Hello, and thank you for visiting Web Matters

With over 20 years of experience in designing and building websites, you can be confident that you will have a smooth delivery of your website.

Ongoing Website Care and Support
Our business relationship doesn't end after the site goes live - I'm here for you for the long haul and ready to help you develop your website as your business changes.
As website technology keeps changing, websites are no longer ‘set and forget’. So just like your desktop software, your website must be kept up to date to keep it working optimally and to keep secure. That's why I offer website care plans to keep everything running smoothly.
Regular updates to your website content will also help you get the most out of your website investment, so I include content updates each month as part of our ongoing website care and support plans.
Each care plan also includes the hosting of your website, daily backups, security scanning, uptime monitoring and the setup and maintenance of a secure certificate (SSL). Don't worry if those things are new to you, or you're not sure what they are - I do, and I know how much of a difference having these things in place will make to your website.
