We will confirm the final domain name cost in the Design and Planning stage, including giving you options for multiple years at a discount.

Building the Website

We use either Joomla, Drupal or Wordpress, which are all open source Content Management Systems, and were designed to make it easy for users with little to no programming experience to maintain and make changes on their website.
Once your website is fully developed by us, managing the actual content on your website is simple and easy to learn.
CMS’ also store all of your online content for you in one place and is available to anyone with access to the website, meaning the need to send multiple different files to different individuals is no longer necessary.
Better yet, content management systems are also very convenient for people on-the-go. You can login to the back-end of your website from anywhere. All you need is a computer, tablet, or mobile device and an internet connection.
In today’s world, the last thing anybody wants is for their website to be hacked, especially ecommerce website owners. Websites can be especially vulnerable, and are often targeted by hackers, to steal personal information. However, content management systems are consistently tested by an army of developers and computer scientists in an effort to protect users against any and all potential security threats.
Additionally, there are countless plugins and tools available that are also individually designed to increase your website’s security.

Final costs will obviously vary depending upon your requirements, however we will always provide an initial estimate upon your first enquiry, with a firm price given once the final design and layout is known. To provide some certainty we offer two starting packages as below.

We can also arrange for additional features such as galleries, portfolios of work etc to be included on your site. Plus if you require an e commerce store we can arrange and help you set up the website as well as a credit card merchant facility to enable you take credit card payments on your website.
