We build websites using a CMS (Content Management System) called WordPress, this system is used by over 35% of websites worldwide, including some very big commercial names. The websites we build are currently using Astra, Blocksy and OceanWP themes. Two of the most popular, customisable and adaptable themes available today. We also use Elementor as our go to page builder.

‘https’ (Hyper Text Transfer Protocol Secure) also known as Secure Socket Layer or SSL for short, is the standard for transacting safely online. If the website is using https, you will see a closed padlock in the address bar of your browser (look at the top left of this page).  Most hosting accounts come complete with HTTPS and SSL and EssanDee strongly recommend using this on all their websites. Infact some search engines may not show non SSL or https results.

‘https’ also known as Secure Socket Layer, is the acceped standard for all websites whether they are ecommerce or otherwise. Search engines will always look for https sites as a priority when searching. Some search engines may not display non SSL or https results.

No, a few years ago you would have to pay for https, however, these days, organisations like Lets Encrypt supply the SSL for free and it’s usually included as part your hosting account.

We build websites for fun (sad I know).In most cases, if the website is going to take up to 1 week to build (may not include eCommerce), we will charge nothing for the website design and build.

Hosting can take up to 48 hours to become active, if you are tranferring your hosting account this may additionally take up to a week.

Once we have access to the hosting account and agreed a design, a non eCommerce website (1 to 4 pages) would take less than 1 day to build

Yes we will place carefully selected advertisements on some pages. This is how we can build and design your site free, a sample advertisement can be seen below. Please follow the link on the advertisement if you are looking for a hosting account.

Yes it will take customers away temporarily, however,  in our experience and because we ensure the advertisements will not compete, we make sure the advertisements will open in a new page, so your website will remain open for the customer to go straight back to.

GDPR (We don’t build non-GDPR compliant websites, however, the terms and conditions, privacy and cookie policies are the owners responsibility and as such you will need to think about compiling these. We will of course help you to compile these documents if required.

We build SEO (Search Engine Optimised) friendly websites as standard and use All In One SEO to do this. Essandee will only promote your website through their own web pages. We recommend that you actively promote your website through social media, leaflets, business cards etc.

Yes any social media account can be linked directly to your website. This can be either to show your social media posts or, you can post to all of your social media accounts at the same time from your website.

This will depend on your hosting agreement with your service provider, most hosting accounts have email available to configure to any name you want.
