Accessible web design practices to create ADA compliant websites –
Websites should be available to the largest audience
Our Boston web design and website accessibility consultants specialize in creating ADA compliant websites using World Wide Web Consortium Web Content Accessibility Guidelines – W3C WCAG 2.0 Level AA requirements.
Accessibility of a website is an ongoing process that needs continuous attention. We strive to maintain and increase the availability of our customer’s websites by adhering to the available standards and guidelines. Accessibility means that everyone who visits your site will have a pleasant experience regardless of their physical capabilities. Our accessible website design and website accessibility consulting services include assessment, remediation, sustainability, and training. We bring organizations into compliance with federal regulations and conform to WCAG 2.0 level AA success criteria for website accessibility.
Responsive Web Design – Websites that look and work great on all devices
More than 50% of all website traffic will view your site from a device other than a standard PC, and this trend is growing fast. We approach every web design project by thinking about your customers; who they are and how they will find and use your website. We want your customers to have the best possible experience whether they are on a phone, tablet or a PC. Google is committed to a mobile-friendly internet and provides free mobile website optimization tools for your site. Google also considers mobile compatibility as a major ranking factor in search results. Your customer deserves the best, and so do you. For this reason, our design team focuses on Responsive Web Design and Mobile Device Optimization.
Content Management Systems – From Drupal to WordPress, we’ve got you covered
If affordability is an important factor, we recommend using an open source CMS like WordPress or Drupal. An open source platform allows for low-cost maintenance, front-end compliance, and accessibility. We work with a variety of open source content management tools including WordPress, Drupal, ExpressionEngine, Magento, Joomla, WooCommerce, DotNetNuke, and nopCommerce.
Also, our team can create and work with custom content management systems and solutions designed to suit your business needs. A custom solution cost more, but it provides improved security and a competitive advantage over open source software.
Website Security – Our Boston web design security consultants keep your site safe
We don’t take security lightly! Every website is a target for sophisticated hackers. In the early stages of the Internet, security was only for sites that needed to store sensitive credit card data or personal information. This belief is no longer true because hackers can now take control over a site and use it as a tool for malware distribution, denial of service attacks or just wreaking havoc over an innocent victim’s reputation.
SSL Encryption – It’s not just for e-commerce websites!
Securing your site with an SSL certificate is now critical for small and large businesses alike. We assist with the procurement, evaluation, and installation of SSL certificates for your website. Our service includes assisting with identifying common mistakes including mixed content issues that can cause browser errors that can make your site appear untrusted. In fact, Google is pushing everyone to create a secure Internet by displaying security warnings in its popular Chrome Browser. As a result, we are firmly recommending SSL Certificates to all our customers.
Ongoing Security Updates and Managed Hosting – Monthly updates and security patches are critical to optimize your website and prevent hacking
Per Hosting facts, in 2016 an estimated 37,000 websites are hacked every day. This trend is due to widespread adoption of open source solutions like WordPress which powered 25.4% of all websites in 2016. It is possible to maintain a secure site if you are using an Open Source solution, but this requires ongoing maintenance and upgrades. Be selective on installing third-party plugins and extensions on your website as they are typically the #1 cause of vulnerabilities and a hacked site. Boston Web Designers provides ongoing security consulting and maintenance as needed to maintain a secure website.
Website Optimization – Speed and Performance Matters
If you have a slow site, it will negatively impact your site. This result includes it’s PageRank, traffic, page views, conversions, sales and brand image. In 2010 Google removed all doubt when it announced that Page Speed matters as a significant ranking factor. Google then created PageSpeed Insights and other tools to help website developers optimize websites for speed and performance. Therefore we work with you to make speed and performance a priority for your site because we know it will impact your bottom line.
