Every day, half a million new websites are born.
How will yours stand out from the crowd?
The privately-owned Krenke Gallery in Prague specializes in works by artists associated with the Czech Republic and the former Czechoslovakia, as well as a number of key designers, illustrators and painters originally from Russia. As well as its featured artists, the website accepts requests from potential buyers for artworks from the sale room.
Refugee Resource is a UK charity that aims to relieve distress, improve well-being and facilitate the integration of refugees and asylum seekers in Oxfordshire. We were delighted to assist in the development of their new website based on the Squarespace platform.
Website COMING SOON
Oxford Chamber Music Society (OCMS) is a 125-year-old charitable association which promotes classical music concerts at the historic Holywell Music Room in Oxford, UK. The brief was to update the website to advertise the annual programme of concerts in an attractive way, and to stimulate the growth of the society’s membership.
Sophie Roberts Audio
Sophie Roberts is the award-winning narrator of more than 100 audiobooks, as well as voiceovers for a wide range of businesses. The brief was to construct a brand website which would act as a showreel of her extensive audiobook work, as well as an introduction to her processes and studio.
We are more than happy to take a look at your existing website. We’ll send you a report on its structure, content and design, as well as its loading speed and search engine ranking. The report is free of charge whether you choose to engage our services or not. Please go to ‘Contact’ to email us with your needs.
Hosting and Domains
For a completely new website, you need both an address (or domain name) and a remote computer on which your website will be stored (the host or hosting service). We can help you set up both of these. Your domain name will also include at least one free email address, which we can help you to integrate with your current email inbox.
We can advise on moving a website to a new hosting service or domain. We can also rebuild a website using a different platform (for example, WordPress or Squarespace). If you need to integrate an e-shop, we can add one to your existing platform, or transfer your materials to a bespoke platform like Shopify.
New or old, all websites require regular tuning to keep them up-to-date and working smoothly. This is equally true whether your website has been built by us or someone else. We offer competitive monthly, quarterly or yearly rates to keep your site running without problems.
We take great care to optimize your site so that it performs strongly in search engines. We show all our clients how to use Google Search Console to discover the key search terms their visitors use, and to monitor search ranking performance over time.
Once we have an idea of your website’s purpose and content, we can start building in functional and organizational elements such as menus, forms and call-to-action buttons. Because you may need to update the site yourself, we recommend using WordPress to manage content and media. If you prefer a different CMS, just let us know.
Ease of navigation and an attractive interface are essential for recruiting and retaining new visitors. We recommend themes, color-schemes and fonts appropriate to your brand. Our sites are responsive to varying screen-sizes, including mobiles and tablets. And as an add-on, we can provide logos or logotypes that integrate into your website and email.
Websites are best kept simple. But we can add audio and video files, document downloads, context-based questionnaires, e-commerce shopfronts, live chat, Google maps, Mailchimp (or other newsletter services), filtered directories, and much more. Ask us if there is a tool or tools that you would like to be added.
Security and Privacy
We make sure that your website is properly prepared for the requirements of privacy laws such as GDPR. We will also ensure that it is properly protected with SSL certification (HTTPS) and also recommend a number of ways to guard against hacking or malicious actors.
We encourage you to promote your website via social media, especially LinkedIn, X, Instagram and Facebook. We can show you simple ways to spread the word, and we also offer focused social media content as an add-on service at competitive rates.
My website was old, many features were broken, it looked tired. Alex updated the back end to a current platform, added the features that I had attempted several times but not achieved, and updated the look-and-feel.
He asked the right questions, was patient with my delayed replies, and provided an overall terrific experience with great results.

We worked with Websites Wanted to refresh our site. Alex was quick to respond, full of ideas, and produced bespoke code to make it do exactly what we wanted. Every step was documented and clear, and the final product was perfect. Alex fitted in with our schedule and timescales and really went the extra mile to deliver for us what we wanted and when we needed it.
Philip Thorpe, Head of Client Services, Refugee Resource
I engaged Websites Wanted to create a more professional online presence for my growing audiobook and voiceover business. Alex helped with branding, design and copy, and was always very clear to explain the process to me. I’ve had an amazing response from respected colleagues in my industry, and some genuine leads already from the website. Highly recommended!
Sophie Roberts, Audiobooks and Voiceover
Excellent in every way: creative, imaginative, quick to understand our expectations and respond to questions, wonderfully clear in explanations and technically expert. Among his many considerable strengths are the ability to explain complex ideas with precision, creative flair, and a quiet modesty that inspires confidence and delivers on promises. We recommend Websites Wanted unreservedly.
John Dunston, Chairman, Oxford Chamber Music Society
What I look for when upgrading a site or opening a new one is pretty simple: appearance, navigation and clarity. Alex nails all three and that makes him trustworthy. It’s dark and greasy in the engine-room, but Alex knows his way around, so the site looks shiny and bright topside. I could not recommend his services more sincerely. You’ll like working with him and he’ll keep you out of trouble.
Jim Freeman, Author, Prague
Websites Wanted did a great job. Besides building the site for me, Alex also gave me very valuable input on content and came up with a neat logo. The feedback from colleagues on the design and content has been overwhelmingly positive. Alex was also a pleasure to work with, always replying to emails almost instantly and he repeatedly went the extra mile to answer any questions I had or sort out any issues that arose.
Linda Jayne Turner, Academic Editor, Prague
Websites Wanted was responsible for redesigning our website, adding new content and fixing the SEO. All deadlines were met perfectly, and Alex went above and beyond the call of duty to make sure everything was working well for us. We have seen enquiries increase significantly, and we now have a much clearer and better presence on Google. We would highly recommend him to anyone seeking similar services.
Michael Johnson, Director, Store-It Stamford Ltd
“I highly recommend Alex as a website designer. He was an exceptional communicator, creative, and had much needed problem-solving skills. His patience ensured a smooth and stunning website development experience. A true professional!”
