A Step-by-Step Guide to creating Your Website (cont.)

Step Four: Development of Designs
Once we've picked out the best of the initial designs, we'll develop these further and make any small tweaks and changes.  We can move things around, combine multiple designs, and try out different colours and images.  We would expect to go through two or three stages of development before deciding on a final design, and you will be consulted at each step of the design process.

Step Five: Final Design & Build
Now we can produce the final design, which shows you what your website will look like.  We'll show this to you, and if it's all ok, we can go ahead and build it.  Depending on the size and complexity of your website, this stage could take a variable amount of time, from a couple of weeks to a couple of months, (or more for something like an e-commerce site).
We'll keep you updated the whole way through, and you are of course welcome to contact us at any point to see how we're getting on

Finally: Publishing your site
Either we can handle all this for you, or you can take care of this yourself - please read on, particularly:  Web Addresses, Domain Names & Hosting and Keeping up-to-date

Web Addresses, Domain Names & Hosting

Web Address: What you type into the Address Bar of a web browser to find a specific website or page. 

Domain Name: Used in a similar way to a Web Address, a domain name is a unique word or phrase that can be purchased and used to direct people to a website.  For example, our domain name, www.randomweaseldesigns.co.uk - directs people to our website.  Ownership is usually renewed on a yearly or bi-yearly basis. 
If you already have or had a website, chances are you already have/own a domain name.  We can transfer this over to your new website.  If not, it is very easy and inexpensive to purchase one, and we can do this for you if you like.

Hosting:  Every website on the internet has to be stored on a special computer, called a Server, which is where web browsers go to get the pages they display.  The cost of hosting varies greatly.  We can arrange hosting for you for 3 - 4 per month, which also includes your own domain name.  If you prefer, you can opt instead for a self-managed website and take care of this yourself.    (See Keeping up-to-date)
