EARLY DESKTOP

Early PC

This was the first desktop we programmed. Ken. of Curlbrook , built this machine in Los Angeles in 1976 from a kit of parts produced by a company called Processor Technology - and it still works! This was about five years before IBM coined the phrase 'Personal Computer'.

CURLBROOK WEBSITES

WEBSITE CREATION



Now concentrating on small business sites with "Home"; "About Us" and "Contact Us" as a basic web site but capable of virtually any enhancements you may require. Since the mid 1970s Curlbrook has been programming desk-top computers. The earliest machines ran under an operating system called CP/M. From there to MS-DOS then to Windows, we have remained at the forefront of PC programming. We number some of the biggest international companies among our past clients.

In recent years Curlbrook Websites has concentrated on Internet related software, programs and web sites. Curlbrook Websites is situated in North Herefordshire near the Welsh border and local companies have featured largely in our most recent portfolio. For more advanced sites please have a look at these example pages.

For small companies Curlbrook offers the expertise of many years' experience at a most affordable price. For your website you can use your existing logo and colour scheme or you can commission Curlbrook Websites to create something from scratch. Our graphics design incorporates the latest development software to enable us to design and create eye-catching web pages without running up enormous graphic design bills.

ANNUAL COSTS



For your new website you will need web hosting services. This is a company which has server computers permanently connected to the internet. Renting space with one of these suppliers will cost just under £30 a year. (2016 prices)

You will also need a domain name (e.g. www.yoursite.co.uk). Again, domain names are rented but annual costs can be less than £10 a year (.co.uk for example). Of course, the domain name you want must be available! We take care of researching, advising and setting up both domain names and hosting services.

OWNER MANAGEMENT



Owner management - otherwise known as a 'Content Management System' or simply CMS - can be included in the web page development as an extra for selected pages or sections of pages. This enables you to have, for example, a newsletter or a 'Blog' page which you can update yourself at regular intervals.

SPECIALIST PHOTOGRAPHY



For expert and experienced photography from jewellery items to aerial stills and videos of landscapes, buildings and events Curlbrook Websites has the equipment and expertise to meet your needs at very competitive rates. Please ask for details if you think your site would benefit from high quality photography.

Website Styles

From the simplest website showing just a promotional page to the most advanced on-line ecommerce store.

Small web sites can cost as little as £350 for a basic site (2017). Speciality designs using your own graphics and other design features subject to estimate.

We would be happy to discuss your graphics needs and offer an estimate for design or re-design.

SMARTPHONE WEBSITE VERSIONS

There are now FOUR TIMES as many smartphones and tablets as there are PCs, MACs and laptops put together. Web users searching for information are therefore more likely to be using a 'smart' device. So, it makes sense to have a mobile version of your website as well as the full on-line version.
