Website Design and Hosting
The online identity and presence of your website reflects directly on your business.
Web design and development is the skill of creating presentations of content (usually hypertext or hypermedia) that is delivered to an end-user through the World Wide Web, by way of a Web browser.
The different areas of web design include web graphic design; interface design; authoring, including standardised code and software; user experience design; and search engine optimisation.
Web hosting is the service that gives your website a place to live on the Internet for 24 hours a day, 365 days a year.
The intent of web design is to create a web site which is a collection of electronic files which reside on a web server and present content to the end user in the form of Web pages.
Having a website that really works for you can bring much better returns on investment than any other printed media ad, as the Internet offers you a global platform 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.
Your website has to be housed on a computer somewhere which is always connected to the Internet. This computer on which your website will live is called a Web Server or Internet Service Provider and is owned or also rented by your web host. Web hosting is in essence a subscription service.
In order to continually make sure that your website is permanently connected to the internet, you will have to pay either a monthly or yearly subscription. These amounts are used to maintain the web hosting server your website is on and pay for the space and connection to the internet.
Generally many websites are hosted on one web server, which enables you to get affordable web hosting and a complete website hosting solution including domain registration, email accounts, website design and search engine optimization.
Our designing, development and hosting of websites are also done at very favourable prices.
The basic design and development of a website usually consists of the following:

Certain rules and conditions are applicable when we host your website. An annual registration fee is applicable for a .co.za website.
