so, what do you know about web design?
why get a website?
50% of small businesses in the UK still have no online presence at all – it’s an unbelievable statistic considering the benefits you get from being online. Harnessing the web as a businesss tool is so important at present. Many companines choose not to have a website as they see their business as a purely offline entity; beauticians, personal trainers, plumbers, driving instructors and any number of other local businesses measure their success by the amount of offline relationships they build, but they’re often unaware that the Internet can play a huge part in that. Let’s stay with the statistics for a moment to highlight just how big the opportunity is. As of August 2013, 85% of consumers use the Internet to find local businesses, so it’s crucial to get the basics online and in place.
what is responsive design?
At it’s simplest, responsive websites respond to their environments. So whether you’re using a latop, ipad or mobile, your website will appear professional and usable on any device. The number of devices that can access the Internet is increasing by the day, and more and more of these devices are using different screen sizes. Responsive design allows you to cater for all of these devices and screen sizes using a single website. Here at tp. all of our new websites are built responsively, so you can rest assured that your customers will have a great experience whatever device they may be using. It has been found that 90% of multiple device owners switch between screens to complete tasks, so it’s important that your online presence stays consistent, wherever it‘s been accessed.
what is hosting?
Most people have heard the term “web hosting”, but very few people know eactly what it is and why it is needed. Websites are stored on web servers, which you can think of as a computer folder in the cloud. Most of us are familar with folders on any standard computer, you create a file structure and organise your documents. In a nutshell, web hosting is pretty much the same thing. When we create your website, we put the files onto one of our web servers, which is connected to the Internet, making them accessible to the world. We offer hosting at a fixed fee to all customers that have had a site built by tp. Our hosting has 99.9% uptime as standard, so you can be sure your website is always available when people are looking for it. We’ll also manage your web space for peace of mind.
