If the idea of a web site is intimidating or confusing, please contact me and let me help you make sense of it all.
My goal is to ensure that you are completely satisfied with your web site.
Based in Prince Albert, Saskatchewan, I manage web sites in various locations through the province including Christopher Lake, Humboldt, Marsden, Prince Albert, Regina, Saskatoon, Vanscoy, and Waskesiu.
Please contact me for more information about how I can help you attain your goals through the design and development of a well-coded, standards-compliant web site.

Here are a few web sites I've designed. Check them out. — Contact the owners to see if they are satisfied with their web site.
Site Set Up — These fees will include the costs for designing and developing your web site. The exact cost will depend on the complexity and size of your web site. Simple sites with four or five pages can start as low as $500.00. For a quote, contact me.
Domain Name Registration — You must pay an annual fee to register your domain name (www.yourdomain.com) which ensures that your domain name cannot be claimed by anyone else. I can assist you in registering your domain name, or register it for you. My annual fee to register your domain is $20 - prices are subject to change.
Web Site Hosting — In order for people to view your site, you need to have your files hosted on a public server. These fees can be assessed monthly, quarterly or yearly. My fees for this service start as low as $7.50/month, depending on the size of your site and types of features it requires.
web hosting through Varial Technologies because they guarantee 99.99% uptime.
Site Maintenance — If you need minor changes made to your site, I can bill you monthly or quarterly, based on an hourly fee. For more extensive changes, I can provide a price quote.
There are some very good reasons why you should insist that your web site uses coding that meets the standards established by the World Wide Web Consortium (W3C). All new sites I develop meet these standards.
Consistency & Stability —Compliant web pages have the best chance of looking the same on all browsers. The standards ensure existing content will look similar in browsers of the future while still producing adequate results on older, legacy browsers.
Accessibility — Compliant coding allows web access to people using special browsers — such as those that read web pages aloud or translate text into Braille — and hand-held browsers with small monitors.
Convertibility — Compliant documents can easily be converted to other formats, such as databases or word-processor documents. Most importantly, this allows for simplified migration to new systems such as tablets, smart phones, TVs and PDAs (hand-held computers).
