Web Development

What is Web Development?

Why is it so important?

Web development refers to the coding of the website. An analogy would be the building of a house. Web development is the structure – the bricks and mortar. Web design would be the decoration and finish to make it look nice.

Just like building a house there are many different ways to do it. All of them can be good if done well. We specialise in WordPress, Woocommerce, Drupal, Magento, Laravel web and ecommerce websites. These are built using PHP7, HTML5, CSS3 and Javascript. We also do Ruby on Rails custom websites as well as standard HTML5 websites. 

Red or Dev Web Development agency are happy to take your design that was made by someone else and turn it into a fully functioning website. Please contact us for more details on a web development build only.

Website Development is very important because if built badly, just like a house, you will suffer severe consequences. Functionality might not work as you would like, visitors could experience a broken site and go elsewhere and basically your site will just not be good enough. It might look nice but not work and give a bad user experience.

Web Development built

to a high standard with British quality

Our Web Development team has 20 years of experience and are experts in PHP, HTML5, CSS3, Javascript and Ruby on Rails. They have worked across the globe in agencies and corporations. 

We have worked on many different sized sites from one page websites, small business or informational sites through to large ecommerce and corporate sites. Our developers have worked on both internal systems and external web sites. From basic text sites to dynamic database-driven websites. 

We ensure we always keep in mind security, usability, user experience, interactivity, search engine optimisation (SEO) and accessibility when building all of our websites to give you sound piece of mind that your site will not only look good but will work great too and above all else will be secure.

We check our sites work on multiple platforms and devices from windows to macs, from desktops to laptops to tablet to mobile phones.

WordPress Web Development

We use several different CMSs here at Red or Dev but we recommend using WordPress for various reasons. It’s incredibly easy to use, it has a wealth of plugins and can be easily customised. It powers 32% of the web and be used for a whole range of different sites. Nearly all of our packages we have on offer at Red or Dev and even some custom packages use wordpress.

One of the reasons we like using wordpress is ease of use. And it’s even easier when we combine it with the Elementor plugin. It allows for powerful page building and is included on all of packages. When used with wordfence it is also very secure. WordPress is great for SEO and is so much more than just a blogging platform. It’s highly customisable and we can tailor wordpress to use for any site.

Red or Dev is also happy to take over the hosting and maintenance of your current wordpress website and update any functionality that you may require.

Because we are using open source technology, along with some paid for plugins, you know hundreds of people have worked on them and they function very well. The less customisation required the cheaper the total price for you.
