McLaughlin Web Systems

Web design in Halifax since 2020.

Patrick McLaughlin - Owner/Web Developer

I graduated from Dalhousie University in 2020 with a degree in Computer Science. I’ve been designing websites for clients since 2019 and started McLaughlin Web Systems in the spring of 2020. I work one-on-one with my clients to come up with a website solution that works for them. We charge by the job (not an hourly rate) and no job is complete until the client is happy.

In 2021 we tripled our website output from the previous year and we’re on track to do the same this year. Our clients trust us with their websites and we’re happy to deliver outstanding results for a reasonable price. 

Not sure how to get a website started? Don’t hesitate to reach out today, we’re always happy to help!

A web host stores your website on a computer (which runs 24/7). This makes it so that your site is accessable to anyone on the internet at any time.

Thats why we’re here! MWS will handle all of the technical, design and hosting setup for your website. All our client needs to do is provide text/media for the website.

Not sure what needs to go on your site? We will work with you to determine what content you need on your site. MWS can also provide feedback on any copy you provide for your site, esuring the best possible results for SEO.

Generally speaking, yes. We build websites using WordPress, meaning your website will have an admin dashboard where you can make changes to your website. We can offer training on how to use WordPress.

Not feeling confident in your website building skills? Most of our clients keep MWS on retainer if regular updates are required. We offer monthly/yearly update packages to keep your site fresh. Along with updates to your site, these plans include website backups and small changes to site design.
