SCD Information Technology strongly believe your website is an extension of your business. We have had cases where a customers website went down and they got phone calls from their customer's making sure they are still in business. All websites start with thename, next is hosting, build the website, and when the site is done it is time to market it.
Our website process begins with gathering the clients requriements. We next try to match the best techniques on the web to date to handle those requirements. We go to work on the setting up the hosting for development and eventually the live site. Determine the most suitable strategy or technology to accomplish the clients requirements and the determined hosting platform. Set milestones and work with the client to keep them in the development of the website. Once the site is ready to go live we make sure to set any analytics and SEO to meter the sites draw. Announce the site in multiple Social Media outlets and send email marketing to inform a targeted audience.

A SSL is a requirement when processing credit cards or sending sensitive information such as passwords.
