Gatt Design, based in Brierley Hill, West Midlands, specialises in web design, ecommerce solutions and website development for small and medium enterprises (SMEs), and also offer domain name registration and domain hosting facilities. Whether you are looking to reach new customers on the web or redevelop an existing website, Gatt Design will help you achieve these goals and maximise your online potential.
Below is a list of services provided by Gatt Design:
Back in August 1991, Tim Berners-Lee (the inventor of the World Wide Web) published the world's first website. Berners-Lee was the first person to combine Internet communication with hypertext (which had been around for decades, but limited to browsing information stored on a single computer, such as interactive CD-ROMs). Websites are written in a markup language called HTML, and early versions of HTML were very basic, only giving websites basic structure (headings and paragraphs), and the ability to link using hypertext. This was new and different from existing forms of communication - users could easily navigate to other pages by following hyperlinks from page to page.
As the Web and web design progressed, the markup language changed to become more complex and flexible, giving the ability to add objects like images and tables to a page. Database integration technologies such as server-side scripting and design standards like W3C further changed and enhanced the way the Web is made. As times change websites are changing inside (scripts) and out (design) because of the way programs and utilities are created and further developed.
A website that looks good and is built well can transform your business offering and boost your sales potential. All websites that are developed by Gatt Design are built from scratch (some web design companies only use templates) so you can be sure that you will be getting a totally unique, bespoke, web design solution, and are W3C standards compliant - this ensures that the web design on your website will be compatible with most versions of all popular web browsers such as Microsoft Internet Explorer, Mozilla Firefox, and Apple Safari.
Electronic commerce or ecommerce is a term for any type of business, or commercial transaction, that involves the transfer of information across the Internet. It covers a range of different types of businesses, from consumer based retail sites, through auction or music sites, to business exchanges trading goods and services between corporations. It is currently one of the most important aspects of the Internet to emerge.
Ecommerce allows consumers to electronically exchange goods and services with no barriers of time or distance. It has expanded rapidly over the past five years and is predicted to continue at this rate, or even accelerate. In the near future the boundaries between "conventional" and "electronic" commerce will become increasingly blurred as more and more businesses move sections of their operations onto the Internet.
In the UK, the value of Internet sales to UK households rose fourfold to £21.4 billion between 2002 and 2005 according to the National Office of Statistics and is growing at a phenomenal rate! Ecommerce offers many benefits for businesses of any size. In fact, it gives smaller businesses the opportunity to compete on even footing with their larger competitors. Link popularity spreads easily over the Internet, whether it be from search engine rankings, email recommendations or word of mouth.
For many companies, retailers in particular, the advantages of an ecommerce solution mean a vast and inexpensive opportunity to improve efficiency, service and overall customer satisfaction. An online ordering and payment system means that a company can be open for business 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.
Domain Name Registration
On the Internet, domain names are used as components of website Uniform Resource Locators (URL), e.g. http://www.mywikibiz.com, and electronic mail (email) addresses after the customary '@' separator from the user's name.

Other types of domain name registration may also be available for registration.
