Who Am I?
Hello my name is Darren.
I’m 40 years old with twin boys and a beautiful wife (she will read this!). I started learning web design around 2010 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 and performing, building websites is what I ❤️.
I needed an amazing website for my business, so I decided to learn a new skill and create a website myself.
After building several websites for myself, friends started to ask if I could create a website for them. I have now been building professional websites for over 10 years!
What I Do
I offer bespoke website design & development as well as website management for small businesses, entrepreneurs, clubs, sole traders, charities or anyone looking to get online.
I have a real passion for making websites and being a freelance web designer means I can offer the best prices and a personal service.
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 £65 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 and pay monthly.
All websites need to be updated regular to keep them secure and working best. I offer free training with all websites so you can easily make changes and updates yourself. Alternatively I offer a monthly maintenance plan so you don’t have to worry about updates or backing up your website. I will take care of everything for you!
