Websites need to look their best across a range of devices, from mobiles to desktops. A website created with responsive design is crucial to keeping your business looking relevant.


A dated website can give a negative impression of your company. We use cutting edge designs and coding techniques in our websites to keep our customers one step ahead.

"Pete was great to work with when designing our website. He listened to our ideas and requirements and produced the clear interesting website we wanted. Where we had little knowledge in websites, he took the time to explain things through. He was also easy to get hold of with any questions and gave us updates when it was in construction. I would definitely recommend him to others."

Paignton Osteopaths

Lynette Taylor and Clare Reed of Paignton Osteopaths had an existing successful business which they wanted to promote with a website and new logo. They were open to the design of the site and had a rough concept for a logo. After settling on new designs, we got to work and put together a logo and professional website to really showcase the company.

“When I needed a website to promote my new book, 'A Little Black dragon Lives Here' I knew that Peter, with his many years of working with computers, combined with his flair for design, would help me achieve what I was looking for. We worked closely together and Peter showed me how the design would work in different screen formats such as mobile phone, tablet and desk top. I am delighted with the result.”

What makes a website?

Understanding the workings of a website can seem daunting at first but it is quite straightforward once you know how. The following three things are needed to get a basic website up and running. We can provide all or some of the following to suit your requirements. As with anything, extras can be added to this.

1. Domain

The domain is the website address, such as You will need to make sure that your domain is available to buy before you settle on one. A domain is purchased and renewed annually for a small charge.

2. Hosting

Web hosting is the term to describe where your website lives online. Websites need to be hosted on a web server which is always switched on and connected to the internet so that it is always ready to be viewed. Large data centers offer web servers for hosting and charge on a monthly or annual basis.

3. Website creation

The website will need to be designed to your needs and then written by designers with skills in current web languages. At Thompson Websites there will be a one off charge for this service which will be agreed with you once a project specification has been finalised.
