Website Design & Development
Lanetech specialises in the design and development of attractive and professional websites at competitive prices. Based in the city of Inverness in the Scottish Highlands, Lanetech currently has over 100 clients across the public, private and third sectors, both in the UK and overseas. As a small business, we pride ourselves on providing a personal service with excellent after sales support.
Lanetech creates both static and content managed websites. Static websites are typically more suitable and cost-effective for businesses requiring only occasional and minor updates; the client simply emails us the changes that they would like us to make. A content management system (CMS) is more suitable for businesses that want to manage and update the content of their website themselves.
Our CMS of choice is WordPress. WordPress is a free, mature and stable content management system that is optimised for search engine optimisation (SEO). Every WordPress website requires a ‘theme’ to be present—themes determine the appearance (styling) and functionality of the website. We would work with you to choose a suitable theme from the literally thousands that are available. We always advise a theme with a responsive design, as these make your web pages look good on all devices (desktops, tablets, and phones). Alternatively, we can create websites using other established CMS systems, such as Joomla, which are also highly customisable.
Web Standards and Features
All our websites are created to Web standards and search engine optimisation (SEO) best practices, to ensure that all browsers will display your website properly, and to make it easier for people with disabilities to use your website and for search engines to access and index your web pages. We will ensure that your website complies with the new EU Cookie Law.
Lanetech can integrate a range of popular features and functionality such as Google services (e.g., Analytics, Maps, Translate), MailChimp’s newsletter, social media widgets (e.g. Facebook, Google+ and Twitter buttons), photo galleries, and basic eCommerce solutions. We can also manage the web hosting and domain name registration and renewal for you.
