We can help you register a domain name via a third party provider or help you point/direct your domain name to the new website.
The package includes eight hours of one-to-one (Zoom/Teams etc) planning/support!
- Content Consultation
We don't just leave you to figure out content and layouts. Our service includes personalised website content consultation to improve and optimise your material. We analyse new or existing content, understand your audience, and provide guidance to enhance quality and relevance. Our goal is to help you create engaging online content that effectively communicates your message and aligns with your website's objectives.
- SSL (https)
Our websites are always equipped with HTTPS for enhanced security. This protocol establishes a secure communication channel between your web browser and the website's server. The encryption it employs not only protects your data during transit but also contributes to improved SEO. Identifying a secure website is simple – just look for "https://" at the beginning of the URL and a padlock icon in your browser's address bar.
- Content Blocks
Novus provides a range of default 'content blocks' and additional options are available upon request. Easily create content blocks through the CMS menu and arrange them on your page with a simple drag-and-drop interface.
Our websites are always designed to be responsive, displaying and functioning flawlessly across a variety of web browsing software. Utilising the latest web development techniques, our approach ensures an optimal viewing experience on a diverse range of devices
- Responsive Navigation
Responsive website navigation has several advantages, making it user-friendly on different devices. It adjusts smoothly to various screen sizes, ensuring a consistent experience on desktops, tablets, and smartphones.
- Webp images
Your website jpg images will be dynamically served as WebP. WebP, developed by Google, is a modern image format with key advantages over JPEG and PNG. It ensures smaller file sizes for faster website loading, especially on mobile devices. WebP is widely supported by major browsers.
- Multiple Pages
You have the freedom to create an unlimited number of pages. Easily manage your content with the ability to move, delete, rename, activate, or deactivate pages with just a click. Furthermore, you can organise your pages via the drag-and-drop interface to arrange them as you see fit
Novus is built using UIkit, an open-source, fully accessible front-end framework. All its interactive components are inherently accessible right out of the box. Any additional components will also undergo rigorous testing to ensure compliance with accessibility guidelines. We are committed to supporting you in maintaining accessibility, and will offer further guidance and assistance during the CMS training sessions.
- E-commerce upgradable
Novus can be upgraded for e-commerce, enabling you to create and manage a responsive online shop without the burden of extravagant upfront costs or excessive ongoing expenses. To minimise overhead, your shop will utilise PayPal as the preferred payment gateway.
- Google or Web Fonts
Your website's typography will be improved using either Google or Web Fonts. Google Fonts, or Web Fonts in general, offer a diverse and easily accessible library of typefaces, enhancing web design by providing a wide range of aesthetically pleasing and readable font options, ultimately improving the overall user experience.
Complimentary website hosting is offered free for the first 12 months with this start-up package. Please note that this package exclusively covers website hosting and does not include email services. If you require email accounts, we can assist you in finding a third-party hosting provider that also offers email services. Third-party hosting options start from around £60 per year.
