What sets us apart?

We know the code!

Many web design companies or individuals will charge you superfluously for a website, only to buy a pre-packaged website and replace the dummy text with yours. Please don't waste your money.

Fortis' websites are always custom-made from scratch. Why is this better? You (the customer) can have us customize it and add features as you desire. We have handcrafted automated realtor home listing engines, image galleries, calendars, and blogs.

We are more affordable.

Fortis' prices are not bloated like those of larger firms. We do not maintain as many payrolls and we do not have office fees (we work from home).

The quotes and consultations are free; you only pay for the results.

We keep up with the web.

The web is changing drastically. Websites considered exceptional five years ago are now uncomely.

Fortis stays on top of the market by following the latest web design trends, techniques, and styles. We can help you make a good impression on your website audience.

The Process


This is where we get to know you. You give us a rundown on the site. We want to learn as much as possible about the job: the details of the company, how many pages the site will have, and what kinds of features the site will have.

Every website job is different; therefore, we need to learn about you before making a proposal.


With all the information you give us, we make the most accurate quote possible and dictate our terms.

Upon acceptance of the proposal, the site is ready to begin creation.


At this point, we take requests on the design of the website. We create a single home page template using your input, and send it to you to review.

After the structure and design is satisfactory, the site is ready for page and content creation


This stage can take several weeks, as we build the framework and content for the site. Depending on the agreement, we may ask you for specific content, including text, images, and other media.

Testing and Delivery

Here we test the site and work through bugs. After the site is fully tested and ready to go, we put it online. Your site is registered with several analytics tools, including Google Analytics and StatCounter.


We continue management of your website for the consented timeframe. We continue optimizing your site for search engines for several months after delivery.

The Team

Christopher Carsey
Christopher Carsey
Owner/Lead Developer

Christopher has been working with websites since 2008. His love for web design and programming led him to begin Fortis Web Systems in June 2012.

Though his real interest is in building complex programs on the back-end, Christopher has recently discovered a passion for the front-end UI. His accomplishments include teaching himself all the web languages, creating a Content Management System from scratch using PHP, and converting raw XML data feeds into visually appealing user interfaces.

Christopher is currently studying Mathematics and Computer Science at the University of Arizona.  He is getting married in June 2015 to his beautiful fiancée.


We are currently looking for a skilled individual to be a business partner. This is a part-time job paid a percentage per successful referral.
