What do I need for my site?

Server

This is the place where all the files making up your site is stored. All the required software to display your site content in a web browser is installed here. Server hosting can be billed separately every month or once a year.

Domain

Your site needs a URL or domain name in order for clients to find it. For example, the site domain you are on now is paperchord.co.za, the www prefix is not required in this instance. This is usually a separate annual cost.

Site

All the files needed for your site. To save space on your server you can, for instance, link videos to Youtube, but generally, all your required content will be contained within your own file structure. Using a professional web designer to do this for you saves a LOT of time and hassle.

Development process

Brief

During the brief, you should define the project, find out about the target audience and define the goals and targets clearly. All technical aspects should be discussed and confirmed. Be sure to confirm with whom the responsibility lies for content and recources. Finally, agree on the timeline and budget.

Planning

This step consists of initial planning which includes brainstorming, concept creation, site structure and page layout. A wireframe mockup can be generated to define the content as well as the ease of use for the consumer.

Design

An integral part of the design phase is the discussion about colour scheme. This should suit the logo and other branding elements used. Visual elements and typography are just as important and some time should be devoted to this. Desiding on whether to use rich media, or how much to use, also forms part of this discussion.

Development

When the design and layout have been approved it is time to start developing the site. This involves creating a site structure, integrating content and visual elements, checking performance and security.

Launch

Testing links and user experience and integrating analytincs form part of the launch phase. If it is required by the client, and have been quoted for, training on site usage and administration will now be done.

Maintenance

Monthly maintenance is crucial. Backups, updates and edits form part of this and will ensure that the site runs hassle free and if the worst happens, you have fallback data to get you up and running again in the shortest amount of time.
