Ozarks Web Design is located about 100 miles SW of St Louis, Missouri. I became interested in website building in the mid 90s and set up my first site around that time teaching myself how to obtain a domain name, acquire hosting, setting up DNS, utilizing cpanel, html, css, dreamweaver, fireworks, photoshop and other skills pertaining to what was once called a webmaster. Working with WordPress and other CMSs over the last several years has required learning the php scripting language to some degree and dealing with SQL databases.
Web Development is one of those services that can be offered at any distance using email, the cloud, testing servers etc. If I had to define a local service area it would include the county I'm in, being Crawford, the adjacent counties two deep and a few other close by areas. Here's a run down for you; and the search engines.
