We Build Professional Responsive Websites
We have been building websites since the very first days of the internet. This has exposed us to a huge variety of different internet technologies and also taught us a wide range of skills that help us build truly professional websites. Below you will find a breakdown of some of these skills and also see exactly what we can do for you.
What we offer
Custom Drupal Development
Our weapon of choice is Drupal, a powerful Content Management System used around the world by some of the world's top companies. Namhost placed in the top 10% of all Drupal Web Developers in the World. (Yes, that means we did better than 90% of all Drupal Developers on Planet Earth). We are also, without a doubt, the leading Drupal web development team in Namibia.More Information
As of 2014 we only build websites that are responsive. We have found that in many cases more than half of all traffic to websites in Namibia and South Africa are from users on mobile devices. If half of your visitors have trouble viewing your website because it is not responsive and therefore not easy to follow on a mobile device, you will lose a lot of potential clients. To build responsive websites, we generally use either Twitter-bootstrap or Foundation as our CSS framework of choice.More Information
Most web development companies focus on template or theme solutions. This is when companies pre-built templates that are available to the public. While there are some amazing template designs out there, they rarely tie in correctly with the brand of the company. That is why each website we build is a unique design, specifically built from the ground up for our clients.
We have extensive experience in implementing E-Commerce solutions. From designing an optimal cart right down to implementing the payment gateway necessary to receive payments online. We know the best practices and use them to implement reliable, scalable and secure solutions. By using Open-Source frameworks we also lower your project costs while increasing the quality and number of features your final product will have, making our solutions real value for money.More Information
Graphic & Website Design
Designing a website takes a lot more than simply choosing something that is visually appealing to you. What should be most important is that your clients like your website and that the website drives even more clients to your business. That is why we hire individuals that can do amazing designs but also understand how that ties into the brand and ultimately future marketing efforts. If your website does not appeal to your target market, your brand will suffer. We know how to build websites that build brands.
While in many cases we feel a responsive design can completely eliminate the need for a mobile application, there are still several cases where building a native application is a far better solution. Some of the solutions we have built have relied on a combination of responsive website design and having a mobile application for more advanced features. Whatever you need, Android or Apple, we can help you find the best solution.More Information
Search Engine Optimization (SEO)
While we feel that Search Engine Optimization forms part of a strong marketing campaign, there are still various on-site technical requirements that affect SEO during development. We build websites that adhere to current trends and keeping best practices in mind from beginning to end. In doing so, we ensure an overall stronger web presence that helps you get closer to the first page of Search Engines.More Information
We offers advanced tools with which to launch massive marketing campaigns, including our very own Banner Network, Our own Media Blog, Bulk SMS tools and Newsletter Manager. These are all tools we use to help further promote your business. If you really want to get noticed quickly, let us include a marketing schedule for launch date of your website!More Information
We Speak Nerd
Some older projects we manage are still stored in Subversion (SVN) repositories, but for most part, we prefer to use Git. Having reliable version control in place not only gives you the benefit of having a backup in place, but it also makes finding bugs easier, allows more developers to work together, gives you a complete log of all changes to the website, saves development time and in general, just makes good development sense!More Information
Businesses often require tailor-made database solutions specific to their business. We have qualified senior developers that have extensive experience in designing databases and deciding on the best technologies to use to solve more complicated database problems. With our database design skills, we have also done many projects that required advanced SQL queries and other database programming techniques. Let us help you get to the bottom of your Database problems?More Information
Whether you need blog posts, press releases, reviews, biographies or just really good copy for your website, we know how to turn your ideas into writing that aches to be read. We have written copy for several websites and also write for various blogs on a regular basis. We know how to get the right message across to our readers!More Information
We build rock-solid applications with a very strong focus on security. We have seen the damage that can be caused when a system is not secure and are proud to be actively involved in fighting malicious users on a daily basis. Due to the nature of our business, we are exposed to the latest tricks that malicious users apply in order to gain illegal access to accounts. Due to our experience dealing with all sort of unethical behaviour, we have become very good at finding and stopping security threats on web applications.More Information
Web Hosting and Domain Name Registration
We are also able to host any of the projects we build. Namhost started off as a hosting company, but has grown into much more. We have data centers right across the world and can easily host your website in the best location for your business. Domain Registration is also possible as we currently support over 200 different domain extensions, including .na domain names. Any hosting service you could need, we can provide, including SSL services, IP services, Backup Services, Root Access and much more.More Information
Website Updates and Maintenance
Would you rather not go through the hassle of making changes to your website yourself every month? While we do build all our solutions with administrative interfaces that allow anyone with the right password to make even the most advanced changes on the website, we do still offer clients the opportunity to pass maintenance and upgrade work on to us. If you have more mundane tasks such as uploading product updates, we can do that for you, or help you figure out better, faster and possibly autonomous ways to get the work done!More Information
