Web Design, Programming and Creative Services

I specialise in building online/web applications and stand-alone software. This includes building & looking after Linux servers, building and maintaining web sites and other creative work. I have built myself a strong reputation in the industry for problem solving and have both creative and technical skills. My 20 years of experience in Further Education enables me to explain complex, technical instructions in an easy-to-understand way.

I undertake freelance design, programming & IT work directly, and also for intermediate companies on a consultancy basis.

Web & Email Hosting

Web and eMail hosting

I usually design, build and host websites for customers but if you already have a website and just need hosting (for your domain + website + email) you can now purchase that on its own to manage yourself. I will still be there to offer help and advice if needed, and to perform some content updating for you if required, all included in the hosting fee. This will use the same high spec server infrastructure, super fast Internet connection and incredibly resiliant hosting that I use for my own sites and email. Choose from being hosted in a datacentre in the USA or in Europe, both with excellent facilities, multiple redundant connections and power supplies, hosting thousands of customer websites from 140 countries.
