the Web the Way you Want it

Our Point of Difference

Decades of experience, a wide array of tools, and a clear view of the 'Web 3.0'.

We are a full stack development agency delivering Web App solutions that can be viewed as a standard website through your favorite web browser, or installed onto the device of your choice.

Experience

With a career that started at the turn of this century, before 'googling' was a thing (we asked Jeeves), when a website was a folder full of html files, and working with framesets was a big deal, we've seen it all and kicked the tyres on most of it. But we continue to look forward and prepare for what's coming. Things like progressive web app's and the decentralised web.

Over 20 years experience in web development and marketing

Platform Neutral

Leveraging our experience in this space, we are able to call on a wide array of technologies, platforms, and frameworks. This ensures our client gets the solution that meets their needs. From a hyper-performant single page brochure site (like this one), to a custom B2B e-commerce application, to a community news and information site. We have the skills, tools, and knowledge to provide secure, performant, and highly scalable Web App solutions.

Cloud or Dweb hosting

Scalability, availability, and SPEED!

Once you've made that step and created a website, you want your customers to be able to see it whenever they choose. This is where choosing the correct hosting platform is vital.

Our answer is hosting your site on a cloud service or, even better, through a Dweb gateway, so there is no single point of failure. You're website will continue to be available, fullstop.

The ultimate goal of Web 3.0 is to create more intelligent, connected and open websites. For our purposes, the web 3.0 or Dweb (Decentralised Web) offers new opportunities for web developers to provide hosting solutions for our clients that are more secure, more stable, more scalable, and faster. All at a greatly reduced cost for our clients.

A progressive web application is a type of application software delivered through the web, built using common web technologies including HTML, CSS and JavaScript. It is intended to work on any platform that uses a standards-compliant browser, including both desktop and mobile devices.

PWA's were first introduced to the developer world in a white paper produced by Apple Inc. in 2014. Apple chose not to go any further with the idea, and Google picked it up around 2015, 2016. Prior to the appearance of PWA's there were two pathways for software developers. The traditional 'desktop application', built to run directly on the computer with access to all the peripherals (camera, storage, USB, bluetooth etc.) and the web development path, where software is designed to run inside the web browser and cannot communicate with the computer it is running on. However, while traditional developers focused their attention on building 'mobile apps' (a desktop app designed for smaller screens), web developers were working on ways to get their websites to interact with the desktop. The result of that work is the Progressive Web App.

Now that the PWA convention is reaching maturity, web developers are able to interact with a users device in exactly the same manner as a traditional app (application) whether it be on, desktop, tablet, or mobile devices.

You may not have heard of PWA's before, but there's a good chance you've used at least one. Here's a short list of some of the more popular PWA's

  • Facebook
  • Pinterest
  • Twitter
  • Google Maps Go
  • Uber
  • Trivago
  • Tinder
  • AliExpress
  • and my favourite, Spotify

Cloud hosting is the process of outsourcing an organization's computing and storage resources to a service provider that offers its infrastructure services in a utility model. The cloud provider oversees the setup, cloud infrastructure, security and maintenance, while sometimes allowing clients to customize hardware and applications and scale servers online.

Or in non-tech. Hosting on a cloud provider is still very similar to the traditional monolithic hosting model in that your code (your website) resides with a single service provider. Cloud service providers provide many more services and charge clients only for the resources that they have used. ie.

  • Traditional model, Web 1.0: Your website files are stored one of your hosts servers, along with many other peoples sites. All sites are competing for the same computing resources. One very heavily used website can use all the resources leaving other sites under performing. All website owners get charged a set hosting fee regardless of the resources their website actually uses.

  • Cloud Hosting, Web 2.0: Your website files are stored on one of your providers many server clusters and may be replicated to others. All services involved in storing and delivering your website are seperated and resources are applied only as your website needs them. This means,
    1. you only pay for the resources your use,
    2. your website performance will not be impacted by any other website, and
    3. as your website becomes more popular, the underlying structure scales up to ensure your website performance remains high.

  • Distributed web, Web 3.0: With this hosting model you no longer have or need a hosting service. Instead you have a gateway service. Your website files are stored on an encrypted peer to peer network of computers around the planet using blockchain technology. The gateway providers only job is to direct web traffic to your website. As soon as you start using this service you have maximum security, scalability, redundancy, and performance. And because there is no longer a single hosting provider and services are distributed, costs are greatly reduced, in fact usually free for the small start-up site!
