Web Design FAQ's

Is Site Loading Speed Important?

Google now ranks websites on the speed it loads on a mobile. This means that you must have fast hosting and a well designed site. These are the things that we work hard to provide.
 
If you already have a website you can test its speed on gmetrix though you will need a free sign up to test from Europe, but it will give you a good insight into how your site is performing.
 
As you can see from the image opposite our site here loads in less than a second and gets excellent scores.

What is a Mobile Responsive Design?

Whether you are looking for a contemporary or modern look it is important that it performs like a modern website. For this to happen it must load quickly and also look great on mobile devices.
Over 50% of website are now viewed on mobile devices, and sometimes with slow connection speeds. We design sites that not only resize and display well on these devices, but also deliver a more simplistic and mobile friendly site that will engage your customers.
If a mobile site takes more than 3 seconds to load, 50% of people tend not to explore any further. These are potentially lost customers.

Can I have my own email addresses?

 

If you have bought a web domain you can make anyemailaddress@yourfomain.co.uk (for example)

The question is how to pick this mail up and send it, and there are a number of different ways.

If you host with us or another host, you should be able to log directly into the hosts email page and view and send email there. This however isn’t always as user friendly as people would like.

 

Gmail is good for collecting and sending mail and you can add as many accounts as you like. The problem here is that you cannot guarantee GDP compliancy unless you sign up to the paid version of gsuite.

Mail can be collected directly on your computer or your phone through the native mail apps or programs if you add the account there and this can work well. One issue with this may be privacy as although your phone may have a password on it, most mail apps do not.

A good solution to this can be to use the outlook app and add the email account in there. This app can be set to unlock with fingerprint id in the settings page and this will help keep your business emails secure.
