Our Web Development Process


Web Development Process details:


1. Initial Meeting

We would normally have a meeting, say hi, get to know each other. This is the first of many important steps to creating the website you want.


2. Consultation

Sometimes we have some kind of consultation or brain storm. This sometimes happens in the initial meetings depending on how enthusiastic you are.


3. Agreement and Deposit

After you're happy with the idea of working with us, and we understand what you want we draft a proposal outlining what we think are the deliverables and cost of the project. You'll need to make sure we've not miss-understood you and that you are happy with our terms and the cost of the project. Once this document is finished and signed off we move into the production phase.


4. Wireframes

To help nail down the structure of the website, we create visual organigrams of your future website. We normally do a few of these, on paper.


5. Content Audit

Content is the most important part of your website, and you are the experts in your field and we'll advise you on how what you want to communicate will best be implemented in the designs.


6. Design

Once the content and wireframes are finished, we will start designing the web interface and sub pages of your website.


7. Changes

When we present each and every design, you have the opportunity to change your mind and tweak what we have presented. Your proposal will explain how many rounds of changes are budgeted for.


8. Design approval

Once you get that happy feeling when you look at your website designs, we will need you to approve the designs. Once the designs are approved, coding can begin.


9. Coding

Once we start coding your website, we normally become quiet and keep our heads down. We will start coding the front-end (XHTML, CSS, PHP, ASP, etc), then start with the back-end (Database) development (if any).


10. Web Preview

Once we are done with all the nerdy coding, we will present your website on a proof link for you to navigate and check for mistakes and ask for corrections and changes.


11. Final Payment

Once we upload the website to your server hosting, we are effectively giving you the keys to a brand new car. So before we do that, we'll need to get paid.


12. Activation

We make your website live, hopefully with no glitches!


13. Maintenance

If your site is not properly managed it will become ineffective, and more importantly, customers will stop clicking. Bit-Hoster offers website maintenance services because we know that companies get busy and don't have the time or technical resources to complete certain projects.Consistent web maintenance programs will keep your site new, up to date and refreshing. These enhancements give your customers a reason to come back and will improve your opportunities of gaining their business and interest in the future.


14. Monitoring

By 24/7 monitoring will ensure that your sites are live and responding.Our system monitoring will send out alerts when pages or parts of a website malfunction, which allows the webmaster to correct issues faster.Our Security monitoring will verify your a domain (and web site) is not only responding properly, but has not been hacked, blacklisted or hijacked.
