I am Robin Hislop, a freelance web developer based in Brighton, East Sussex with 20 years’ experience in web technologies. I build functional, beautiful web sites for SMEs that help them achieve their online goals.









Web Development

I custom build web sites to your requirements, choosing an open source framework that suits your project and plans for the future.

Web Application Development

Have some special requirements for your project? I can build you a bespoke web application in Laravel.

API Design

Do you need to connect your web application to another? I can build you an API to allow others to connect to you.


I supply a complete ecommerce platform to manage your inventory, take payments and track orders from sale to completion. I can help you integrate your existing Point of Sale system with your online inventory.

Content Management

A CMS like WordPress allows you to manage your site content yourself, without having to depend on external web developers. I provide the training, documentation and support for your staff.

Website Maintenance

My maintenance service keeps your site up to date the latest security updates and makes regular backups to the cloud. And you have the peace of mind of knowing I am on the end of the phone if you need me.

Data Migration

Whether you need to migrate content from a legacy system; publish data from a back-office database on your site or integrate your web inventory with your in-store POS system, I can help.

Website Customisation

Sometimes the standard modules and plugins don’t have the functionality you need. I can build custom modules or modify site templates to your exact specifications.

Robin made quite a complicated job seem straightforward and made sure we understood how to operate the system so we could be self-reliant straight away. Robin also saved us money by finding alternatives to paid plugins. If you’re looking to set up an e-commerce store, I recommend speaking to Robin.

Good Money

Working with Robin at Moot Point has been a real pleasure. His ability to explain the technicalities of SEO in a language I understood was great. There really was so much we weren’t doing as a business to increase our SEO which Moot Point was able to rectify very quickly.
