SERVICESWebsites come in all shapes and sizes. Determining the best route for any new site involves an assessment of the information that you want to present and the aspirations you have for your site along with consideration for the future maintenance requirements.
Do you want to be able to update the content of your site for yourself or do you want to hand over that responsibility?
Do your pages need to change frequently or will the information remain the same for long periods of time?
Do you want to collect information from your visitors or allow them to post comments to your site?
Do you want to offer items for sale which your visitors can order online?

Static Page Sites are the simplest and generally the fastest route to establish a presence on the world wide web. Best for small sites with up to 10-20 pages where the content does not need to be changed very regularly. >> more
Interactive Sites provide a more rich user experience, with the user/visitor interacting with the site by means of choices and selections or form submissions; eg guestbooks and bulletin boards. These sites are most commonly a combination of a database layer and a delivery layer which tailors the content output to match the user's selections. >> more
Partial CMS Sites (Content Management System) combine the simplicity of a number of static pages with elements which require frequent or semi-frequent editing. The commonest CMS elements added to sites are news areas which can provide a simple route to providing fresh content regularly which helps in the constant battle to keep visitors returning. The CMS tools allow in-house editing/addition such that clients can easily and rapidly add to or edit sections of the site. >> more
Full CMS Sites grant the ability for the client to control virtually all aspects of their site, adding and editing content, images and pages without having to involve the web developer/designer. A number of CMS systems provide total control over all aspects including the graphical design and layout of the site. From our experience this absolute control is more than most clients want, preferring to work in a simple editing environment without the need to get involved in advanced 'coding' and HTML. >> more
eCommerce Sites allow direct sales of virtually any product over the web. >> more
