Get Online Quickly
Simple, no-fuss set-up process.
We know business owners can be busy.
Don’t have time to write content for your site? No pictures? No logo? No problem.
We can arrange everything you’ll need and specialise in getting you online quickly with as much or as little input as you like.
Keep It Fresh
Effortlessly add photos of your recent work to your website.
One of the biggest problems a website can face is neglect. Potential clients want to see that your business is healthy and active with a website that clearly shows recent activity.
We can ensure your website always looks fresh and updated by creating a feed from your company’s social media accounts. Then, whenever you post a picture or status, it will automatically be displayed on your website too with no extra time or effort needed.
Summary of Inclusions
Your website will be:
- Completely responsive across desktops, laptops, tablets and mobile devices.
- Fully editable with a user friendly interface – no coding knowledge will be required to make changes to text, images, fonts, colours, layout and so on.
- Built on WordPress – the most popular website software in the world. This means that other web and marketing professionals will be familiar with your website and be able to jump straight in to conduct any works if need be.

Our 140-Point Website Checklist
We strongly believe it is our 140-point website checklist that truly sets our websites apart.
During every build, we put all of our websites through a 140-point checklist that includes an extensive administrative and functionality polishing process (which is completely separate and in addition to the design process). This list includes such things as installing and configuring website security software, tidying up DNS records, setting up email logging and authentication, user activity logging, image optimisation, anti-spam software and so much more. The result is an exceptionally smooth, secure and well-optimised website.
Our polishing process is the result of years of expertise, ensuring you are given a website where everything has already been preemptively thought about for you, minimising the likelihood that you’ll experience any unexpected issues.
Inclusions & Important Information
Using Google Analytics, we will set up any-time access to your live website visitor statistics. You will be able to view a comprehensive break-down covering your real-time and past visitors, including demographic statistics, time spent on your site, which pages are being visited, and so much more.
All of the websites that we build are fitted with basic SEO (Search Engine Optimisation). Using the Google Search Console, we will set up your website for indexing on the Google search engine, including the submission of your sitemap.
We also install the industry-leading Yoast SEO plugin on all websites, to assist you with optimising your text content as well as ensuring your pages appear correctly in organic Google search results. While no particular organic page rank can ever be guaranteed (by anyone!), your website’s organic rankings for various keywords may improve naturally over time. Behind the scenes, Yoast will also provide a variety of best-practice SEO improvements across your website.
Our websites are all set up with industry-leading security software, to protect them from a range of online threats including spammers, SQL injection, DDOS and more.
We provide an unlimited number of revisions up until the website is launched to the public.
Frequently Asked Questions
Yes – if you want to. We offer and support the WooCommerce platform for any eCommerce requests. This platform integrates with WordPress seamlessly and will add a powerful range of shop functions to your dashboard such as inventory management, shipping, tax and order processing.
Both you and your customers will be able to receive email order notifications/receipts from your website.
You will be provided with your own account that you can use to login to your website. Clients who opt for our WordPress Website Maintenance Plan or WordPress Website Support Plan will, by default, be given a login with either ‘Editor’ or ‘Shop Manager’ access permissions (depending whether or not your website has a shop). These access levels will allow you to access and edit all of your media, post and page content (including products and orders for eCommerce websites), should you wish to do so.
At your request, we can increase your account to ‘Administrator’ access. This is suitable for website owners who are confident with website management and wish to do more than just publish/edit posts and pages, or manage their store.
Alternatively, if you are not comfortable logging in to your website at all, and prefer us to make all edits and changes, that’s completely fine too. No access will be provided to the WordPress dashboard, as this will be entirely managed for you.
Yes, very in fact! We use the industry-leading WordPress platform which is incredibly user-friendly. You will have your own dashboard that you may log into to edit your posts and pages if you wish to do so.
You don’t need any prior experience or any coding knowledge to make most content changes. The editor interface looks and feels reasonably similar to a lot of document publishing software – Microsoft Word for example.
This depends on the size and complexity of each individual website, though on average we suggest a 4 week turnaround once the website build has commenced. The true timeline however may range from a couple of weeks to a couple of months or more for very large or complex builds.
Within your proposal, we will provide you with our next available date to begin your website build, as well as a timeline outlining each stage of the project right up until completion.
There’s a few things we will need from you to be able to complete your new website.
Domain Registration Access
We may need access to your domain registration, such as if we need to point it to our web hosting servers. If you do not already have a domain registration, or if you would like to transfer it to Silvercode to keep everything in the same place, please check out our Domain Registration service.
If you already have a logo, we will require a copy of it in either vector .eps, .ai or .pdf file format. If you are uncertain what format you have, please feel free to send through what you have and we will let you know if there are any issues. If you require your existing logo to be converted to vector, refreshed/re-designed, or if you need a brand new logo to be created for you, please check out our Graphic Design service.
You have three main options when it comes to images for your website:
- You can supply us with the images you wish to use on your website (you must own or have an appropriate licence to use your chosen images).
- You can purchase regular or premium Stock Images to use on your website.
- We can source a limited variety of royalty-free images for you to use at no extra cost.
You have two main options when it comes to the text for your website:
- You supply us with the text you wish to use on your website.
- You can purchase our Copywriting/Content Creation service, to have us write your text content for you.
Social Media Access
We may require access to some of your social media accounts to integrate them with your website. We only require this access temporarily, and once integrated, you are free to change your password as you wish.
