Kodako design websites in Adelaide, South Australia. We are a small team working remotely from our Adelaide and Goolwa studios designing cost effective websites for small business, sole traders, creatives, startups and not for profit organisations. Our professional experience with web design and digital media publishing can be measured over three decades.
Kodako collaborates with businesses in Adelaide to Victor Harbor to design websites and progressive web apps (PWA) that engage with your target markets. Using the latest version of WordPress, featuring the latest drag and drop content management systems (CMS), our website designs will publish content to your blog, your social media channels and your subscribers via email. With no template restrictions, our website and email design services allow for effortless content creation and editing, all without any coding knowledge required. Manage it all from the WordPress Dashboard which powers over 40% of all online websites. Our website design solutions provide an affordable and agile base for businesses to establish, grow and manage their online presence.
Easy Drag And Drop Website Editing
Kodako’s web design process employs drag-and-drop editors to add specific widgets to new pages, blog posts and email designs. Widgets allow for the incorporation of diverse content types, such as AI generated content, slideshows, image galleries, text blocks, videos, buttons, and forms. Each widget has extensive customisation options available, including different media content, colours, Google fonts, bespoke icons, and styles.
Our team regularly updates Kodako plugins with new features and styling options, ensuring that clients have access to the most advanced functionalities including a 2FA login. All our web designs use verified and up-to-date WordPress technologies, and we conduct rigorous testing, reviewing, and updating of our clients’ website plugins. We do this while simultaneously keeping the website current with the latest WordPress and PHP releases that have been deemed stable.

Kodako’s e-commerce websites are efficiently managed from the user-friendly WordPress Dashboard.

Site Kit, from Google displays your site’s (GA4) analytics and allows for an easy-to-understand graphical representation of your site’s traffic sources and dates. A free Google account is required.
For e-commerce sites, we deploy WooCommerce Analytics, which allows for the efficient management of essential aspects of your online business. You can manage orders, stock, reviews, and gain insight into sales using intuitive graphical charts. Additionally, you can view product-level data over specific time ranges, providing a deeper understanding of your business’s performance.
We update our websites with the latest version of WordPress and the plugins they use as they are released. We test first and then deploy verified technologies to provide cost effective solutions that are far cheaper and more agile than template website platforms. We analyse what your online business requires and design a solution using proven WordPress technologies that we use ourselves.
Our websites are optimised to load quickly and be lightweight, allowing for faster loading times and an improved user experience. Additionally, each website we create is kept up to date and can seamlessly integrate with numerous third-party ecommerce, shipping, and marketing platforms, providing a top-tier user experience that meets and exceeds industry standards.

Website And PWA Development
Kodako collaborates with your business to design and generate initial SEO content. Page titles, copy, headers, call to action panels, metadata, product descriptions, video and photography are all areas that require design. Our team carefully combines your website assets with you to create a website that looks good and easy to use on all devices while being on brand. We ensure it ranks well, engaging with your target audience while promoting your brand, products and services.
We initially design the website build on Kodako servers and when you are happy with the site design we migrate it to your own SiteGround hosting account and build your PWA. This gives you complete control over both website and hosting administration with Kodako as your collaborator. As a collaborator, Kodako has access to your website’s hosting tools, backups, staging etc, and allows us to get priority support from SiteGround on your behalf.
Getting Started Is Easy
Getting started with a Kodako website is a simple three step process.
- First you need to register a domain name.
- Second, choose a website hosting plan. Select StartUp, GrowBig or GoGeek Plan
- Third, login to your SiteGround account and invite Kodako to become your website collaborator.
Using SiteGround, our domain registrar and web hosting affiliate, you can do this in minutes. Kodako can then install WordPress and start building your new website.
You can use a different registrar for your domain name registration such as Webcentral. Your domain name and hosting are two seperate accounts.
If you have an ABN, we recommend you register a domain name with a .com.au or the new .au extension. Otherwise, if you don’t have an ABN, you can register a domain with an extension such as .com, .net, .biz or many others.
You can upgrade to faster cloud hosting plans or downgrade your hosting plan at anytime by logging into your SiteGround account. When complete or if you want to migrate an existing WordPress site, please contact us.
