Web Design & Development


Web Design for Business

At BlueStar, our primary focus is on software development but on many occasions bespoke software has to integrate with a website.  For orders, RMAs or many other areas we can seamlessly link everything together to avoid rekeying or importing data.

We will professionally design and develop your new website from start to finish including domain registration, email with anti-spam* and business class web hosting.  We will build the website to meet WC3 web standards and we will optimise it for all major search engines.

If you choose to use the BlueStar content management system (CMS) then you'll be able to add new pages, articles and PDFs without requiring any additional software to be installed. Please see our Content Management Systems pages for details.

We have a wealth of experience developing general business websites but we have also produced sector specific websites:

  • Recruitment specific websites with a job feed and on-line application.
  • Course booking websites with on-line payments.
  • On-line training video websites with on-line payments and video protection.
  • Brochure websites with detailed technical specifications and multiple images.
  • Travel agency website with integrated CRM.
  • Courier website with secure customer area for PODs.
  • Calibration/Metrology websites with secure customer area.
  • Industry/Trade association websites with back-end membership databases.
  • Used vehicle websites with live XML datafeed via Autotrader.

We provide business class hosting based in our Nottingham data centre with regular data back ups, dual provider connectivity, UPS and generators so your website stays running and also runs fast. Our servers have been approved as PCI compliant so we can host on-line card payments.  Our servers are self monitoring and report any problems to us by email so we can quickly resolve any issues.

 * Anti-Spam starts at an extra £10+VAT per month for 5 users.


We will offer support for your website for as long as you host it with us. You can call and talk to someone in our Nottingham office that knows about your website (unlike other providers that offer an email only service with poor response times or are located overseas).
