What Types of Websites Do We Offer?

Business

Being one of the most popular and versatile types of websites out there, a business website can take many forms. Business websites enable you to sell a certain service or product. They often include sections for displaying and describing what you are selling.

Blogs

Blogs are a type of website that enable you to write long-form content about virtually anything. They consist mainly of articles and images, typically surrounding a specific topic. Some of the most popular types of blogs include travel blogs and food blogs.

eCommerce

Similar to the business websites mentioned above, eCommerce websites, or online stores, allow you to sell products online. These sites typically include product sections which enable you to display your products, as well as shopping cart and checkout features.

Portfolios

Oftentimes, people make use of websites in order to display their own work or skills. Portfolios are the perfect type of website to create in order to do just that. They often contain a gallery which displays your work and text which enables you to explain your expertise and provide details about your work.

Event

As more and more of the world has moved into an online space, event websites have become extremely popular. These sites allow you to display detailed information about your event, include comprehensive schedules, transportation suggestions, maps and more.

Personal

Creating a personal website is a simple way to boost your web presence. This type of website is essentially a site surrounding and representing a given person. Many people utilize personal websites to display who they are and what they have accomplished. In many ways it is similar to a portfolio with fewer visual elements making it the perfect format for author websites and actor websites, among others.

Non-Profit

Resembling business websites, these websites often include a description of the nonprofit organization, details about the work they do, a gallery of past events and a place to donate.

Informational

Informational websites are a type of website that encompasses many different things. Generally speaking, they are used as platforms whose main purpose is to convey information and act as a resource. Informational websites are not intended as a source of income, rather are meant to simply be informative.

Website Maintenance

Website maintenance is the practice of monitoring your website’s overall health and performance. Keeping a website up-to-date is crucial to ensuring it’s working at full capacity, engaging and retaining site visitors.

Here are some of the monthly maintenance services we perform:

  • Keeping frameworks if used up to date
  • Making sure there are no malicious actions being done on the site
  • Plugin updates
  • Backups of the most recent version of the site
  • Monitoring of plugins in case they become inactive from the developer
  • Maintenance of small items across the site
  • Fixing any 404’s

Website Security

Web security is also known as “Cybersecurity”. It basically means protecting a website or web application by detecting, preventing and responding to cyber threats.

Websites and web applications are just as prone to security breaches as physical homes, stores, and government locations. Unfortunately, cybercrime happens every day, and great web security measures are needed to protect websites and web applications from becoming compromised.

Website Hosting

A website and all of it’s data, pictures, plugins, forms, programs, etc are hosted (stored) on servers. These servers connect to the internet which in turn allows anyone in the world with internet access to be able to view and interact with your website.

Domain Names

A domain name is your website name (eg. whatcomwebdesign.com). A domain name is the address where Internet users can access your website.  You must register the domain name so it is associated with you and your website. We can tell you what names are available and register the name for you.

Search Engine optimization (SEO)

SEO stands for “search engine optimization.” In simple terms, it means the process of improving your site to increase its visibility when people search for products or

services related to your business in Google, Bing, and other search engines. The better visibility your pages have in search results, the more likely you are to garner attention and attract prospective and existing customers to your business.

Strategy and Planning

A website strategy is a plan of action that directs the content, layout and funnel on your business website. It considers your business objectives and then outlines the ways your website can align with those plans to actively help you reach your goals.

Device Responsive Websites

Responsive Web Design is about using computer language to automatically resize, hide, shrink, or enlarge, a website, to make it look good on all devices (desktops, tablets, and phones).
