We create beautiful AND functional websites
We provide Web design & Web development services
Developing a website for small business is not simply about making it look pretty – though we do take great pride in making our client’s sites look fabulous!
A good web design company starts at the beginning. Why do you want a website?
Once we understand your objective and your business – we work on bringing your concept to life.
Consider your web design as the front end – the layout, the design and the user journey. Web development is the back-end. The coding to bring the design to life.
Our websites are built using WordPress CMS which is by far the most popular and best content management system available. Our designers and developers are available to customise your site to suit your specific needs.
Our sites are built to be mobile responsive – which simply means when someone is viewing your site on a mobile, the content is displayed in a way that is easy to read. So although the content is generally the same as the desktop version, the layout will adjust to suit the screen size*.
Once up and running, you will have full control of your site so you can make changes yourself when needed. Better still, you don’t need a degree in IT to make simple changes to your content. Of course, BluePixie can also do this for you if required.
If you are new to the internet – here are a few other things you will also need to get a website up and running:
This is simply the www.yourbusiness.com.au web address. A domain is purchased for a period of time – typically 12 – 24mths and will require renewal if you wish to keep it at the end of your term. If required, BluePixie can manage the set-up and ongoing renewals on your behalf.
Domain names are not expensive at all, but please note you can’t just register any .com.au domain name. To register a .com.au domain name, Australian registrants must be:
- an Australian registered company; or
- trading under a registered business name in any Australian State or Territory; or
- an Australian partnership or sole trader;
- a foreign company licensed to trade in Australia; or
- an owner of an Australian Registered Trade Mark; or
- an applicant for an Australian Registered Trade Mark; or
- an association incorporated in any Australian State or Territory; or
- an Australian commercial statutory body.
For your website to be visible on the Internet you need to have a web-hosting service. A web host, or web hosting service provider, is a business that provides the technologies and services needed for the website to be viewed on the Internet. Websites are hosted, or stored, on special computers called servers and your site lives on that server. We have done the research and have selected a partner that is affordable, secure and most importantly – reliable. This is an ongoing cost of less than $10 per month.
