Website services

Want a web site without the faff?

If you need a website, internet presence or just your own email address I can help with everything from basic set-up to complete web sites:

Registering your domain name

Typically:

  • checking on availability eg www.yourdomain.co.uk
  • registering (*)
  • setting up your own email address
    • eg fred@yourdomain.co.uk
  • setting up Outlook / Outlook.com or other email client to work with your new email addresses

 Hosting Your Website

I host web sites using www.oneandone.co..uk (why? see below)

  • low cost – typically ISPs will charge 50% to 100% more
  • local support
  • I buy web space in bulk and pass savings on
  • All the same facilities as a basic oneandone package
  • multiple email addresses
  • full ftp capability with one mySQL capability
  • no bandwidth caps

Why do I use oneandone for hosting:

Over many years experience using services from many different ISPs I’ve found that the folks at oneandone answer the phone when I need them too. It’s as simple as that (oh and by the way, their service is reliable as well)

 

Updating and existing site

If your existing site needs an update but doesn’t justify a new site then perhaps I can help:

  • small updates and fixes to freshen up your site
  • new pages and section
  • transfer to another hosting site

Developing a custom site

A complete new site developed from your ideas. See some examples here

Creating a web site you can edit and manage yourself

Using WordPress (a system used by over 60 million web sites) you can have a web site that you can update yourself:

  • Select a theme for your site (there are thousands out there, many of them free)
    • I can advise you on the pros and cons of the themes you like
  • Work with me to customise it: make it your site
    • colours, layouts, special features such as
      • email capture, auto email shots
      • social media
      • calendars, event management and more…
  • And if you want to save time and money you can
    • add the words and pictures yourself
    • update the site as you go…

Here’s¬† few examples of WordPress sites that started out as free themes.

 

This site is built on a lightly customised “McKinley” theme chosen for plain simplicity.
