About IRC Direct Website Services

Our History
Ian Colley started IRC Direct Website Services from a back-bedroom in his parents house in early 2010.

Ian grew up around an IT orientated family from an early age.  Ian's mum was heavily involved in the IT industry and worked as a computer analyst for a government firm in Central London.  Ian's older brother always had a keen interest in IT and this naturally spurred Ian's interest in various IT sectors.

At the age of 8, Ian's older brother started messing around with a web programming language called HTML.  Ian was facinated by this language and went on to study this language further and quickly overtook his brothers knowledge and skills.

Ian spent much of his childhood behind a computer and used to play online games, which he quickly became owners of small groups called clans.  He used to put his limited website design knowledge to good use by building websites for his clans so people could have a base point in which to talk.

Over the years Ian's passion and love of the internet grew almost as quick as the internet did.  He delved into more complex languages like PHP, SQL, Javascript and CSS and quickly learn't the hidden ways of the internet and how search engines worked.

Ian went on to go to College at South Essex College and came out with the double-award AVCE in Advanced Computing.  Due to the lack of company experience Ian did not go and work for an IT company but instead chose to join The Royal Navy to gain "real world" experience across the globe.

In The Royal Navy Ian was a weapons engineer and served two major deployments on HMS Cumberland and HMS Campbeltown across the Arabian Gulf including defending Oil platforms off the coast of Iraq (Which earned his a military Iraq military medal) and intercepting pirates of the coast of Somalia and Yeman.

After three years experience Ian decided to leave The Royal Navy in order to settle down with his family in Essex.

In 2010 Ian was working full time in the retail industry.  In his spare time he would be creating basic websites for family and friends.  It was not until about March 2010 that Ian looked at possibly turning his hobby into a business and looked at starting his own website design business.

Ian looked at other local companies and after extensive market research Ian realised that other companies were offering website design services which were template-based for extortionate prices.  After a few duff calls Ian also found their customer service skills were pretty poor and that they failed to explain in English what they were offering.

Ian decided that in order to create a successful business and live his dream of being a successful full-time website designer his business must be based on three core values: High quality bespoke website design, Competitive prices and a jargon free high level of customer care.

After a slow start Ian quickly gained a small portfolio of work.  As word spread of a low-cost website designer in Essex, Ian quickly became in high demand in the Essex area.

Fast forward three years and IRC Direct Website Services is now one of the website design market leaders in Essex.  With a reputation that is built on honesty and value for money, Ian is now a full-time website designer with a small team of select individuals, working from his home in Tilbury, Essex.

In April 2013, Ian's excellence and hard work was rewarded by not one, but two awards at the local Thurrock Business Awards.

Core Values
At IRC Direct Website Services we strive to always work around three core values:
- High quality website design & SEO.
- Competitive prices.
- Customer care that is second to none.

What makes us different from other Essex website designers
We strive to be different and stand out from the crowd.  Many website designers in Essex offer templated or Wordpress website designs.  These designs are always based around a ready-made system and we firmly believe that to acheive the best long term Google rankings a website should be built completely bespoke.

We also make sure that our customer service is jargon free.  When we talk to and explain practises to our customers we ensure that we explain things, slowly, clearly and jargon-free.  We often use easy to understand metaphors to explain our extensive knowledge of website design and the internet.

Unlike some of our competitors we work completely from our home office.  This eliminates overheads like office rental, shop front rental and more.   By keeping our overheads low, we can pass these savings on to our clients.

When hosting websites, we want our service to be reliable.  Unlike some other companies we don't rent small sectors of web space on the cheap.  We have our own managed dedicated server from one of the best server companies in the world.  Our server is hosted in a dedicated server room in Amsterdam, Netherlands which provides amazing, lightning fast website speeds.  We also perform daily backups of all data on the server and the information is rotated around different secure off-site locations for security.  

In the event of a power-outage our server has a backup generator to keep our websites online.  We also have a team that we can contact 24/7, 365 days a year if any unlikely event happened.

We are so sure of our high quality server that we gave it a 99.9% uptime guarantee for our clients.

So if you are looking for a bespoke website design company in the Essex area that you can trust then give us a call today.
