Web design - a brief introduction

"The intent of web design is to create a web site that presents content (including interactive features or interfaces) to the end user in the form of web pages. To create a successful website, however, so much more needs to be taken into consideration..."

There are two main types of website widely used by businesses on the Internet today. Whether you are intending to utilise a flat, or static, website (generally used as a type of online 'brochure' or advert for your business) or an interactive e-commerce site, the overall look and feel will play an important role in its usability.

It is important that visitors to the site can quickly and easily access the required information. The web design should present the content in an intuitive manner, making effective use of colour, layout and site organisation. A cluttered and confusing website may frustrate a potential customer and force them to take their business to a competitor!

'Brochure' websites

'Brochure' websites are used by a business to present themselves on the Internet to provide any potential customers with more information about them in a favourable way. These websites can be any number of pages, depending on how much information the business wishes to display. Most brochure websites feature a home page and a contact page in order to ensure that any potential customers can quickly and easily see how to contact the business, and then any number of additional pages depending on the specific requirements of the business.

We offer a wide variety of design packages for set prices, or custom designed websites to meet specific requirements.


"Electronic commerce, commonly known as e-commerce or eCommerce, consists of the buying and selling of products or services over electronic systems such as the Internet...the amount of trade conducted electronically has grown extraordinarily since the spread of the Internet."

E-Commerce websites are for those who are interested in selling things on the Internet, they need to be designed and implemented by professional web designers and developers. However, once the website - or web shop - is up and running they can be used by anybody, as they have a very easy-to-use interface familiar to anybody with a basic grasp of modern computers and operating systems.

Businesses can sell almost everything and anything on an e-commerce website, using it as a complete shopping system or just as a shop window. Often businesses wish to have the best of both worlds and so have both a brochure and an e-commerce solution created for them as a complete package. The advantage of this is that a customers can read more information about the business before they are presented with the shop interface, this allows a business to present themselves to the customer in a more friendly and accessible fashion.

domain names

We believe that we offer the best value on domain names. Buy any domain name from us and it will cost you only £10.

Our business philosophy is simple - there are lots of businesses that will sell you domain names but we make it simple, with the minimum of fuss and for the lowest prices. We don't believe in tricking customers and have nothing to hide. The price you see on our home page is the price you pay (how many times have you seen 'domain names for 2p' only to find by the time you've added NIC fees, extra costs and VAT you're paying £15?)

search engine optimisation (SEO)

"The person you most want to find your website is the person who is searching for you!"

Search Engine Optimisation encompasses a wide variety of tasks that improve a website's 'presence' on search engines. Maybe you've heard a few SEO catchphrases - meta tags, keyword density, or page rank - but you don't know exactly how to tie them all together to produce a website that appears at the top of the search engines for a specific search term.

Often referred to as "SEO", search engine optimisation is the process of arranging or displaying the content of a website in such a way so that search engines pick up on certain keywords, phrases and other content in order to display your website as a result for the appropriate search terms.

At simplewebhosting we take into account many SEO factors when designing websites for our customers, however, for businesses in highly competitive areas we recommend the HyperSubmit service.

HyperSubmit search engine submission services make sure your business is one of the websites your potential customers can find. HyperSubmit will optimise and submit your website to hundreds of search engines and directories worldwide to help you unleash the full potential of your online business.
