• Plan

    Exceptional design starts by understanding your requirements. We ask questions so as to understand your image, goals, audience, project parameters and desired outcomes. We will define the design problems and cultivate strategies to solve them effectively and memorably. We produce wireframes that map the User Experience in order to address and quash any problems that could disrupt development.
  • Design

    Now we begin to engage the creativity that is required to start developing focused design routes. Core choices about layout, type size and colour palettes are tested within a number of ideas to identify what works best in order to communicate your goals. This phase is a collaborative process that will involve your input in order to agree on a final design for your website.
  • Build

    Once the design is signed off it is put into development. It is here where a working system that mimics the final design, is built with clean, semantic code that validates according to the W3C Org's own community developed standards. The site is then deployed to a staging environment where we will rigorously test its functionality and iron out any bugs before handing the system to you for user testing.
  • Launch

    Your system will require content. We will work with you to ensure you are unstoppable when it comes to using and populating your new website. We will then deploy the website to the production hosting server where a final pre-launch check will be conducted. Once launched we will be on hand to troubleshoot any queries you may have with regards to your site and its performance.
  • Grow

    Once your website is complete we'd like to think our relationship with you will continue. We can provide a number of services; from monthly performance reports and Search Engine Optimisation through to Mobile Site Enhancements and E-Commerce functionality in order to help grow your site.
It is our job to make our clients lives as simple as possible. That means taking care of the nitty-gritty when it comes to development, effectively translating your business goals into a technical specification and online strategy.

Web Servers responding to users!

Web servers are the base of your website and web applications.The primary function of a web server is to deliver web pages on request. The faster the web server the better the performance of your website.

  • LiteSpeed

    LiteSpeed Web Server is the leading high-performance, high-scalability web server. It is completely Apache interchangeable so LiteSpeed Web Server can quickly replace a major bottleneck in your existing web delivery platform. With its comprehensive range of features and easy-to-use web administration console, LiteSpeed Web Server can help you conquer the challenges of deploying an effective web serving architecture.
  • Apache

    The most popular web server, Apache powers around 60% of the world's web sites. Apache is great at hosting static files, or providing load balancing/failover (mod_proxy), security/filtering (mod_security), rewriting (mod_rewrite) etc. Apache is a well-audited piece of code that has "been around the block" somewhat more than the newer servers, so it makes sense to have it as the server that faces the untrusted Internet.
  • Nginx

    Our advice to our customers who are hitting performance constraints is to investigate whether they can use NGINX. All modern web servers are capable of serving a huge number of requests per second, but most like Apache will decrease in performance as you add more concurrent connections whereas Nginx's performance almost doesn't drop!

Programming Language The gears of code.

Server side code is the collection of programming languages and technologies that build your web application. It defined the rules and business logic of your website. The security of your website relies heavily on it and so does every other important aspect such as performance and user experience. This is where you want to hire the best to do the work from the start so you don't spend time fixing bad code that can really be a heavy cost and even in some cases put you out of business.

  • PHP

    The Most Popular Programming Language With a full suite of tools for building dynamic websites: native APIs to Apache and other web servers; easy access to MySQL, Sybase, Oracle, and other databases.

    Node.js is an event-driven I/O server-side JavaScript environment based on V8. It is intended for writing scalable network programs such as web servers.
  • Python

    Python is an easy to learn, powerful programming language. It has efficient high-level data structures and a simple but effective approach to object-oriented programming.
  • Java

    Java is a general-purpose, concurrent, class-based, object-oriented computer programming language that is specifically designed to have as few implementation dependencies as possible. It is intended to let application developers "write once, run anywhere"
  • Ruby

    A dynamic, open source programming language with a focus on simplicity and productivity. It has an elegant syntax that is natural to read and easy to write.
  • Perl

    Perl 5 is a highly capable, feature-rich programming language with over 24 years of development. Perl 5 runs on over 100 platforms from portables to mainframes and is suitable for both rapid prototyping and large scale development projects.
  • C++

    C++ is one of the most popular programming languages and is implemented on a wide variety of hardware and operating system platforms. It is the fastest code and sometimes we get old school and use it when it is the ideal solution to your problem.

Database Engines Store it in a safe place!

A database engine (or "storage engine") is the underlying software component that a database management system (DBMS) uses to create, read, update and delete (CRUD) data from a database. Here is a list of databases that we use regularly.

  • MySQL

    The world's most popular open source database MySQL is a relational database management system (RDBMS) that runs as a server providing multi-user access to a number of databases.
  • SQLite

    Cross-platform C library that implements a self-contained, embeddable, zero-configuration SQL database engine.
  • PostgreSQL

    PostgreSQL is a powerful, open source object-relational database system. It has more than 15 years of active development and a proven architecture that has earned it a strong reputation for reliability, data integrity, and correctness.
