Best Practices for Web Development Project

Web development process is not a one day task. It requires whole understanding, planning, execution and then corrections if there are any mistakes. Sometimes it becomes a headache with many points of view from different professionals working with the project. Despite the many points of view, web development professionals try their best not to make any mistakes because they know that a single mistake can turn out to be extremely costly in terms of time and money. In order to avoid these challenging situations there are certain guidelines for making this process secure and fruitful.

The best and successful web development processes don’t just start with the formation of the website; it starts long before that and it involves a number of steps. Firstly a contractual agreement must exist between the client and the web development team. The contract bears the clauses that show the rules and regulations and demands from both sides. The process should start when both the parties have mutually agreed to the contractual agreement. Then the next step is to determine what does the client have in mind? How should the website look like, as the client has better idea about the type of image they want to carry, the kinds of businesses they want to engage in and the mind set of their served customers.

After deciding the content and appearance of the site and discussing in detail as to who will be responsible for updating it, whether the company will take care of it in the future or they want the team of professionals to continue with this job, the next web development step is to decide the information to be displayed. The best approach here is to think about the website as a visitor rather than as a developer. In this way you would be able to measure the impact of information upon its viewer. Then the critical portion of the process comes: security. By security we mean authentication, authorization, privacy, accountability, integrity and monitoring. A properly secure website, where the user’s actions can be tracked down and unauthorized users are unable to access, creates no future problems for the company owning the website.

Next the website though secure should be user friendly, it should be very easy for the users to locate their desired options and switch freely from one page to another. It should not be so complicated that the user gets lost in it. The easier it is to use the more users will visit it. Then the website designers should run the testing of the website to ensure that it is functioning to its extent or not. In case of any mistakes and problems, they will be corrected before the website is published. for example failure to access a non secured portion of the website or complex navigation system, dull and bore theme or too catchy background, the client would be able to rectify the mistakes and the web development team would make corrections. Finally when the end product is ready then create a segment of feedback and comments in it. In this way it would be simpler for you to update you website.

If all these steps are kept in mind and followed then I am sure that the resulting website would create no legal or popularity issues.
