Many of us will have ideas for a website but do not know where to start. First who do I go to? As there are so many providers of web services. There are so many questions you have including the all important how much is it going to cost?
Because of the technical base of the web there is a lot of terminology that can be confusing. A website is essentially a collection of uniformed pages that sit on a computer somewhere. The Internet is world wide network hence the name world wide web.
For most of us we don't need to know the technical detail, all we want is a website that we can add our content to quickly and easily. Another important concern is how the pages look, this is the web design. Every web project I have worked on I find people have concerns about how the pages appear, the page layout, colours and fonts.
Before any website gets built you should think about the purpose of the website with a long term view. Note it down and build up the content and the design. How will You keep the content up to date so your audience will keep visiting. Websites have now become a complex tool for organisations and individuals. We suggest that you start basic and build up your site as your knowledge of web increases.
