Since we merged the London Cattery Directory into the British Cattery Directory, we no longer have any need for the LondonCatteries domain name, and we are willing to sell it. In the meantime, we added these pages to keep the domain 'alive' in Google's eyes, which will help whoever buys it, and at the same time to promote our own services. In case you hadn't guessed from the page title, we design websites, so this seems a good place to tell you about what we offer clients!
We design WordPress and HTML websites. Both types look the same to visitors, but they're different under the skin and which type of website suits you best depends on what you want your website to do. An HTML website is also often called a 'brochure' website. Basically, each page is like a page in a magazine, or a brochure. It has all the words and pictures that the site needs, but it isn't interactive.
As an example, this website is an HTML website. HTML websites are stable, reliable, don't need much maintenance and are not attractive targets for hackers. We love them. Although website designers love to sell sites based on WordPress, the simple truth is that an HTML website can often be the best choice, even if they have certain limitations.
We also design WordPress websites. WordPress is a program that runs your website for you. It has an admin area for site owners that makes it very easy for you to create new pages and edit existing pages. If you want a website that is interactive and includes things like a blog, an ordering system, or an online payment system, WordPress is brilliant and probably the best solution on the market.
Sites built with WordPress can be more expensive to run, depending on what additional software you need to do various things. The WordPress program needs memory to operate quickly, and so needs better quality hosting to make it run properly. WordPress sites are also the target of many hackers, and need constant maintenance to keep them secure. However, for something complex like our Cattery Directory, they're more or less essential. They do things HTML sites just cannot do.
You don't need to know anything about websites. If you want a website for your business, you just need to tell us what you want your site to do, and what you want visitors to do. Once we know what you want, we can tell you what type of site you need!
