How It's Built Actually Matters

Everyone has access to website builders and nearly everyone can build a website that’s functional. The problem is, have they built it right? How is it affecting your rank on Google? What technical steps have been missed? Is poor coding affecting speed or a website’s future reliability? The list is endless.

That’s where I come in. Why not work with a professional web developer that specialises in this field and knows these things inside and out? Get the most out of your website without the doubt or the hassle.

Responsive Design Always

Almost everyone knows a website should be designed using a “mobile-first” approach. Google reminds us constantly with it’s cryptic warnings about tap targets and poor scores. Do many people do it? Nope.

Every site I build is with the explicit focus on your primary audience first (70-80% it’s mobile-first). Regardless, whether on desktop, tablet, or mobile, your website is in the hands of a web developer that is obsessed with optimisation for any screen size.

Security + Performance = Me

Security is something we hope to never have to worry about. Unfortunately, when it comes to an online presence, your website will be under constant 24/7 attack by both people and bots with nothing better to do. My geography skills have improved massively over the years due to how many hack attempts I’ve prevented from around the world.

That said, security is taken very seriously and I employ a number of critical defenses to keep websites safe such as multi-level firewall protection, IP obfuscation, CDN and server level proxies, and brute force DDOS protection.

Rest easy knowing you’ll likely never have to worry about getting hacked again.

Properly Connect Your Business

Easy-to-use CMS with managed security & updates

All of my websites are built using WordPress and designed with you in mind. This means that your website will be well-supported, highly secure, fast, and reliable, but also easy to edit and free of bugs. Included with your web build is the second part of our service, which is hands-on hosting and website management.

Need help or some quick updates? Just let me know and I’ll get done.
