Hi there, I'm Dan - freelance web designer and developer with years of experience and many happy clients. I help businesses, individuals and other web agencies improve: online presences, efficiency, cost-effectiveness and customer acquisition & retention by building fast, secure, SEO-friendly and user-friendly client-facing and office-facing websites and systems. I not only build, but provide managed hosting, updates, maintenance, training and consultation. My day-to-day stack is PHP/MySQL/HTML/CSS (SASS)/JS (inc jQuery and Vue), though increasingly working with JS/TS on the server side too, and I work with WordPress & Laravel a lot.What I Do Past Work Get in touch
Whether you need a new website designed or an existing website revamped or added to, I will deliver a well thought out design based around UI/UX considerations and not just want you or I feel looks good. Let me help you maximise conversions whilst displaying something beautiful. Check out some of my past projects for a taste.
I am an experienced WordPress & Woocommerce developer. I utilise existing plugins where appropriate and am highly skilled in custom theme and plugin development, having had built WP sites for a wide range of purposes and industries. I make modifications to existing WP sites, build them from scratch, integrate with APIs, provide managed hosting, security, maintenance & support and training.
Showcase your products or services and sell them on your own online store. Totally manage your store yourself, through the content managemnt system. I can build your online store, membership or subscription-based website and just about anything else ecommerce related. I am well versed in ecommerce design as well as various third-party services such as payment gateways and shipping integrations.
Starting at just £10 per month, my managed hosting services can be tailored to meet each clients’ needs without including unnecessary features. I provide shared hosting as well as VPS and bare metal/dedicated hosting. I utilise modern cloud providers such as AWS, Google Cloud and Digital Ocean. We’ll discuss your requirements and what features you may need, such as backups, malware scanning, a web application firewall, a CDN and more, including more highly-available setups. My managed hosting services can be combined with maintenance, support and updates into one monthly price.
I provide website maintenance and support on a monthly-priced basis and ad-hoc. We’ll discuss your requirements and I’ll provide a monthly price. Maintenance can include: software updates (such as WordPress core, themes and plugins), malware scanning and removal, actively monitoring and fixing code errors, keeping up to date with changes in integrated third-party APIs, periodical speed optimisation and more. Maintenance & Support can be combined with my managed hosting and security services into one monthly price.
Is your website infected with malware or has otherwise been hacked? Act now to minimise financial, reputation and search engine ranking damage. I’ll clean your website of any infections and harden your website against future attacks. If you’re unsure if your website has been hacked – I’ll check it out first. Depending on the website, I can have it cleaned and hardened in as little as 1-3 hours, from just £60. I can also provide on-going protection as part of my Maintenance and Managed Hosting services for a fixed monthly price.
Website speed is extremely important for customer acquisition and retention, and is an important factor in SEO. Amazon once said that a 10th of a second extra load time resulted in a 1% drop in sales! Whether your website is ecommerce or not, conversions are affected by the speed of your website. I’ll improve the speed of your website by addressing the many performance related aspects both on the front end and server side. I can also provide training on some things you can do yourself to help performance.
Not only do I know my stuff in terms of backend and frontend development technologies, but also (Linux) server management; things that usually only DevOps people would know anything about; SEO; third-party SaaS's; and more.
Throughout our relationship I strive to provide a great service, not just in the final deliverable but throughout. I am both the tech guy and the customer service guy so you are always talking directly to the guy who's doing your job.
I am able to provide turnaround times quicker than many others, partyly due to the fact there'll be no middle man/account manager between you and I. I'm especially happy to provide quicker turn arounds for emergencies.
No hidden fees, no sneeky copyright assignment clauses. I give clear prices and deliver exactly what was asked for and given in writing.
