What does it take to design a website?
That depends on what your business goals are.  E-commerce, advertising and information websites all require a uniquely different approach. Regardless, there is one common requirement, a web design company willing in listen to what your goals are. They have to be interested in working with you to accomplish your mission. With over 12 years and hundreds of websites completed, Iboza is more interested in your success than adding to our portfolio.Our design - program team are well versed in working with customers, they're all seasoned veterans with many years experience. They understand that their skills are required not only to design, build and program your website but to help you design a solution to solve your online problems.


What does it cost to build a website? There really is no set price. Iboza does not work from an ala carte menu, every customer is unique, every problem is approached based on the customer's needs first. For customers who have challenges requiring a quick, cost-effective website, Iboza is also expert in the Open Source world. It's no secret that these days Content Management has reached far beyond where it was just 5 years ago. Free Open Source programs like Joomla, Drupal, Word Press just to name a few, have made Enterprise level inter-activity available to businesses for little to no cost. There are however considerations that should be made. Websites of this nature require specialized hosting, a high level of user ability and generally a good understanding regarding how they work. Our experience has been that this is a daunting task for a business owner; taking time away from work to build a "pre-built" website can delay launch, cause frustration and add to an already heavy work-load. These websites, if desired, can all be installed, hosted, filled with content and launched on our servers by our professionals.
There is no need for you or your staff  to ponder through  multiple drop down lists full of confusing packages offering a bewildering amount of information regarding bandwidth, control panels, reporting tools, hosting packages and we haven't even touched on security, updates and back-ups. We do this for you after first consulting and defining the need.


Custom Website Solutions.
You've looked into the off-the-shelf  offerings and for what ever the reason they just don't work for your business. Iboza can develop websites from the traditional html based low cost static website up to the high-end custom Content Managed dynamic website, purpose built to achieve a prescribed set of deliverables. We have done this for many businesses, government agencies and not-for-profits, we can do the same for your business.Our programming team are expert ASP, ASP.Net and Php programmers. We develop on our own development web servers and thoroughly test every website and application before it is deployed. We support all applications through the lifetime of the website. There is never a need to go else where for expertise in the care and feeding of your business website.

Off-the-Shelf / Open Source.
Given the high availability of "free" website software many clients approach us to fast track them through the bewilderment of trying to take advantage of these soft wares. If your company needs are traditional and you want to get up and running for a small investment in time and effort these types of websites are great. Many web companys offer very expensive alternatives to these. An Open Source website based on Joomla! ® can handily compete with the numerous "custom" shoebox CMSs for a fraction of the price, plus give one serious yet unseen advantage. portability. When you and your web host part company your website is lost, but with a Joomla! ® or Drupal ® site for example, you can take it with you!
