Services

Web Development & Design

Nearly any business service can safely be made available to users anywhere, to use any time. We, as a society, have become comfortable with this idea, in fact expect a business to provide some portion of its business via the Internet. A website is often the first point of contact for customers, that all-important first impression n a competitive world. The question today, is how to get the most for each technology Dollar, Pound, Euro, etc spent, how to reach the “right” people and reliably deliver the message, product and/or service they will be compelled to act upon.

Its crystal clear, each business needs the very best website available. What is often not as clear is: how to go about getting a great website.

For many, Openly Connected's experience and skill are a good place to start, the OC partners have been designing & building cutting-edge Browser Based software (Websites) since the early days of the Internet. The OC value proposition is: “our ability to cut through the techno-jargon pragmatic functional solution while remaining focused on business objectives and the bottom line to deliver an affordable, functional, effective website.”

Starting with a clear business case, add a clean, beautiful design, make it go with technical expertise and ensure it is available to ALL OF THE USERS, ALL OF THE TIME is what Openly Connected reliably does best, plain and simple.

Managed Hosting

Openly Connected offers website hosting; with a human touch.

To a website, hosting is its' home on the Internet. Selecting web hosting can be mind numbing, it seems there are nearly as many options for hosting as there are websites, in Feb 2010 a Google search for “Website Hosting” returned 74,300,000 options. Then there is evaluating long tables of esoteric options.

Depending on how many visitors, the need for extra security, streaming video or audio, how much computing power and how much data you need to store will determine what type of hosting you will need and how much it will cost. The cost vary as much as everything else, from as little as a few dollars a month to a site like Wikipedia, which spends over $100,000 per month! Buy too little and your visitors will pay the price or overspend on the wrong bits and bobs and you get the same result with money down the drain to boot! The fact is, web hosting is very important, a slow loading or worse unavailable website, seriously negates the great work which went into building a site.

Openly Connected offers website hosting; with a human touch... means we take care of the details, we understand the ins and outs of what it takes to put a website on line and keep it there. Openly Connected utilizes “Cloud” technology which in essence means each of our hosted sites is part of a huge computer system which has access to the entire systems resources, virtually never running our of power. Managed hosting means experts making sure a website is getting exactly what it needs for optimal performance as well as some one looking after the managed site, monitoring up-time, applying update and security patches as well as an available technician to answer support requests.

Openly Connected happily supplies managed hosting and support for their sites. Sophisticated
