About Hut Six Digital

We work one-on-one with clients to design and build custom websites, usually in WordPress. We’re not a big agency with account executives and project managers – when you commission us to build a website you’re dealing directly with the person who is actually going to carry out the work.

Jo Cox

How we started – about Jo

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 all my spare time to learn it inside out. Now, most of my time is spent building, maintaining, and training on WordPress. I never stop learning.

Where we are now – built on 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 we became a Nominet member, a JISC approved registrar and vastly improved the hosting service by moving to new servers in a London data centre.

We also began collaborating with an excellent local graphic designer with over 20 years commercial experience, who has taken our custom design-work to another level. Between us, we provide agency level websites, without the agency price tag.

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have a degree in history, as well as a particular interest in the World Wars, so it gave me a kick to include a little historical reference.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

What our customers say:

Jo was completely fantastic! I’d been struggling to make a WordPress blog deisgn 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.
