Classic, Low-Maintenance Websites for Small Businesses and Organizations
Websites don’t have to be complicated or require a lot of maintenance! A handcrafted, hand-coded website, that’s made without a database or software system, can be the perfect solution for small businesses or organizations.
These websites don’t need software updates. They look great on mobile devices. The website can run for years without being updated or edited.
A one-page website can be very inexpensive to develop. These are perfect for small businesses.
Additionally, I’ll walk you through the entire process. I’ll answer your questions and take care of all the technical details.
What Do You Need to Get Started?
- Domain Name – A domain name is a unique name or address for a website. In order to make sure that the names are unique, all domain names are registered. There’s an annual fee for registering the domain name.
- Website Host – A web host is a company that provides server space for the files that make up your website. I recommend SiteGround. (It’s the company that hosts this site.) You can also register your domain name through them.
- Website Text – Websites typically provide address and contact information. You may also want to include business hours, testimonials, your experience or photos.
- A Website Developer – That’s me! I can walk you through the whole process and answer any of your questions. If you think this sounds like a good solution for your business or organization, contact me. We’ll schedule a time to talk.
Mobile-Friendly, Responsive Websites
Your website will automatically be displayed properly on whatever type of device a visitor is using. It doesn’t matter if your site is being viewed on a cell, tablet or desktop.
Why is that important? The number of website visitors looking at sites with mobile devices can vary by country and industry. However, many of my customers find that 40 to 50 percent of their website traffic comes from mobile or hand-held devices.
No Maintenance Necessary
Many modern websites are built with WordPress. It’s a great solution for businesses and organizations that want to blog or update content frequently. The issue is that WordPress systems have software. That software needs to be updated on a regular basis.
Hand-coded websites don’t need updates. They can run for years without being touched at all.
This website solution is perfect for:
- small businesses
- homeowners associations
Beyond the Basics
These websites can go way beyond the basics. Your hand-crafted website can include premium features like contact forms, tabbed content, comparison charts and slideshows.
Interested in seeing website statistics? I can help you get a free Google Analytics account and install the code for you.
Security is important to website visitors. SiteGround, the hosting company that I recommend, offers a free SSL certificate. I can get this set up for you so that your website will be HTTPS instead of HTTP.
