Website Design and Hosting
Responsive Website Design
Your website must be usable for visitors, no matter what devices they use. Our custom, fully responsive web design will help you find, reach and engage your customers wherever they are, no matter what devices they use.
We don’t use pre-designed templates. Instead, we design your website 'from the ground up' so it is unique and fitting for your business or organization. Our website design is driven by existing branding elements, your audience, and functional requirements. With those things in view, your website will look and work the way it should for your organization.
When we design a website, we have our designers work directly with clients throughout the design process. This approach is faster and considerably less expensive than others. When the client has one hand on the steering wheel, or at least is looking out the windshield along the way, the project stays on course.
When we design a website, we meet our clients' expectations, period. Our design process is open-ended. That means we continue to work with our clients throughout the design process until the client is happy. That’s the way we have always done it, and why so many satisfied clients have trusted us to design and build multiple generations of their websites.
We are not a hosting company per se. We only host the sites we build, manage and support. All of our sites are hosted on our dedicated servers at Liquid Web, which is the highest rated managed hosting company according to NPS 2016 (https://npsbenchmarks.com/). Our customers, large and small, expect reliable hosting. That’s what we provide.
While others stuff websites on shared servers, we had our dedicated servers built to our specifications. They are fast, '6-Core-Solid-State-32-GB' fast. And with many of our client’s websites also running through Cloudflare, they almost load before you can type the URL. That’s shameless hyperbole but you get the idea.
If using a shower in a gym without flip-flops scares you, so should hosting your website on a server with 'who knows who'. We are serious about security. We have deployed our own security methodology on our servers. We don’t claim to be bullet-proof – no hosting is – but at least we make it hard enough that maybe the malicious types will move on to easier targets.
How many backup copies of a website is too many? We would say there’s never enough. But we go to extremes to retain at least two weeks-worth of backups for every website we host. And we use Raid-10 arrays on our production servers so if there is ever a drive failure it can be replaced and ‘rebuilt’ quickly with minimal speed loss.
