By building a website with HTML, CSS and PHP, just about anything is possible. Some examples of the type of web site development I can do for you...
For instance; custom PHP Form Scripts are needed to do things like:
As a whole, the process of web design can include conceptualization, planning, producing, post-production, research, advertising. The site itself can be divided up into pages. The site is navigated by using hyperlinks, which are commonly blue and underlined but can be made to look like anything the designer wishes. Images can also be hyperlinks.
A Web Page Validator is a validator program that checks your websites' individual pages against the web standards.
When using a validator to check HTML, XHTML or CSS documents, the validator returns a list of errors found, according to your chosen standard.
To see how this validation process works; simply click on this W3C banner to the right and this page will be checked for XHTML errors. If any errors are found; it will report a comprehensive list of each error found.
Online resumes are becoming more efficient. Online resumes are, hands down, much more efficient than their paper counterpart. In fact, 60% of Fortune 100 companies use the professional platform LinkedIn as a way of saving time while researching candidates.
The idea of building a personal resume Web site is alluring because it goes beyond the one- or two-page resume. After all, where else does a job seeker have virtually unlimited space to tout details about specific skills and qualifications?
Arts, engineering, architecture, communications and other occupations in which job seekers need to show examples of past work, creating a resume Website is a phenomenon that will continue to grow. In those kinds of professions and occupations, it will become a very common thing. Some people are finding it is easier to build their portfolio out on a Website than bringing it with them to an interview.
There are many commercial and open source (free) eCommerce solutions available for you to be able to create your online store.
I can answer and offer suggestions to all of these solutions. Besides building a eCommerce store for you, I can take care of other aspects such as setting up a secure certificate and help you understand merchant accounts and payment gateways.
A Few things you need to consider when building a new eCommerce website:
Web analytics is the measurement, collection, analysis and reporting of internet data for purposes of understanding and optimizing web usage.
Web analytics is not just a tool for measuring website traffic but can be used as a tool for business research and market research, as well as a means to determine and improve upon the effectiveness of a web site. Web analytics applications can also help companies measure the results of traditional print advertising campaigns. It helps one to estimate how traffic to a website changes after the launch of a new advertising campaign. Web analytics provides information about the number of visitors to a website and the number of page views. It helps gauge traffic and popularity trends which is useful for market research.
I will be able to provide excellent customer support after the initial design and development phase even if the new website is not hosted on my servers. However, if I host the website myself; I will have greater access to the tools needed to monitor your sites web analytics and of course access to the never ending design modification..
Most modifications (Especially text related) are done without any additional fees. New features, additional pages, or web development modifications will incur additional charges.
Search Engine Optimization is the process of continuously improving your website. This improves your ranking in search engines like Google, Bing, Yahoo, etc., The closer you show up on the top of the search engine results pages (SERPs), the more likely a person will click on the link to come to your site.
Five important things that that can improve your website for Search Engines are:
Most small business web hosting companies offer a MySQL database as a free service included in your hosting package. So, for most small businesses, MySQL is a logical choice to develop your database driven website.
I have been working with MySQL databases for the past 7 years. So, whether you want to do something simple like store form data in a database, or build a shopping cart solution, MySQL will have the features needed to set up a database driven website quickly and easily.
Many people contact me saying that they need a website, but have no idea of what they need beyond their wish to have a website... I can help answer your questions and help you make the best decisions for your project.
I will answer any questions (Free, unless you have some very in-depth need) that you have about the process of how to create a website, using custom, open source or even commercial software options and then; quickly give you a ballpark figure on what you should expect to spend for your website.
Mobile Websites are made to fit perfectly on mobile products (IOS Devices)... It seems like everybody has a smart phone these days. This means that more and more people are turning to these mobile devices to do things that they would normally do on their desktop or laptop, like checking and sending Email and viewing web content. That's why it's almost a must now to pay more attention to how your website looks on mobile devices. Yes, this does just add one more thing to the list of ways that a user and/or business must communicate their company/personal information and this will also add additional costs for the additional times involved in the website design.
I offer both 'Fast' & 'Reliable' web hosting packages and development packages to my clients.
I offer many (customized) packages that range from web hosting only, to monthly website maintenance and ongoing Search Engine Optimization reviews.
I will gladly customize a specific package to fit your personal needs.
