Ross and the TTWD team do a great job with website design, SEO, and ongoing maintenance of a professional website. My firm has a 5+ year working relationship with TTWD and have been extremely satisfied with their work, responsiveness, and overall customer service. I highly recommend Ross and the TTWD team!

I've dealt with quite a few web designers. Ross & the crew at Tree Top Web Design are, quite simply, as good as it gets. For our conservation non-profit, discovering their swift, responsive and always tasteful service has been a lot like winning the lottery. We look forward to many, many years with Tree Top.

For this year’s Firecracker 10K/5K/1K, we asked Ross from Tree Top Web Design to completely redesign our website. The results were spectacular. The website is elegant, easy to navigate and jumps out at the reader, encouraging active participation and feedback. After Ross’s redesign, the site is a joy to access. It includes videos and pictures of this year’s (and previous year’s) races in a wonderfully integrated whole. And, best of all, this year’s race set an all time record for participation and revenues. The website redesign was a primary reason for the new record. THANKS ROSS!

As a business owner, my goal was to find someone to create a web site that was contemporary, easy to use and attractive. I wanted to add intuitive features that would allow my customers to easily find us and learn about our services. Tree Top Web Design has accomplished that objective in spades and I’m very pleased with the result. We’re already receiving compliments about the look of our new site.

Ross and Tree Top Web Design are great partners in our internet business. His company is quick and responsive. Ross keeps my company advised and current about our online needs so we don't have to worry about it. We have several websites and Ross and his team keep all the balls in the air very well. I can strongly recommend Ross and Tree Top Web Design.

Tree Top Web Design is the best! They continue to exceed our expectations and have proven our customers enjoy reading our special offers from the Santa Cruz Travel, Inc. website. I highly recommend Tree Top Web Design to all business owners!

Can't say enough great stuff about Ross and TTWD. We've worked together for years after TTWD built the first website for my wife's jewelry business. He's very responsive to requests and always open to feedback. I think among the many outstanding qualities of TTWD (e.g., masters of web design with super creative use of imagery and layout) their deep operational understanding of business processes allows them to design web solutions that truly add value, not just a pretty pictures, to a company's presence.

We are excited to announce our new Active Security Monitoring Program! This 3 pronged program is a new complimentary service we are providing to all of our Santa Cruz web design clients and consists of the following website security layers:

Website Uptime Monitoring

We have partnered with Pingdom to actively monitor the uptime of your website and other related hosting services. Your website is “pinged” every 5 minutes (does not affect website analytics), and if there is a problem with accessing your server, we are notified immediately and will take the appropriate actions in order to resolve the issue.

Active Website File Security Monitoring

We have also partnered with to actively monitor and log any changes to your website’s core files. Files are scanned multiple times per day for changes, and if a change is detected we are notified immediately and will take the appropriate actions in order to resolve any potential issues.

Website Security Update Notifications

Just like with computers, occasionally security threats are identified that must be patched in order to maintain the highest level of protection. The third part of our new Active Security Monitoring Program addresses this issue. When a new critical security issue has been identified you will be notified via email immediately. Once the security notification has been delivered, please take one of the following actions:

  1. Simply “reply” to the email and we will address the security issue right away
  2. Reply to the email letting us know you wish to fix the issue yourself, no additional actions will be taken on our end

If we do not receive a response from you within 48 hours we will proceed with the security update in an effort to keep your website secure and your investment safe. Security patches typically take approximately one hour and include a full before and after backup of your files and database(s).

All of our Santa Cruz web design clients are automatically enrolled in this complimentary website security program. We look forward to helping keep your website safe and secure.
