Web design is a rapidly changing field, both technologies and web-design standards change frequently leaving one with fairly frequent update cycles. In addition to this, any CMS based solution must be updated frequently to ensure that the most recent version. This version will be hardened as much as possible against external attack. If you’ve not updated your CMS solution in some time, I recommend you do so as soon as you can. Even better, I recommend that most small sites use a static content manager such as Hugo CMS or Jeckyl. With this there are far fewer moving parts to look after.
Do we offer web-design services?
Yes, and it can be cheaper than you think. For small sites we generally recommend Hugo CMS, with a UI front end if needed. Always truly mobile ready by default and will include training to ensure you know how to manage it properly going forwards.

It is possible to build your own site, as long as you are quite technical and can understand HTML and CSS, there is no reason not to have a go. Bear in mind this is not a quick process, if you are not used to web development, allow a few weeks to read about CSS, HTML and hosting. Personally, I would recommend a static content management solution and managed webhosting, from any reputable provider. A good starting point for developers that are unfamiliar with web-development is w3 schools.
