About Us

Ian Kirk and Joanne Shurvell set up helpfulwebhosting to help individuals or small businesses who require professional looking websites but who don’t have the large budgets required for website design, programming and maintenance. We recommend WordPress as the website platform for our customers and we make it easy to get started with a WordPress powered site. Sam Maher joined us last year as “Head of Stuff” to help customers with their content requirements.

Helpfulwebhosting’s customers include creative professionals to small and larger businesses.

Ian has an extensive background in technology, the arts, branding and design.

Joanne, a former communications director at the Institute of Contemporary Arts, is also the co-director of PayneShurvell, a contemporary art gallery in Shoreditch, London.

Sam Maher, our Head of Stuff, is a copywriter and researcher with a background in website management and design.
