Successful websites are user-friendly, engaging with great images and well-written content, features, and functionality optimised for search.
Design and build
GDA design and build WordPress websites with the premium Avada theme. In our experience, this theme is versatile, well-supported, cost-effective, and popular with clients. The vast number of plugins and tools provide the freedom to be creative and manage and grow your content, whatever size organisation.
Users expect mobile-friendly websites when browsing, while Google indexes mobile rather than desktop use. According to recent stats, over 60% of global Internet users use mobile devices to go online. All our websites resize seamlessly on iOS or Android smartphones and tablets. Responsive design provides the best user experience, retains visitors, and drives traffic.
Visitors also expect secure websites. Having a website address that begins with https instils trust and credibility for users and improves Google’s ranking. Browsers will highlight websites without encryption as ‘Not Secure’ or with an unlocked padlock symbol. All our websites have an SSL certificate to keep you and your visitor data safe and secure.
Our team develops fully integrated online stores, using the excellent WooCommerce platform. From startup to high-volume transaction business, eCommerce increases traffic and sales.
Hosting and domains
As an agency, we believe your domain name and web hosting are best registered in your name, not ours. IONOS offer packages to meet your needs with UK-based 24/7 customer support. We point you in the right direction, making the process easy.
Maintenance and support
Websites are ‘live’ and need looking after. We offer our Update and Backup Service, where we check in around every six months and carry out necessary updates to WordPress, the theme, and plugins and patches. This ensures features remain working as they should and helps to resolve any security or bug issues. We also run a database and file backup and store on the agency’s cloud drives that in the event of problems with your hosting provider or getting hacked, there is an earlier version to revert to if needed.
