We can design and host your website, ensuring it looks good on PCs, tablets and phones. Remember, those vital first seconds determine whether your customer is hooked or turns away.

 

Can't I just use an online web builder?

Yes, and these are getting better and better. But there are several thing you need to weigh up.

  • Will it just look like my competitors' sites if they choose the same theme?
  • Will it grow with my business?
  • Can I add new features when I need to?
  • Do I actually know what makes an effective website?
  • Is the subscription actually cost-effective over time?

 

What is Responsive Web Design?

 devices 2Responsive web design, is used to build a site which can be easily read across a wide range of devices (from desktop computer monitors to mobile phones) with a minimum of resizing, panning, and scrolling.

With the explosion in the use of tablets and smartphones, many sites are unreadable on these smaller formats. To get round this, some sites get smaller proportionately, and some detect you are using a mobile device and switch you to a different version of the page (you'll usually see "m.xyz.com" instead of "www.xyz.com" in the address bar.).

With responsive web design, you don't need to have one version for a PC and another for a mobile, you design it so that it adapts to the device it is being viewed on. The site detects the screen width and uses the most appropriate layout to make it easily viewed.
