Website Development

Our full-service web development package is the most efficient and cost-effective way to develop, host, and maintain your website. This package includes:

hosting on your own virtual private server. Your website or WordPress installation doesn’t share this VPS space with any other company or individual. If you want to update your own website, you can safely log in and do this.

creation, reconstruction, or remodeling of your website. You can supply as much or as little of the creative ideas, graphics, and content as you wish. You are allowed to see the site in progress. Your current website can stay active while we work on your new site. If we are making you a new website, a custom “splash page” can be shown to the public while your new site is being developed.

maintenance of your website. This is very important for both a great customer experience and cybersecurity. Regular updates of everything, from the VPS the software running your site, are what keeps the hackers at bay. We also monitor your backup process to make sure it’s happening regularly.

Other Services by CMIT Solutions:

managed it services
Managed IT services are the daily, weekly, and monthly tasks and planning that must be done to keep a computer network operating efficiently and securely.

network services and security
A good computer network transports data from employee to employee, and it also sends and receives information between your company and the outside world. It can allow your employees to collaborate, but it also can also be configured to restrict the flow of information between different parts of your company. A good network helps you do the most amount of work in the least amount of time.

vitrual cio/cto services
When it comes to IT, most CEOs don’t know what they don’t know. In order to create a comprehensive and effective plan for business growth, it takes expertise in both management and technology. The CMIT Solutions virtual CIO/CTO service helps you to budget, schedule, and execute your short- and long-term plans.
