Search Engine Optimisation (SEO)It's important that your website is seen by your users and potential customers and search engines play an extremely important part in this. All websites that we create, are designed to work well with search engines.
Content Management Systems (CMS)A Content Management System or CMS, is a system designed to make it easier for anyone to create, edit and update a website - without learning code or using special software. Every website we build uses a market-leading CMS that meets your needs and one that works on any browser (including your mobile device).
BespokeWe work with you to design and build websites that match your brand and meet the needs of you and your users. You can make alterations along the way, review everything on a test site and when you're ready - we'll get everything up and running for you.
ResponsiveWith so many users accessing the internet using mobile devices such as smartphones and tablets, its vital that your website adapts to smaller screen sizes. Every design we create is built as responsive from the ground up and will work across all major devices.
E-CommerceWe also build e-commerce sites (online shops) that enable your users to purchase items directly from your website. These can be integrated with services such as PayPal or merchant banking and include features such as order management, shopping carts and the ability to save billing information.

Protect your Visitors
Your visitors need to know they can trust you and that their data will be safe when using your website. By installing an SSL Certificate on your website you'll be proving your identity and encrypting anything sent to your server, such as personal or financial data. This means even if someone is listening, they'll not be able to read what's been sent.
Our range of publicly trusted and highly cost effective SSL Certificates are issued by GlobalSign, the SSL provider who secures millions of prominent websites worldwide. GlobalSign is a WebTrust accredited Certification Authority (CA) with over 15 years experience.
We offer you the highest levels of security, confidence and trust in your website and online presence.
SSL Certificates should be used to secure:
- Provide confidence to your visitors
- Secure payment transactions
- Issued by GlobalSign
Website Transactions and PaymentsIf you're offering items or services for sale on your website, it's important for you to protect your users and their personal information.
User Information Including LoginsIt isn't just payment details that need to be secured, you also need to make sure login information and passwords are protected. The importance of this is proven by the recent high profile hacking scandals.
Webmail and EmailBy setting up a secure certificate, you are also providing some protection to your users email services.
We use high performing Dell rack mounted web servers, located at a Manchester, UK based datacentre featuring world class resilient infrastructure including multiple levels of 24/7 security, stable high-capacity power supplies, fire protection and environmental controls.

Utilising HSRP (Hot Standby Redundancy Protocol) on the routers and rSTP (Rapid Spanning Tree Protocol) on switches, which along with duplicating all core infrastructure provides hitless failover in case of a hardware failure to ensure world-class uptimes.
The importance of having your website hosted inside the same country as your target audience is critical. Firstly, your website is hosted closer to your visitors so is going to load as quickly as it can for them. Secondly, being on UK hosted servers will improve your UK search engine rankings with search engines such as Google. Google will look at the UK IP address and determine that your website is relevant to the UK audience which can help improve your web traffic.
