Invest in your digital future

A unique and professional online presence is as crucial for startups and small businesses as it is for large companies. A web presence is a company's online business card and a central point for product information and communication. So it’s vital for any business to have its own website.
Budget limitations can be a barrier to getting a great site, but the experts at IONOS will build you a professional website on a small budget.
Start small and think big with a highly scalable website that grows with your business. Whether you've launched your own startup or you've got a small or medium-sized company, the IONOS web design service gives you room to expand online.

Web design for startups

FAQ – Frequently Asked Questions

Before the IONOS design service team can start the custom web design for your small business, we will ask you for some basic information. This includes information about which industry your company operates in and how many pages you want your website to include.

Together we will then define the framework for web development. As soon as all the important points have been clarified, our web designers will create a website based on one of our modern design templates, which are available for a wide range of industries so that they perfectly complement your project. And thanks to the implementation of responsive web design, your online presence will look perfect on tablets, smartphones and PCs alike.

Yes, because SEO and professional web design are intertwined. Our web design services also take this into account. Search engine optimisation (SEO) is one of the most important success factors on the internet and is essential for everyone who wants their company to be found on the net. This is all the more true for companies that want to build up an online reputation and generate sales. That's why we rely on the appropriate technical setup for web design and web development for our customers, but this doesn’t just apply to web design for entrepreneurs and startups.

A search engine friendly framework for your content and products makes it easier for search engines like Google to catalogue your digital content and make it findable for users. So if you neglect to make your URLs, sitemaps, etc. search engine friendly, you are throwing away a lot of potential. We make sure that your new website is ideally set up in this respect.

However, the basic technical framework we offer is only one aspect of holistic SEO. We also recommend that your website is search engine optimised so that it is ranked as highly as possible by Google and other search engines. And that it leads potential customers to your products and services. We would be more than happy to help you achieve this as well – with the IONOS rankingCoach, for example.
