My website was hacked. I want to create a new site from scratch now. My previous site was a wordpress site - WHICH I DO NOT WANT EVER AGAIN. The new website will be between 15-20 pages total. I have all of the content already written out, luckily I saved most of it and edited it prior to the sites attack by malware.
I absolutely DO NOT want any template based or wordpress website Ever again. I want a website made from scratch, emphasis on function, clean look, easy to use, properly codded SEO, tags, page, and site descriptions (which i can provide). I have all of my content and my logo.
The old website is www.dotcomreps.com
I own one of the top Amazon.com Manufacturers Rep Firms in the USA. It is a business to business website. My clients are manufactures of products that are sold directly to Amazon.com. I am an internet retail consultant and sales rep. It was a simple website, I would like the new one to be cleaner and classier. I do not want it to be vulnerable to any security or malware issues.
The timeline for completion of the entire project is 3-4 weeks, or 30 days max.
This is what is important to me:
1) Clean and Easy to use FRONT END with a modern design
2) Search Engine Optimized. Compatible with all of latest standards. I want be easy to find. I was on page 1 for years, as of this week I am not. That has to be fixed.
2) Secure website, not susceptible to malicious attacks
3) Not template based
4) I do not want tons of flash
5) I do not want a design that requires tons of scrolling below the fold.
6) Back end maintenance of management of content

I do have a site backup of my old website from before the crash as a .gz file in case you would like to see that. parts of it are still live, but text only.
