We are a local company, and all of our Web Developers are from Las Vegas. It makes a big difference when you get to meet & shake the hand of the person that will be building your website for you.
When developing a website for Las Vegas, you have to design for the current needs of Sin City customers. There are certain design and architectural elements that are common within our region. It’s important to be aware of them so you can deliver a website that meets the needs of your Las Vegas website visitors, and – more importantly – converts them into customers.
An increasing percentage of Las Vegas website visitors are now using mobile devices (iPads, tablets, phones, etc.). This means that you need web development that also takes into account these users. If you choose to go this route (we highly recommend it), then we design a website that not only looks good on laptops and desktops, but also on mobile devices. Having a mobile-friendly site can help with: internet marketing Las Vegas campaigns; therefore we highly recommend going responsive.
At some point, you may need to sell products and/or services via your website. We assist in setting up a product/service listing system, along with shopping cart & checkout system. We also configure the payment gateway so your customers can checkout and pay you.
We feel that you should be in control of your website content. This keeps costs down for you, and also makes it easy to adjust your website’s content whenever you want to. To accomplish this, we run your website on a CMS (Content Management System) that allows you to login and quickly add or modify your webpages. We also provide the option to manage your content for you, but we don’t recommend this if you’re on a budget.
Web Development Las Vegas: Most of the magic of a website is hidden in the back-end. There is a lot of hidden web development that you don’t see when you visit the homepage of your favorite website. Our in-house Las Vegas web developers utilize the PHP programming language to add back-end functionality to your website. Additionally, we develop custom plugins and modules in PHP as well to meet your business needs.
Websites must be installed on a modern web server in order for the public to see them. We provide fully-managed Las Vegas web hosting for our Las Vegas clients. In-house we run on a Linux server cluster that is running a dual-setup of Apache & NGINX. Apache is used for a small portion of requests that require stability; alternatively NGINX is used when we need to deliver content on a webpage very quickly. We’ve found that the combination of these two web servers together delivers the best performance.
Las Vegas websites are becoming more media-heavy – this means more photos & video. Additionally, a larger majority of web surfers in Las Vegas are now using their mobile devices. This means lower bandwidth, which – in turn – leads to slower webpage loads. To get around this, we use several technologies. Firstly, we cache webpages. Secondly, we utilize Amazon Cloudfront to deliver media content via edge servers around the world. We also cache some database requests to ensure speedy queries.
Website security is a huge and ever-growing concern for website owners. Almost every website on the planet has been exposed to a hacking attempt at some point in time. The bigger the website, the bigger a target it is. We monitor hacking and Denial of Service attempts 24-7, and we have a number of security layers in place to minimize any vulnerabilities for the Las Vegas websites running on our system.
