About

Cosnetics Web Solutions Ltd has been working with the web since 2001.

We've created many websites and written a diverse range of web applications. We've also learned a lot about our customers along the way. They like the independence of managing their own sites, but they also value the professional back-up and advice provided by our customer support service.

We think that accessible sites make good sense, so we do our very best to follow the guidelines set out by the World Wide Web consortium: all our software delivers sites which are compliant.

We're big enough to deal with any web-based project, but small enough to take pride in what we do.

Most of our clients are small to medium sized businesses, though we do look after the website portal for a major national charity, hosting and maintaining the Retired Greyhound Trust site as well as providing website software and hosting for 20 of the branches.

We also developed and host the billing software for the wireless LAN facility at the Brighton Centre.

By providing fully scalable, user configured web sites, we can help more people make better use of the web.
