“Karon from Astrantium is hugely knowledgable and highly approachable. I attended one of her free talks and she then sent me a detailed report on the current web presence of my small pottery painting business. It showed that there was a lot of work to do! With her encouragement and the information gained from the talk I felt confident to take my first steps in building an online profile for my business.
If, like me, you are looking for someone to demystify the world of search engines, key words, analytics and all things website then I would definitely call on Astrantium.”
“Issues raised were clearly explained and Karon backs up her points using an evidental system. Concise and logical she boils down all the things you might do but won’t get round to into a couple of things you can do today to start improving your web presence”

This is the hosting you need. Friendlier, easier web hosting and web design plans with managed WordPress installations and a choice of single site or multisite set up. Email & phone support. Search engine optimisation.
I started Astrantium Hosting because clients were saying that finding good hosting for their websites was just too stressful. Recent changes in technology had resulted in their established websites looking outdated. Forthcoming changes to the way Google ranks sites and GDPR mean that many website need an overhaul.
People are increasingly using smartphones which don’t display traditional sidebar layouts very well. Jumping from page to page isn’t good on a smartphone either – the advice use to be ‘don’t make them scroll.’ The advice now should be ‘don’t make them jump.’
It’s also worth noting that Google now gives a higher score to secure sites. If your site address starts http:// instead of https:// you should consider an update. And if you or your developer haven’t kept up with updates or patches to the underlying content management system you may find you are losing some functionality.
So you’ve got a website and changes have become necessary but there doesn’t seem to be anything on offer between an expensive redesign by a developer or a scary do-it-yourself approach. That’s where Astrantium comes in. We offer friendly hosting and lots of help to migrate your existing content or start a completely new site. Let’s begin with a chat over Skype (or the telephone) to talk about your website and what we can do to help you.
Here’s a list of features you might want to achieve…
- All the key information moved to the front page
- A fluid layout that works on phones, tablets and laptops
- Easier content management and more control
- SSL certification
- Search Engine Optimisation
- eCommerce, ebooks or digital downloads
- Members-only areas
