So, you’ve finally made the decision to create the website that you have always been thinking about. Now that you have taken the first step in becoming a player in the online universe, here is what you can expect from our web development services.
Domain Name Registration: We will register a domain name for you based on availability. Your domain name is the online name that browsers will use to distinguish you from other websites. Think of it as your www dot “name” dot com. Based on your top three in order of preference, we will select the first that is available. In the unlikely instance that your top three preferred domain names are taken, we will continue to search until we find a free domain name for you. Registering a domain name does not create a website. It’s simply an online name, like registering a business name in the physical world; having that business name does not mean that you also have the store front to go with it.
Connection to Hosting Service and Account Creation: We will connect your selected domain name to a web hosting service which will now get you connected to the Internet. By placing you on a web host, the world will now be connected and have visibility. We will also create an individual account for your site to give it a home on the web host. If getting a business name is analogous to getting a domain name, then renting office space for a physical business is like getting a web hosting account.
Creation of Email Account: Depending on the web development package you select, we will set up an email account for you tied to your website and domain name. This email will allow you to create accounts and send emails with your website name associated to it, giving you an additional level of professionality. So rather than having to send business emails with Yahoo or Gmail accounts, you can send and receive emails on your own email service creating legitimacy in the eyes of the recipients of your emails.
Developing Your Webpages: Once we have finalized your domain name registration and web hosting service, the next step is to design the web site itself. We will install the proper software on your server to create the website instance, select the appropriate web design based on your preference, guidance and industry or area of expertise, configure all settings and ensure both text and multimedia content are properly populated and implement basic search engine optimization (SEO) to help you get recognized by search engines such as Google and Bing.
Finalization and Handover: At this point, your website has been registered and fully developed based on initial scope of work. We will review the website fully with you. Some changes may be required. After these corrections or edits the website will be live. It will be available to be viewed by anyone around the world with an internet connection and knows your website address. However, it won’t be found on search engines yet. It will take search engines some time to crawl (find and index your website) and add it to their platform. To speed the process, we will submit the domain name to all top search engines to crawl and index. We will let them know keywords to match with your website. We will at this point officially hand over the website to you and give you the opportunity (30 days free support) to make any contextual or structural amendments to the website that you see fit. This grace period to make modifications and adjustments to the site will last for four weeks starting from the day of official hand over.
