself. WordPress is very easy to use, but basic training can be given if required. WordPress is extensible through thousands of plugins which can be used to extend your site – from a simple booking calendar right up to a complete e-commerce solution. For simple one page sites, you can opt to have a static website which will greatly reduce the cost, but you lose the option of editing the content yourself.
For your first year you will get free hosting for your website which no obligation to continue after the first year. Subsequent years will be charged at a rate based on the size of your site, but prices will be comparable to other hosting services.
Most cheap hosting packages force you to share a web server with sometimes thousands of other sites which can affect the speed and responsiveness of your site. I will host your site on a business class dedicated web server with the option for using your own IP address for added security. The server is hosted in a UK data centre directly on a the internet backbone. Your site will be secured with a free SSL certificate so your visitors know they can trust your site.
As an additional service, I can look after your WordPress installation for you – applying security updates for you as they become available.
Do you have ongoing IT support needs, but have no one to turn to for advice or help? I provide IT support at reasonable rates on a pay-as-you-go basis. There are no minimum charges, so if an issue takes twelve minutes to resolve you will only be billed for twelve minutes.
Using remote support software I can instantly access your PC or server to resolve issues without incurring travel costs.

Application & Database Development
Do you need a bespoke line-of-business application to make your business run smoothly? I have decades of experience in designing and implementing applications to solve specific problems.
Previous projects have saved businesses weeks of staff time by replacing manual data capture with desktop and web based forms. Data is then automatically processed and output to a format which was imported directly into the client’s billing system. The project paid for itself within the first six months of use.
I provide a range of graphic design services – ranging from simple logo design to full brochure layout. I can liaise with the printer of your choice, or provide a full design and print service. Charges are usually charged on a time-spent basis.
