The time it takes to make a website can vary widely depending on the complexity and functionality required. A simple website with a few pages and basic features can be created within a few days, while a more complex website with advanced features such as e-commerce, custom design, and integration with third-party services can take several weeks or even months to complete.

Factors that can impact the time it takes to make a website include the design and development process, content creation, testing and quality assurance, and deployment. It's important to work with a skilled web developer who can provide an accurate estimate of the time and effort required based on your specific project requirements.

Webflow uses Amazon Web Services (AWS) hosting for several reasons. Firstly, AWS is a cloud-based hosting service that provides a reliable and scalable infrastructure for websites, which is essential for Webflow's growing user base. AWS also offers a wide range of tools and services that allow Webflow to build and manage websites more efficiently.

Secondly, AWS has a global network of servers that enable Webflow to provide faster load times for websites, no matter where the user is located. This is crucial for ensuring a good user experience, as slow loading times can lead to frustration and higher bounce rates.

Finally, AWS provides high levels of security for websites, with features such as automatic backups and disaster recovery options. This is important for protecting user data and ensuring that websites remain online and accessible in the event of an outage or other issue.

By using AWS hosting, Webflow is able to provide its users with a reliable, scalable, and secure hosting solution that meets the needs of modern websites.


Yes, Pennine websites are typically designed to be responsive and mobile-friendly. With the increasing use of mobile devices to access the internet, it's essential that websites are designed to work well on smaller screens and touch interfaces. Responsive web design is a method of designing websites that can adapt to different screen sizes and resolutions, allowing the website to look and function well on desktops, laptops, tablets, and smartphones.

A responsive website will typically have elements that adjust and reposition themselves depending on the screen size, and may use techniques such as hiding certain elements or changing the layout to better fit the screen. This ensures that users can easily navigate the website and access its content, no matter what device they are using.

In addition to responsive design, modern websites may also use other techniques to enhance their mobile-friendliness, such as optimising images and videos for faster load times, using mobile-friendly fonts and typography, and incorporating touch-friendly controls and gestures.

Ensuring that a website is responsive and mobile-friendly is essential for providing a good user experience and maximising engagement and conversions, especially as more and more people use mobile devices to access the internet.
