About Me

Web Designer

Who Am I?

My name is Darren, I’m 40 years old with twin boys and a beautiful wife (she might read this!). I started learning web design around 2007, after needing a website myself. I’m based in Blackpool in the North West, but I build websites for businesses across the UK. Besides my family, building websites is what I ❤️.

My History

I was just like you, I needed an amazing website for my business. I was shocked at the prices I was being quoted for a website, so I decided to learn a new skill and create a website myself. Fast forward 12 years and I now specialise in affordable websites for small to medium sized businesses.

Bespoke Websites

I take great pride in building all websites from scratch. I will work closely with you to build a website that meets your business requirements.

Best Web design Prices

I have a real passion for making websites and being a freelance web designer means I can offer the best service and prices.

Help & Support

I’m always available via phone or email should you have any questions about your website.

Fully Responsive

All websites I create are fully responsive. This means your website will not only look great but will also work perfectly on smartphones and tablets.

I Believe In Being Reliable, Professional & Personal.

I have been building websites for 12 years and I pride myself on not only listening to your website needs but also being reliable, professional and friendly.

Frequently Asked Questions

A domain name is the address of your website, for example this website domain name is, www.simple-websites.co.uk. 

Web hosting is basically where you website is stored on the internet. Websites are stored on servers which deliver your website when someone types in your domain name.

Ecommerce is just another way of saying online shop. An eCommerce website could be a simple one page website with one payment button or a full online shop with 100’s of products.

I offer fixed price website design. Unlike some companies I don’t charge by the hour, so you will always know what the cost will be upfront.

All websites come with hosting and .co.uk domain name for the first year, unless you have your own. After the first year your domain name and web hosting will need renewing. Domain names cost £15 a year to renew and web hosting is £60 per year. The web hosting I use is fast and secure.

With most website packages I take a 50% deposit and then the balance on completion, before your website goes live. I also offer flexible payment options so you can spread the cost over 12 monthly payments.

Most websites need to be updated regular to keep them secure and working best. I will update your website weekly for the first year. After the first year I offer maintenance plans to help look after your site. Alternatively I offer free training so you can make changes and updates yourself, if you so wish.
