About Me

Rob Shelvey

I have over 15 years experience developing web sites. I have worked for one of the largest multinational corporations in the world, but now concentrate on running my own small UK based company and doing freelance work. I specialise in consulting and managing projects related to PCI Compliance, WCAG Compliance and web security.

I have a wide range of IT skills having worked for over 20 years in support, engineering, and as an IT architect and a web developer. This experience enables me to work quickly and develop robust web sites that simply work well, and look great. I specialise in developing ASP.NET database driven websites. I am extremely reliable and honest, and will always keep working on the site until you are completely happy.


Avoid WordPress

No To Wordpress WordPress and other free "off the shelf" CMS solutions are often not the best choice for business web sites. Whilst these platforms may be great as a personal blog site they have a number of down sides for use as a business web platform...

  • Hackers target WordPress, as any vulnerabilities found can be exploited on millions of other sites.
  • Updates need to be installed regularly, this is an administrative overhead requiring re-testing and possible remedial work.
  • It has limited support as the framework is built by the 'community'. If a component breaks, you may not get help fixing it, forcing you to find an alternative.
  • Website speed and SEO are not optimal due to the bloated code, loading many functions that you never utilise.


Custom CMS

My websites include an optional custom content management system (CMS). This has secure administrative pages allowing you to manage and update the content of your website, using bespoke tools tailored to your requirements.

These custom management pages are designed to be really easy to use, saving you the time and hassle of managing a full content management system. This system is very secure & robust so you need not worry about it breaking. For more details on this please contact me.
