Website Development

Now that we’ve gone through the easier way of making a website, let’s take a look at the tougher way. You can create your own website from scratch using graphic design software. You need to first conceive the design, put it down in paper and then proceed to having it done in using software like Photoshop.

The web design of your site must blend with the kind of contents that you place in it and also with the overall purpose of launching the site.  Many sites have graphics and animation files to make the site more interesting. While these elements do add to the sites appearance and interactivity, they can also make the site to load slowly. Another important point to note is navigation. Site navigation must take the visitor to reach exactly the information that they are seeking. The navigation paths must be clear and easy-to-reach in each page.

Content is the site must be well-presented. After all, visitors will be coming to your site to see its contents. The contents must have SEO elements in it so that it is search-engine friendly. Only then will search engines retrieve the site during popular searches and your site will appear within top ten listings of a search.  SEO elements must be incorporated into the content, tags, HTML coding and so on, to give such results after the site is up and running.

Once each page of the site has been completely designed, you have to put the pages together using Dreamweaver. The site must be fully tested. Elements such as audio, animation and site navigation should be fully checked and working correctly, so that there are no errors when the actual site is launched.

Once you have your site designed and tested, you have to look out for a web hosting company. Choose a web hosting service provider who offers you good uptime, reasonable rates, good security and of course, 24 X 7 support
