I needed a new website as the old one was 18 years old and very amateurish. I started doing my own months ago and never got round to finishing it so I looked for a local company to do a website for me. In reality, it would not have mattered where First Ideas were based – the excellent service would have been the same as it was all done electronically. Howard finished the website quickly, was receptive to a few changes that I wanted and completed the work to the cost agreed. They also dealt with hosting etc. – something I was not aware of in any detail. I am more than happy with the service that I received from them, have signed up for the annual maintenance contract and would readily recommend them.

We wouldn’t hesitate to recommend First Ideas and look forward to working with you in the future.

I contacted Howard after a bad experience with a previous web designer, which left me feeling vulnerable. His professional approach and friendly attitude have made working with him a real pleasure right from the start. He has worked on several projects for me to date and with his technical ability and designer flair, the result has always been 1st class. I wouldn’t hesitate, and indeed do, recommend Howard to anyone.
We have been delighted with the professional hosting service we have received from First Ideas. Their prompt and reliably informed response in issues of technical support has been particularly appreciated. We have also been pleased to recommend First Ideas to others.

A few years ago as secretary of an organisation I asked First Ideas to develop and maintain a confidential website. He did a grand job setting it up and keeping it going; always prompt with changes and any problems (mercifully few of those). The Association rests assured that it’s website cannot easily be accessed for dubious purposes and First Ideas has maintained the confidentiality and security as requested. It has enabled us to keep up-to-date those on active service with Association news.

Ongoing support is first class – nothing is too trivial and the response time is excellent. We would have no hesitation in recommending First Ideas to our business associates.

We are delighted with our new website. All of the content of our old site was transferred into the new. The new look is fresh and modern, it is much easier to use than the old one, and we no longer have to grapple with the intricacies of HTML ourselves. It was done quickly too! We would recommend First Ideas to everyone. Thanks.

Howard provided a professional service, a good looking website and down to earth advice… and all at an affordable price.

First Ideas hosting has been extremely easy to use and very quick to set up. It has remained consistently accessible to someone with limited internet knowledge or understanding. The Control Panel is an excellent feature of the package, allowing me to gain access to a wealth of data in order to monitor my website usage, and has enabled me to customise the foundations of my website, at any given time.
