Web Design and Hosting
In addition to our on-site technical experience, we also have the ability to design and build you a website that fits you and its goals.
There are many steps in designing and developing a web site. From gathering information, to the creation of your web site, and also regular maintenance to keep your web site current. The first thing in designing a web site is to gather information.
As your web designer, I will start off by asking a lot of questions to help understand your business and your needs. Using the information gathered, I will put together a plan for your web site which is called a sitemap. The sitemap is a list of all main topics of the site. This serves as a guide as to what content will be on the site, and is essential in developing the navigational system.
The next step is to determine the look and feel of your site. You will be asked to look at examples of various themes/templates that coincide with the platform that you choose, such as Wordpress.
Once the look and feel is agreed on, now it is time to create the web site. This is typically done by first developing the home page, followed by a somewhat universal template for the interior pages.
After the web site is created then different things are tested, such as the functionality of forms, as well as testing for any compatibility issues such as viewing differences on all web browsers and different operating systems.
The primary purpose of website hosting is to let an individual or business plan and design a website and allow it to be accessed on the Internet by the world at large.
Web hosting services work by storing your website files in high-powered computers (web servers) connected to a very fast network. When someone types in your web address (such as www.rampaul.com), the Internet connects to the web server holding your website files and then transfers your website information back to their computer. From there they can surf and view the pages of your website.
The fact that having a web presence allows users to interact with individuals and businesses makes website hosting practically a necessity. When you make a website and want other people to see it, you will need to publish (or upload) it with a web hosting service.
Web hosting, as it is typically known, encompasses many services relating to making your website available to the entire Internet. That umbrella of services can, but doesn't always, include email accounts, security, site speed, website applications, etc. Our hosting services include all of this and more.
If you are in need of a place to host your website, or you are not satisfied with your current hosting situation, I can host your domain and website on a reliable and powerful server. You will have plenty of room for all your web pages, you will be able to have a number of email addresses, and different applications will be available for your use.
Raven's Cosmic Portal
This is a fairly simply coded HTML website that was totally refurbished. Width and table adjustments were made throughout the entire site, new pages added, and many new videos were made. Very colorful!
Built from scratch, this website uses stylesheets to add color to links and more. It has many pages, but was designed with efficient navigation in mind.
Healing Through Imagination
This is the first WordPress site that I have installed for a client. I did some modification to the theme. This site is hosted on my server.
