Website Design and Development

Custom Websites Designed for Your Needs

We are not talking about yesterday’s websites. AbleSpark moves away from standard website configurations and designs to create something unique to your business or organization. We build YOUR website, with everything you need it to do or be, integrated inside. In over twenty years of website design and development, we’ve learned that not every website needs to be complicated, but that some websites do.

The key to creating your ideal site is in the collaboration process. Once you hire us at AbleSpark to create your custom website, here’s the process we work through together:

Planning

We will talk about what you want, and the capabilities you need in your website. If you’re not sure, we’ll figure that out based on a conversation about your business needs and through mutual agreement. At this point, early on, AbleSpark will lay out clear expectations for us, and you… defining what milestones will guide the process. You will have an understanding of how things will progress.

Design

During the design process, we will decide what emotions we want to evoke when people first click on your website. This will determine if they will stay on the site and have a look around, or be moved to do business with you right away. AbleSpark will ensure that your website clearly reflects the image you want to project. Check out some of our PROJECTS and notice the different feelings you get as you visit each page. Magic, right?

Functional Requirements

What is the goal of your website? Whether you want to sell merchandise online, be an informational resource to your customers, or use it as a business development tool to attract prospective customers, AbleSpark can develop a website that has all the functionality needed. We have plenty of experience in developing e-commerce sites. Our websites are optimized to display properly on mobile devices (mobile-first indexing), and we can build ADA compliant websites, if requested, at an additional cost.

Technical Requirements

Here’s the fancy part. We make sure that all the moving parts, bells, and whistles are all working together and functioning to show your business or organization in the best light. We are able to seamlessly install, manage, and monitor all the technology components your website needs!

Development

These days, security is a big deal, as risks to your online presence are real. That’s why we take great care to ensure that your website is responsive and secure, by complying with or exceeding current guidelines. These actions are necessary to help you remain safe and competitive.

Deployment

Finally, when it’s “Go Time!” AbleSpark will be as excited as you are when we prepare to launch your website on the internet. We’ll standby to ensure it’s a smooth transition and that you’re satisfied with the final product.

Website Management, Hosting, and Security

You’ve got your website, and it’s working great, and it’s back to business for you, right? Most people don’t realize that it does take some ongoing work to maintain a website once it’s finished and live on the internet. You may not have the extra time to maintain it, or you might not know what is involved in keeping it up to date, secure, and running smoothly.

At AbleSpark, we can provide both managed and unmanaged solutions for websites and web applications. We’ve structured our services to include all levels of maintenance for your site, depending on what you need. Here are some of the things that you’ll need for your new website.

Website Hosting

Once your website is finished, it has to “live” somewhere on the internet. AbleSpark offers hosting for your website on our secure servers. Whether or not we design your site, we can provide monthly service packages to fit your needs.

Website Backups

Backing up your website regularly to a cloud-based server is essential and prevents you from losing vital information or files. AbleSpark provides reliable safeguards against hackers, software incompatibilities, human error, and other threats, ensuring that your technology can be quickly and easily restored if the worst happens.

Security Scans

Every day, we hear about hackers and the damage they do. We run regular Security Scans on your website to monitor for signs of malware distribution, spam, phishing tactics, and other security threats. AbleSpark protects your customer’s information, and your business, from scams, damaged reputations, and financial loss.

Uptime Monitoring

The internet never sleeps, so your website is on display to the world 24/7. You never know when a potential customer will land on your website, and the last thing you want is for it to be offline or otherwise inoperable. Luckily, AbleSpark is also “on” 24/7, monitoring our servers so that they never go down and issues are dealt with immediately. When your customers come to call on your website, it will be there ready to work for you.

Firewall

Firewalls act as a sentry… they add an extra layer of protection to your website to stop threats before they materialize by monitoring all web traffic and searching for potential threats from several sources… DDS attacks, software vulnerability exploitations, OWASP Top 10, access control attacks, brute force attempts, and more. But the good news is, you don’t have to know what these threats are or how to protect against them. Your website will run safely as attackers are thwarted when AbleSpark manages and monitors your firewall.

WordPress Updates

One of the best ways to keep your WordPress website free from hackers is to keep its software, themes, and plug-ins up to date. AbleSpark’s Managed Hosting Plans include regular and automatic updates to your website’s software as new versions are released. Keeping everything up to date helps your website run without any surprises.

Content Updates

Keeping your content up to date and refreshing it from time to time is one of the best ways to keep your clients and Google informed about your business. Whether it’s a new article for your blog, a change in services, or a new staff member, AbleSpark can make sure that these updates are completed promptly, without the worry of making sure it is done right. We check to see that it works well with your overall theme and search engine optimization strategy.
