Things to Consider Before You Build
HIRE A PROFESSIONAL
Before creating a website one must consider the factors involved with such a feat such as cost, maintenance, use and web hosting.
What Hosting to Use
One of the first things to consider before creating a website is hosting. The hosting plan you choose should be affordable for the project as well as reliable. Keep in mind that purchasing the cheapest hosting possible is not always the smartest decision you can make. You should do research on the hosting service and shop around to find one that is reliable and has a good up-time percentage. One host that I use pretty much exclusively at this point is very affordable for any project is A2 Hosting . They have yet to let my clients or I down.
Should I hire a Professional?
The second question on one's mind would be if hiring a professional would be an affordable option. If you are building a simple website you could always learn a minimal amount of coding to get the job done. However when it comes to larger projects and more complex coding and you need a bit more than just providing the end user with information, hiring a website designer would be a viable option. Not only in terms of the design but the security of the site itself.
Considering these two factors one must also ask the question, do we actually need a website? If it will boost sales or promote a positive affluence to your business then by all means go ahead and do what is best. In this day and age a company with a website will be twice as successful as one without.
Web Designer - Managing Director
Jon is a web designer in Sedona Arizona. He started with web design at the age of 17 where he created "Only the Best Apps" - a website where he would test and choose "Only the Best" software from around the internet. It was all hand coded with Homesite - at that time the best (in his humble opinion) HTML editor around. He believes in local economy, open source technology, and helps bring the best the internet has to offer.
