https://whatagreatwebsite.net WOW What a Great Website!
You deserve a great website!

Stern Data Solutions is a part of What A Great Website, talented SEO experts, graphic designers, branding specialists and web copy writers, so we can bring whatever skills are necessary to build you the right site. We will also train you to use your new site and, if you wish, maintain it for you on an ongoing basis. We don’t just slide your website under the door — we stick around to make sure you’re happy with it and it works for you.

Built with Appropriate Technologies

You don’t need special web knowledge update or add content to the sites we build. Editing or creating content is a lot like using Word, so you can manage it on a day to day basis without any knowledge of HTML or website operations. We specialize in a the content management system (CMS) appropriate for your situation, now and in the foreseable future. Our preferred CMS is WordPress.  It powers millions of websites — the current guesstimate is that WordPress runs almost 25% of all websites, with a an over 50% market share among CMS sites.  WordPress sites can function as blogs, classic “brochure” sites, social networking sites, e-commerce or any combination thereof. SternData can build a site that meets your needs now and is flexible enough to work for you tomorrow, too.

We Fix Websites, too

Has your developer disappeared? Does your website have problems or maybe you just need someone to “take a look” and fix up some stuff? Call Steve.

Consulting and Strategy

Small businesses generally cannot afford a Chief Information Officer (CIO) or Chief Technology Officer (CTO). Steve has served in strategic roles, in association management, in the small-to-medium business segment, and in higher education, focusing on Delivering Strategic Technology.

About This Website

This website has been around, in one form or another, since 2002. It started out as an HTML site built with Dreamweaver, then quickly became at WordPress site. At some point, I converted it to Drupal, then in 2014, converted it back to WordPress.

Info about the current site:

Where should you be hosting your site?

If you need your own server and like doing Linux system administration, you’ll love Digital Ocean. On the other hand, most of my clients don’t need anything so elaborate. Basic shared hosting is just fine, and for that I recommend Dreamhost.
