WEB DESIGN TYPES – There are many types of web design available to you. The one you choose should be the one that will suit your business and its needs the most.
Static HTML Web Design – 1 or 2 pages
If you only need a page or two, and know it wont need to change for the foreseeable, then a static html website maybe better suited to your budget. Designed with your business in mind. It will also be as highly search engine optimised as much as possible. Click Here for Web Design Prices
Database Driven Web Design – 3 pages or more
A database driven website is the most popular option. It is a website that has all of its content stored within a database. Therefore the pages of your site are created dynamically. You will be able to control the content of your site at your leisure via a Content Management System
Additionally, we have also found that it is cheaper to opt for the database driven option. This cuts down development time further as the majority of pages are created dynamically. Therefore each website page does not have to be built manually. Ultimately, a Content Management System will also save you time and money.
You would have access to a password pretected secure area of your website, in which you simply log in. You are presented with a menu containing your pages, you simply click the page you want to edit, type away then click submit. This will update your website instantly. This means you are in full control of the site and ultimately you will not have to return to us time after time and have to pay for amends to your website.
The Database Driven Web Design option also has many more advantages to just a static HTML website. You can store all of your enquiries online should you wish, creating an online archive of your customers. You would also be able to add additional services/products to your website so it can grow further with your business.
It does not matter how big or small your site will be. To give the ability to change content, a content management system can be added to a single page website.
WordPress Web Design
WordPress is an excellent off the shelf program. As it is off the shelf, we do not have to hand code it, therefore costing you much less. It is the best of both worlds. You will have access to your admin section allowing you to update the WordPress website yourself. There are however advantages and disadvantages to a WordPress website that we have detailed out here [Pros and cons of a WordPress Website]. Prices for WordPress website design start from £199 including domain name and hosting for the first year.
eCommerce Web Designs
