You have complete control of your web content and can add/edit/delete product information, build a new site section, alter your branding or launch a new marketing initiative in minutes.

Peace of Mind Installations

You may be scratching your head and asking yourself, why would I ever pay for an installation? That is a good question considering how easy it is to install extensions in Joomla. Our Installation services don't stop upon installation. We also configure, quality assure, and then give you basic support on your extension. Some extensions can be simple, you should do that yourself, but some extensions have a huge amount of options, you might want to let us deal with those. Inevitably something always goes wrong, it is good to have a backup you can trust, but it’s even better to have a developer you can rely on to get it developed right the first time.

Content Services

Content is crucial. It is where you connect with your site's visitors. So it's important not only that it's readable, but that it's grammatically correct, punctuated, and free of spelling errors. Perhaps your grammar is good but your HTML is poor, so your content isn't spaced right or there is just something strange about the way it is rendered on the page. We understand we deal with this all the time. Some of our clients, flat out, just don't want to take the time to organize their content; they've got a business to run. You run your business; let us take care of your site. Send us your content and we'll publish it correctly.

Cost of a Typical Website

Different Website design companies offer varying degrees of service, so comparisons are not always easy. Ofinet - IT Solutions offers a quality, made-to-measure, rather than a budget "off-the-shelf" service. Furthermore, the time needed for the work (and therefore the cost) depends a great deal on what you are having on your site. Original graphic artwork, or original video footage or music score will be more costly than a primarily text site.

For these reasons, Ofinet prefer to price specifically for your needs, but you need at least a very general idea of what is included in a "typical" page and what that would cost.

By "typical" - meaning any combination of or, if appropriate, all of the following:

    1. All the advice and help you need to design and set up your website initially, including help to choose an ISP or webhost that meets your needs, together with an aftercare service second to none. We make it a worry-free experience for you.
    2. Ofinet provide an original header graphic based on your scanned logo or trademark and modified to suit or we will design one from scratch if you don't yet have one.
    3. Up to two additional custom scanned or stock images as appropriate per page.
    4. Headers, rules, bullet points and decorative features as appropriate according to design, and made specifically for your site.
    5. Buttons and image bars as appropriate made specifically for your site...
    6. Text that you provide on floppy disc. Ofinet can handle most formats.
    7. Providing a background colour or colours or creating an original background graphic made specifically for your site if necessary.
    8. Sizing and enhancement of all graphics and photographs to suit the design.
    9. Tables to position features or tabulated data with up to 40 cells in total.
    10. Links to other sites or pages as appropriate.
    11. Content links and page navigation graphics on long pages.
    12. A text based navigation map at the foot of multipage sites.
    13. An image map or system of image maps as appropriate on very large sites.
    14. Email address and contact data supplied by you incorporated on each page if appropriate.
    15. Testing of all links, both off and online.
    16. Uploading to your Web space.
    17. Registering with all the main search engines.
    18. Up to 4 hours "get you going" training if you need it to setup and learn how to use email and how to surf the web and use search engines.
    19. Provide template pages for you to update information on your own website if you want to do it yourself.
    20. A security copy of your website on CD or floppy disk.
    21. Code that you can give to others so they can link to your site from theirs.
    22. Links from our websites to your own.
    23. Minor alterations to the pages for three months after completion of the work.

Optimization

Our optimization services were created to make your site go faster. Joomla regularly suffers under heavy weight issues because people don't realize how much they add to their site when they put a tiny module on their page. If your site is running slow it may be from a variety of different reasons. Our optimization services tackle these bottlenecks from many different directions. Some of our services will substantially speed up your site and others will fine tune the performance, both optimization types should be done upon sites that need to perform.

Custom Development

So you've gone through all the extension options out there and you realized you need to create your own custom extension solution. If you don't know PHP then you are going to have to find a developer who can create your idea for you. Make sure your developer is familiar with the Joomla framework, it’s easy on the surface but under the user interface there are thousands (yes, thousands) of pages with hundreds of lines of code on each. Is your developer up to the task? We are. This whole site is custom built. There isn't anything within Joomla we can't do for you. Try us out!

Our inclusive charge for a quality one page typical site would be around £210.
Here again there will be variations depending on whether the price includes a lot of photographs and artwork, uploading, testing, registering with the search engines, on-site training, and post sales support.
Our charge for a quality ten page typical site would be around £1,000. As size increases, generalisations become even more difficult.
