Web Design - Lucy Jordanoff

Professional WordPress Web Design & Online Marketing

I specialise in creating professional and affordable WordPress websites with a focus on clean and simple designs. I provide training to allow the client to take control of their website, empowering them to make simple updates themselves without having to hire a designer each time.

Who I can help

My web design services are best suited to small businesses and individuals who are looking for a professional website that doesn’t require too much complex functionality.

Who I can’t help

My services don’t suit bigger businesses who are looking for complex functionality or a custom coded website. I can do small coding modifications as part of my fee, however I do not code from scratch. If you have more complex requirements I would always recommend you go to a dedicated web design agency where you can utilise the expertise of a whole team, rather than 1 freelancer.

Website Hosting & Domain Names

Preferred Host: Ventra IP

My preferred website hosting company is Ventra Ip. I am not an affiliate of them and I don’t earn money for recommending them, I’ve just had really good experiences using them compared to many of the other more well known companies.

Reasons to love Ventra IP

  • Australian based with fast Australian support
  • Hosting is optimised for WordPress
  • Free backup options as standard
  • Free basic SSL certificates for all websites
  • Email Accounts Included
  • Better more affordable options for simple websites not expecting large amounts of traffic (around $6.95 per month)

What is hosting & domain names anyway?

To put it simply and compare building a website to building a house. The website hosting is the plot of land that you build your house/website on. The domain name is like the street address  (website address www.mywebsite.com).

All website owners have to pay the annual fees for website hosting & their domain name ownership, and this fee is usually paid directly to the hosting company.

When building your website,  I will set all this up for you.
