Website design

To have your own unique and individual presence on the Internet, three things are required:

  • A domain name – the name used to identify your website on the internet. Prices vary from $30 to about $80 a year for a New Zealand domain. Other countries’ domains can be less or more expensive.
  • A host computer – the server that stores and displays your website pages on the internet. It must be connected to the internet at all times and prices vary from $15 a month upwards, depending on size and traffic volumes.
  • The actual website itself – this must be designed and built. This can, but need not be, very expensive.

WebDesignLogo Together, we can design a website, and I will then build it for you.

The process
The first thing you need is an understanding of what you want your website to convey, and how you want the pages to interconnect. I’m happy to discuss this with you.

Next is the visual design of the website. There are many website templates on the internet to give you ideas. Professional templates can be purchased, or a website can be built completely from your original ideas.

The next stage is to host and update your website. I can also do this for you through FastComet hosting, or you can purchase hosting form many different vendors.

The last stage is to purchase your domain name, if you don't have one already, and connect it to your website. Again I can provide this service for you or you can purchase domains through various registries.
