Give us 3 Minutes and We will Make you Acquainted with Website Development
Imagine a case, wherein, you are out for purchasing a packet of chips. You reach at a retail store and see myriad choices, but there is this one flavor that grabs your attention and looks tempting. You reach to check it, but don’t end up buying it. Instead you buy the brand whose promising advertisements you’ve seen popping up on the internet.
So, even if that anonymous chips packet that you chose in the first place was way better in taste and quality than what you finally bought, but you were not aware about it. You are a person who knows brands that come up while you are using internet on your phone or PC. So, that chips company did not have an online presence, which is why it was failing in attracting a whole group of customers like you.
Let us inform you with the fact that there are 4.39 billion internet users in 2019, which accounts as more than half of the entire world’s population. This makes having an online presence even more indispensable in today’s scenario. Because even if you run a business which is useful and ingenious but there is no way to find it, then it will eventually be substituted by your competitors who have a web presence.
Don’t freak out! We have got your back.
Website development is that tool that will provide your business with the podium that will help you get the necessary online recognition and will help you get in touch with millions of surfers online. With a website:
- You will be better able to market your products and services to a much wider audience
- It will make your business look more reliable and professional.
You must be scratching your heads thinking, what does this website development comprise of?
So, website development is the work that goes into making a website. It can be a simple web page designing or developing a complex web application. Following are the sub-processes that are a part of website development:
1. Planning the Blueprint of your Website:
No plan no success. Similarly, websites also work on planning. Developers call this planning as the “blueprint”. The blueprint is nothing but the list of all the main topics of the site and the subtopics that will come under each of those topics. It naturally becomes easier to step forward if you have a clear idea of the vision with which the website has to be made. The blueprint of the website must be planned keeping in mind the nature of your end user (SECRET TIP: A good website is easy to navigate and loads quickly).
During this phase, you will also finalize what technologies will you be using, what Content Management System will be incorporated, what forms will be needed in the website, etc.
Following are the questions you must ask yourself while planning the website prototype:
- How many numbers of pages in the website do you want? What content will be there on those web pages?
- Which page will come under what category? What will be hierarchical structure of the website?
- How will these pages be connected to each other, if need be?
You must have a document that keeps all the information regarding the target and goals of the website to be made, so give you the correct directions throughout the process.
2. Writing the Website Code (front end development):
Another worrisome task is to write the code. There are an endless set of choices available in coding languages for developing back end of the website. Knowing the blueprint of your website, you can choose which language will serve to the functionality of your site.
Below, we are briefing the three most commonly used technologies to design the front end (the way it will appear to the audience) of your website:
a. HTML (Hyper Text Markup Language):
b. CSS(Cascading Style Sheet):
This language supplements the look and feel of the website by allowing the addition of elements like typography, color and layouts. This helps in enhancing the aesthetics of the website and makes it compatible with various types of browsers.
All these three languages when combined effectively will help you create the most user-friendly and attractive website. Other than these three, languages like Java, C++, Python, Dot NET, etc are also most used languages that too get used in capacity.
But it becomes very time consuming to develop the entire client-side coding from scratch. To make this process a lot faster, nowadays, some of the coding resources come in handy.
Yes. CMS (Content Management System) is a web application that helps you in creating and managing web content. After you have your website template ready, CMS provides you with plug-ins (these help in removing the need to write the back end code) and add-ons and lets you create the structure with your code. For Example, Word press, Hubspot, etc. These applications provide you with tools to host the site. But they lack a little on flexibility, so you might somewhere feel restricted working on the front end.
After you have got the front end developed and the plug-in chosen, you will now have to get your website an IP address. You will also need a domain name that will be the name with which your visitors will know you.
The most commonly chosen service providers that provide you with the domain name are GoDaddy, Hover, etc. Some site building applications like Wordpress also allow purchasing of a domain name.
3. Back-end Development of the Website:
Back-end of the website is the side that only you, as a developer will handle and your clients will not be able to see that. Back-end developers are the people who work with server operating systems and databases. They are the ones responsible for maintaining the security of the site and site structure.
The back-end handles the data of your clients and your website, so that the smooth functionality reflects on the front end. Following are the two major components of back-end:
It stores, organizes and processes the data so that any query generated by the user must be retrieved effectively. SQL is the most commonly used language that helps people deal with the database.
They act as an intermediary between the database and the client. Whenever the client browser raises a request, and then server fetches that information from the database and provides it to the client.
If your website is not storing much data, then the importance of back-end drops substantially. But if your users are logging up or signing in through your website, you need to have a database to manage all that trivial data.
4. Testing and Maintenance:
At this stage, the web designer has completed the development of the website, and it is the time to test its functionality. The front end coding ad the back end coding gets integrated and here, through testing, they try to solve all the issues that arrive thereafter.
The primary focus is to ensure the website runs effectively at all the browser platforms and is optimized for each of the platforms. Secondly, designer tries to check the validity of the code i.e, your so developed site must meet correct web development standards.
5. Deployment and Testing Again:
After passing these mentioned tests, an FTP (File Transfer Protocol) program is used to upload the website files on server. Another option to host the website is to choose web hosting services, wherein you get a domain name upon registration and then you can upload your website to the server. The site is then put through one run-through to ensure that all the files are successfully uploaded.
A/B testing is a method of comparing two mock-ups of a webpage to know which performs better. The statistical results so obtained upon testing helps in determining which type of the webpage is working for you to get the desired conversion. This is also very helpful and necessary in making the website even more efficient and user-friendly.
In a Nutshell:
To make sure you do not miss on anything, we are attaching a flowchart of how to carry out the entire process of website development:
