The Targets: What is the target of your website? Who do you want to reach with your website? Either potential customers, suppliers, or a population of a region or very specific demography.

The color codes, the logo, the graphic charter of your brand, the structure of the website, the animations, and all that will have a link with the graphics of the project. A graphic designing company will help you with this.
Establish the content: For content creation list all pages, sections, and subsections to the writer. Present them with a short description and it is preferable to write the texts and prepare the content of the website before passing the specifications to the service provider.

3.Choice of accommodation:
The choice of hosting plan depends on the type of your website. An ecommerce store needs a lot of storage space to store the many images on the product sheets. You, therefore, need a subscription for 500 GB hosting with a private SQL server. On the other hand, showcase websites do not need a lot of hard disk space or a large database. You can therefore choose a subscription for less expensive hosting.
For a website with a large audience, it requires a dedicated web server. Web hosting prices varies depend on specifications of the machine. At this level, it is preferable to consult a web expert to guide you on the choice of your dedicated server.
Do not hesitate to ask for advice on the choice of your accommodation.
- Graphic Design:
This step is the task of a web designer, during this process the graphic designer will design the website mockup according to your objectives and your specifications. This step gives your expectations a visual reality and gives a real impression of the progress of the project. Once the graphics files are finished and confirmed, they are sent to the developer for web integration.
This process is tricky because the graphics team must physically represent the client’s ideas. The aesthetics must meet the expectations of the customer, of course, but also of the Internet user.
- Development and Integration:
Now the programmers are involved in the development of the website! The web integrator transforms the graphic models into Html page. This process is carried out via lines of programming in CSS and HTML. The HTML language will structure the pages and CSS determines the colors for your website. The animations of your website are generally created during this step (Drop-down menu, Carrousel, etc.). The web integrator will also be in charge of making your website responsive: compatible with tablets and smartphones.
6.The Development of your website is accomplished by a good referencing:
