Got a question? Maybe you’ll find the answer below. If you cant please feel free to contact us.
I currently have no website what do I need to do?
No problem, we can set this all up for you. We can register your domain e.g (myschoolwebsite.ie) and setup your hosting.
I have a website but it's ScoilNet.ie website.
We cannot work with your existing website and would need to setup your website in a new location (server) with a new domain name. This usually isnt a big issue and it would be included in our price. Scoilnet can then redirect all traffic to your new website.
Will my site look good on Mobile Phones etc?
Yes, your site will be specifically designed to be ‘Responsive’ meaning that look great on all devices such as Mobile Phones, Tablets and of course Desktops and Laptops.
Will my website be secure?
We will host your website on a highly secure server located in a state of the art €1.1 billion Google Data Centre in the Netherlands. As well as been secure the facility is powered by their on site wind turbine and solar panel farm.
Your site will also have a built in Firewall constantly monitoring all activities. If there are issues we will be contacted by your site and we will act accordingly.
Who will add content to the site once it's built?
You will have full access to the site where you can add content such as News and Pages. We can also setup a number of users with different levels of access. For example we can setup Editors who can add and edit content freely but they cannot access sensitive areas of the website. We can also setup ‘Authors’ who can add content also but this content will not be shown on the site unless it’s approved by an ‘Editor’. The ‘Administrator’ has full system rights and can add more users and change site settings.
Will I be trained on how to use the site.
We offer free hands on training where we visit the school and sit down and show you the ropes. Unfortunately we currently only offer this within the county of Tipperary. We have a number of tutorial videos online on how to add content and edit content and optimise images etc. These videos are screen casts of us working on a site with the same system as yours. We find that this method of showing people the ropes works best as you can revert back to a particular video at any time.
If for some reason there is a particular aspect of your site you are having dificulty with, we will greate a more in-depth video for you.

His customer service is second to none, giving great guidance and advice and his response time to a query is always very speedy. Will has not only created a very visually appealing website that is easy to navigate as a user but it is also very user friendly, which ensures staff members are able to update regularly.

Stokane National School
Our school website is designed and maintained by Will at Primarysites.ie and we would wholeheartedly recommend his services.
Will has designed a website that truly reflects us as a school, it is bright and vibrant, easy to navigate and a wonderful source of information for our students and their families, our staff and for anyone who would like to see what day to day life is like in our school.
He was supportive, patient and helpful all the way through the design process and incorporated our full Wishlist of requests into the final layout. Having someone who understands what a primary school website needs to include was invaluable to us at the design stage. He continues to make any necessary changes or additions to our site in an efficient and effective manner, including adding some Christmas Effects for the month of December!
We are delighted with the finished product and would highly recommend Will and Primarysites.ie.

'When looking for a new school website to promote our school, we needed someone with vision and creativity. Luckily, Will at FlexiWeb was just the man for the job. What impressed us most about FlexiWeb was the project management and design of the website. Things were done on time and Will was always there to help us through the process. Our Website is now modern and easy to use and shows our school in the best light. The school and more importantly the pupils are very proud of it. We would definitely recommend Primary Sites for anyone looking to promote and improve their school'
Gaelscoil Durlas - Labhaoise Ní Chuinneagáin Principal
Dhearaigh agus thóg Flexiweb ár suíomh idirlín scoile. Bhí sé iontach oibriú le Will a bhí eolach agus gairmiúil i rith an tionscnaimh. Bhí comhairle den scoth aige agus ó shin i leith thar a bheith cabhrach ó thaobh aon athnuachan a bhí ag teastáil uainn. Bhí sé ar fáil i gcónaí má bhí fadhb ar bith le réiteach...tacaíocht den scoth! D'éist sé go cúramach agus mhínigh sé gach rud go soiléir. Chabhraigh an suíomh go mór linn nuacht na scoile a scaipeadh i measc an phobail! Mholfainn go mór é!
