Website Design & Development
A website today needs to capture the viewer’s eye, the information it contains needs to be easily accessible and finally it needs to be fast. The typical internet user is a fickle being, they need to be impressed by your online offering, they need to find it easily and on average if it takes longer than four seconds to display – well they’ll just move along meaning loss of potential viewers/customers.
At Ivory Web Designs, we strive to meet these three ‘must have’ requirements when designing & developing any website. We can cater for the blogger, the music band, the community, the school, the SME and beyond. We’ll plan for your budget and come up with a solution that will have both you and your wallet smiling.
Is your current website looking tired or outdated? Does your website require additional features? We can offer a service to overhaul your existing website and bring it right up to date or add that new feature which would make all the difference to your online business.
We can look after the task of checking and registering the domain name(s) for your website. Choosing a domain name is important and choosing the correct one can enhance your search engine rankings. Let us help you!
We offer very competitive hosting options for your newly created website, facilitating any size of site required with a guaranteed 99.99% uptime on either Linux or Windows platforms. We also handle domain registration, sitemaps, search engine registering, protection from malicious crawler bots and url redirecting. Our favoured hosting solutions support latest server side technologies (PHP, ASP etc.) and can facilitate the most popular content management system platforms including WordPress.
Content Management System
It is becoming ever more common and popular for clients to be able to directly edit portions of their website’s content and publish those changes without any assistance. Situations where this may be required would include updating a daily lunch or dinner menu on a bistro/restaurant website or updating services, products or special promotional offers being offered by a business at any given time.
This can be achieved using what is known as a Content Management System (C.M.S.). To break it down in simple terms, if you can manage to edit a Microsoft Word document, then you will be able to make use of the C.M.S. options we offer without any hassle and without the costs of asking your web designer to make regular small changes.
Search Engine Optimisation
Search engine optimisation (SEO) is the process of affecting the visibility of a website or a web page in a search engine’s “natural” or un-paid (“organic”) 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. Let us help maximise the ranking performance of your web page with the major search engines used today.
Social Media Integration
Social Media platforms such as Facebook, Twitter, Linked In & Google+ have become central to how online business is conducted today. In fact they now play a very important role in how your web site is ranked by the big search engines such as google and bing. We can facilitate social media integration for your website, thus inter-linking all online aspects of your business and improving the all important search engine ranking.
Cross Browser Support
Any website created is tested on the “big five” web browsers available. These five browsers typically make up 98.6% of web browser usage worldwide. They are as follows:
- Google Chrome
- Mozilla Firefox
- Microsoft Internet Explorer
- Apple Safari
Any website created is tested on multiple platforms including desktop PC, laptop, iOS tablet & phone, windows tablet & phone and android tablet & phone. You can see a graph below depicting platform usage in Ireland from August 2014 to August 2015. Portable devices are an integral part to website design today as they currently make up approximately 38% of internet usage in Ireland and trends show this percentage will increase. It is imperative that a website should work well on all these platforms.
