A web design template is a pre-designed web page or set of web pages with a particular layout and set of display features.
The beauty of using a web design template is that we can ‘plug in’ the content and imagery that is unique to your business without having to build the site from scratch. This means that the finished product will have the look and feel of a bespoke website but for a much more affordable price.
Not at all. By using your content and images, as well as drawing on all the unique aspects of your brand personality, we will make sure that your website is exciting and original. We have a range of custom blocks that we can use to build complex layouts for your web pages and make them look unique.
WordPress is the most popular content management system in the world, and it’s great for small businesses. It’s SEO friendly, easy to use and very customisable with plug-ins for all your business requirements. It’s also highly scalable, which means that as your business grows, so can your website, without having to transfer it to a different platform.
Our Sole Trader package starts at just £50 a month, with a £250 sign-up fee.

A domain, also referred to as a domain name, is simply your main website address – ours is cariadwebdesign.com. Domain names are unique and must be purchased from a domain registrar.
Web hosting is essential for any website, and it is important to choose your hosting wisely. There are many types of hosting such as shared hosting, managed hosting and VPS hosting to name a few. When you host your website on one of our servers, we remove the hassle. Our development team will make sure everything is running smoothly, quickly and securely so your site can flourish online.
Web hosting is a service that allows you to put a web page or website onto the internet. Web hosting can be made up of one or many servers that store websites and deliver them to your browser when you search for a URL or click a hyperlink.
The beauty of buying a template website is that it can be built very quickly. Once we have all the content and images from you and a good understanding of your business objectives, we can have your new website up and running in under two weeks!
Once you have chosen a package, we will arrange an online meeting with you to learn more about your company, business objectives and website requirements. Once we know what sort of layout and style you would like and you have sent us your website copy and images, we will start to build your website and implement all the functionality you’ve ordered. We will then run a final review and test the site on all browsers and devices, before setting up your website hosting and making the site live on your chosen domain.
