The first step in building your website is your domain name. If you have one already, great. If not, we can help you register your domain name (www.yourwebsite.com). We do not suggest domain names with dashes, hyphens or other characters unless your they are part of your organization's name. Furthermore, domain names should be as short and simple as possible and the best choices are .com addresses. Contact us and we can secure a domain name for you. If the one you had in mind is unavailable, we can help find other solutions!
The next step is to create a web hosting account, where all of your web pages, documents, and media will live. Think of your domain name as a street address and the web hosting as the actual house that the address belongs to.
Website Design & Development – Free Consultation!
Your website is the face of your business when you cannot be. Do you like your current website and does it represent you or your business well? A bad website can deter potential new clients. Whether your website needs a facelift or you need a brand new site, we can help! We design custom websites based on client needs and develop them within the WordPress platform. We deliver a stunning website that allows the client the ability to easily manage their own site; make minor updates themselves, as well as post new content to keep their customers engaged. The sites we build are responsive too, meaning they adapt to the device they’re viewed on. If the way your site looks on mobile devices isn’t important enough, Google’s recent “mobilegeddon” implementation, requires all websites to be built in responsive design, putting many older websites at risk of being banished to the back end of the search results. You definitely don’t want that!

Waiting for a website to load is no fun for anyone. Most website visitors will not wait if your page is taking a long time to load. Slow loading pages not only have an adverse effect on users experience but also on search engine ranking. Google will now punish pages that take longer to load with a lower search position than a page that loads quickly. Your best bet is to shoot for a 3 second or less load time and your visitors and Google will be happy. So how do you fix this on your WordPress website? If your site is suffering from long page load times, we can do any of the following to help solve this problem:
- Reduce size of media by clipping videos or compressing images
- Use a caching plugin
- Minify CSS and HTML
