Do you require a world class corporate site, a friendly welcoming community site, or even something just plain funky? Whatever your design requirements, our design and development team caters for all audiences and markets. We have a wide range of designers at our disposal all from a variety of different design backgrounds, offering you a unique and beautifully designed website.
Not only do we offer great websites, we also provide bespoke web applications, or apps, such as the complete packages of e-commerce and secure online accounts, Customer Relationship Systems and Content Management Systems. We take your ideas and tailor them to create fully functional, user friendly and intuitive applications making complicated concepts simple.
Having a well designed website is useless without a valid W3C and Web 2.0 build behind it. Why does this matter you ask? Today's websites require high ranking by search engines (Search Engine Optimisation SEO), accesible pages and cross-browser compatability (Microsoft Internet Explorer 7+, Mozilla Firefox, Safari, Opera and Google Chrome) to reach the top of the pack. Our professional web development team at Fantasmagorical specialises in SEO, keeping up to date with the latest techniques to guide your site to make the most of its listing potential.
Imagine PHP as the brain of your site and MySQL as the heart, for most CMS, e-commerce, blogs or other data driven websites they require server-side assistance which is where PHP and MySQL help out. We develop all of our websites using PHP, MySQL and our complex bespoke systems are built using an MVC framework called CakePHP, creating scalable, cost effective and dynamic sites to suit your needs and budget.
Keeping your website alive and rich with content with pages that you can update is vital for visiting traffic. Regularly updating news articles, shows or product lists requires an efficient Content Management System (CMS). The Fantasmagorical is well equiped to design and build a bespoke CMS to satisfy all your requirements and we don't use out of the box shopping carts, e-commerce solutions or blogs, because your system should be designed around you!
One of the first steps for any website is registering and purchasing the domain name or URL of your new website, such as the one for this Fantastic site (www.fantasmagorical.co.uk). We can obtain most web-based suffixes on the market (.co.uk, .com, .tv, .org etc...) from as little as £4 per year. As long as the domain name or names are available we will be able to purchase it for you on your behalf with no intial setup fees or hidden charges.
So, you've got a great looking, functional website, what's next? Every website needs to hosted on a server for your prospective clients from all over the globe to actually view and use your site. We can host your brand new or existing website for you on our dedicated and secure servers and if we've built your site you get the first years hosting and email management free of charge.
What's the point of having a brilliant site designed and developed by Fantasmagorical, if people can't get in touch quickly and conveniently. This is why we offer as many e-mail accounts that you require to help run your business. Whether you need email@example.com, or firstname.lastname@example.org, or email@example.com then you've got 'em.
In order to grow our business, and run it more efficiently, we realized that investing in a comprehensive system to manage our online store, products, stock, website content, as well back-end procedures, including company accounts was key. We tested many other off the shelf systems which promised to allow us to fulfill all our CMS and back-end requirements, but we always found one or two niggling shortfalls that did not allow us to do exactly what was needed. And the costs when all the extra were added into the equation where prohibitive and meant that we would not be able to implement the type of system we required.
Thankfully we were referred to Steve Thompson from Fantasmagorical. Steve has worked tirelessly to create a bespoke system unique to our business requirements. In a world where IT costs have sky rocketed, Steve has always worked to the agreed budget, and his open and honest approach is greatly appreciated! Changes when required are made quickly, and he has always answered questions sent on e-mail within the hour, if not within minutes! The impact of the system on the running of the business and most importantly on sales and customer service has been truly remarkable. If you are serious about growing your business, and realize the true value of a bespoke system, then look no further than Steve and Fantasmagorical. Please do not hesitate to contact me personally on firstname.lastname@example.org should you have any questions.
