THE SIMPLEST WEBSITE YOU CAN HAVE IS A SINGLE PAGE THAT JUST TELLS PEOPLE A LITTLE ABOUT WHO YOU ARE AND WHAT YOU DO, GIVES CONTACT DETAILS AND SO ON. THIS IS EQUIVALENT TO, SAY, A ONE PAGE FLYER.

IF YOU PROVIDE ALL CONTENT in easily handled form, a simple one page website can cost less than 100 (120) plus registering and online space fees. But once the format has been established you can add several more pages and a great deal more content for about the same price again.

For more complex sites like the one on the left we should be able to estimate a price in advance; but the basic rule is that the more pages you have, the better value you get per page. We usually build websites online so clients can comment as they develop. When you're happy, the site will then be transferred to your own domain, which we can arrange for you.

Sample web page

Look around on the net or through our samples to find a format you like. Or simply sketch your ideas on paper. There are practical constraints to web design but almost anything you can picture on paper is possible to reproduce onscreen and turn into a functional website. Start with your most ideal notion and we can take it from there.

Supplementary pages are useful for picture enlargements or for attaching lengthy reports, reviews and other extras. They are useful for sites with a high picture or information content, by letting visitors choose whether or not to look at them in detail.

NEWS PANEL


BREAKING NEWS

Here you can put details of recent developments or coming events.

The scrolling will stop when a visitor points their mouse at the text.

You can also add links to pages with more information.

 

If you'd like a scolling news panel on your front page that's easily done, as you can see from the example right.

THE FIRST THING is to sit down and sketch out on paper what you want. We can advise from scratch if necessary but it's easiest all round if you have a rough idea of what you want to begin with. That will also make it easier for us to give you an estimate of the likely cost.

To register a .com domain name typically costs about 50, and this has to be renewed every two years. Other names such as .co.uk, .net or .biz cost about half this and may be preferable anyway depending on the nature of your site. Reserving a space with a commercial server also typically costs about 50 a year but prices vary constantly and this is just a very rough guide.
