Web Design

At ideaPort we believe in clean, functional, modern graphic design that is fully accessible to all visitors, including those with special needs. To this end, we encourage our clients to allow us to utilize Web 2.0 (and beyond) and responsive design principles to develop accessible Web sites that are mobile and tablet-friendly.




Web Programming

We believe in content and site functionality before layout, which means that it's important to know exactly what a web site will say and do before designing the aesthetic interface. We are able to create sites quickly and with more functionality than many traditional approaches by utilizing Agile programming process, Ruby on Rails, javascript, and Ajax. 





Website Maintenance

We feel it is important that web sites remain fresh with relevant content. To achieve this, it is often imperative for the customer to be able to update her own content without having to work through us. Our design requirements ensure that you have the necessary tools to change text and images on your site when you need and want to do so. For more complicated maintenance tasks, we provide customer support to meet your needs.






Database Management

Database-driven Web sites are becoming the norm. ideaPort utilizes databases to create economical, fast and flexible Web sites. We have expertise in MySQL.







Web Hosting

Finding a reliable host can be difficult. Many hosts promise excellent up-time, but fail to deliver. We host our sites and our customer's sites on our own servers in well-protected data centers with huge bandwidth capabilities. Hosting with us is not a requirement. We will gladly work with your host. We do prefer to host your site because we can optimize and configure your Web site more easily on our servers.
