About Hut Six Digital

Dedicated to digital

So much has changed since we first started back in 2006, but one thing has remained constant – a commitment to learning and improving.

Where I started

I started building websites when I was 14, in an age of table layouts and 56k modems. Coding began as a hobby, but then I started working as a freelancer for a local agency and as a front-end developer for a software house. By 2006 I was also taking on private jobs, and in 2010 I was so busy that I decided to make the leap and turn it into a full-time business.

Before long I found I was getting so many calls from people wanting WordPress websites that I decided to make it my specialism. I dedicated a great deal of time to learning it inside out, creating themes for the WP repository and producing my own plugins. Now, most of my time is spent building, maintaining, and training on WordPress. I never stop learning.

Growth and collaboration

One of the most exciting things about working in web development is that it’s constantly changing and there’s always something new to explore. In 2017 Hut Six became a Nominet member, a JISC approved registrar and vastly improved the hosting service by moving to new servers in a London data centre.

I also began collaborating with an excellent local graphic designer with over 20 years commercial experience, and together we provide agency level websites without the agency price tag. Of course, I still get my hands dirty with design-work on many sites.

Hut 6

The original Hut 6

For anyone who is interested, Hut 6 was a section of the Government Code and Cypher School (GC&CS) at Bletchley Park. During WW2 it housed a team tasked with decoding German Army and Airforce messages, which were then passed on to Hut 3 for intelligence to work on.

I was visiting Bletchley Park in early 2018, whilst on the search for a new business name. I have a degree in history, as well as a particular interest in the World Wars, so it gave me a kick to include a little historical reference.

You can find out more about Bletchley Park’s role in the Second World War at www.bletchleypark.org.uk

Lastly, in case you’re interested…

In my free time I’m into football, running, writing, photography, and tinkering with musical instruments. I’m the Secretary of Launton Ladies Football Club and co-founded a music review website called MTTM, which supports women who want to get into music journalism. I also adopt bunnies. You can view some of my photos on Flickr.


What our customers say:

I would highly recommend Hut Six Digital for your website implementation. Jo has been fantastic to work with and has exceptional knowledge in her field. She is friendly, reliable and professional, which has resulted in our fantastic new website launch. Her training was clear and concise, and I know she will be on the end of the phone or email should I need her for a little refresh. She has enabled us to take full control of our new website, which was something other companies have been unable to offer. Excellent value for money too!

Christina Canning (SMS Alarms Ltd, Thatcham)

Jo has been personable and efficient in setting up my website. She did a great job of understanding what I wanted and providing guidance from her wealth of experience. She has explained things in a non-technical way and has been very responsive, patient and flexible in working with me. In short, Jo is great value for money and easy to work with.

Vanessa Rhone (Venus Works, Oxford)

Excellent, efficient service from Jo. Highly recommend.

Xan Rice (Journalist, Oxford)

I am not exactly a technophobe but due to previous experiences of pressing buttons that I have no business pressing I have shied away from doing thing to update or improve my site. I have called on Jo Cox’s expertise several times and she is always quick, efficient and gets you back on track whilst also calming you down. I can honestly say that there is no one else I would call on in an emergency to sort out problems with my website. I have never had a bad experience with Jo’s services or with Jo as the service provider.

Lisa Bentley (Writer, Liverpool)

Jo has been amazing. Through 1-2-1 training sessions she has helped me to make significant improvements to my website functionality. This has not only been cost effective but it also has empowered me to use the skills that I have gained to edit my website myself in the future. She has simplified what I thought would be tricky tasks. I will definitely continue to work with her in the future and I couldn’t recommend her highly enough.

Felicity Wood (Yoga Instructor, Bicester)

Jo took my simple brief outline of what I wanted and turned it into everything I wanted and more. Jo was very professional, efficient and she was patient and understanding with the fact that I was not knowledgeable about building websites or what’s involved. By the end of it Jo had given me and my team a training session around how to manage the website. I would highly recommend her!

Sharon Mulholland (Sandcastle Mortgages, Kidlington)

Jo was completely fantastic! I’d been struggling to make a WordPress blog design work and was completely stumped. I made an enquiry to Jo about some help, and she replied within 24 hours. It was easy to agree on a price for the things that needed to be done, and she had fixed everything within 48 hours of the original enquiry. I had thought my problem was too small for someone to help with it, but I was pleasantly surprised that Jo was happy to sort out the small issues with my site for an extremely reasonable fee. Throughout the process, Jo was efficient, effective and stayed in regular communication. She answered all of my questions, even the really idiotic ones, and nothing was too much trouble. The entire experience was great and I would recommend her in a heartbeat to anyone who needs help with a website project – big or small. She is, in short, superb at what she does.

Imogen Goold (Blogger, Oxfordshire)

I wish I had found Jo earlier. We wanted to progress from making simple text edits to getting more out of the CMS. After a very enjoyable training session, we can now design new pages and keep the website organised. Excellent.
