Bespoke websites and applications
Our Web Development team build sophisticated web applications from the ground up to fit your exact business requirements.
From mission-critical systems that manage the queue timing at Heathrow to writing logic that matches young people with great career ideas, we can do it all.
A bespoke website or online store will always run faster than an off-the-shelf platform. There is also the added benefit that the code is not published for anyone to download, therefore being a much more secure option.
Website optimisation and Best practices
Users and search engines such as Google love well-coded fast-loading webpages. We have strict guidelines for our web developers and back these up with analytics and monitoring tools.
A badly coded website is slow, unreachable and not fit for purpose. At Devstars, we take Website Optimisation seriously. Deploying brilliantly coded sites that adhere to the following principles:
Page speed is vital. Google uses page-load times to rank your site, PLUS users will not wait for websites to load.
Our development techniques make sure everything is in the right place to make your website run smoothly. Gzip compressions, correct image dimensions and CDNs are just a few techniques to help keep fast loading times. We have optimised sites for international boy bands and multi-national phone companies, so you can trust us to optimise yours.
Effective development is built on facts. Our sites include Google Analytics to gather results and plan future optimisation and development around user engagement and results. What are users looking at? Where do they drop off the site? Are your call-to-actions clear?
We can write monthly reports, allowing you to make the best decisions as your site or store grows.
IP lists, honey traps, 2 step verification. With so many security measures put in place, you can trust Devstars to create secure sites. Let us take out the worry of security risks and online threats. Find out more about our top security tips here.
