At Simply Computing we make websites.
Simple.

 


Your website is often the first port of call for potential customers, so it’s important to make a great first impression. Visitors will judge you by the quality of your site, so you don’t want them to find something that loads slowly with badly written text, fuzzy photographs or dead links. And of course it needs to look good on any number of different sized devices, from mobile phones to tablets to the largest desktop monitors.

Talk to us

You may have already realised that making a website is no longer a straight-forward job. The scope of knowledge and skills required has become daunting. As well as registering a domain name and arranging hosting, there are matters of responsive design, coding, writing, photography, analytics, security, maintenance, ecommerce, uptime monitoring and many other considerations to take into account.

See some examples


That's where we come in...

We can produce an attractive and responsive site according to your design brief, write or edit the text as required, organise and optimise your images, and then make sure it all loads super fast. We will also train you in maintaining your site into the future.

Need a shop? We know about setting up and maintaining e-commerce sites and can advise you on all aspects of selling online, including the best payment gateways to use. And our analytics will give you valuable feedback to help increase your sales.

When you choose one of our managed hosting plans, we’ll continue to look after you and help with every aspect of your website for as long as you need us. We keep programs patched and up-to-date, backup your site daily and manage your domain names.

We also provide you with the tools you need to keep everything fresh on the content side. You will be able to easily edit your website content to provide the latest information to your users at any time of the day or night… or we can do that for you too, if you prefer.


Some examples...

...

Robbie Mann

A site built using ClassicPress and Classic Commerce to feature early jazz pianist, Robbie Mann and handle his CD sales. Robbie wanted a keybord-themed menu to slide in from the side of the page.

...

Darragh Wines

A retail outlet for a local wine maker, this site was built in ClassicPress using the Classic Commerce extension to provide a shopping cart facility. We implemented the site design provided by their graphic designer.

...

Woolshed Cabins

A site built using ClassicPress to promote holiday cabin accommodation in the Blue Mountains. There are many pages with local information, a photo gallery and an embedded Google calendar to show available booking dates.

...

Tenorz Downunder

A clear and minimal site made with just html, css and javascript for a group of Australian tenors. We used the design specifications given to us by the graphic designer and the client came up with the idea of the random floating watermarks on the home page.

...

Grant Violins

A site for one of the best violin shops in Australia, including an extensive ecommerce store, designed using Classic Commerce.

A construction company site in Papua New Guinea to showcase some examples of their work.


Technical Stuff (you can safely ignore all this)

  • We host websites and register domain names through Synergy Wholesale.
  • We now prefer to use ClassicPress rather than WordPress, as it provides a much simpler user interface.
  • We have been active contributors to the development of Classic Commerce; a lighter, independent fork of WooCoommerce.
  • We use Matomo to provide you with analytics. You can get an emailed monthly summary, or log in to your dashboard to see every statistic you could ever possibly want.
  • Your emails will be sent through Mailgun to provide you with a very reliable and trackable mail delivery. We monitor this daily and will notify you of any problems.
  • We take daily backups that are stored off-site. On the first of the month we move a full backup into long term storage with BackBlaze. Our hosting service also provides hourly on-site backups.
  • Site uptime is monitored with Uptime Robot. Your site is checked every 5 minutes and we get an email notification and start investigating as soon as it goes down.
