news from port 80 services

Welcome to the all-new Port 80 Services!

Hello to you. If you’ve been to our site before, then you’ll probably have noticed that we’ve just undergone a major design overhaul. And if you havent, then welcome to Port 80 Services!

In our last blog post, we broke the news that at the end of 2014, we took over management of Colleen Sims web design, another web design service in the Dordogne area. Since then, we’ve been working hard on combining our different business models and on updating this website.

Here are the main changes that have taken place at Port 80 Services:

Web design

– We continue to offer the same bespoke web design service as before, but now all sites created will come with responsive functionality as standard. (“Responsive” means the design adapts according to the screen size, so sites display better on mobiles and tablets).

– Domain name and hosting fees for the first year are now included in the price!

– Collen Sims’ Quick and Simple websites option continues to be available. These sites are still custom designed, but are quicker (so cheaper) to produce because the design phase is left up to us. A 5 page, custom designed website is only 285€!

Hosting

– We now offer 2 different hosting plans: shared and private. Our shared option is ideal for the majority of websites. Sites are hosted on Heart Internet, one of the UK’s largest and best providers.

– For advanced websites (ie, sites with databases, online shops etc), our private plan sees your site hosted on a virtual private server with its own dedicated resources. We also perform security updates as part of the service.

Webmaster Services

– Due to popular demand, we now offer Webmaster services. This is a website security service covering things like 24/7 uptime monitoring, off-site back-ups, software updates and server configuration.

Apart from that, it’s business as usual here at port 80! Of course, if you have any questions about our new services, or our new website, please get in touch.
