Your bowls club can have an attractive website – designed here at www.bowlsclub.info
1 – A simple site hosted at bowlsclub.info
For clubs that need a web presence, but don’t have the time, skills or inclination to set up and maintain their own domain name and web pages.
A simple low cost website can be designed and hosted here at bowlsclub.info, and updated occasionally by sending the required changes by email. With a simple and memorable web address at the bowlsclub.info domain name – if your club is called ‘Greentown’, your web address can be http://greentown.bowlsclub.info
A ‘fire and forget’ solution that doesn’t require your club to have a website manager!
2 – A responsive, updateable website hosted on your own domain name
In recent years I’ve found that more clubs want to update their own websites regularly. To achieve this I have been creating websites using WordPress, so that designated club members can ‘log in’ to post news items, and update their own information.
WordPress also allows the websites to be ‘responsive’ – meaning that they work well on large PC displays, but will also adapt to the smaller screens of tablets and mobile phones that so many people now use to access the internet. This is an important feature, now that Google pays close attention to whether a website is ‘mobile friendly’.
Although WordPress offers much more flexibility, the set up and running costs are more expensive, and will require setup of your own domain name and web hosting. Cost can vary depending on your requirements, and whether you have an existing website, domain name, or web hosting – please enquire.
