Sealand is a sovereign principality in international waters, seven miles off the eastern shore of Britain.
It was founded on a so-called fortress island as an offshore radio station in 1967 by Roy Bates, a Major in the British Army. After initial challenges to its sovereignty, it was duly recognized in a British court of law.
Design Box Media took over Sealand’s website to give it “a fresh, modern, and professional approach”, catering to its large worldwide presence and continuous growth. Naturally, they chose WooCommerce.
“We needed to create a functional eCommerce website that would allow potential customers to purchase personalized and unique Sealand titles.”

The tiny locale wanted to create a brand-new experience for Sealand fans across the world, highlighting its fascinating history and showcasing previously unavailable footage and information.
Sealand also provides a bespoke webmail service, and so Thomas and his team created a subscription system, allowing customers to create and renew their ongoing email accounts.
