Zend Certified PHP & MySQL
Dynamic application code for your website is written in PHP - the world's largest open source scripting language (as used by the world's busiest websites: Facebook, YouTube etc.) - by a Zend Certified Engineer (ZCE). This ensures that your website features the very highest standard of code, speed of application and protection from attacks by malicious users.
PHP integrates seamlessly with the world's best and most stable open source database server, MySQL. Each of our developers is highly experienced in writing advanced SQL database queries, ensuring your website is fast and responsive for your users. MySQL has a much lower total cost of ownership than other database servers, yet provides similar performance and stability. It is used on websites the world over, including Facebook, YouTube, Yahoo! and even Google!
Search Engine Optimisation
Every website we produce is pre-optimised for search engine performance and features SEO controls within the administration section of the website. Further, we will install analytics software and conversion tracking of your choice.
