Our skilled consultants can help you create a new site or redesign an existing site. We help you determine the optimum look, navigation, and organization of site content and images so the viewer can easily find what's important about you. We also believe that the most important aspect of web design is unique, solid content and can help you develop that as well. During our design service offerings, you will be able to see progress on a private development site to make sure our visions are in sync.
At 3by400, our mission is to help companies effectively maximize their business using Internet-based tools. Those tools can be for use by the public viewer, segmented user groups, or internally. We also focus on helping organizations get the word out about their company by using current, practical methodologies in web implementation and using a consistent brand.
In tandem with our web site design services, we typically recommend that your new site be based upon a widely implemented Content Management System (CMS). We recommend CMS because it is easier for you to update your site, it provides a template-driven system with a standard look, and provides you long-term scalability. Our CMS of choice is Joomla! because it fits the criteria of being easy to update, template-based, scalable, nicely constructed, and widely supported.
You were sold on Joomla!(TM), but if the person who sold you didn't have Joomla expertise, you probably need help. Our JoomlAid service is simply a quick step to going from a mess to a high-performing site. With experts from the server operating system level to graphics and template issues, we've got you covered. Our familiarity with some of the most popular (and complex) components in the Joomla world can help you get out of the stickiest situations.
Although we prefer to outfit our clients with standard, off-the-shelf software, some needs reach beyond what is commonly available. Thankfully, we have some of the best PHP/SQL development staff in the Southeast. Our developers have the amazing ability to simplify and cut to the chase. Our development style is lean and clean...a great value. You can see some of our publicly offered development on our custom extensions page.
3by400 performs our own Joomla hosting. Why? Because we couldn't find anybody who did it right, in our opinion. We tune our servers for Joomla, we know how to do backups, and we respond to service requests.
For tuning our servers, we pay attention to the Apache parameters, the PHP libraries and extensions, and Linux versions.
Backups are to protect your site from fat-fingered 'oops' moments as well as hardware failures. These two categories require two different types of backup, and we provide both. Protection from 'oops' moments means being able to recreate your site as it was yesterday, the day before, or last week. Protection against hardware failure means being able to get your site back to where it was as close as possible to when the hardware failed, both the files that make up your site and the database from which your content is drawn.
Why bother with a web site if no one sees it? Building a site from the beginning using sound, proven SEO (search engine optimization) methods is not something everyone can do. We stay abreast of the most common search engine criteria for optimum search results and help you get your site to that all-important first page of search
One of our most client-empowering services is thorough training. A core 3by400 belief is that a site is only as good as it is fresh...and who can best keep it fresh better than you? By providing easy-to-use content management systems, we can show you how to perform routine site updates. You are limited only by your time and interest.
