Planet Graphics have been developing websites since the internet was in it's early days. We build websites entirely in-house to suit your objectives as well as your budget. An effective website can be a simple one-page showcase or a multi-categoried information resource. We create individual sites based on your individual needs - which may be a basic page-driven .html site or a database driven .php scripted site with a content management system. With website design and development, we aim to create a site that performs on all levels - exceeding your expectations on performance, style, simplicity and cost.
The process of designing and producing a website starts with good planning. We like to start with a site plan - this drives development of the navigation system, as well provides a guide for trouble-free production of the site pages; it allows us to understand the services supplied by your business and your expectations as to what you would like the website to achieve for you, and assists with planning for future expansion of the site.
We construct all of the elements that make up your website according to the site plan. Each website we create is crafted to reflect YOUR business branding and style, it's individually created based on your needs. With our experience over many years, we are able to create a unique look and feel to your website, while our technical skills ensure the site is fully operational and functional.
Well thought-out page content is essential for successful function of the website, both on the level of appeal, interest and relevancy to your browsing visitors, as well as operation within the database environment of search engines such as Google. With such a good-looking site with interesting and relevant content, you'll want visitor hits referred from search engine enquiries - this is when we consider options for Search Engine Optimisation (SEO). We will apply such strategies and site configurations in construction of the site that are relevant to your business type and category with the aim of achieving a high ranking as quickly as possible.
SEO strategies can be applied during construction and at completion of your website as well as post production to boost results to an existing website. This is a complex area, but feel free to call us and discuss how we can help you achieve higher search engine referrals.

In order to publish your website and make it visible to the world, you need to have a space setup on a web server, usually provided by an Internet Service Provider (ISP) into which your website files are placed.
We recommend that you have a registered domain name, which would be similar to your trading name. Your domain name will need to be hosted by an ISP, and the type of account you will need with the ISP will be determined by the size of your website and the functions it performs.
We understand this is an area of some uncertainty to most people, with it's own lingo and technical aspects. We are happy to manage this essential area of your website production without the necessity of your becoming involved with the ISP and will setup the most appropriate account for your particular needs.
