I specialise in providing no nonsense, low cost, easy to use websites. The service consists of building a website to your requirements and then hosting it on the Internet for you. This service can include the registration of a domain name if required. Or you can register a domain name yourself elsewhere and use that. All websites are individually designed. Design software and commercial templates are not used.

Website design

Payment

General information for all websites.

Websites will be designed to your requirements. You will be able to view progress right through the design and build stage and I will change anything that you do not like. A security login will ensure that the website remains hidden to all others until you have approved it. Once it has been approved and paid for it will be made live for all to see.

Hosting.

All websites are hosted on servers protected against interruption of service. These are located in a secure 24 hour UK data centre. A backup copy of your website is also held at a separate location.

Domain names.

All websites need a domain name. Part of the service can be to register a domain name for you. If so it will be registered in your name and will then become your property. An annual renewal fee will then be payable and this will be added to your annual invoice. Or you can register a domain name yourself at one of the domain name registration websites and use that to access your website.

UK domain names: The most popular are .uk, .co.uk and .org.uk

Other domain names: The most popular are the traditional .com, .net and .org - but there are now many more available, such as: .art, .business, .bar, .blog, .biz, .band, .builders, .click, .club, .cricket, .camera, .cleaning, .design , .center, .city, .company, .cab, .cafe, .care, .catering, .co, .construction, .cooking, .cool, .digital, .directory, .dance, .earth, .eco, .education, .email, .equipment, .engineer, .engineering, .events, .express, .farm, .football, .family, .fun, .games, .gallery, .graphics, .green, .group, .guide, .help, .healthcare, .holiday, .horse, .house, .how, .info, .kitchen, .link, .live, .life, .love, .ltd, .limited, .name, .network, .news, .organic, .online, .pet, .photos, .pictures, .pink, .promo, .pics, .productions, .photography, .plumbing, .pub, .report, .reviews, .repair, .review, .restaurant, .rocks, .run, .restaurant, .soccer, .solutions, .studio, .supplies, .supply, .systems, .salon, .services, .show, .social, .site, .surf, .team, .tech, .toys, .technology, .ventures, .villas, .website, wedding, .works, .work, .xyz

These domains vary in price and are more expensive than UK domain names. The price depends on what the domain name registrars charge. Contact me for details or go to a site such as purely.domains to see all available choices and the cost if you register them yourself.

Domain names for Short Term or Pop Up websites are free.

Emails.

If you require an email address it will be based on your chosen domain name such as yourname@chosendomain.co.uk or mail@chosendomain.co.uk etc. This is a webmail account (on-line account, maximum capacity 512MB) which can also be accessed via the email application (app) on your computer, tablet or smartphone. The service includes basic anti-spam filtering and an anti-virus option.
You may prefer to use your existing email address or obtain another email address from your existing email provider, for example chosendomain@gmail.com. This option is best if you want to take advantage of your existing providers anti-spam system or other features. Whatever you choose, links or buttons can be provided on your website to allow visitors or customers to email you directly.

Online Forms.

Instead of displaying your email address on your website you could use an Online Form. These can be useful because they can be designed to request the exact information that you may want from the sender. The sender will simply fill in the required boxes and press the send button. The contents of the form is then sent to any email address. Online forms can help to reduce SPAM because the sender of the form cannot see the email address that the form is being sent to, so spammers cannot add it to their automatic spamming lists.
This option may not be available if you want your messages to be forwarded to an email provider that refuses to handle forwarded mail, for example BTInternet and BTOpenworld.

Internet searches

Search Engine Optimisation methods will be used to help your site to be found by customers searching for you or your services. Once your site is live, requests will be submitted to Google etc., for the inclusion of your site in their search listings.
