The word “Internet” is a popular term, all over the globe, today.
The term website is a place holder where one can share his information
from anywhere across the globe. If one puts up his/her details in
a website, then the details will be made available to everyone who
visits the website. A web browser is needed to go through the contents
which are put up on the website.
There are four things which you should consider before you place an
order for your own websites.
- Domain Purchasing
- Domain Renewal
The first thing “Look” is all about design. It is the
design which gets the customer, an impressive feeling. The design
should well express your products which you are going to create value
in the market. Normally, there are two designs; Home Page and Inner
page design. For a sales website, home page design will be applied
to all other pages. However, it is decided by the customer who places
order for website. The design gives an idea for preparing contents
as it defines exclusively the look for the website.
After the design, plan “contents”, decide what content
should go where etc. Prepare contents, get the contents to be typed
and get it placed on the web pages.
There are normally two kinds of web pages; Static and Dynamic. Static
pages deliver the information contents in the page itself. For Example,
Dynamic pages will read the information contents from database and
displays the same. Dynamic pages are needed whenever the information
is going to change regularly.
There will be three types of charges for development of website; charge
for design, charge for developing web pages by importing design into
web pages, putting up the contents. There will be separate charge
for developing dynamic pages as these involve various queries and
other complex statements.
In between design and planning the contents, one should get “domain
name”. This name will identify your business globally. You need
to tell your domain name when asked by the internet savvy customer.
You can print the domain name on visiting cards of your business.
The domain name consists of two parts which is separated by a dot.
First part represents name of your choice and the second part represents
the extension. Example, for icantech.in, the name is icantech and
in is the extension. You can get .com, .net, .in, .biz, .co.in, .co.uk,
etc. as extensions. The domain registration and host plan rates also
depends on the extension which you choose for the domain name. For
example, .com extension is the most popularly used extension and it
is the highest rated extension among the set of extensions available
After choosing the domain name, make sure that, the domain name is
available or not. The domain name might have taken by someone else.
At that time, you will have an option of choosing alternate domain
name or same domain name with some other extension. For example, if
icantech.com is already been taken, go for icantech.in or icantech.co.in.
After taking domain name, you need to choose, type of hosting. The
type of hosting depends on the server sided scripting which you are
going to execute. There are two types of server sided scripting which
is dominating today’s world of internet. They are based on two
server platforms, namely, the Linux and the Windows. The choice of
this depends on the creation of dynamic pages. If one needs to use
.NET, Active Server Pages then he has to choose Windows based server
for hosting. If one wants PHP, CGI, Perl etc. then he need to choose
Linux based hosting. The price of windows server is quite high compared
to Linux because; Windows is a closed source operating system and
requires paying some licensing fees while purchasing the same. But,
on the other hand, Linux servers are being developed on open sources
which waivers out the licensing fees. Only maintenance cost must be
paid by the owners of the Linux servers.
The onetime charge for registering the domain name and the domain
maintenance charges will need to be paid. The domain “maintenance”
charges will have to be paid yearly. There are several schemes and
offers available for the domain registration and domain hosting maintenance.
Some offer unlimited space for hosting. It is better to opt for unlimited
space as one can keep uploading new things in the server. The domain
registration charges usually depend on the extensions which the domain
name uses. The commonly used extensions are .com, .net, .org, .edu,
.in, .biz, .co.in, .co.uk, etc.
After the purchase of domain name and hosting space, the customer
of the domain name will get a user name and password and other settings
which are related for accessing the domain name. The process of file
transfer from local system into domain name space is known as “Uploading”
and will be done by the programmer, to whom one will forward the user
name, password and related settings.
From now on, the website will become readable and viewable to all
internet viewers across the world.
