My recommendations for your website
I recommend you use separate providers for your:
- Domain name
- Website hosting
- Website designer
- Website backup service
Should a provider cease trading, you will only need to source one of the above elements to get your website back up and running.
Domain name and website hosting
I recommend you purchase a domain name and hosting yourself and I can offer you guidance about this.
The only pre-requisite for hosting is that your hosting provider offers:
- One click WordPress install
- The technical requirements for WordPress, the web creation software that I use
Most providers do support WordPress and I can offer guidance on this.
A .co.uk domain can be purchased for between £6 and £10 + VAT for two years, depending on the domain registrar you buy from.
Web hosting for a small personal or business website can cost from £30 + VAT per year and prices depend on which hosting provider you buy from and, importantly the quality of the hosting. Again, I can advise you about hosting.
I am based in Streatham and offer WordPress training during and after website build at your South London home, office, or by phone. Training costs £25 per hour.
I have a current enhanced DBS Certificate covering regulated activity with adults and children.
My requirements for creating your website
All I ask is that you supply me with a logo (in electronic format, according to my specifications), all website copy and good quality images.
Search engine optimisation (SEO)
I have over 17 years of SEO experience and will, as part of your website build, search engine optimise your website so that you have the best opportunity of being found on the internet, ahead of your competitors.
After completion of your website
Once I have completed your website, you can decide if you would like me to continue updating your website at my hourly rate, which is £25.00.
Who will own the website I create for you?
You will own the website – it will be your copyright.
Would someone else be able to take over my website?
Absolutely. I do not believe that you should be tied to one designer.
About your WordPress and Hosting login details
Once I have completed your website I will produce a Credentials Document that you will be able to download from a secure server. This document will contain the login parameters to every aspect of your website and hosting. The document will enable you or another designer quickly gain access to all elements of your website.
Website backup service
Most web hosts will automatically backup your website every 24 hours or once a week. However, if your web host disappears and you do not have a separate off-site backup available, you may be unable to restore your site.
For off-site website backups on this website and on Wimbledon Visitor, I use Jetpack / VaultPress.*
This is a paid-for service and costs from $3.50 per month. The $3.50 plan is suitable for the majority of small websites and is the plan you will need to have so that I (or you) can restore your website if necessary. *Disclosure: I now am an affiliate of Jetpack/Vaultpress. This means that I may receive commission if you purchase a plan after clicking the above link.
Vaultpress has a “one click” browser based restore facility, making it the easiest backup and restore service available.

Advice is free if you are looking for a website designer.
