Last updated on June 21, 2018

As we all know that developing a website is most important for your business and also, it is the important asset of your business. If you don’t have a website, you are losing your potential customer because most of the audience want to search online before purchasing anything.

But here we are not discussing the benefits of not having a website. But in this article, we are discussing what are the key factors that we need to keep in our mind at the time of developing a website.

Here is the checklist.

Checklist for website Development.

Which theme are you using?

Choosing A WordPress Theme

Most of the developer or designer use prebuild themes to develop a brand new website. They customize the themes and make a website according to your needs. So it is important to check that what theme they are using? Is it purchased from a reliable or trusted source or downloaded from a free source. Here I would like to recommend you that never ever use any paid theme for free. Because these can have the virus or malicious code within the theme files. So this can harm your website or users. There are lots of website creator available in the market. You can also try them.

Which hosting are you using?

Hosting plays a vital role when it comes to website design or development. Hosting is a web space where you store your website online. So before choosing a hosting company, always research the company. Never fall on heavy discounts or cheap rates. Check user reviews, their uptime, their speed and how much space they are giving you. One most important point, check out what they are using, SSD or HDD. I will recommend you to go with only the hosting provider which are using SSD for the storage. Because it is the latest technology and websites are stored in SSD loads fast.

Is it a responsive website?

In the era of the smartphone, having a website is not enough, but it should be mobile friendly. So whenever you develop a website, make sure it is fully responsive and mobile friendly. It is not only important for users perspective but it is also important for improving your search engine ranking. Because Google gives important to user-friendly and responsive websites.

Is it an SEO friendly website?

This is the most important factor in designing a website. Most of the web developer or designer just write the code to meet the requirements. Sometimes they use lengthy codes, inline CSS, too many Javascript and any other things which google hate a lot. So make sure, your website’s code is SEO friendly, neat and clean.

While Developing a Website Check Is it loading Fast?

Fast loading website not only important for users/customers but these are also important to improve your ranking on search engines. If your website is not loading fast or taking too much time to load on the slow connection, people abandon the operation and they move to other websites. It indicates that your website has no value and Google, outrank it from its search ranking. So it is important to have a fast loading website for growing your business.  Keep this vital point in mind while developing a website.

Is it has unique content or design?

There are lots of themes available in the market and you can install them on your server and just change the content or graphics with yours. And your website is ready to use. But it will not be able to attract visitors toward your website because it is 100% possible that that theme is used by hundreds of people and having the same design. So I will suggest you customize your theme and make it unique and impressive. Also, it should have unique content.

Eye-capturing graphics.

Yes, most important thing, your website should have eye-catching graphics. Always use either copyright free images or purchase from marketplaces like Shutterstock. You can find amazing eye-catching graphics there at very cheap rates.

Eye-catching color graphics not only enhance your website’s beauty but it also helps to engage users which is a positive signal to search engine.

Final Words.

At the end of the article, I would love to tell you that always use premium themes, eye-catching graphics and develop a fast loading website. There are many tools available in the market which can help you to develop an eye-catching website by just drag and drop elements.  Always keep the above points in mind while developing a website.
