Our accessible website design and website accessibility consulting services include assessment, remediation, sustainability and training.

Responsive Web Design
Websites that look and work great on all devices
More than 50% of all website traffic will view your website 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 website. Google also consoiders 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. This 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.
In addition, our team can create and work with custom 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.
Our security consultants keep your website safe
We don’t take security lightly! Every website is a target for sophisticated hackers. It was once believed that security was only for websites that stored sensitive credit card data or personal information. This is no longer true because hackers will take control over a website and use it as a tool for malware distribution, denial of service attacks or just wreaking havoc over an innocent victim’s reputation.
It’s not just for ecommerce websites!
Securing your website with an ssl certificate is now critical for small and large businesses alike. We assist with both the procurement, evaluation and installation of ssl certificates for your website. This includes assisting with identifying common mistakes including mixed content issues that can cause browser errors that can make your website appear untrusted. In fact, Google is pushing everyone to create a secure Internet by making its popular Chrome browser display security warnings. As a result, we strongly recommend SSL Certificates to all our customers.
Ongoing Security Updates and Managed Hosting
Monthly updates and security patches are critical
Per Hosting facts in 2016 an estimated 37,000 websites are hacked every day. This 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 website if you are using an Open Source solution but this requires ongoing maintenance and upgrades. Be selective on installing third party plugins and extensions in your website as they are typically the #1 cause for vulnerabilities and a hacked website. Boston Web Designers provides ongoing security consulting and maintenance as needed to maintain a secure website.
Speed and Performance Matters
A slow website will negatively impact 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 help you make speed and performance a priority
