Website Development Map
Updated: Jul 24, 2019
This is the most important phase, as it determines the overall planning of the website. From consulting with the client to understanding their goals they need to achieve, the target audience they wish to attract. In this phase we clarify some points in brief with the client,which covers :
The type, purpose and functionality of the future website.
Whom do they expect to be their "ideal" visitor?
Is the website going to provide information, promote a service, or sell a product?
Do you have any website inspiration, or should we suggest you with some samples?
Even if the client does not have any website design brief,we can help them with our experience. Also,taking into consideration various factors like project cost, equipment cost, practicality etc. Selecting a proper technology stack for the website.Such types of consulting session will help the client as well as us for a better planning of the website.
In this phase the website starts taking shape. We create a website layout, which is either a graphic sketch or an actual graphic design. It contains colours, logos, images and demonstrates the basic functional. The layout’s primary purpose is to visualise the content and informational structure of the website. The key factor taken into consideration is the target audience.
Once the layout has been developed, client gets the opportunity to give feedback. According to UI/UX design experts, customers often find it difficult to tell a good web design from a bad one at first glance.Though many people believe that the key factor is ‘cool’ graphics, the most attractive websites are not necessarily effective.
At this stage, the website design matches your expectations seamlessly thanks to planning phase. If for any reason, something is out of sync with the ultimate goals, we return to the first stage and repeat the web development life-cycle until client is satisfied.
This is where the expertise of web development services are needed the most when actual coding is done. In this phase, our developers convert the graphical prototype into an actual website. As a rule, they start from the home page and then work their way toward interior pages, according to the sitemap’s flow. It is here that we make HTML pages for desktop and mobile devices.
This is typically done by first developing the home page, followed by a “shell” for the interior pages. The shell serves as a template for the content pages of your site, as it contains the main navigational structure for the web site. Once the shell has been created, your designer will take your content and distribute it throughout the site, in the appropriate areas.
This entire time, the designer will continue to make your in-progress website available to you for viewing, so that you can suggest any additional changes or corrections you would like to have done.
After it is all done, the developer checks and re-checks every single link to ensure each one works. Testing all browsers and mobile devices ensures your website is cross-platform compatible.
Securing Website With SSL Certificate
Using SSL dramatically improves the perception that users have of your brand. When your site has signed by a trusted third party certificate, your customers are ensured that they are indeed on a valid and trusted site. They will be less worried about security issues and will engage with you more effectively.
SSL achieves this feat by issuing a server certificate along with the SSL certificate. This server certificate increases the trust factor of the service provided and helps the customer verify whether you are really who you claim to be.
Using tools and scripts to minify HTML,CSS & JS. Minification helps in loading the website at faster rate.
Using Image compression tools to compress images and also delete unused images.
Enabling Gzip Compression to increase website performance.
SEO can help you improve your rankings in search engine results.
Using Nginx which serves as a reverse proxy server which helps to reduce the load on the Application server and effectively use the Hardware.
Once approved, The developer delivers the website to the server. This can be done in three different ways:
You provide us with access to your hosting and domain registration and we do all the work to launch your website.
You grant us access to a sub-domain created on your website, we deliver the website, but it is your specialists who transmit it to the main domain and launch.
We provide you all the requirements like Domain Name, Website hosting and launching the website.
The final step is making the website view able to the public. You can launch it yourself or entrust this task to the developer.
Website can be hosted on Wix or word press or on Clouds like AWS, GCP. When hosting on cloud we recommend dockerizing your website, this makes it Cloud agnostic and contains all dependencies.
Clients will also get a Knowledge transfer of the website infrastructure such as credentials, instructions for renewals and small changes for the website. This will make them self-sufficiently to manage the site.
If you already have a website, but your business has outgrown it, you might consider relaunching. This involves changing the overall look and structure of your website. A website relaunch makes it more visible in search engines and goes hand-in-hand with target reorientation best practices.
