Web development

Web development and related services

We regard it as essential for any professional who puts themselves forward as professional to have an online presence of their own to compliment. This is where web development comes in. While an online presence could include social media platforms, that is not what we’re referring to in the first instance. The starting point is to have your own website and for professional people, no one should own your name but you. Whether your website name is www.first-name-last-name.com or the name of a small business the following components make that happen: A) Web hosting B) Domain name, and C) Someone who actually puts together your website.

  KEEP IT SIMPLE

Most often we advise that a good place to start for a single professional or small business/services firm is simply the following:

  • WEB HOSTING: A BASIC web hosting package: R85/ month

  • DOMAIN: A .co.za domain (if you are mostly situated in South Africa): R89/ year

  • WEB DEVELOPMENT: A STANDARD level website development: See below, and you can divide it into monthly payments up to a year.

IN OTHER WORDS: Except for the first year the all inclusive monthly charge is R92.42 that covers domain (.co.za = R89 yearly) and hosting (BASIC = R85 pm) charges. The website development aspect (actually building the website) could be divided into a monthly fee. Together with the hosting and domain charges that price, only for the first year and at no deposit and no interest comes to R550.67 monthly. A deposit would bring this first year’s monthly payment down significantly.

DIY OPTION

Not listed on this page is an option where we implement the web framework for you and you essentially build your own website via drag-and-drop technology. We think that professionals can perhaps spend their time more effectively than doing their own websites. However, the considerable advantage not only in price is that at least you know that the drag-and-drop technology is based on quality and that you could pass on the development to us when you so wish. There are various pit falls with many other deals that incorporate free websites or drag-and-drop technology. Ask us, we’ll gladly help you decide depending on your context.
