Custom Website Design

We build highly customizable websites.

DST has been building websites for more than 23 years. We have been refining our own custom content management system (CMS) by adding new features to accommodate the ever-changing modern website. This system, based on open-source code, allows us to build responsive custom websites with integrated Search Engine Optimization (SEO). If you can dream it, we can build it.

We can build you a customized WordPress website. We leverage highly-rated WordPress themes and plugins to bring you the very best WordPress has to offer. We have the ability to build hybrid websites with custom functionality integrated into a WordPress website. Both platforms allow us to build the website you need.

Website Security

Server Security is a High Priority

As website security attacks become more sophisticated, DST has invested significant resources to keep your website safe!

DST deploys two firewalls for every site. One at the server level (ConfigServer Security & Firewall) and another cloud-based firewall through Sucuri. Our firewalls provide a 256 bit Security Certificate; Website Application Firewall (WAF); Continuous Malware & Hack Scanning – we scan your site every 6 hours; Brand Reputation & Blacklist Monitoring; Continuous Virtual Patching /Hardening; Advanced DDoS Mitigation; Layer 7 DDoS Protection.

DST also utilizes Mozilla’s Observatory security scan test.

Mozilla, developer of the web browser Firefox, has built an online scanner that can check if web servers have the best security settings in place. Mozilla’s Observatory scans for a wide range of web security mechanisms. Those include cookie security flags, Cross-Origin Resource Sharing (CORS), Content Security Policy (CSP), HTTP Public Key Pinning, HTTP Strict Transport Security (HSTS), redirections, subresource integrity, X-Frame-Options, X-Content-Type-Options, X-XSS-Protection, and more.

DST Servers

DST operates a Virtual Private Server (VPS) at Inmotion Hosting’s East Coast server farm. Our server is restricted to DST client’s websites and runs the latest LAMP stack software. We provide video hosting through Vimeo for videos embedded on a client’s website.

Website Audits - We conduct weekly audits to evaluate your site's health. We look for issues that will affect your website's SEO ranking, broken links, missing images, 404 errors and more.

Website Backups - Every website on DST's server is backed-up every day to offsite Amazon Web Servers (AWS). In the event that something goes wrong with your site, we can restore it in a matter of minutes.

Website Monitored 24/7 - Your website is monitored 24 hours a day, seven days a week. We are alerted immediately by text message and email if your website's uptime is interrupted.

Digital Marketing

DST offers a wide range of integrated digital marketing services

DST will create a custom digital marketing strategy to drive people to your website

Digital marketing channels have grown exponentially over the past several years. Unlike traditional marketing, digital marketing is a continuously changing dynamic process.

While search engine optimization (SEO) and Social Media are probably the most recognizable examples of digital marketing, there are a host of options to consider. Combinations of search engine optimization (SEO), search engine marketing (SEM), content backlink programs, content automation,  e-commerce marketing, social media marketing, direct email marketing, display advertising and video search can be effective tools in your marketing strategy. DST has more than 15 years of experience creating multi-channel digital marketing campaigns.


Search Engine Optimization & Marketing

Search engine optimization is essential to a successful website. With over one billion websites on the World Wide Web, it becomes more challenging for potential customers to find your website. Google controls about 87% of all search engine traffic and they spell out what you need to do to rank for a specific topic on their search engine. Targeted keyword phrases, advanced schema tagging, page load speed, and quality writing are just a few of these requirements.

SEO is fluid. One day you are on page one, and the next day you are not. We continuously monitor our client’s SEO rankings against their competitors and adjust their SEO strategy in real-time. We also audit our client’s websites weekly to ensure they don’t get penalized for outdated code or SEO tactics.

While search engine optimization is essential, it also takes time to see results. SEM includes paid search listings which helps jumpstart website traffic. DST has the expertise to guide you through the many options, which include pay per click campaigns, online display advertising, retargeting, and video search advertising.

Email Campaign Integration

Permission marketing is a powerful tool in your digital marketing toolbox. Your customers have said yes, send me your marketing offers. They are already on board. Email campaigns are one of the best examples of permission marketing. Whether you need to automate email responses for actions taken on your website or running online contests to get more likes on your Facebook page, we have the experience to design a robust permission marketing plan for your company.

DST Testimonials

DST acts as my website design and digital marketing department. David Samuelson and I go back a long way and have built many websites together. David is easy to work with and great at making sure nothing falls between the cracks. He understands the SEO process and is good at building sites that get indexed favorably by Google.

When we start a new project, we develop a plan of action right up front, established time frames, and proceeded to hit those milestones. It is rare for DST to miss a deadline. When David says something will take two weeks to complete, it is done in two weeks. Also, if there is an issue with a project, there is never any finger-pointing or ducking responsibility. If there’s a problem, it gets fixed.

You will not find many people in the website business as knowledgeable and willing to go the extra mile as David. DST is highly competent and yet still affordable. I recommend him highly.

Pinpointe Marketing
Client Since 1998

"DST has been great to work with over the past 23 years! In that time we've built six websites together. DST even created a custom online sales tool for us, we call it the Metrobrick Blend Generator – our clients can use it to mix and re-mix their own blends of bricks and mortars to get an idea of what the finished product will look like. They love it! One of our core values as a company is innovation and we definitely see that come to life through our partnership with DST. They also manage our Google Adwords budget for us and we trust those precious ad dollars are in good hands!"

Ron Williamson, Marketing Services Director
Metropolitan Ceramics
Client Since 1998

“As an event venue on a college campus, we have a lot going on! Four email lists, two websites, multiple social media accounts. Students, staff, and the surrounding community all need to have communications tailored to them. DST handled it all and made the process so easy! We were thrilled to see our facebook page explode from 1,800 likes to almost 16,000 through contesting, ads and custom content. This 20+ year partnership has been wonderful.”
