Single Page Websites

Single Page websites are websites that have all content contained on a single page, usually the 'index' or 'default' landing page. Single page websites can be very simple, or they can be more complex - depending on how much information you are presenting. They are highly versatile and can contain very minimal content, or several blocks of content organized in #sections.

These websites are a great choice for those who don't need a full website and only require a single page to let visitors know the who, what, when, where, why and how of their business. They can also be used as temporary landing pages while a website is being updated or while new website is being developed.

Single page websites can be designed to suit your needs:

  • One page business card style websites
  • Single page presentation websites
  • Single page multi section websites
  • Temporary landing pages
  • Website maintenance pages
  • Splash pages to direct visitors to other websites





Multi-Page Static Websites

Static websites, which are also known as 'flat pages' or 'stationary pages' are websites built without the use of a content management system (CMS). In order to maintain these websites you'll need to edit the websites code directly meaning basic knowledge of HTML is required less you hire a professional to do the updates for you.

Static websites are best suited to websites that do not require frequent updating or dynamic content (for example, an auto-updating news feed or an online business directory). They normally cost less than an average website built using a content management system (CMS), but may have higher cost for maintenance.

At Thunder Bay Web Design, we develop static websites that work to save time and money. You can expect a static website with a beautiful responsive design, clean standard code and built with web  accessibility in mind. We build in a way that keeps content organized and repetitive information (such as headers and footers) all organized in one place. This means updating will take less time whether you decide to manage the website yourself, or hire a professional like ourselves to do it for you.

Multi-Page static websites that work for you:

  • One page business card style websites
  • Single page presentation websites
  • Single page multi section websites
  • Temporary landing pages
  • Website maintenance pages
  • Splash pages to direct visitors to other websites

Wordpress Websites and Themes

Wordpress is currently one of the most widely known open source content management systems (CMS) used to power websites. It enables end users to view a visual interface of their website's backend that makes it easier and faster to manage and update their website. Wordpress websites are popular as the system's entire source code are version upgrades are free and the system is community based with a massive collection of free (sometimes paid) plugins and themes.

As Wordpress is an open source community project, it means development costs are less than that of an in-house developed content management (such as our own SIMS CMS developed in Thunder Bay). This is because much of the custom development take less time with use of pre-developed modules from the Wordpress community. The system's security and maintenance is also dependant on Wordpress's developers to regularily release patches and version upgrades. Wordpress websites cost more to develop than static websites, as they require extra time for installation, development and training.

At Thunder Bay Web Design we develop custom themes and plugins for Wordpress as well as provide essential support, maintenence and training.

Wordpress websites:

  • Wordpress Blogs
  • Custom Wordpress Themes
  • Custom Wordpress Plugins
  • Local Wordpress Support
  • Backups & Maintenance
