About Ardnet Online Limited
Providing Web Design services in Newtownards since 2000
Andrew Kane, Founder of Ardnet Online Solutions first had the idea to start a small web design company specialising in providing solutions to customers in Greater Belfast and North Down while working for a large Belfast based design house back in 1999. Finding that customers with modest budgets were often turned away, Andrew thought that there was definitely a need to provide innovative, cost effective website design for small to medium local businesses.
Ardnet was founded in the spring of 2000, a complete age ago considering the number of innovations in web design since then. For example, no one had broadband connections, most people were using dial up internet to connect, online video just didn’t exist, embedded video services like youtube didn’t come along until much later, and you can just forget about social media!
Back when we started computer screens were smaller, download times much longer and designing for the internet meant that everything had to be as minimal as possible, the loading time of a website was paramount, and we considered if a screen took less than thirty seconds to load then it was doing well.
We have always produced website for the future, making sure that sites we produce will work well years after development.
