Getting your website online, and keeping it there!

Website Hosting

Black Owl offers top end hosting that is perfect for your next website project. With a range of flexible service options and professional hosting support, what are you waiting for?

Included with every hosting package is our flagship My Black Owl control panel. This enables you to quickly and easily manage your hosting any time. You can create and delete email accounts, change files and folders, modify mail forwarders, and more.

Black Owl works closely with hand-picked partners to ensure that servers have high uptime, speed, security, and performance. We know end users won’t use slow websites, and therefore a driving factor in our hosting platform. With use of the latest web technologies such as auto-scaling your next project is bound to be a success.

Not yet online, but want to be? Great!

Website Development

Black Owl develops our websites using the open-source Content Management System (CMS), WordPress. By using this platform, we can facilitate frequent system updates containing performance improvements and critical security patches. If you choose to self-maintain your website, you’ll also have access to a self-administration system with a powerful yet simple interface.

Black Owl works differently than other website design companies. We remove lengthy development times, inconsistent designs and large costs by building your website on ‘themes’. These themes offer highly polished code, full responsive capabilities, industry standard graphics, and beautiful animations at a much lower cost. By working in this way, we can leave you to focus on your ever-growing ‘to do’ list!
