Web Development Services

We work as a team and directly with you to bring together the web design and develop/code your website.

Web design is not Graphic design.

Web design services can be the creation of graphic design of what the website looks like. Organizing your web page content and pages in an optimal way is referred to as web design. When building a website, often lumped together are the website design and website development. The terms web designer and web developer are often interchanged. Their roles often overlap too. The website design is what you see – how the web pages are laid out and how the overall website looks. Website development takes the visual website design (i.e. graphic design files) and codes them into a functional website. (right-brain = designer, left-brain = developer) The web design is the focus during the planning stages of building a website. Factors like the purpose of the website, your brand identity and the message you want to communicate effectively the design process.
We redesign/rebuild the website without losing any traffic. What kind of website redesign services do you need?

Redesign

Redesigning refers to changing how the website looks. Maybe your current style is outdated, looks unprofessional, your code does not search engine friendly or mobile-friendly, or the design no longer matches your company brand.

Revamp

Revamping a website, targets specific areas of your site. You may revamp your website to update content to your current business offerings, or maybe your logo has been recently updated and website design colors need to be updated to match. Technical reasons like improving page load time, search engine optimization or making the site more user friendly are other things to target.

OverHaul

A website overhaul is essentially a website rebuild. It consists of changing the design and rebuilding the website code structure. Content is often added, changed or deleted too. New website functionality may be added. A website overhaul is a major task. When done you essentially have a new website from the ground up.
“Upgrade Your Website” Old, Outdated, Broken And Ugly Websites Are NOT Helping Your Business. Whatever The Reason, We Can Upgrade Your Website.

Why Do You Need A Website Upgrade?

Part of owning a website is ongoing maintenance for updates and occasional larger scale upgrades. Think of your phone or PC. These devices are updated on an almost daily basis, with occasional major system upgrades. Technology changes quickly, you have to keep up.

To improve your professional image.
To address old and outdated content on your website.
To address old and outdated technologies on your website.
To improve security, performance and search engine rankings.
To generate new customers and business for your company.
We do more than just write code and deliver a website. We provide eCommerce consulting services to properly plan and build your website. Most people looking for an eCommerce website developer are overwhelmed at all of the options available and all of the features you need to consider when planning an eCommerce website. We will help you decide the best approach for your project.

What Is E-Commerce?

eCommerce (or electronic commerce) is the term used to define taking payments over the Internet. So an eCommerce website has the functionality built into it to take payments online. Common ways to accomplish this are through electronic bank transfers, credit cards or PayPal. An online store sells products (physical or virtual) or services online. Other forms of eCommerce may be paid registration to access a website or register for and pay for an event online.

Types Of E-Commerce Web Development

We’ve coded many different types of eCommerce websites, here are a few examples of work I have completed.
Online Stores
-Selling products online is probably the first thing you think of when you hear the term eCommerce.
Paid Membership Websites
– When registering on website members are charged a one time or recurring fee to access the website.
Token System Websites
– Users need to purchase tokens (or credits) in order to then make purchases on the website.
Accept Donations Online
– A single page form to accept donations.
Order Forms
-Simple order forms for an event, ie pizza orders.
Online Event Registration
– Sign up and pay online to reserve a spot at an event. You can view more eCommerce examples in Our website portfolio.

Are you planning a new website and not sure if WordPress is the right solution? Contact us so we can discuss the details of your website project.

Examples Of Custom WordPress Sites We’ve Built

WordPress is built to be able to add unlimited functionality to it. We’ve built many small scales and larger-scale web applications with WordPress. Here are a few examples of what is possible.
Event calendar websites with paid registration through PayPal.
Online company job board for a staffing company.
eCommerce WordPress online stores with many products and custom product options
Online product catalogs that you can search by type, brand or search a distributor database.
Product catalog websites.
Company Intranet websites.
Online Class registration websites
There are hundreds, probably thousands of tutorials on the Internet to walk you through a new installation WordPress setup. Basic WordPress set up is not hard, but some people do not want to take the time to learn how to do it properly. We’ve installed hundreds of WordPress websites. There is a right and wrong way. “One-click installations” will install it quickly, but as far as properly configuring for security, “one-click” does not address it.

Data security has become a big issue as the Internet has evolved. In the past year or so Google has been making a push for all websites (not just WordPress) to transition to https. In 2017 web browsers started showing not secure warnings in the address bar if you had a web form on the page. As of July 2018 any website that loads in Chrome browser that does not have a secure certificate will show “Not Secure”. If you’ve ignored this up to this point, now is the time to do something about it.

Why update your website to https?

Website errors and warnings look unprofessional
Ethically you should be protecting users data submitted on your website
It will give you (minor) improvement with SEO
Google says so
Hardening WordPress means making changes to a default installation to make it harder for hackers to gain access. If you did not have your new website hardened, you can/should still do it now.

USER ACCOUNTS SECURITY

A user account which has the default “admin” username and easily change the username to a value of your choice.

USER LOGIN SECURITY

Automatically lockout IP address ranges which attempt to login with an invalid username. Force logout of all users after a configurable time period.

USER REGISTRATION SECURITY

Enable manual approval of WordPress user accounts. If your site allows people to create their own accounts via the WordPress registration form, then you can minimize SPAM or bogus registrations by manually approving each registration.

DATABASE SECURITY

Schedule automatic backups and email notifications or make an instant DB backup whenever you want.

FILE SYSTEM SECURITY

Protect your PHP code by disabling file editing from the WordPress administration area.

HTACCESS AND WP-CONFIG.PHP FILE BACKUP AND RESTORE

Backup and Modify your original .htaccess and wp-config.php files in case you will need to use them to restore broken functionality.

BLACKLIST FUNCTIONALITY

Ban users by specifying IP addresses or use a wild card to specify IP ranges.

FIREWALL FUNCTIONALITY

firewall rules will stop malicious script(s) before it gets a chance to reach the WordPress code on your site.

BRUTE FORCE LOGIN ATTACK PREVENTION

Website Maintenance Services

Websites require effort to keep them up to date with content, code technologies and security. Ignoring it for months (or years) leaves a (not so great) impression of your online web presence. On the Internet, your website is available to the world 24/7. For a small business, this is an incredible opportunity to gain exposure to growing your business exponentially. Neglecting your website of ongoing website maintenance accumulates into a bad impression. You are potentially losing the opportunity for your company. Having a website maintenance plan will keep your site presentable, functional and ensure you can recover if disaster strikes. Websites are software, just like your computer, your phone – they need upgrades and updates to stay secure and continue to work properly. With a website maintenance plan, you should keep a current full backup of your website. Websites get hacked, accidents happen – code gets deleted, databases corrupted.

WordPress Maintenance Services

If your website runs on WordPress, you have an added layer of web maintenance to consider. WordPress releases core code and plugin updates regularly (potentially daily if you have many plugins installed on your site). There are also potential security issues unique to WordPress that need to be addressed when you first install WordPress. If you ignore WordPress maintenance, you will get hacked eventually. I fixed insecure, hacked and infected WordPress websites on an almost daily basis. I offer both monthly WordPress maintenance plans along with hiring me one time to address WordPress development or updates.

What Does Website Maintenance Include?

Website maintenance services can include the following :

Code maintenance (Like WordPress plugins, or third party scripts)
Content management and updates
SEO maintenance to improve and monitor your search engine rankings
Website security to protect it from getting hacked or injected with malware
Website performance – fast web page load time is important for users and search engines
Website management of services like hosting, domain renewals and secure certificates

How Much Does Website Maintenance Cost?

There are a lot of factors that will effect web maintenance costs and how long it will take to complete.

The size and age of your website
The complexity of your website
The type of maintenance needed. ie content updates, finding and fixing website errors, or ongoing WordPress maintenance
How often you update your website
If you need a one time fix, or monthly maintenance contract
If you need after hours or weekend website support
If you want web hosting and maintenance services
