High-Quality, Fast Websites
Five Parts of Website Development
Website Development encompasses all the planning, programming and testing to make sure a website works well for every person who visits. At Websites in a Flash, we specialize in creating high-quality websites for businesses and professionals of all types. When we start development on a new site, we focus on these five parts of the website:
1. Website Speed
One of the most important aspects of a website is how quickly the website loads. This focus is one of the reasons Websites in a Flash is a unique company in today’s web industry. We do not use bloated, pre-built website themes or host on shared servers. Whenever possible, we use custom, hand-coded applications instead of unnecessary plugins.
2. Responsive (Mobile-Friendly) Websites
3. User Experience
User Experience is more than just being mobile friendly. We build our websites to be easy for users of every generation to use. We can push the limits of web design without losing or confusing your visitors.
4. Future Expansion
A website is a big investment for a business. It’s important that any future changes does not require a complete overhaul. We build websites to easily add new features. All of our website designs can be swapped out of a new custom website design with minimal additional programming work.
5. Search Engine Friendly (SEO)
While Search Engines may not be the most important advertising vehicle for some businesses, Google’s approval can make or break how your website performs. We follow the best, white-hat SEO practices to give your website a great starting relationship with Search Engines. Future SEO upgrades are available.
Why Your Website Speed Matters
The 10 Second Website Rule
A website has less than 10 seconds to convince a visitor to stay. If a website takes 15 seconds to load, visitors will leave before they even see the website. Every extra second your website takes to load is another second of your visitors time you waste. Because we get into the nitty-gritty of developing websites, we can keep our websites as small as possible.

What Our Clients Say About Us

"-Bethany B, Co-Owner, Chris James Cellars
I had a great experience with with Ashton and the team at Websites in a Flash. We had an existing website that we wanted to replace with a WordPress site that had similar look and feel, but some updates, too. Websites in a Flash had a first draft up pretty quickly and from there we worked together to polish it off.Throughout the process Websites in a Flash was recommending changes that would help improve our search results on Google. Our old website was limited with most of our item info and events being listed on a POS specific store. One goal of the re-write was to capture all of the info on our own website.We use a POS system specific to wineries that recently released an API to pull items. Websites in a Flash utilized this feature to display everything on our website rather than only showing items on the POS specific store. Since it was a new API, there were some hurdles which Websites in a Flash worked directly with the vendor to overcome.Overall, I am pleased with our new site and the process to get to it. "

Website Programming and Coding
How a website is developed and programmed in the beginning is like building a car: if you don’t follow each step correctly it together right in the first place, it’s going to cost you in the end. It is very important to keep all of your options open. When we develop a website there are many things that we keep in mind. Here are some of the most important:
- It Works: Functionality is the most obvious, and the most important. We double check to make sure everything is working on all major desktop and mobile browsers.
- User Experience: Website developers must always keep the end user in mind. If a website works perfectly but is hard for the average user to understand or figure out, that website will have a hard time getting and retaining customers.
- Load Time:
- Scalability: Scalability means that your website is able to handle growing amounts of traffic easily or with few upgrades. This is especially true if your website is working on viral marketing where at any time you may have a huge influx of visitors.
