Website Development

We provide website development and hosting for contract and non-contract customers. 

Your website is your company's on-line image and therefore needs to be well designed in both functionality and look.

We make use of Joomla which is a CMS (Content Management System) whereby the pages are dynamic generated and allows for easier content changes and website expansion.

Joomla is one of the world’s most popular open source CMS. With millions of websites running on Joomla, the software is used by individuals, small & medium-sized businesses, and large organizations worldwide to easily create & build a variety of websites & web-enabled applications.

We have partnered with a company that provide us with templates for Joomla, which is of very high quality. They currently have more than 70 templates to choose from. We then take your chosen template and customize it to your liking with your company logo and colours.

Joomla has many extensions which makes it possible to create a websites that is feature rich to extend your business's on-line presence.

Some of the extensions available are:

- Facebook, Twitter and RSS feeds integration.
- Google maps
- Fill in and survey forms
- Mobile applications
- Photo and document libraries

- And many more. For a full list of more than 10,000 extensions click here.

Depending on your skill set, you will be able to make changes to your website yourself after a two hour training session. If you prefer that we take care of your website for you, you can forward all updates to our web development team for implementation. Changes to your website will be charged at our normal support rates. 

Continual website maintenance and upkeep is necessary to make sure that the Joomla system is up to date and patched with the latest security patches and updates. This will ensure that your website will always be compatible with the latest operating systems (Windows, Linux, Mac, etc) as well as tablets and smartphones.

We can also take care of your SEO (search engine optimization).  Search engine optimization is the process of improving the visibility of a website or a web page in a search engine's search results. In general, the earlier (or higher ranked on the search results page), and more frequently a site appears in the search results list, the more visitors it will receive from the search engine's users.
