Our aim at Smokey Planet is to make it easy as easy as possible for everyone to get online and gain a web presence, regardless of your technical ability.
These days, the best place to get noticed is on the world wide web, so whether you're a musician who wants to get noticed, an artist who wants to share your creations with the world, or you're a local business wanting to advertise your services and show examples of your previous work, an online presence could be the answer.
If you want a website that's unique to you, drop us a line. We'll listen to your requirements, and (after a bit of head scratching) figure out the best way to transform that idea into a online reality.
Over 20% of internet users worldwide now connect and surf the web via mobile devices such as smartphones and tablets, as opposed to the usual laptop and desktop methods we're used to.
And with this number constantly growing, it makes sense to cater for smaller screens.
We code our sites in a way that allows the layout to automatically adapt to the screen size of the device being used, so no more zooming in and out to navigate a website.
For an example, if you're using a laptop or desktop to read this, simply resize your browser window and see how this page responds.
If you're wanting to sell items online, we have a selection of online shop 1-Click installs included in our hosting packages, however these can be daunting for the less-technically minded.
If you'd prefer a shop solution that's easy to use and feature-rich, we highly recommend you check out Ecwid. It's mobile-friendly, seamlessly updates automatically and has a ton of features including the ability to sell from within Facebook.
If we're building you a website, we can incorporate Ecwid into the design for no extra cost.
Please note that if you require us to add products and catagories or change the colour scheme of the store itself on your behalf, there will be a charge for this. The cost is dependent on the amount of work required and is confirmed and agreed beforehand.

Websites designed to fit YOUR needs.
Tested with the latest browsers.
HTML 5 / CSS 3 coding for quicker loading pages.
Once you've paid for your site, you are free to host wherever you wish.
Option to host your website in our powerful UK data centres.
The world wide web is constantly evolving, with new technologies appearing all the time. If your current website was built a few years ago, there's a good chance that the source code will contain obsolete mark up language, meaning modern web browsers
render it how they think it should be displayed.
As different browsers use different engines, the results can vary quite a bit.
We can update your old HTML code so it plays nicely with the main modern browsers, and making it smartphone friendly.
We can also edit outdated website content such as pictures and page text.
Often seen as a quick way to get a website, without having to be tied to a host's site builder software, CSS templates can be purchased from a wide array of online marketplaces.
Whilst these are cheaper than custom sites, you may not be the only website with that template.
"Free" CSS templates are available, although there's usually a catch. This could be hidden malicious links within the code or requirements in the licence to link to the designer's site, so shop carefully.
If you've bought a CSS template online, but have found difficulty adding your own content to the source code or you simply don't have the time, we can help with that too.
Just drop us a line with details of your requirements, and we'll do our very best to quote you happy.
