A modern website has to fulfill a number of requirements:
1) an appealing design
2) can be accessed by smart phone, tablet and PC
3) must be secure
Web technologies are changing fast and it is important a web site uptodate. These days we are using Content Management
Systems (CMS). A CMS is like the common chassis used for several different car models. It contains all the technical
features required. To make it distinctive we add different designs – sometimes called “themes”.
Content Management Systems (eg WordPress, Joomla, Drupal etc) are used by many people/companies and well maintained.
This translates into IT security and protects the development investment.
Another advantage of Content Management Systems is that many companies offer themes (design) which are suitable to
view a web site using smart phone, tablet computer and PC. Such a responsive design displays the content for smart phones
and tablets, PCs differently.
Web- and Mail Hosting
Once we have completed the website we want to make it available to anybody. Therefore it must be on a server which is
always connected to the internet via a static IP address. In addition you need to register a suitable domain name.
