Webberman develops websites for businesses in Eastern Ontario, including Alexandria, Arnprior, Belleville, Brockville, Cornwall, Gananoque, Kemptville, Kingston, Merrickville, Ottawa, Perth, Peterborough, Renfrew and Smiths Falls.

So if you only get what you pay for, how do we keep our rates low? Simple. We don't use a rented office space, rather we work from home in a dedicated home office area. This reduces our overheaad, and we pass the savings on to our clients.

Ready to talk? We can meet with you in Cornwall, or discuss your plans by phone or email should you be anywhere else. Our goal is to build you a unique website, which will rank high in Google, bring you visitors, and convert them into buyers. We've been website developers since 1996, and keep up with current trends. Please contact us for your web design needs, and we'll be happy to discuss them with no obligation.

We Are Webberman

Website Developer / Designers

At Webberman, the customer is king. We will learn about what they wish to accomplish, perhaps offer some suggestions, and then design a unique website that will fill those needs, usually surpassing expectations. We speak plain English and conduct our business in a friendly manner. Our aim is to provide each client with a website that will bring them more business, through awareness of their business and through use of text that will not only provide a high search ranking, but also entice their customers to make purchase decisions.

Our Process

How We Work With You
1

Listen To You

We usually schedule a meeting, but this can be done by phone or email as well. We'll ask for lots of input from you, and will suggest things as well. Our goal is to know what you want done and to make sure we can do it - often in a unique way that is pleasing both to the eye and the pocketbook.

2

Think About It

When inspiration is fresh, it usually doesn't take us much time to think things through. As we start trying things out, we may scrap ideas and start new ones, but never at your expense. We will have provided a quote and will stick to it.

3

Create It

As we start the development of your website, we'll send you a link so you can see it as it is being built. This way, you can always provide input and have opportunities to request changes early on. It means your website will be done faster, and will be to your liking.

Skills and Services

Some aspects of what we provide

Creative Design

Our Creative Department will provide input on the design of your website, sticking to your instructions, yet offering suggestions on colors, layouts, etc. in a way that will make the website easy on the eyes.

Made With Love

At Webberman, we create websites as though they are our children. We want them to be what the client wants, but also pleasing to the client's customers. We put our hearts into every website we develop.

100% Responsive

Every website we create will respond automatically to whatever device it is being viewed on. That means those with a huge desktop, users of tablets or pads, and phone users, will all have a great experience.

Excellent Support

Should you have questions, concerns, or perhaps want something changed on your website, we are always here. We maintain a number of websites and are usually able to make changes within one business day.

Easy To Customize

Want a new feature? We can usually add it quickly and make it look as if it was always a part of your website. Our maintenance rates are very affordable too. Don't be afraid to ask for a quote.

Copy Writing

We understand that the text on your website serves two purposes - to get you high rankings in the search engines, and also to entice your customers to make purchace decisions. We can help with both of these.

Clean Code

When we create a website, we use HTML, which is the language of the web. We create or customize professional code so that your site loads quickly, works on various systems, and ranks well in search engines.

Unique

Every website we develop is unique, which means we can match your logo colors, or even create one for you. We also take photos, in case you need them for your website. We always build unique websites.

Web Hosting Plans

Unlike most web hosts, our data centre is located in Toronto, ON, Canada. This means shorter hops from your customers devices to your website. What's more, our data centre is very reliable, secure, and fast! Choose from one of our two plans below and we can get you set up.

Premium Hosting

(under $15/mth)

  • PLENTY OF SPACE - We provide 1G of space on this plan. Since most websites are only 10 to 50megs, you'll never run out of space. This plan is ideal for customers whose websites we have developed and maintain.

  • OUR OWN SHARED IP ADDRESS - We share space on a server with our own IP address, not one shared with strangers who might get the IP blacklisted. Rest assured your website will be fast, reliable and secure in our shared server space. We know who our customers are, and 90% of the websites are one's we manage.

  • FREE LET'S ENCRYPT SECURE SITE - Your website will have the https:// prefix, meaning it will be encrypted and secure. Some web browsers have recently begun identifying non-secure websites. People naturally prefer to be online with secure websites.

  • CLOUDLINUX SERVERS - CloudLinux servers permit your website to be served to your visitors at up to 20 times the speed of other servers. Your website files are backed up 'in the cloud' with multiple remote options. This means near instant recovery if data should ever be lost.

  • Premium PLUS Hosting

    (under $20/mth)

  • EVEN MORE SPACE - We provide 5G of space on this plan. Since most websites are only 10 to 50megs, you'll never run out of space.

  • OUR OWN SHARED IP ADDRESS - We share space on a server with our own IP address, not one shared with strangers who might get the IP blacklisted. Rest assured your website will be fast, reliable and secure in our shared server space. We know who our customers are, and 90% of the websites are ones we manage.

  • FREE LET'S ENCRYPT SECURE SITE - Your website will have the https:// prefix, meaning it will be encrypted and secure. Some web browsers have recently begun identifying non-secure websites. People naturally prefer to be online with secure websites.

  • CLOUDLINUX SERVERS - CloudLinux servers permit your website to be served to your visitors at up to 20 times the speed of other servers. Your website files are backed up 'in the cloud' with multiple remote options. This means near instant recovery if data should ever be lost.

  • ADD MORE WEBSITES AND EMAIL ACCOUNTS - You'll be using your own Cpanel interface, enabling you to do everything from adding more websites, adding and managing email accounts, viewing website visitor statistics, and much more. We are still available to do some of this for you if you are not comfortable doing technical tasks.

  • YOUR OWN NAMESERVERS - When someone searches your domain, they usually see nameservers such as NS1.WEBBERMAN.CA, but with this plan, the domain shown is yours, not ours. This allows you to maintain a stronger brand awareness for your customers.

  • ROCKET FAST SPEED - Keep your customers happy with enhanced SSD performance. Our RAID arraywith CacheCade and a robust content delivery network assures the fastest hosting possible.

  • EVEN BETTER RELIABILITY - Our Premium Plus plans offer 99.9% uptime, but in reality, it's closer to 100%. There are very few times when a problem arises, but ir they do, they are resolved within moments, not hours.

  • Both plans are based on pre-paying one year at a time. This is how we can bring such stable and reliable web hosting to our customers.

    FAQS

    Frequently Asked Questions

    What costs will I have with a website?

    There is essentially one upfront cost - the development of the website. The cost depends on the size and complexity of the website. It could be in the hundreds or in the thousands. We will always give an estimate and ask for a deposit to get started. There are also ongoing costs - a small fee for updates to your content, and the yearly domain and web hosting charges. All websites are not created the same way, and not all web hosts are equal. You can spend less with a host that uses an offshore data-center, but are you saving money when they keep going offline? Our data center is located in a major city, and is fast and reliable, costing a little more, but delivering what you need.

    Why don't you use WordPress like everybody else?

    Many people use WordPress and other page-builder software, in order to quickly create webpages without any understanding of code or how html works. It is a fast and easy way to get a website done in a hurry. But it comes with a number of drawbacks which the average person in business knows nothing about. A few serious concerns are security faults, constant update patches, spam, faulty plugins written by hobbyists, coding and design limitations, no support, little customization, poor search results, slow load time and special hosting requirements. Here at Webberman, all website code is professionally authored, never generated, ensuring these problems don't exist.

    With 20 years in the business, are you not just a dinosaur?

    On the contrary, those twenty years have been spent staying on top of current trends and keeping ahead of the game. For example, our websites are professionally encoded with HTML5 and up-to-date CSS and JS code. They are responsive websites that auto-adjust to any screen width, all the while loading fast and being user-friendly. We take professional HTML templates and customize them, often using techniques only an HTML veteran would know. The result is a modern and user-friendly website you can be proud of.

    I have a Facebook page. Why do I need a website?

    Websites come up higher in searches than Facebook pages. More importantly, your website will be seen by many, not just the hundred or so who might find you on Facebook. Your website is all yours, not sharing space with competitor's ads and other distracting information, as Facebook pages all use the standard Facebook template and not a unique design. Also, not everyone uses Facebook, and many local and distant potential customers will never see your Facebook page. If you are trying to reach distant markets, a Facebook page may never be seen. A properly optimized website, on the other hand, will be visible to potential customers both locally and distant. Talk with us today to ask about a website for your business.

    I'm probably selling my business. You'll stop invoicing me, right?

    Just like a cell phone contract, the onus is on YOU to cancel your web hosting service with us. By pre-paying a year at a time, you get the best rates, but there are no refunds for months not used. If we have invoiced you for your yearly renewal and you choose to ignore the invoice because you've sold your business, or perhaps closed it, we will still require that the new invoice be paid in full, once we renew services with the data centre on your behalf. We generally email invoices a month before the renewal date, and it only takes a quick email or phone call to cancel. If we don't hear from you, we'll keep your service going and expect payment, just like your cellphone provider does.

    So what if your sites are hand-authored. What does that even mean?

    All websites are built of code, usually HTML. A hand-authored website is one where the code has been custom created for your specific website. Sadly, most websites today are made of code which has been 'generated' by software. The result is bulky code, causing slower websites with poor search results. By professionally hand-authoring, your website code is sleek and swift, ensuring higher search rankings and faster load time. It also ensures a lot of other beneficial qualities. Think of a hand-painted work of art in a museum compared to a 'paint-by-numbers' picture. With websites, they may both look equally beautiful, but the hand-authored website will also FUNCTION beautifully. All the top website owners know it's worth the small added investment.

    Is it true I need both a mobile and desktop version of my website?

    There was a time when desktops were close to the same size, and all mobile devices were small phones. Yes, at that time developers offered two versions of websites. It was a nuisance because an update had to be added to each version of the website. Today, there are many sizes of screens, phones, tablets, pads, laptops and desktops. Today, we create a 'responsive' website, which means it will respond to whatever size screen it is being viewed on. All of our websites use responsive design, and all pass Google's 'Mobile Friendly' test with flying colors. This also means only having to keep one website updated, not two.

    What is a Parallax Website?

    In addition to being responsive, many of the websites we create use 'Parallax' elements as well. What this means is that some elements will scroll past at a different speed than others. For example, if you scroll up to our reviews, the greenish background may scroll past at a different speed than the text. It depends upon the browser you are using, and whether it is a phone or desktop, etc. The beauty of our designs is that on a device that won't support parallax design, you'll still see everything clearly and won't miss the parallax feature. If you are on a device that will support it, then the extra feature becomes obvious, adding an element of coolness to your website.

    What is SEO?

    SEO, or Search Engine Optimizing, is the practice of attempting to improve a website's ranking in the search engines. Some firms claim they can practically work magic, and by using agressive techniques, they can - for a short time. This is known as 'Black Hat' techniques, where link farms may send you false traffic, or other short term techniques are put into place. True Search Engine Optimizing is done when a website is developed. These 'White Hat' techniques will result in higher rankings over a longer period of time, gradually bringing your website more traffic. We always incorporate 'white hat' techniques when building a website, finding appropriate search words and phrases, and utilizing sentences that may influence buying decisions. We don't charge any extra for providing this as part of our design services.
