- know the main purpose of your website: service promotion, providing information to visitors, products selling, etc.;
- define what you are going to gain from the site and what you want to accomplish: your goals (make money, share information);
- detect the target audience: try to imagine the “ideal” person who will visit your site (age, sex, interests); this will help you when you’ll be choosing content for your site.
Make a Plan
This is a second but very important stage. It’s time for writing site map (a list that includes the main topics and sub-topics). Designers and developers select the main tools that will be used for building your site depending on its purpose and target customers.
Designers of your website are preparing images of layout, interface, etc. and send you possible variants to choose the most suitable one. On this step specialists are guided by the idea of “ideal” visitor. For example, if your website will provide information for women it should have an appropriate template, maybe something in pink colors, feminine, glamour and light; in case if you aim to make something for businesses try minimalist style with classic elements, etc. Don’t forget about company logo to identify it on the site.
This is a time for implementation of chosen techniques on practice and finally development of the website. Usually everything starts with creation of the Home Page. Developers follow the main navigational structure for the site – the shell for interior. On this stage you still can make and corrections or additional changes.

Web designers use FTP or CMS to upload files into the website, index it and ensure that site operates correctly and users can visit it through the various browsers.
Creation and launching the website is only beginning. Whether you ordered development of the website or made it by yourself you need to update the content frequently, add some information or make corrects. Most of designers will be happy to continue work with your site. If you aim to increase the search engine ranking you better hire SEO-optimizer, copywriter, etc.
