Website Creation Process

Development

  1. Mock up: I will start by creating a functional mock up using WordPress, with all the pages and components using dummy contents > At this point normally I ask for 50% of the total price so we are professionally committed
  2. Contents: I will continue developing the website, involving you in the process, adding real contents. I will let you now how to send me the text and images and how to name them
  3. Design: Once the website is fully functional with all contents, I can change colours, font types, font sizes, add backgrounds, rearrange components, sizes and positions until I meet your requirements
  4. Live: I will make the website live and I will connect it to the Google free services, then I will make some live tests and will refine the website > At this point I will ask you for the remaining 50% of the budget
  5. After Life: I will let you know how to access the Admin area of your website to change the contents of your website, that is update text and upload images and how to make backups
  6. Future: I will always be here in the future if you need me, for minor future changes it will be free of charge, for big changes we will need to define again the Brief, Timing and Budget

Domain and Hosting

When you create a website you need to 2 elements: A domain name (www.domainname.com) and a hosting space (to store your website files). Read more about domain name and hosting space 

  • If you do not have a domain name and a hosting space you will need to purchase them in a provider company, you may also need an SSL certificate to have HTTPS security support (to have more security or if your website is an ecommerce online shop) and a maybe branding email
  • If you have a domain and hosting space: I will need the FTP settings and the Control panel credentials, you can get them by emailing or calling your provider company or in the emails that they sent you or if you have a website, ask your web developer. If you already have a website I will make a general Backup of your existing website
