Responsive web development

We specialize in custom websites and web tool development, meaning all features and functionalities of your website are coded based on your visions and ideas.

Dynamic Websites

Dynamic means the opposite of static. With the use of database-driven content management, your website can perform an endless number of tasks.
 

E-Commerce Websites

Want to sell your products and services online? Setting up your online store could be much easier and closer than you might think.

Business Web Tools

Your business is as unique as your vision. As such, off-the-net (generic) tools may not exactly nail it. That's where we come in with custom solutions.

Search Engine Optimization

We have a fairly good understanding about how search engines work, namely Google, and can show you some good examples to prove it.

Introducing GO Kit

What the heck is it?

GO Kit, short for GoOnline Kit, is an all-in-one, mobile-friendly, robust, very flexible and Google-optimized website creation tool written in PHP. It is highly configurable and customizable for one or all of the following online presence purposes:

  • Full scale e-commerce shopping cart / online store
  • Online products catalogue without actually selling online
  • Online donation site for fundraising or crowd-funding
  • Dynamic regular website for general business purpose
  • Membership or subscription based content management
  • Blog site for your daily blogging
  • All purpose CMS (content management system)
  • Photo gallery site with fully automated image compressor and processor that allows you to upload your high resolution photos directly from your source such as camera or smart phone
  • Website that offers all of the above all-in-one

It is also worth mentioning that GO Kit is a near zero-dependency tool, meaning it does not depend on any 3rd party software versions, theme or plug-in specifications. In other words, there is no software to expire or become outdated resulting in forced upgrades (well, almost, as web technologies constantly evolve, and the industry-wide shift to new technologies may affect all websites sooner or later and obviously GO Kit will not be immune to it.)

* PHP (recursive acronym for PHP: Hypertext Preprocessor) is a widely-used open source general-purpose scripting language that is especially suited for web development and can be embedded into HTML.

What is it not?

It is not a WordPress. While we like WordPress, over the years as we worked on various different WordPress sites, we regularly faced with numerous challenges and limitations inherent in WordPress’ version differences, plug-ins or theme requirements. GO Kit was developed to address all those limitations of WordPress and offer more.

It is not a download and install-yourself package. We will have to develop your website by initially setting up GO Kit the way you want and configuring it based on your specific needs and requirements. We can also develop any additional unique customizations and features you may want.

"It is a rough road that leads to the heights of greatness."

Lucius Annaeus Seneca

No matter how rough or sketchy your idea about your web project is, we would love to jump over the rocks with you to take a closer look and get crack at it.

Web-based business tools and applications development

Web-based business tools can automate an endless number of processes, error-prone repeat tasks and manual operations, giving you the flexibility of running your business on-the-go.

Feature project

Property Developer & Construction Company Homeowner Care Web Portal

A mobile-friendly, responsive homeowner portal with abilities to file warranty deficiency requests, upload photos, two-way messaging, links to homeowner manuals, maintenance tips and warranty information.

The portal contains 3 groups of logins, each with their own unique set of features and abilities: Login for the Developer, the Builder and the Homeowner.

The Homeowner files requests and communicates with the builder throughout the process.

The Builder handles deficiency requests by forwarding them to sub-contractors and handling general customer service requirements.

The Developer has "report card" abilities to keep the builder accountable and ensure their new homeowner is happy.

The portal also provides various reporting features on sub-trade activities (i.e. electrical deficiencies, mechanical, plumbing, etc.) and all items can be tracked and reported to ensure quality control and accountability to trade companies.

Graphs / Charts for Reporting

Interactive charts by Highcharts

Used by tens of thousands of developers and 61 out of the world's 100 largest companies, Highcharts is the simplest yet most flexible charting API on the market. We develop dynamic data feed layer applications for Highcharts that are easily integrated to your web projects, company databases and exported to various formats. Highcharts is free for non-commercial use.

And here are few examples of how Highcharts can make your data come alive!

Frequently Asked Questions

How much does it cost to have a website developed?

No two projects are identical, thus costs vary. However, regardless of the scope of your website project, the following fixed costs are equally applied to all clients (as of ):

  • Domain Name Registration: It costs approximately $10/year for dot com domains and $12/year for Canadian dot ca domains. We can register your domains at no extra charge for you. You pay only registration fee charged by the ICANN (The Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers) accredited companies that handle domain registrations. Currently, our choice of Domain Name registrar is GoDaddy.com.

  • Website Hosting Service: It starts from $5.49/month for 24 months hosting (total $131.76 for 2 years hosting). We can setup your web hosting account at no extra cost as part of your website designing process. Currently, our choice of Web Hosting Service providers are GoDaddy.com or 1and1.com.

  • Secure Certificate (optional): If you plan on accepting credit card payments online or your website will be collecting any sensitive data about your customers, you will be required to have a Secure Certificate attached to your domain name. Basically, Secure Certificates allow your website to deliver content via an encrypted communication. Basic Secure Certificates cost as low as $39.99/year. We can set it up for you at no extra cost as part of your website designing process.

  • Website Building Cost: To be determined upon discussing the specific details of your web project with you.

What do I need to get started?

Any new website development project requires 2 assets be setup and configured: A domain name and a web hosting account. GoOnline.ca will be happy to assist you with setting these up for free, no strings attached and / or commitment expected from you. Just our way to show that we appreciate you have contacted us.

Can I register multiple domain names?

Yes. All your domains can point to the same website or different websites depending on your requirement. Registering multiple, similar domain names prevent your competitors from registering those similar domains and start diverting your business away from you. For example, if your business name is ABC Company and you have a domain name abccompany.com registered, then why not, if available, to register abccompany.ca domain name as well? This way, no other compeition will be able to register the other alternative domain and possibly cause some confusion among your customers.

How long does it usually take to get my project completed?

It depends largely on the complexity of the new website structure and the amount of content provided by the client. Small and basic projects that don't require extensive programming or complex functionalities can be done in only few days. Whereas fully functional, dynamic, database-driven or e-commerce oriented web interface creation may take up to a month or more. With our robust GO Kit is ready to be deployed, most websites can be up and running in a week or two. We will be able to tell you the accurate timeframe once we learn more about specifics about your web development project.

Do I need to hire a "local" web developer?

Unless face-to-face interaction is vital for you, you do not need to be residing in the same geographical location as your web developer. GoOnline.ca has worked with local, as well as out of state/province, even international clients. Email and/or telephone communications are all it takes to coordinate your website project effectively regardless of your physical location.

Once my new website is developed, do you offer maintenance services afterwards?

Yes. We will be happy to look after your website on a regular basis after it is developed. You can completely outsource your website maintenance tasks to us. For a modest monthly fee or an hourly rate we can do any update/maintenance you may require as you run your business online. Actual fee amount is determined based upon the amount of work involved, thus it varies from customer to customer.

What is GO Kit?

It is the library of various specific solutions from which we can choose, mix and match to setup countless number of different websites and online tools that our clients require. Many of the features included in the GO Kit are a result of our chronicled solutions to address WordPress challenges and problems submitted to us by our clients who used WordPress sites over the years. In layman’s terms, it is nothing more than the list of ingredients required to cook that taste-bud-rewarding meal you might be craving for right at this moment! In a techy lingo, it is a structured compilation of functions, codes and modules that can be sliced and diced anyway we want to meet our clients’ unique requests and business requirements.
