ZipFish Web Design and Hosting, South Wales
Web design, maintenance and support


Zipfish is a family-run web design company based in South Wales, offering a completely personal and supportive service to its customers, from initial discussion through design and build to ongoing site maintenance and support.

Web design

Using the open source content management system Joomla!, we build fully-featured websites that are easily updated by anyone with average word-processing skills.

Each ZipFish site is custom-built to a unique design, not based on a standard template that others can use. We explain the process and your options in plain English, and provide documentation to help you make the most of your site. Software maintenance - vital to site security and to keep up with the rapidly-changing technology of the internet - is included as part of the package.


Support and maintenance

The Zipfish service includes: unique theme design; CMS installation and configuration; extension installation and configuration; documentation and support; advice on extension and upgrades; maintenance services; security monitoring.

We offer a full range of design and support services, so you can fulfil all your website needs in one place. Contact us now for a free, informal discussion of your needs, with no obligation and no pressure to buy.
