Lots of people focus on getting a website build for the cheapest possible price. There is plenty of competition who will always go lower. They tend to churn out cookie cutter sites that all look very similar. There is no time for support with such low margins

What you are aiming for should be more than just a website. For many people, your website is the first thing they see of your business. What they see forms their perceptions.

80% of Australian businesses have a website. You need to stand out from the crowd.

Static sites are making a comeback. People are starting to see advantages such as speed and security.

Jekyll is a simple, blog-aware, static site generator that is distributed under an open source license. Once installed and setup it means there is no need to worry about security updates for your site.

Popular CMS’s like WordPress and Drupal are often attacked by hackers. WordPress in particular has been subject to a number of attacks. There are usually patches made available quickly to plug up the hole. WordPress has made minor updates to its core automatic to help users keep up to date. Most WordPress sites use 3rd party plugins to extend functionality, so it is important to keep them up to date too.

Jekyll solves that issue by stripping away all that. It takes the engine off the web server. All the work on your computer. The only files that live on the server are the html and supporting CSS and media files.

Jekyll takes your source files and generates a whole static website. That site is then uploaded to the web server. It is fast and there is nothing to hack.
