To help you understand what’s available to you, we have compiled this selection of our bestselling features. If your website needs a function that isn’t listed here, please get in touch with us, let us know what you need, and we’ll help you find the best solution.
An animated slider is used to display images and text on the homepage of your website. It is attention-grabbing and gives you the opportunity to very quickly show visitors what your business is all about.
A slider can be your virtual shop window, an instant portfolio, a place to advertise upcoming events or sales, or any other use you can think of.
As you will see in our menu at the top of the page, a submenu appears when you move your mouse over Web Design or Portfolio. If you have a lot of pages, adding a dropdown to your navigation menu allows you to make more pages accessable in fewer mouseclicks, and helps your visitors to navigate the website faster to find what they need.
More web users than ever before are accessing the internet via a mobile phone, tablet, or other device with a narrow display. Websites need to look good and work well regardless whether you are using a 24-inch monitor or a handheld mobile phone. Mobile Responsive design rearranges and resizes elements of the page so it looks good and works well no matter what size of screen you are using.
SEO, or Search Engine Optimisation, is the process of making your website rank higher in search engines like Google, Bing or Yahoo! With our SEO feature, we provide advice and tools to help you improve your ranking and make it easier for people to find your business online. Take a look at our SEO Checklist for an idea of what this involves.
On your Contact page, adding a form allows customers to enter their details and send you a message directly through the website. This can be as simple as name, email address and message, or as complex as you need including radio buttons, dropdown boxes, checklists and more.
Newsletter Signup Form
This is a form that allows visitors to add their email address to your mailing list. This is great if you plan on sending customers vouchers, competitions or money-off incentives by email, or if you want to let your customers know about new products, sales, classes, upcoming conferences, etc.
If you use (or want to start using) Facebook or Twitter, your website can integrate with your business’s social media accounts and display recent posts or Tweets, post directly to Facebook/Twitter, or display a “Like” button for visitors to click.
The first year of web hosting is included for free when you purchase a website from us.
The first year of email hosting is also included for free, with unlimited POP accounts @ your domain name allowing you and your employees to send and receive emails through your PC’s email client (Outlook, Thunderbird, etc.) and mobile devices.
Similar to what you see on the right hand side of this page (or at the foot of the page if you are viewing this on your mobile), a Callback Form allows customers to enter their name and phone number, which is sent to your preferred email address so you can return their call at your convenience. This is particularly useful if you are often busy and unable to take calls directly.
Selling products online instantly widens your customer base to include anyone with an internet connection, regardless of where they are in the world. Whether you want to limit your sales to the local area or sell internationally, the options are open.
Alternatively, you can use the ecommerce system to create a virtual catalogue, where you can add photos, descriptions and product codes in a searchable database, but without actually selling online.
If you would like to help your visitors or staff keep track of upcoming events, our event calendar feature will allow you to do this. It is easy to add new events including details such as time, date, location, event details, and more, and calendar widgets allow you to display upcoming events on any page of your website.
