Internet consultancy, web design, site hosting and domain registration
We can handle the entire process of setting up, developing and maintaining a web site, or any part of it. To discuss your individual requirements please
- Free consultancy visit and web site specification
- We come to you to discuss what result you want from your web site and how to achieve it. Then we send you a specification document based on your requirements and our experience. Recommendations include selection of a content management system (CMS), choice of standard templates / skins or custom-built, colours / layout / graphics, selection of programs (eg. shopping cart, discussion forum, form-mail) and choice of payment gateway for e-commerce sites. A fully-itemized quote will allow you to judge the cost of all options.
This service is free to local businesses.
- Discounted domain name registration
- If you don't already have a registered domain name we will help you choose one and register it for you at a discount price, eg. $66 (inc GST) for 2 years registration of yourname.com.au ($140 from other suppliers). If you already have a domain name you can transfer it to us to take advantage of the same prices.
- Web site design
- Designing your site involves putting into practice all the information contained in the specification, and then presenting the content you provide to best effect. Use of a CMS (highly recommended) ensures that future changes to either content or style can be made simply and safely. We can develop custom templates to give your site a unique style or you can choose a standard skin to get your site up and running quickly and at low cost.
Setup and hosting
- Our hosting plans range from low-cost hosting-only to fully-managed packages that let you sit back while we do everything for you! Or if you prefer to host elsewhere that's ok - we can set up your site on any suitable server. We will also install and set up any programs required and thoroughly test the site on completion.
- When your site is ready for launch we set up links from other sites and submit it to search engines. From then on, if you choose our assisted or fully managed hosting we monitor your site regularly and keep everything running smoothly. Common jobs include checking visitor logs for unusual acivity, checking search engine rankings, updating programs (particularly security updates), monitoring user feedback, keeping news items up to date and all kinds of improvement and development.
