About Digital Essence Web Design

Who we are

Based in Innerleithen in the Scottish Borders, Digital Essence is a Web Design & Hosting company that works closely with our clients to help them grow their business.

Our small size means we can be directly involved in your project and gain a full understanding of your business and requirements. Our clients range from the locally based Innerleithen Music Festival to Kailzie Garden restaurant in Peebles.

We specialise in web site design and development and have quickly grown to become the leading website design agency in Innerleithen.

What we do

We design and build high quality, modern looking, responsive websites for businesses in and around Innerleithen in the Scottish Borders.

All our websites are designed and developed using WordPress, the hugely popular & full-featured Content Management System so not only can you take control and edit your web site yourself, you know it’s built on a highly stable and professional back end.

We host all our customers web sites on our own SSD VPS ensuring fast loading web sites, rock solid performance, daily backups and many more features. If you host with us, you know that your web site is in safe hands.
