Do You Want a Fast, Fresh, Functional Website?

Yeah You Do

How can we help you and your business?

Web Design & Development

We build all our websites from the ground up with a focus on speed, visually appealing designs, and the functionality your users expect. Our primary focus as a website design and development company — performance.

Website Care & Management

All of our websites are easy to manage on your own. However, if you want to be completely hands off we can handle all the updates for you!

Data-Driven Decision Making

With our Flatwater Analytics add-on, you’ll get real-time updates on your website. We can pinpoint sticking points on your website and constantly update and improve.

About us and our philosophy on… like… websites and life

We’re a website development and design company located in Des Moines, Iowa. We build websites and relationships. If you’re starting a business, have an existing website that needs updated, or just need someone to talk to about website options, we want to be your teammate.


We aren’t looking for clients, we’re looking for teammates. Creating or redesigning a website from the ground up is daunting. We want to be with you every step of the way — we want to be your partner.


Your website will likely be the first and sometimes only chance to sell your business to someone. A proper website should be configured in a way that’s straightforward for your users. From building the site to constructing your messaging, we will help you plan.


We wanna go fast! Your website should too. Today’s users expect a fast, high-performing website and we always start with speed in mind. Website speed affects how many of your users stay and even your Google rankings. We build to perform.

Peace of Mind

Our servers have an average uptime of 99.99% so you don’t have to worry if it’s up and running. If you want to be hands-off with managing your site, we can help for the fraction of what it costs for a full-time web manager. Your website should deliver peace of mind.

Working with us helps Nonprofits

In addition to our nonprofit discount, we run the Flatwater Websites Opportunity Grant. Each year, we select one nonprofit, design and develop a website for them completely free. Partnering with us helps smaller nonprofits who need the extra web help. You better bee-lieve it.

What’s the buzz about flatwater?

Our website needs were complex and overwhelming. We needed an all-in-one system where anyone could quickly schedule a game and allow our gamemasters to change their availability on their own. Flatwater knocked it out of the park with a blazing fast website.

I wanted a website design that would convey professionalism and highlight my work all while making my users feel at peace and ready to book. Flatwater Websites created a clean, easy to understand website that conveys those feelings.
