Building a web site is a process that involves a few steps.
The first and foremost thing to think about is the purpose of your planned web site. How will a web site help you meet your goals?
Who will your audience be? Will the site be used by an organization or club?
Are you planning to use it to inform, communicate, entertain or build a community? Will this site be used for sales and or support of your clients?
How large an audience are you looking to reach and where are your visitors located?
Now is a good time to also think about gathering any materials that will be used as content on the site. This would include any text, images or other media.
If you are planning a sales/e-commerce site, you will need to decide such things as how sales transactions will be handled, how items are to be shipped and via what means
For example, how will you ship items? Will the services of UPS, FedEx, USPS etc. be used? Consider the rates charged for shipping your items.
SolidHostDesign builds web sites using the WordPress CMS platform. A CMS, short for content management system, is a software application that allows users to create and manage websites without having to write the code that makes the web site function.
Using this platform, a web site can be created rather quickly and easily as compared to having to write the code necessary to provide the services you require.
This particular CMS platform is mature and has hundreds of software add-ons or “plug-ins” that provide the additional capabilities your site will require.
SolidHostDesign can help select, install and configure the best plug-ins needed for your site. SolidHostDesign can also manage your site for you once it is up and running.
