Web Design by Forth Web
East Lothian near Edinburgh, Scotland

Custom Web Designs – WordPress or HTML. You decide.

There are many ways to build a website. It may look exactly the same when viewed using Internet Explorer, Google Chrome or Firefox. However the way a website is built and the code used to build that site is an important part of how it looks, performs and where it appears in Google.

At Forthweb we will design a website which is unique to you and your company. Some web designers simply take an existing template and change an image and change some text. The result is a website which looks like the original template and many other sites which have used the template. Because we know the code behind the template we can create a unique great looking website that is original to you.

At Forthweb we do not restrict you to websites built using only one system. We can build websites using handcoded html or WordPress.

Need a website built or changed ?

East Lothian web design, Edinburgh web design, or anywhere web design. We can design you a mobile friendly website wherever you are.

Features or Alterations

Many web designers do not understand the HTML code that is used in the background to create a website and cannot make alterations to the website template. As a result you might be stuck with a layout that looks identical to many other sites who used the same template and you cannot change it.

At Forthweb because we know HTML we can add features and make alterations to your website. We do not charge anything extra for adding things.

Need a secure Contact Form ?  not a problem.

    • Contact Form. A contact form gives people an easy way to contact you. Many people prefer using a contact form  instead of having to phone or use an e mail service to contact you. A form gives your website a professional look and feel.

    • Recaptcha – Protects your form from spam and abuse. The “im not a robot” or similar device normally appears at the foot of your contact form. Without one of these challenges you are likely to be inundated with spam messages. We will set this up on any of your contact forms.
    • SSL Certificate. If you have a contact form Google also want you to have an SSL certificate if you don’t have one they will mark your site as being “insecure” which can then affect your ranking. Forthweb can install one of these for you at no extra cost when you ask us to build you a new website.

    Want a Video on your website ?  not a problem.

    Videos on your website are popular and can help educate and entertain your visitors or promote the services you provide. Above is a video about hypnotherapy from JF Hypnotherapy. Note: we do not make the videos for you.

    Need a new Mobile Friendly Website ?

    Web design is constantly evolving. A static website used to be the only type of website that was available. It is a website that fits a standard static desktop computer screen. A couple of years ago all websites were built this way. But a static website does not adapt to fit different screen sizes and it does not display properly if viewed from a mobile phone.

    There are now more people accessing the internet using handheld devices than desktop computers. To be seen by these people you need to change from a static site to a mobile-friendly site .

    Google has said that they want one mobile-friendly website that adapts to all devices and added that they will penalise websites that are not responsive.

    At Forthweb all our new East Lothian web designs are built to be mobile-friendly. We build one site that adapts to fit any device.

    If you have an existing static website then we can convert it to a responsive mobile-friendly design. Contact us for details.

    WordPress – Content Management  ?

    When getting a website many people ask for a content management site such as WordPress. A CMS (Content Management System) can be set up to allow the website owner to change some content on their site by themselves. They forget that a WordPress site also needs to be kept up to date and secure or else it becomes vulnerable to hackers.

    The danger with a CMS (content management system) is that by changing the site themselves an owner can actually damage the site rankings. Simply ask me and I can change the website for you. That way I can make sure that any changes to not damage where the site ranks.

    At Forth Web we have been designing Edinburgh and East Lothian websites for many years. We know what will work for you to appear in Google.
