How to choose the right Web Development Company?

Factor in all the costs

Beyond the initial design and development costs, there are ongoing charges and fees that should be understood prior to signing the contract.

1. Hosting

In most cases, you get what you pay for and that means site uptime — you want your site to be available all the time, not just some of the time. Nearly every web development company charges something for hosting a website, but even this can vary widely.

2. On-Going Support

Again, this is an area where pricing is all over the board. It’s important to understand that you will make changes to your website and there is likely to be a cost.

Attention to details

Recently, someone in my network announced the launch of their new website. I could tell from their post they were excited and proud of their new online presence. Here’s an opportunity to shine on social media!

Determine the level of support do you need

A good development company is going to provide you with the tools to add update content, add new pages, and articles, and make minor updates. With website support, you’ll likely need changes to your site on a regular basis. And more importantly, a website is not, nor should be static.

Determine your compatibility

Get to know who you are hiring for this long-term relationship. While the quality and efficacy of their work is surely a consideration, find out what they value, how they work, and how they treat their staff.

Determine what type of website you need

Google is a website. But it’s powered by a multibillion-dollar infrastructure with several data centers around the globe. Are you going to sell widgets?
