My name is Phil Nauta.

Since 2005, I’ve been building new websites (and upgrading old websites) for small businesses and solopreneurs who want to make the world better.

My favorite projects are ones where I get to create something uniquely beautiful while still optimizing for site performance and functionality (I see a lot of websites that look nice but are slow to load and poorly structured under the hood).

I work mostly with WordPress because it is so flexible, able to grow with your business as it evolves (e.g. with WordPress, I’ve built e-commerce websites in WordPress that do 6 figures a year, online courses that support hundreds of students at a time, and simple 3-page websites for people providing a service).

Recent Projects

Smiling Gardener

This is my own site where I run a 12-month online course on how to grow your own organic, nutrient-dense food, along with an e-commerce store selling organic fertilizers to gardeners. It's one of my most meaningful projects ever, helping people around the world.


Mayana Cacao

“I just re-read my original requests and you did all of them beyond what I imagined. The site is faster, easier to navigate, and more attactive than ever.”
-Maria, Founder

I moved this site from Shopify and simplified it on the front-end and also on the back-end to make it easier for the client to use.


Students Helping Students

“The site is amazing. Thank you for all of your great work.“
-Bill, Founder

I built a website application to help this non-profit increase donations and volunteering.


Gardener's Pantry

"As he also runs his own online business, Phil is up to date on current trends and site requirements. My new web presence offers better customer service, is much more efficient, and also has increased security. Customers noticed and sent positive feedback. And business is up! I thought Phil's rates are absolutely fair. I am very lucky to retain him for ongoing tech support."
-Christina, Owner


Mahaya Forest Hill

“I am consistently impressed with your ability to provide value. The profit increase for practitioners was $40,000 this year. Our website is seeing a DOUBLING of traffic and our new newsletter strategy has been hugely successful with a 6-fold increase in click-rates.”
-Chris, Owner



PhilI decided many years ago that the best way for me to wake up excited to start work each morning is to do great work for a fair price, and that decision has been a good one - my mornings are quite pleasant.

I've built sites for $1,000 and $50,000 and everywhere in between.

Most of them are in the $2,500-$7,500 range.

For updating old sites, it's usually less, but it depends on many factors.

So how much will your website cost?

To figure that out, I need to ask you some questions. Any of these will get through directly to me:

P.S. I know some people don't want to reach out because they're not sure they're ready or they don't want to waste my time, but please, don't be shy. I'd love to hear about what you're up to. If we work together, that's great, and if not, we'll make the connection and who knows where that will lead? So please, say hello!
