A website design project has often a timeframe dictated by the client. We will meet a deadline if you have one in mind. In the creation and completion of a new website, the most often delay is due to waiting for content (text/images) to be sent to us by the client.
You can update websites by using many different methods. We will be glad to advise you which CMS or method will suit your business needs, but in general is up to the client the method and the functionality to build into your website design. If you have a small website and will only wish to make changes very infrequently, then it is more cost effective simply to ask us to do these changes for you. Other chosen methods are largely dependent upon how much information, pictures or data you have and how you store this information at present. You can use the content management system we provide and update particular sections of your website or individual products/pages/services. We can also add databases if you wish or we can provide functionality such that you can upload your entire product ranges to the website using spreadsheets.
You need a professionally developed website, a domain name, and hosting facilities for your website. You also need the website to be uploaded onto your hosting facilities and promoted to the search engines.
It is helpful to us if you are able to provide text and photographs in electronic form – for example, the files output by a digital camera and the words in MS word or similar format. If this is not possible, we can help get your information ready for use on the website.
If you have an existing website we would look at it and give you a quote for updating it.
A Domain name is a word for example “www.pnddesign.com” users enter in their address bar of an internet browser to visit a specific web site. Most people find it easier to remember a domain name rather than a series of numbers for IP addresses.

The authentication of the identity of a Web site is carried by a digital certificate called an SSL certificate that and encrypts information sent to the server using Secure Sockets Layer (SSL) technology. Encryption is the process of scrambling data into an undecipherable format that can only be returned to a readable format with the proper decryption key.

An SSL certificate contains the following information:

The certificate holder’s name
The certificate’s serial number and expiration date
A copy of the certificate holder’s public key
The digital signature of the certificate-issuing authority

RSS (Really Simple Syndication) is a family of Web feed formats used to publish frequently updated content such as blog entries, news headlines, and podcasts. An RSS document (which is called a “feed” or “web feed” or “channel”) contains either a summary of content from an associated web site or the full text. RSS makes it possible for people to keep up with web sites in an automated manner that can be piped into special programs or filtered displays.

 

Most modern internet browsers such as Internet Explorer 7, Firefox and Safari have built in RSS readers while older and obsolete browsers such as Internet Explorer 6 and Netscape browsers do not support RSS formats. Users with older browsers must install third party Feed Readers in order to enjoy the benefits of RSS.
