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. It 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. In 2006 I started taking on private jobs for local businesses and charities.

Around 2010 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 learning it inside out, and in 2012 I released my first theme into the WordPress repository. It was downloaded more than 30,000 times and had a near-perfect user rating. Now, most of my time is spent building, maintaining, and training on WordPress. I never stop learning.

Where we are now – built on collaboration

Hut Six is the culmination of years of work and experience, but I never stop learning or trying to find new ways to improve what we offer. In 2017 we became a Nominet member, a JISC approved registrar of academic and government domain names, and vastly improved the hosting service by moving to new servers in a London data centre.

We also started collaborating with an excellent local graphic designer, 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, like I am, 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 Air force messages, which were then passed on to Hut 3 for intelligence to work on.

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

More about Jo

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.

Jo has been looking after my website for a couple of years now. She has just completed another refresh of the site for me, tidying up a few pages and installed a fantastic new booking system that has made a huge improvement to the functionality of the site. I’m really pleased with the result, and the website looks great. I can highly recommend Jo for all your website needs.
