Web development company servicing Victoria, Duncan, Nanaimo, Ladysmith and Vancouver Island

We design our sites in Wordpress using the most popular design themes, this gives us access to the best design templates. The templates are the result of thousands of hours of development & testing. We can customize these templates to match your look and branding.

All of our sites are designed to look great on all devices. With the increase in smart phone useage - mobile access is now a critical part of the design requirements. Google now gives preference in the search results to mobile friendly sites.

We are moving our new clients onto the Wordpress.com platform. The hosting is in your name - you control the website and there are no middlemen. You grant access to web developers, web marketers, staff and SEO consultants. You can update the site yourself or outsource it to anyone familiar with Wordpress (the most popuar web design platform)

This means that the connection between your visitor and the website is secure. Google is pushing us in this direction, Google Chrome will now give warning to visitors on sites without a secure connection. It is time to protect your visitors and your site with an SSL certificate and HTTPS.

While most web designers also look after hosting the website - we have decided to leave it to the hosting professionals at wordpress.com. They provide a managed hosting environment that is impossible for a small web developer to compete with. They provide secure pages (ssl), backups and software updates. Plus they offer 24 hour support services.

We provide all the modern social sharing and following buttons. All sites are search engine optimized. We also setup your website in Google My Business, Search Console and Analytics to ensure that you are getting the best search results.

Wordpress has hundreds of plugins and themes - making it the easy to add new functionality. Examples we have implemented include an ecommerce cart, discussion forum, knowledgebase, file library and the ability to handle multiple languages. You can even switch out your theme for a completely new look.

We have 20 years experience and over 100 web sites in our portfolio. We service everything from large corporations to small local business. We are your web partner for all matters related to the internet.

We have clients in Victoria, Nanaimo, Duncan, Vancouver Island and across Canada.
