About Sarah Hayes and 443i

Sarah Hayes has been designing and building websites since 1997 and specalising in Joomla website design, development, support and training, since the birth of Joomla in 2005 (and Mambo before that).

I live and breathe Joomla. This is my only and full-time work. My client's and their websites are my priority.

Sarah Hayes | 443i Web Design & Development is a web design company based in Sittingbourne, Kent.  We have clients all over the United Kingdom, as well as Europe and around the world, including Australia.

I have chosen to specialise in Joomla. Developing custom Joomla websites and custom Joomla templates, which includes converting your PSD or screenshots, into Joomla template and converting XHTML & CSS, into Joomla templates.

I provide my clients with Joomla development servies, Joomla support, ongoing development, Joomla hosting and Joomla training. I started designing and developing websites in 1997, which means I am one of the longest establish web designers in the world. I have extensive experience designing and developing, not only Joomla websites, but also static XHTML websites, and various e-commerce, PHP solutions and completely bespoke projects. From initial discovery phase, design concept, through to installation and build, custom template and custom theme design, integration, customisation, training and on going hosting and support. Sarah Hayes is your one stop, for everything Joomla.

I particularly enjoy designing and developing custom bespoke Joomla websites and templates, that meet your exact requirements, and the challenges that go with building bespoke Joomla solutions. The sites I design are sharp, clean lined, pixel perfect and uncluttered. Easy to use, for both you and your site visitors. Each website I design, is custom built to your requirements.

About Sarah Hayes & 443i

All of my custom Joomla templates and Joomla websites are fully responsive and mobile friendly, using a mobile first design process. This means your website will look just a great on a mobile phone or tablet, as it does on a desktop. This is vitally important, because not only can it make a difference to your position in search engine search results, but more and more people are using mobile phones and tablets, as their main device for browsing the internet. If you don't get your mobile design right, you risk losing both potential customers, and search engine positioning.

With my bespoke Joomla templates, you have the option to have a hand coded template, coded by myself, which includes Bootstrap 5, which is part of Joomla 4. Because my hand coded Joomla templates are specific to your needs, they are usually much light in code and faster than off the shelf commercial templates.

We are recommended and listed by YOOtheme as an expert in building websites with YOOtheme Pro

Transparent Pricing

When I'm trying to source a product, or service, I like to be able visit a website and see exactly what the company or person has done and how much the product or service is going to cost me. If I can't see prices, I wonder if they will make it up, depending on how much they think they can get away with charging. With that in mind, and so we don't waste each others time, I have tried to be as open and transparent as possible, in both the services that I provide and the costs involved. I see no point in showing cheap pricing, only to find ways to increase the price later. I have my charges and you have your budget. I have provided a Joomla Website Price Calculator, so you can see how much your website will cost.

If your requirements fall outside of the Price Calculators, please complete the Web Development Questionairre or email your website project specification to This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.

There are things that can increase the cost of your development. The first is Pro and Bespoke templates that incorporate a higher level of extension integration, template overrides and styling. The second is organisations needing a high level of meetings, market research, UX IU, SEO and marketing.

Another area that can increase or reduce cost, depending on your choice, is styling and layout of individual pages. The home page, contact us page, category pages and other important key landing pages are always included, but there are often many more pages of content, especially if you have a large website, that would benefit from a designers eye and technical skill. Some clients, who are on a limited budget, may prefer me to just create a few layout templates, for them to reuse, whereas clients with a larger budget, prefer me to work on all their content, or large parts of it.

Once you have looked through my services, portfolio and pricing and are happy that I can provide the services you need within, your budget,  I will be happy to provide you with a detailed, written, quotation and proposal. This clearly shows all the costs involved, including any ongoing costs such as hosting and annual subscription fees for extensions etc., which may be required if your site includes commercial components.

I pride myself on putting my best into each project. I work with you and aim to build a long-term working relationship. During the 25 plus years, that I have been designing and building websites, I have seen a lot of sites and online businesses come and go. I have a wealth of experience, that I am happy to share with you and advise and guide you in the right direction. It might not always be what you want to hear, but if I think something won't work, I think you're wasting your time and money, or it could be done a better way, I will tell you.


I am usually booked 4-6 weeks ahead, for full custom Joomla website development projects and 2-3 weeks ahead for custom template work and training, so please keep this in mind when planning your project. Historically certain times of the year tend to be busier or quieter than others. January to April/May is historically very busy, whereas July to September is usually quiet.
