What type of website do you need?

Friends, Hi Again.

Just yesterday, I met one of my client who was very upset with his previous web designing company. Having known the reason behind the same, I understood anybody in his place would have become upset and take a decision of never to make a website again.

Will summarise you,
My client decided to make a website in month of June'12. He is having a business of shipping and logistic. What he needed was just 6 pages website with links like, about us, our services, our clients, contact us etc. The previous company billed him worth Rs.30000/- and gave him the CMS (Content Managemen System) for services and clients page. Till date his website is not built, and it remains incomplete inspite of client giving all the details requested by that company. When I asked him, why he opted for CMS based, he said, he don't know what is CMS, nor he knows what is admin panel, he just know one thing that he will have the website with CMS which is as per new web designing style or trend.

Friends, all website owners or all entrepreneurs who currently don't have a website but will soon have a website, I want all of you to know few things which will help you to understand the designer's language and also help you to be firm on your stand if you are right.

1. Static Website / Static page:
    Web designing company often uses this word. So you need to know what is static page or website. First understand the word static, static means in general terms is "immovable", but in website designing, this term is used for content part. Static page is a page in which content is "not changeable" by the website owner. In case website owner feels the need to change the content then he has to depend on the designer or developer of the website. 

Static website means the content of all the pages in the website is "not changeable".

 Is it advisable to have static pages on the website?

Ofcourse, there are few pages on our website which don't change every now and then. Like, contact us page, we change our address very rarely. Its not something which you have to edit or update on daily or monthly basis. 
For, every page on your website, just give 2 mins and decide, is the content on this page going to change very frequently? And if you get the answer as "NO" then make that particular page a static page.

2. Dynamic website / Dynamic page:
    The word dynamic in terms of web designing in "changeable". The content of this dynamic page can be changed by the website owner himself without depending on the designer or developer. Whenever website owner needs to change the content, he can do it all by himself from the password protected back office given to him.
When should we have a dynamic page?

Sometimes, the content of the one or two pages changes very frequently. Take an example of small Jewellery shop owner's website. What will he have in his website is Home, About us,  Products, Contact us
Out of four links, 3 can remain static (home, about us and contact us) while one link (Products) needs to be dynamic. Because, whenever we show the products on the website, it should be actually available in the shop. If customer founds the difference between the products on the website and actual products in the shop, we are tend to lose our customer. So, we need to immediately update on the website that "No stock available" or "Stock available". Also, if we got some new jewellery in shop then also, it should be updated on the website.

So, any page for which the content will change frequently should be made as a dynamic page.

3. CMS Website (Content Management System):
CMS is content management system. CMS based website means website in which all the pages content can be changed from back office. Not only content, the link, the images, the interface, color of text, background color etc can be managed using CMS.

 A content management website (alternatively, content managed website or CM website) is a website which has the additional capability allowing users to manage the website content easily, without interfering with other aspects of the site.

A Content Management System is a software tool used by both technical and non-technical staff to manage the creation of structured web pages for a web based experience such as an Internet Website, Intranet or Extranet solution.

4. Links:
Though this word seems to be simple, I have seen, many people confused between number of links and number of pages. Friends, please understand what is a single page on website for you is the link for the designer. 

5. Domain, URL and Hosting:
This is another very important terminology used by any web designing company. Its not something complicated for anybody to not understand. I will try explaining you this in very simple language.

Domain is the name of the website. For example: yahoo, rediff, webtelindia, indiatimes are the names of the website.
URL is the address of the website that needs to be entered in address bar of browser. For yahoo the url is www.yahoo.in, for rediff the url is www.rediff.com or for webtelindia the url is www.webtelindia.com.

So, decide what name you want for your website, once you decide your name, decide what url you would prefer for example url's can be: www.yourwebsitename.com, www.yourwebsitename.org, www.yourwebsitename.in, www.yourwebsitename.net etc.

Hosting

While web pages are designed and developed on a single computer, they must be transferred to a server, or host, so that they are available to the rest of the world over the Internet. 
A host is simply a computer (or server) that has a constant, high speed connection to the Internet 24/7/365.  In other words, "A web hosting service is a type of Internet hosting service that allows individuals and organizations to provide their own website accessible via the World Wide Web. Web hosts are companies that provide space on a server they own or lease for use by their clients as well as providing Internet connectivity, typically in a data center."


Hope, all the above concepts explained here are easy to understand. In case you still have any doubts, just drop a mail to me, I will be pleased to reply you. You can mail your queries to info@webtelindia.com
