Web Design Services

Custom Web Design

With a custom designed website, we tailor the website look and function to the way you want, and can match the style of your existing print materials. You are guaranteed a choice from up to two custom designs concepts, created specifically for your project. (included in our all-inclusive plan)

Rough outline of the process:

  • First we chat to discuss the goals and needs of your website. Ideas you may have about the visual look of the website, as well as what content you require on the site.
  • I will supply you a quote on services.
  • I present an example web design concept, designed specifically for your website.
  • You OK the design, or we work together to modify that into exactly what you’re after (perhaps changing the color, slight layout modifications, etc.). You’re given many opportunities to provide feedback, so we can be assured that you’re getting the website that you want.
  • A domain name is then chosen and registered.
  • Site is then coded and placed with webhosting company.
  • Once the general website look and functionality is established, I then create all of the pages, adding functionality such as drop-down menus, slide shows, and the written materials that you have provided.
  • Website is then submitted to be included in search engines such as Google, Yahoo and Bing etc.
  • Google analytics tracker is set up if you so desire.


Domain Name Registration

Your domain name tells the visitor how to find you and can be (yourname).com, (yourname).ca, (yourname).net, (yourname).info etc. etc. The name you choose should be as short and descriptive as possible, you want your visitors to remember it easily. (included in our all-inclusive plan)

Domain names with DataHelps are included in our all-inclusive pricing, although if you require additional names we can also help you out there for $25 per year. We do all the leg work.


Web Hosting

Once you have a domain name and a website you will need a web host to display your website on the net. Once again in our all-inclusive pricingthis is included. (included in our all-inclusive plan)

But if you choose to go it alone (not advised for the novice) we recommend HostPapa for your hosting needs. We have used HostPapa as our web host for over five years and find them to be extremely helpful and reliable. HostPapa web hosting starts at $3.95 per month.
