Who Am I?
Hello, I’m Darren.
I’m 40 years old with twin boys and a beautiful wife (she will read this!). I started building websites around 2010 after needing a website myself. I’m approachable, easy to work with and I love to create websites that not only look great but they also give your customers an enjoyable user experience.
I’m based in Blackpool in the North West, but I build websites for businesses across the UK.
Besides my family and performing magic, building websites is what I ❤️.
Help & Support
Support is at the heart of my business and that’s why I provide a top quality personalised service. You will always personally deal with me should you have any questions.
I’m always available via phone or email should you like to chat.
Get in touch and let’s chat about your business and website needs. I can then give you a rough idea how long your website will take and an idea of cost.
Having a chat is free and I’m happy to give you help and advice.
After our initial conversation I will send you details about your new website, including costs, time scale and any design ideas. When you are happy, I will make a start on the design.
Throughout the design processes I will always keep you in the loop as your website unfolds. You will receive a unique link so you can view the progress at anytime.
When the site is finished and tested on various devices and you are happy, I will launch the website for you. Our partnership will then continue as I help you learn how to make changes to your website or I will maintain it for you.
Frequently Asked Questions
A domain name is the address of your website, for example this website domain name is, www.simple-websites.co.uk.
Web hosting is basically where you website is stored on the internet. Websites are stored on servers which deliver your website when someone types in your domain name.
Ecommerce is just another way of saying online shop. An eCommerce website could be a simple one page website with one payment button or a full online shop with 100’s of products.
I offer fixed price website design. Unlike some companies I don’t charge by the hour, so you will always know what the cost will be upfront.
All websites come with web hosting if needed. After the first year your web hosting will need renewing. My web hosting costs £65 per year. The web hosting I use is fast and secure.
With most website packages I take a 50% deposit and then the balance on completion, before your website goes live. I also offer flexible payment options so you can spread the cost and pay monthly.
All websites need to be updated regular to keep them secure and working best. I offer free training with all websites so you can easily make changes and updates yourself. Alternatively I offer a monthly maintenance plan so you don’t have to worry about updates or backing up your website. I will take care of everything for you!
