Things to Remember

If you feel overwhelmed by the terminology or confused by the specifics, or perhaps you're just beginning your search for the perfect designer, then you may benefit from the information below.

Page: This term refers to a collection of information presented in a visual format that you can scroll to read if the content is not all visible on your computer screen. Pages on a website are organized by topic, and generally are accessed by clicking a link. A page on the web that is well designed, will have organized content that makes sense together, and will present it in manageable amounts to the reader.

Expansion: In the future, you can expand your website on a page by page, graphic by graphic, or application by application basis after you've purchased your initial site just like you can expand your house! The cost for expansion will still reflect the quality of work being done, however, it will not be near as costly as your initial site.

Web Applications: This term applies to almost any functional component of the website that is not basic text or images. For example, a shopping cart system, a slide-show gallery, or a personal forum would all be considered "Web Applications" on some level. Some are more complex and complicated to set-up and others are fairly simple. If you are interested in self-maintaining a more complex application, we will give you a custom quote. If you want to purchase a "plug and play"appication, it will be coordinated into your website. We will work with you to find and apply the best options for your page.

Defining your purpose

The first step in building a website is defining your purpose. From this, an outline is made that determines navigation and content sections.

Finding your style

Next comes finding your style, from which your palette of colors is chosen. If you have a logo or theme, it can be built from those. If not, a logo or heading may need to be created.

Think Marketing

From the start, we always think marketing. Words are key. They need to reflect your purpose, and be represented in your content. These words are considered "keywords", but they are more than that, they are what will create your viewer's impression of your website. We use all the techniques available to make sure your website is found in the search engines. This is also known as SEO or search engine optimization.

What do you need?

Defining your purpose also determines the applications required. Do you need to generate sales? Would you like to make contact with your viewers by email or web chat? Are you presenting ideas that you want to update regularily? How much change will you make to your site and how often?

Websites are interactive. The possibilites are only limited by creativity. At Caffeinated Web Design, we specialize in innovation.

After the purpose and design elements are decided, the technical aspects are addressed. Just how does a website get onto the web?

Hosts and Servers

To put a website on the web, a computer called a server that is always connected to the internet is used to store your web page files and "serve them up" to any web surfer who requests a view. This is called Web site hosting. All websites need to be hosted somewhere.

Create a Domain Name

Every web page needs a unique ID so that it can be found on the net with no confusion. There are a variety of ways to identify one website from another, but the most common is by using a domain name. This is a unique name reserved for periods of time, and linked to the hosting Server where the web page files reside. A domain name is something like "Yahoo.com" or "University.edu". Before you can reserve a domain name for your website pages, you have to create one that has not already been reserved by someone else.

Caffeinated Web Design can to do all of this for you. From providing a Hosting service to finding and registering your domain name, we provide everything you need to get your website online.

Now your pages are crafted, sent to you for a preview, and then uploaded to your hosting service, given a domain name, and made live for viewing. Your domain name or "web address" is submitted to search sites like Google and yahoo so that others can find your website.

Last but not Least

Last but not least, you pay the piper, Caffeinated Web Design, for building you a dynamic, and expertly crafted website. Since the experience will be so refreshing and pleasant for you, we are confident that you will recommend us to your friends, and come back to us whenever you need updates.

Like a good cup of coffee with a friend, Caffeinated Web Design truly is a mood altering experience!
