Primary School Sites

At Cloud Design Box, we understand that primary budgets can be limited which means having a unique coded website becomes too expensive. For these schools, we can setup a basic site with a ready-to-use template to meet all DfE requirements.

Content Editor Services

It can be time consuming to update websites with new content or train staff internally to edit the site. Cloud Design Box offer an optional content editor service so that you save time. Just email the content to our web team and they will update the website within 24 hours.

Web Development


Cloud Design Box partner with some of the largest web hosting companies to provide UK based hosting and back-up solutions. This means our web hosting solutions are cost effective and reliable.

SSL Certificates and Domain Names

Cloud Design Box recommend using an SSL certificate to encrypt HTTPS traffic. This makes it harder for malicious users to intercept sensitive data such as usernames, passwords and password protected data. It also improves search engine rankings. We can provide competitive quotes for single domain and wildcard SSL certificates through our trusted partners.

Azure Hosted Web Applications

Cloud Design Box specialise in Microsoft cloud services. We can provide optimised web applications hosted on a usage pay structure. Azure sites can be easily scaled up to meet large demand and are housed in resilient backed up Microsoft data centres.

Applications could be as simple as a website or as complex as a fully customised CMS booking system.
