Responsive Web Design

Responsive Web Design

"This is an approach to web design in which a site is crafted to provide an optimal viewing experience—easy reading and navigation with a minimum of resizing, panning, and scrolling—across a wide range of devices (from desktop computer monitors to mobile phones)."

we design websites which are... creative, fast, cost-effective, flexible, practical, maintainable, accessible, and reliable. Since 1997, we have made web design as painless a process for many satisfied clients .

Built using HTML, CSS3, Javascript & jQuery. The CSS3 enables the site to have a more rounded look in some of the newer browsers, with shadow effects also added. Accordians, pop-ups and other items were added to make the site more informative and user friendly.

Wimpy

wimpyArisia was approached by this well known brand to change their main website from a 'Flash' version.

An Admin site was also constructed to enable them to update most areas of the website which is also attached to a Microsoft SQL Server database.

What is Website Hosting

Although they range from simple online brochures to highly advanced trading environments, web sites are increasingly the spaces in which businesses live and operate. However it has been put together, your completed web site needs to be hosted on a web server for the world to see it.

If you have a permanent Internet connection, such as ADSL, you might wonder why you shouldn't just turn your home computer into a web server and host it yourself. This is not a good idea, for numerous reasons:

hosting
  • turning your computer into a web server requires technical knowledge.
  • using your computer and reliably hosting a web site on it at the same time is unlikely to be possible.
  • your Internet connection will easily become saturated, possibly incurring the displeasure of your Internet Service Provider
  • if your power supply, PC or ADSL connection fail, your web site is no longer available.

The smart approach is to use Arisia to host your web site on one of its own web servers. As experienced professionals, we can manage all stages of the process, setting up web space to store your web pages, mapping domains, managing bandwidth and ensuring reliable access to your site at all times. Once your web site is uploaded, it's live on the Internet for all to see, leaving you to concentrate on running your business.

With large web sites, sites that have a high number of visitors or involve database components or special security requirements, or where you will be conducting e-commerce transactions online, you may need to have the web site hosted on its own dedicated server. In these instances, we can set up the server solution of your choice.
