Customised Websites

Steps to your website

As a general rule, the following steps are what you and I will need to go through to get your website up and running.

This can sometimes be done within a single day.

  1. You need to think about how you want your website to look (graphics), logos, colours etc.,
  2. Either you or I organise hosting, and send the details (username, password) to me,
  3. Either you or I organise a domain name (or two, or three…)
  4. The domain name(s) need to be ‘pointed’ at the hosting, if the domain wasn’t organised as part of the hosting (combining steps 1 and 2), and either you or I can do that,
  5. I (can) maintain all your hosting options, creating email addresses for you to use,
  6. I install WordPress on the hosting, create the database, and configure WordPress according to your needs and wants,
  7. I install appropriate WordPress Themes and Plugins depending on your needs and wants,
  8. I create extra user(s) for you to sign on to the WordPress “dashboard” back office area,
  9. You create the web pages you want, and enter the content, pictures and videos that you want to appear on your website,
  10. When you’re happy with what you’ve got, I’ll invoice you,
  11. You pay me and have full control of your website! You don’t need me any more!
  12. If you need/want anything done that you don’t know how to do, then contact me to discuss,
  13. If you need/want additional functionality, then contact me to discuss,
  14. If I’m not available for whatever reason, then contact another competent developer, it’s a WordPress site!
