Strategy and Planning
Ripserve can register domain names. If you are unsure which name to choose, we can offer advice.
We register all sites we design with the major search engines. We design sites with search engines in mind, making your site easier to find on the web.
We can build sites with RSS news feeds, linking your site into the world of blogging. We can also assist with identifying partners to work with in your sector. Contact us for more details.
To begin work we need a design brief, digital artwork & copy. EPS is our preferred graphic format, and we prefer copy as plain text.
On signing our contract one of our staff will come to meet you to discuss the brief, and to collect artwork and copy. A second meeting will be arranged at this point. About 2 days later you will be able to view your site in development online. At the second meeting you will be presented with several ideas; select one, and refine your brief. The third meeting is usually a signing-off meeting, after which your site will go live. (Where meetings are impractical, you'll receive paper proofs.)
Once your site is live we can provide documentation and assistance in keeping it up to date. You should also monitor your site using our log analysis service. Who's visiting your site? What are they looking at? Where are they coming from? How many are there? We can answer these questions in detail. This can guide you in planning future changes.
