About

 

Hi, I’m Jason Lasky and I have been living in Byron Shire since 2007. My work is part of my lifestyle. I feel very fortunate and grateful for my family, friends, social and business community. I love working with people and organisations, to help them realise their aspirations.

I began designing websites as an extension to freelance desktop publishing in the late 90's. The 90's was an exciting time to introduce people to the digital age and the World Wide Web. I gathered a listing of my clients and pulled together some useful information to create a local directory. A decade later, I returned to creating websites, when I moved to Byron in 2007 and discovered WordPress in 2008.

It's a pleasure to be part of the evolution of OpenSource and more recently the online social web. I feel great satisfaction making a difference to real people and a WordPress website makes it so easy.

Who do I generally design websites for?

Since 2008, I've designed and supported WordPress websites for all sorts of aspirations.

  • Teachers & Facilitators
  • Professionals & Consultants
  • Musicians, Workshops & Events
  • Small Businesses, Clinics & Shops
  • Life Drawing, Painters & Photographers
  • Community Associations, Projects & Organizations.

What I do - Web Design Process

The benefits OpenSource

  • How can the cost of a quality website start at $599, while some web designers start at $2,000?
  • OpenSource & WordPress Community create the amazing code and share it.
  • If you have a sizable budget, consider professional content: copy, photos, video, graphics & SEO.
  • With OpenSource & WordPress, you retain control, never to be locked down or out by a designer.

The benefits WordPress

  • I prefer WordPress, one of the most popular and easy to use web site platforms available.
  • WordPress was initially used for blogs but has evolved in to a Content Management System.
  • WordPress allows you to easily edit your own website content, media and page menus.
  • As the website owner you provide the content and can add more pages and edit existing ones.
  • WordPress has thousands of beautiful themes to browse and useful plug-ins to choose from.
  • I provide a growing list of recommended WordPress plugins and a short list of default plugins.
  • I recommend a list of Free & Premium Themes to find something you like.

WordPress Web Hosting

  • Some Australian Web Hosting providers are still over charging compared to international providers.
  • Since 2001, I've chosen ICDSoft Web Hosting, with server centres in Europe, North America and Asia.
  • I recommend ICDSoft hosting for reliability, speedy quality support and customer satisfaction.

Your Local Web Designer & Support

I love living and working in Byron Bay for it’s pristine natural surf beaches, rivers and forests, an abundance of creativity and community. Byron is a small collection of friendly towns with cafes, culture, arts, dance, healing, music and fresh food farmers markets. I am a volunteer for several local community organizations and have a passion for a thriving local coastal lifestyle and sustainable economy.

I install Wordfence on every website I create and manage (if they don't have security setup) and recommend upgrading to premium.
Is it worth it? It's like using protection and insurance, do something protective and pay something up front to avoid serious consequences, downtime and costs later.
Besides realtime firewall rule updates, which is like an antivirus program protecting your site, the automated realtime blacklist is another feature of premium that will probably save your website from getting hacked, defaced and blacklisted by Google one day. Yes keeping all software up to date and offsite backups will help prevent vulnerabilities and allow for a restore and Google will delist you eventually but why not do more to prevent a hack in the first place?
I'm offering Wordfence premium discount and also bundled discounts for software maintenance to my clients. See my website for details.Staying Ahead of WordPress Attackers with the Real-Time IP Blacklist
