Do you need, or want, a new website? I have been designing sites for nearly twenty years, and could help you create or revamp your online presence. I have experience of building websites “by hand” in HTML, and of setting up and running dynamic sites using WordPress. Please browse the options below, and get in touch to discuss your requirements and pricing.
A static site is one where the relevant files are put online and served up to your visitors just as they are. The benefit of this option is that every web hosting package will be able to handle this type of site. The downside is that, if you wish to make changes to the site, the files must be modified and re-uploaded. Once your site has been created and put online I will deliver a copy of your website files so that you can make any changes you wish in the future.
What do you get with this option?
- All static HTML pages
- Custom design to your specifications, including graphics and logo
- Free changes to copy for thirty days after completion. After this time, you may decide to either manage the site yourself, or we can discuss retaining my services to facilitate any future updates.
Dynamic websites are those where the files are uploaded, but when a visitor arrives at the site the page they see is generated there and then. The benefit of this is that you can include much more up-to-date information in your site and, with WordPress, you can make changes instantly online without having to re-upload the files. The downside is that you will need a more comprehensive hosting package, supporting PHP and MySQL. You will need to weigh the convenience of being able to update your site “on the fly” with the slightly higher cost of such a hosting package.
What you get with the Dynamic option:
- 1 WordPress-powered site created and configured to your requirements, including the option to select one theme from the range at StudioPress
- 30 days’ support for any questions or issues as you learn to manage your site. After this time, if you decide that you do not want to manage the site yourself, we can discuss retaining my services to manage the site on your behalf.
Example, using a StudioPress theme: MindTrek
If all of this seems a bit bewildering, don’t worry. I’m more than happy to have a chat with you to discuss what you want to get from your website so that we can work out which solution would be best for you. It might even be that, during our discussion, we come up with an alternative idea that would suit you better. Just drop me a line and we can talk about your future home on the Web.
Use the form below to get in touch and tell me you’re interested in having me build a website for you. We will discuss your requirements, timescales, what you can expect from me and what I will need from you to make your site design a success.
Please note that it will be your responsibility to purchase a domain name and suitable web hosting package. I am more than willing to help you with these if required – just ask when we are discussing your site.
