Sam Jones – Web Developer

Website Design and Development
based in Queenstown, New Zealand.

Whether you’re into the technical side of things, or not,
we’ll talk with you in terms you understand.

Easy to find.
Easy to use.

We build the sites your clients, and Google, will love. Plus you can manage your site content with ease – from your computer, your tablet or your phone.

Great idea?
It can be done.

Have an idea for your website but not sure if it’s difficult, or even possible? Give us a call and we’ll make it happen!

We love happy clients.

All website builds include 2 hours of remittance work with you, after site completion, to ensure that you are happy with the finished product.

Responsive Designs

Magical Device Balance.

In 2018, 52.2 percent of all website traffic worldwide was generated through mobile phones, up from 50.3 percent in the previous year.

It's all about them

Design should be simple yet engaging, navigation clear, and UX intuitive.


Is Responsive enough?

Sometimes your desktop-focused website just isn’t appropriate for the mobile arena. No problem. We can redirect your mobile visitors to a mobile landing page, or another site altogether. Whatever is most appropriate.

Website Design Queenstown - NZ Webtech

Keep it simple

Mobile users are very goal-oriented. They expect to be able to get what they need, immediately, and on their own terms.

We make your message bold and clear, to maximise user interaction.


It has to be quick!

You bet it does. We use blazingly fast hosting, CDNs and intelligent design to keep your website users on your site.

Let us take care of that.
(We don’t just design and build websites.)

Your one-stop web shop.


Need a domain name?
Or just need yours looked after?

We’ll take care of that for you.

Registering, transferring and renewing – you can leave it with us.


Speed and price are important.

We’ll host your site on a great server, with pricing and resources appropriate for your site.

If your needs change, we’ll upgrade or move it for you to something more powerful.


Get sorted with a professional email address.

We’ll set you up to run email addresses @yourdomain.com through Gmail, so you can enjoy the ease-of-use, great spam filtering and lots of space. 


Join our Website Maintenance Plan and we’ll make sure your website stays in tip-top shape.

Optimisation, updates, daily backups and more are all part of the package.

The new Fear Factory site had been live in the wild for a little over a month when they called to say that online bookings had more than doubled. That’s a result! With e-commerce and a couple of fun design features this was a fun site to build for fantastic clients. I’m still too scared to try it.
