What our clients say about us ...
We make it as easy as possible to own a website that works
As a business owner, do you lack the time or expertise to manage your own website? We understand that you have much more important things to do in your business.
"Self-edit" websites can take up a lot of your valuable time and can (if not done properly) open you up to increased security risks.
We offer an affordable service to free up your time to do what you do best and give you peace of mind.
So relax and let Silver Websites take care of your website.
Our hosting/maintenance packages include as standard :
✔ Updates - keeping your website software (plugins etc.) working properly
✔ Backups - taking regular copies of your website, for extra piece of mind
✔ Security - ongoing security checks/updates.
Monthly Retainer packages
We also offer monthly website retainer packages to keep your website fresh.
We can help you create blogs and keep your site optimised for Search Engines. We can provide you with freelance web design and support to keep your website looking professional.
Web development and design for small businesses & charities. Affordable, professional and bespoke designs.
Monthly retainer packages to help clients grow their websites (from as little as an hour each month).
For organisations who need an online presence but don’t need more than one page, we offer one-page website solutions.
We provide web hosting which includes regular backups, software upgrades and other maintenance checks.
If you have an existing WordPress website and you would like it updating/re-vamping, we offer freelance website development.
