About Web 4U

A Web Site from Web 4U will curtail mailings, catalogs, and other printed material expenses into a faster, more efficient, more effective, more dynamic form of advertising. Most advertising expenses are outdated quickly and are expensive to modify and redistribute. The website we build 4U can change dynamically as often as you like, for very little — you'll have the latest information on-line in real time.

Are you confused about where to start or what things cost? Let us help you understand how the process works—FREE of charge (that's called customer service). Everyone wants to know what things cost. We can give you a quick answer once we know what kind of work you're looking to have done. Here's a good analogy. Q: How much does a vehicle cost? A: What kind of vehicle? Brand? Make? Model? We can go on and on here. The answer (you'll see this a lot) is: It depends.

A Little About Daren

Hi, my name is Daren Barry. I'm an entrepreneur at heart. I was a Landscape Contractor for 16 years and have owned a handful of other businesses in the past. I got tired of dealing with web developers that didn't understand what I (as a business owner) needed (like honesty, punctuality, communication, pros and cons of certain platforms, etc...). How do I differentiate myself? Plain and simple. NO other developer (that I know of) can bring 25 years of being a successful business owner to the table. I can! I have a 4 year degree from Fresno State in Business (Logistics). I can design, build, maintain, and host (web hosting is different from email hosting) a site from scratch, or I can simply update your existing site. We build everything from scratch, the right way. We do not use WordPress. Yes, WordPress is an option for some people. But like in landscaping, you can always tell a "do it yourself home owner job" vs. a professionally done project.

My web design experience actually started as a landscape contractor. I paid a company to design and build a site. My experience was horrible and I ended up canceling the contract (paying a cancellation fee) and hired another developer. In 2010 the second developer recommended the use of flash (which seemed like a good idea to a guy that didn't know better). Little did I know... it wouldn't render on iPhones, iPads, or the iPod Touch. I would NEVER build a site using flash because of this. It upset me that a developer would do this (use Flash) without telling me the pros and cons of the platform. Today there are many other ways to display pictures in sliders... no need for flash!

They built a decent looking site. Par for the course, my experience with the second company was so horrible that I decided to go back to school full time and studied HTML 5, CSS 3, PHP, and JavaScript learned how to build web sites and custom web applications. There seemed to be a disconnect between business owners and those that design / build / maintain sites—Until Now! Whether you need a simple 5 page site (home, about us, services/portfolio, faq, contact us) with or without hosting or a full blown 100+ page dynamically driven data base custom web application, no job is too big or too small!
