Have you ever wanted a nice website for yourself or your business? Have you ever looked into the difficulties of developing your own technical ability, and decided not to proceed? I did much the same for a while, but eventually I took the plunge and started learning how to build beautiful, functional websites. Now that I have the experience needed, I thought it would be a good idea to offer web development services to the world, so if you like what you see in the carousel below, get in touch and let me know what you want me to put together for you.
My Services & Costs
Every website needs a domain name. That’s the address of your website, but it’s more than just that. In addition to an address, it also acts as a conduit for emails to you, either set up as a mailbox attached to the domain or as a forwarder to your own person email account somewhere else. Importantly, having an email address linked to your website is a must if you want to promote yourself as a professional.
Part of setting up a domain name is making sure you adequately secure your website. For sites that do nothing but present some information to the world about you, no extra care is needed, but if you want people to submit data to your site, either for something as simple as a contact form or payment details for goods and services you sell, then it may be necessary to purchase an SSL certificate, which allows you to use the https protocol and shows a secure lock in the URL bar at the top of the page.
If you host your site on my Virtual Server, I can include an SSL certificate free of charge from Let’s Encrypt.
My costs for building a website are as follows:
And for ongoing hosting (which is only available after I have built your website, as I need full control over everything on my server):
Keep your website on Aegis Web Design's server
