WELCOME TO CURLBROOK WEBSITES
Now concentrating on small business sites with "Home"; "About Us" and "Contact Us" as a basic web site but capable of any enhancements you may require. Since the mid 1970s Curlbrook has been programming desk-top computers. The earliest machines ran under an operating system called CP/M. From there to MS-DOS then to Windows we have remained at the forefront of PC programming. We number some of the biggest international companies among our past clients: for example:
- Philips Computers - PGA Volvo Golf Tournament statistical analysis and media feeds.
- Seiko Timing - Barcelona Olympics, Equestrian and water events timing and recording.
- International Paints - mainframe integration for international labelling.
In recent years Curlbrook Websites has concentrated on Internet related software, programs and web sites. Curlbrook Websites is situated in North Herefordshire near the Welsh border and local companies have featured largely in our most recent portfolio.
For small companies Curlbrook offers the expertise of many years' experience at a most affordable price. For your website you can use your existing logo and colour scheme or you can commission Curlbrook Websites to create something from scratch. Our graphics design incorporates the latest development software to enable us to design and create eye-catching web pages without running up enormous graphic design bills.
See our 'Links' page for some examples of websites ranging from the most basic to complex integrated on-line ecommerce stores.
To keep development costs to a minimum Curlbrook does not employ full-time staff but, instead, will work with freelance developers who are sub-contracted when additional programming effort is required for larger websites.

For your new website you will need web hosting services. This is a company which has server computers permanently connected to the internet. Renting space with one of these suppliers will cost just under £30 a year. (2016 prices)
You will also need a domain name (e.g. www.yoursite.co.uk). Again, domain names are rented but annual costs can be as little as around £7 a year (.co.uk for example). Of course, the domain name you want must be available! We take care of researching, advising and setting up both domain names and hosting services..OWNER MANAGEMENT
Owner management of some features can be offered as an extra. This enables you to have, for example, a newsletter which you can update yourself at regular intervals, thus avoiding any additional developer costs.
