Web Design & Maintenance

For Small Businesses, Charities & Freelancers

Responsive WordPress websites built using the latest technology

Need a professional & responsive website for your business?

Your website should be one of your greatest  assets

Your business means everything to you and its website is its online home – its digital premesis. Your business’s website is vital to its success, so it should work for both you and your customers.

Ask yourself… is your website attracting enough leads?

Is it providing excellent value to your customers?

Is the content high quality?

Does it perform well and load quickly?

Many websites might look pretty, but under the hood, they’re a big mess! With the popularity of ‘out of the box‘ page builders, almost anyone can build a website these days. I’m a front-end web designer, so you’ll get completely  custom page templates and bespoke CSS stylesheets which can’t be replicated with a page builder plugin.

With me at the helm of your website, your customers will have a great experience whilst visiting your digital premesis.

I have over 10 years’ worth of experience building, managing and maintaining websites. So, if you want a website that shines bright amongst the competition, get in touch today!

Frequently Asked Questions

I work with small businesses, charities, bloggers and individuals.

So, whether you need a business website, a small blog, an affiliate marketing project or a sparkling ecommerce solution, I’ve got you covered!

Here are some of the most common questions I get asked…

Where are you based?

I mostly work from my home office in South Wales, or from co-working spaces across Caerphilly, Cardiff and Pontypridd. However, due to the nature of my work – I can work from anywhere!

How will we communicate and share information?

I can work and collaborate with you and your organisation in a variety of different ways.

I’m highly experienced with using modern communication and productivity tools including:

  • Microsoft Teams & Office 365 Business Tools

  • Skype & Google Hangouts
  • Dropbox, Google Drive & OneDrive
  • Trello
  • Email & WhatsApp

I provide affordable web hosting using a reseller account with A2 Hosting. My clients are provided with a unique login to access the hosting area – prices start at just £2 per month.

There is also a premium option for hosting mission critical and ecommerce websites – prices start at £18 per month.

If you want to use a hosting provider that you arrange yourself, please be aware that I cannot be held responsible for technical errors that occure outside of my control. 

I highly recommend that your web hosting is managed by your web developer for faster troubleshooting and fewer problems down the line.

Domain names are registered through my Nominet Reseller account.

If you have existing domain name(s) that you wish to use, please let me know during the scoping phase.
