What Are Web Developers?

By Blog

A web developer is someone who specializes in writing application code for the World Wide Web.

The profile of such individual might be of your interest if you need to set up a web page for your business.

There are three important questions to ask when selecting a company to create your website or web application:

1.    How many years have they been in the industry?
2.    Do you have a developer on staff or do you outsource?
3.    Do I legally own the design and content of the website you’ll build for my company?

It is very important to discuss the experience of the company, and if the developer that will be working with you has previously built similar websites. This will help you understand the scope of your project, and how the selected company will assist you with the support you need.

A company that has an in-house development team might be crucial when signing a contract with someone to develop your website. Sometimes it is very difficult to transmit your ideas through e-mails or phone calls. So, it’s always a good idea to consider a company that has a staff with whom you can talk about your ideas and project goals.

Many companies may build your website; however, as soon as your hosting contract ends so does your website. Yikes! Firstly, it is very important to know if you’ll have a signed contract that states your legal ownership of the product (your website). Second, and most importantly, you must be clear if all the time, money, and work you’ve dedicated to your website can be transferred to a different hosting server.

Remember; when it comes to business you’ll never ask too many questions. Just make sure you’re asking the right ones!
