Ultrastatix’s core services are the creation, hosting, and maintenance of static websites. Emphasis is on simple but elegant design. Content can be imported from other systems or written from scratch, by you or Ultrastatix. Sites are built from the ground up with an eye to search engine consumption and ranking: their code is streamlined, images and other assets are optimized, and accessibility is assured.
Website design and development
If the purpose of your website is primarily to provide content and a contact form, Ultrastatix can migrate your existing content to a static site for a one-time fee based on the amount and complexity of the content. If you do not currently have a website, Ultrastatix can also help generate content. The design will be a template that is customized to incorporate the colors of your choice as well as your logo. More elaborate custom designs are possible, but would affect price significantly.
Website content is in the form of simple text files organized in folders and stored in your Dropbox account. Edits to the files are immediately reflected on the website—no special login or administrative interface is required. Therefore, once your Dropbox account is synchronized with your computer, you can edit the content of your website by simply modifying these files directly on your desktop.
An Ultrastatix site always has a staging equivalent, which is kind of like a draft site. When you change content, that change is immediately reflected on the staging site. This site is an exact replica of your live site, with the exception of any changes to content that have not yet been transferred to the live site. It is behind a password so that it is only visible to you and anyone to whom you give the password. When you are satisfied with your changes to content, you create a file named “publish” in a special folder in your content and any changes made to the staging site are copied to the live site. Your live site is hosted on a separate, dedicated, highly performant server, which ensures the best possible speed and security.
Ultrastatix can help you plan and generate content. In fact, Ultrastatix loves content. We use static site technology exclusively because it lends itself to a content-centric approach. We can be involved in your content production and maintenance as much or as little as you like. We can generate content based on information you provide, edit and proofread finished content, or remain hands off. Any content work is billed at an hourly rate.
Search engine optimization
Search engine optimization (SEO) is of considerable interest to anyone who wants to boost their website’s traffic, and with good reason. Ultrastatix can help with SEO by significantly improving the site’s performance and code optimization. Beyond that, Ultrastatix will refer you to trusted SEO specialists, who will likely work with us to optimize content, layout, and code for search engine consumption.
