Nate Covington

I build websites that build businesses. 

Every month, my work is seen and used by hundreds of thousands of people.  I am available for hire with building new web sites, and managing existing sites, help with updates, consulting, new features, training, etc…  

I work with directly with business owners to build streamlined, effective web sites.  I also work with advertising agencies and marketing consultants on their clients' sites. 

The large majority of my projects are built using Wordpress, Drupal, and Joomla, although I also support Magento, OSCommerce, and almost any other open-source platform.

Back in 2020, Cloudflare started connecting with the Internet Archive (archive.org) for some sites using its Always Online feature.  In July 2022, cloudflare is announcing that ALL sites will use the Internet Archive, rather than Cloudflare itself hosting the "always online" version.

East Stroudsburg United Methodist Church

Our church website was in need of a refresh, and Nate delivered everything we needed.  He was easy to work with from selecting templates and design elements, to incorporating and updating them and making content edits.  He communicated efficiently with us every step of the way and we are very pleased with the result! - East Stroudsburg United Methodist Church

"We started working with Nate about a year ago when we decided to redesign our company website. We needed someone who could manage the entire project including follow up tech support at a reasonable rate.  There is no one else in the industry as responsive as Nate--I usually hear back from him within hours of sending him an email. Since we have started working with him, our site has never gone down and he's made every change or addition to our site within 24 hours! He's incredibly easy to work with and really knows his stuff!"
