Websites that Perform

Web Design & Development that Works

At Advent Media, Inc. we take a decidedly personal approach to Website development. Our custom solutions are designed around your needs instead of cramming your stuff into a template. And like our other Video and Presentation services, you deal directly with the people who will craft your site. Whether it's collecting sensitive data, selling your products or simply putting your organization's best foot forward, Advent Media, Inc.'s personal approach can make all the difference.

User Experience (UX)

Web development today is not just about code and pictures. The new buzzword is UX for "User Experience". Advent Media, Inc. approaches all Web design assignments as designing for your users. We first learn who those users are, and then we work to make your information accessible to them in an intuitive, attractive and compelling way. Websites with good UX need very little instruction. People just know what to do and where to go to interact with the site. Let Advent Media, Inc. give your users the experience they need!

What's Involved in Web Application Development

Contrary to what you may hear, developing a truly custom Website involves much more than a pre-built template and monthly subscription. 

True Web Applications

DNN Web Applications

We don't develop "basic" Websites from a template that just sit there. Our expertise is in building custom Web applications. Whether you need e-commerce, secure data collection or other custom-tailored business solution, Advent Media, Inc. can deliver on-time and on-budget.

Beautiful, Responsive Designs

Responsive Web Designs

Mobile devices have taken over. One survey shows 60% of Web access is done on phones or tablets. "Responsive" Web design makes sure that your content is readable on all screens, large or small. Try it on this site!  Shrink the window width and watch what happens.

Nonlinear Storytelling

Intuitive User Experiences (UX)

Writing copy for UX is completely different from other kinds of prose. Websites are "nonlinear" media expressions so the copy has to make sense if the reader starts at the top, bottom or middle.

At Advent Media, Inc., Web development is all about the process. It's your story we're telling, and our process is aimed at leaving the lasting impression you desire with your site visitors or users. We take time to weigh your needs and desires against Web standards to provide people intuitive ways to interact with the site and take action on the information you have to offer.

"Where a site is hosted is as important as how it's designed."

Web Hosting

At Advent Media, Inc., we believe where a site is hosted is as important as how it's designed, so we host most of our sites on our own dedicated servers. It's another way we assure the Web experience for our clients is as trouble-free as possible.

Placed in World-Class Data Centers

World Class Data Centers

Our own physical servers are located within world-class data centers, equipped with multiple fiber connections and redundant backup power. Our servers are located in the United States.

A Secure, Reliable Server Platform

Secure Hosting Platform

We’ve painstakingly optimized our servers to run DNN powered Web applications at peak performance. We’ve also implemented some of the strongest security measures at the server level that meet and/or exceed many industry standards. Including PCI Compliance.

Server, Site & Content Management

Server, Site, & Content Mangement

While it's easy to make edits in one of our Websites, sometimes you don't have the time. Or maybe you need more intensive changes. For that we provide various levels of ongoing Site and Content Management as part of our retainer-based hosting agreement. Just let us know what needs to be done and we’ll take care of it.
