What We Can Do For You
From basic website setup and creation to dynamic sites and custom graphics, we at 460 Website Design can do just about anything you want...as long as its legal and within reason. To give you a better idea, this page has been broken down into some of the major catergories of services provided by 460 Website Design.
There are four main facets of webpage design: analysis, construction,
upkeep, and hosting. To give you a better idea on how 460 Website
Design creates and/or maintains you webpage, we will look at each step
Analysis is the first step in the webpage creation process. It
is where we find out from you what you would like your webpage to do,
who is your target audience, what you would like your site to look like,
and any other special considerations that need to be kept in mind.
This is the most crucial part of web page design because if the proper
message of how you want your site is not relayed, most likey your site
will not look they way you want it. Even though it would be to everyone's
advantage, 460 Website Design does not currently have any mind readers
on staff, therefore communication between 460 Website Design and you is
Construction is where 460 Website Design actually builds your site.
The first step is a draft of the site which will be submitted to you for
approval. If anything was missed during the analysis phase, most
of it will become visible here. When a final copy is approved upon,
it will be moved out to a web hosting provider on the World Wide Web for
everyone to see.
Upkeep is the second most important step in the development of
a website. If information is not kept current on your website, most likely
people will not frequent it. Upkeep issues will be discussed one on one
in the analysis phase.
Hosting deals with the actual physical location of the pages that make up your site. Many ISPs [Internet Service Providers] include a limited amount of webspace to their clients along with their basic services. We will discuss your budget and needs during the analysis phase to find the best fit solution as to where to host your site. In the meantime, we'll give you a bit of a head start on the discussion:
- If your website is small or not heavily trafficked, using your ISP-provided hosting space (if applicable) is a great solution to the question of hosting. If this option is not available, keep reading...
- If your site is large or you anticipate a large volume of users, leasing space from a hosting provider is your best bet. For small to mid-range sites [both in traffic and storage size], 460 Website Design has plans to fit your budget, starting at $2/month. Please see the pricing page for more information.
- If your site is massively popular and/or gargantuan in storage needs, a Virtual Private Server or Dedicated Server would be the route to go. For more information and prices on this option, visit ServInt Internet Services, 460 Website Design's parent hosting provider.
A domain name is the plaintext alias of your site's IP address (e.g.
460design.com -> 126.96.36.199). If you do not have a domain name and
wish to obtain one for your site, we will discuss your options in the
analysis phase. As a standard practice, we put forth our regular registrar ServInt Domains which are priced at $10/year.
Whether its from scratch graphic creation or manipulation of your existing
images, the 460 Website Design team can do it, with a little help from
Adobe Photoshop and Macromedia Fireworks.
Dynamic pages are those which utilize forms and databases for user specific
or event driven output. These will be discussed individually in the analysis
