CUSTOM WEBSITE DEVELOPMENT
As the web has matured over the last decade, having a strong, appealing web presence has become more important than ever. That's where we come in.
Once the interface has been squared away, we are more than prepared to give your website the custom functionality your business needs. Unlike a lot of the web development companies that will sell you bloated software right out of the box (think WordPress, Joomla, etc), we have a proprietary framework and content management system, with the expertise to meet your needs for any custom functionality you might require. Blogs, content management, e-commerce - whatever your business needs. Utilizing our extensive background in PHP and MySQL, we're well-prepared to create a powerful website for your business.
MOBILE APP DEVELOPMENT
In today's market, mobile presence is a necessity. The dawn of the app has arrived, and it's only getting bigger. Bring us your ideas for your business, and let us help you make it happen.
When it comes to mobile apps, user experience is key. Understanding the difference between a PC and a touchscreen device is hallmark to creating an app that's intuitive and easy to use. With our experience and creativity, we utilize subtle animations and natural interfaces to make the device disappear into the palm of your hand so your users can do what they're trying to do without the app getting in the way.
Whether it's simply a mobile version of your website or a native Android, iPhone, or iPad app, we can make your concepts as mobile as you are. Whether you simply want to make your website accessible on the go, or you have a hot new app idea, we're well prepared to deliver what you need.
There's a new trend in the industry, and you might have heard of it - cloud computing. More and more often, companies are seeing the benefits of pushing their business applications to "the cloud."
After your website or web application is finished, it needs a place to live. With Stream 9's hosting services, you don't have to find a separate provider. Plus, who better to host your site than the people who built it?
We're different than the cheap "discount" hosting providers out there. We provide business-class service, but at a much lower cost than other similar business-level service providers.
Our servers are fast, reliable, fully managed, and can be scaled quickly when more resources are needed. Each server is monitored both internally and externally from multiple locations across the country, 24/7/365. We perform nightly offsite backups as well, just in case the unthinkable were to happen. If your project requires more power, dedicated options are also available. We can set up load balancing or other custom configurations as well.
Since we don't market our hosting services to the general public, 99% of our customers are also our web development customers. This means higher security since we know who your neighbors are and you don't have to worry that you're sharing server space with people who might be up to no good.
The last few years have brought significant changes in website design, and we haven't missed a beat. Far from the static pages that were prevalent just a few short years ago, the best in web design these days has a strong interactive component.
Search Engine Optimization
It can't be overstated how important your website's page rank is on search engines. As the primary method of most internet users for finding new resources and businesses, a higher rank in search results means more visibility, more visits, and finally more business. So how do you get there?
SEO (Search Engine Optimization) is a delicate process that requires carefully-written HTML, content, search-friendly URLS, and an intimate knowledge of the criteria search engines use to rank your site. It's as much an art form as a science, and knowing some tricks of the trade goes a long way. It doesn't happen overnight, but with diligent monitoring of your site's rank and making the appropriate adjustments, you can expect results.
Another important aspect of maximizing your website's visibility is increasingly social media. We're also capable of integrating social media into your site to expand your site's exposure, including Facebook, Twitter, and more.
