6 Main Stages Of Website Design Process
In my previous article, I have talked about some of the facts that you need to know about some of the elements of a good website design. In this article, I want to look at the six main stages of the website design process. Follow me as we are going to look at these stages together in this article.
#1 Determine website objectives
First and foremost, before you write your first code for the website, there is a need for you to determine your website objective. You do not have to just create a website, you need to know the reason why you are creating the website. There is a need for you to understand your website audience. When you understand your audience, you will be able to understand their expectation for the website. This will assist you in coming up with a website that meets the need of your stakeholders.
#2 Develop strategy and choose technology
After you might have been able to ascertain what your end users are expecting from the website, you need to come up with a blueprint that will enable you to deliver on the objective. There is a need for you to consider the available alternatives as far as developing your website is concerned. This will allow you to consider some of the positive and negative aspects of the website. You will be able to decide whether you have the manpower to support the technology that you have decided to go with.
#3 Develop interface
After you might have decided on the technology that you are going to go with as well as how the website will be implemented, you need to now start coding and developing the website. This is covered in two main areas. You need to consider the development of the website and the creation of unique content that you are going to place on the website. This is what you are going to use to engage your audience and increase the conversion rate on the website.
#4 Test website
After you might have created the website, there is a need for you to test the website in order to be sure that all elements of the website are working the way they supposed to work. You need to confirm whether the pages are resolving to the right landing pages. You also need to consider the website links as well. You have to be sure that all the links, as well as categories on the website, are resolving to the right website as well.
#5 Host website
After you might have tested the links and the pages on your website, you need to now decide on the hosting site where your website will be hosted. In one of my articles, I have highlighted some of the factors that you should consider when you need to choose the right type of hosting company to go with.

#6 Maintain website
The last stage that you need to consider in your website design process is to plan on how you are going to maintain the website. When it comes to maintaining the website, you need to consider two options. You can decide to handle the maintenance of the website in-house, you can also decide to contract a third party to maintain the website on your behalf. Most times also, the technology you have deployed for the website will determine whether you can maintain it in-house or you hand it over to a third party company.
