A website is a collection of web pages that can be accessed through internet connection. All the pages share a common domain name and in some or the other way related to each other. Computer languages like Java, HTML, SQL and many others can be sued for designing a site. In simple words, a person who has an expert hand and in-depth knowledge in one or more system languages can only become a site developer.
The idea of designing a site is that all the content including write-ups and multimedia should be made available online and thus become accessible to users for various needs. Every website is designed to meet a particular goal; some are ecommerce sites, some are based on educational information or institutions, some belong to the corporate, some display hospitals and their services, many are news and entertainment sites, and so on. Depending upon the content and type of website, its aim is decided and thus its audience type is also specified. The number of clicks on a site is counted as the action performed, out of which fruitful actions are counted through various parameters. The success of the site lies in fulfilment of its aim through the efficiency of the parameters that decide the fruitfulness of actions performed.
It is always important to make your site designer and programmer understand the motto of creating it. He/She should know what kind of designs and multimedia would suit the purpose and attract viewers. Also, the content arrangement in proper manner matters a lot so that the viewer is not confused or irritated. All the pages should be connected to each other systematically. One should be able to jump on proper hyperlinks given on the homepage; the information given on first page should be continued on the second page and so on. In many cases, the content given in simple and straight-forward language is appreciated as it can be understood by the maximum number of people. So, the designer should convey such requirements to the content management team. Market trends, competitive ideas, up-to-date information and other such relevant factors make the site more accessible and popular.
Every website has a feedback column and customer support service somewhere on a page. The feedback of the viewers should be read thoroughly so that the good and bad are clear and further improvements could be welcomed. The designer should keep in mind the queries of the viewers and then try to incorporate features that meet those requirements. This is because the success of any online/offline business lies in the extent of customer satisfaction. The designers hired need to be efficient enough to modify their skills with changing time because technology keeps on expanding, and therefore online requirements expand proportionally.
