With such a wide variety of design agencies, some are very expensive, as they deal with top end clients and only really work on very large projects, and some very affordable, as they deal with basic website design. Selecting someone is not easy. There are lots of companies offering cheap website design; however a cheap website does not make it a good website. Sometimes paying a little more for a great design will pay dividends. It is always good to look around, to look at different companies and look at their previous projects, to make sure you like their designs, then to compare their website design prices with other agencies that you like the look of. Your website is an investment (your shop window so to speak) and does need to be carefully planned as opposed to rushed into.
York is the county town of Yorkshire, famous for its Roman and Viking heritage, Clifford’s Tower, the Jorvik Viking Centre and its fine city walls. It was originally founded by the Romans (the Ninth Legion) in 71AD, and was known to them as Eboracum, capital for the area in the north ‘Britannia Inferior’. They build a wooden fort on the banks of the River Ouse, which was later replaced by a stone mott & bailey castle, on the site of the Norman Clifford’s Tower, which was the keep of the castle. In 866 Viking raiders had been attacking the Kingdom of Northumbria, and worked their way up the River Ouse to establish Jorvik as a trading post. In 1068 it rebelled against Norman rule, but the rebellion was quickly put down, evidenced by the building of the castle with Clifford’s Tower seen today. In 1080 the Minster was built by Archbishop Thomas. Skipping forward to the Tudor period in 1640, Guy Fawkes was born in the city (famous for attempting to blow up parliament), and it was the site of many of the civil war battles, of which Prince Rupert was called to help with a detachment of 15,000 men. In more recent centuries, it featured strongly in the growth of the rail industry and much manufacturing brought prosperity to the city.
