Development Revolution

Over the years, millions of pounds have been spent on websites that do nothing, give nothing, and create no business for their owners. Ninety percent of all the websites, on the World Wide Web, are just taking up space, not being developed or even visited. This I believe, is due to the uneducated attitude taken by companies, who have allowed web design companies, to build, develop and control the web sites for them. 

In the past, one of the biggest hurdles, to cross in web development, was certainly, the ability to add, update or change content. The web company or designer, who builds the site, seems to be in control, and wants to own your website forever, and you can’t change, or update anything, without their permission, or paying more money. Owning and building a website for your company, is no different from any other part of your business, and I am sure you don’t ask Mercedes, every time you want to drive your company car. 

The basics are simple, you require a domain name, and hosting, which is a server that holds your data, from where it can be accessed by the web. The content and design, is your business, and employing someone, to assist, withthis, is not a bad thing, but it does not mean, it belongs to them forever, imagine if you couldn’t change your car when you wanted, and you were stuck with the same model for the rest of your life.

I have helped create and build sites in many industries and, this has happened to me, The Company has paid a lot of money for something, which after a while really becomes more of a problem to develop than an advantage to the business. When building a website these days consider, these factors before you employ a company, to assist and make sure you own everything, and have access via a CMS, “Content Management System”; to what is clearly, your website.
