All great websites have been built on great web design. Building a website without designing the website first, is like building a house without any architect plans; the design determines how you build the website. Discover more about web design here.
Having wireframed the website (planned the pages, layout, interaction and flow) as part of the design and UX (user-experience) process, considered the website's objectives and anticipated your users' requirements, we can ascertain the most suitable platform on which to build your website.
Depending upon the scope and functionality of the website, some platforms will be better suited than others. Do you need a CMS (content management system), a client or customer service portal, intranet or e-commerce website? These are some of the considerations that will dictate the best website platform for your needs.
