5 Step Web Design Process

A lot of people calling about Web Design ask the same question “Whats involved with getting a website?” They want to know if they have to do anything themselves, how long it takes, can they manage the site etc.. Heres how it all works.

  1. First step. In conjunction with the client we pick a suitable domain name that is a good keyword for their business area. I check to see if this domain name is available and if its the .ie version I request ‘proof of trading’ from the client. This is most often in the form of a Company Registration Number available from www.cro.ie
  2. When the domain has gone through, I organize hosting for the site, ie – the physical location of the files and pages that make up the site and allow it to be viewed on the web.
  3. I install the Content Management system or Website Framework for the site.
  4. I sit with the client and take them through picking a suitable template for the site incorporating a color scheme and layout that suits their tastes and sector. I may direct the client to the template viewing area of my site so they can browse in their own time – www.reverbstudios.ie/web_templates.php
  5. I request page content and images from the client to finish the site off. Alternatively, I can sit with the client and talk them through adding their own content and using the Content Management System themselves.

Most basic site builds take less than a week if all content is ready to go. E-commerce/Online Shop sites typically take a little longer.
