The Internet revolution has probed countless consumers to research and compare service providers and products online before purchasing. This has created urgency in businesses to develop a robust online presence. The best way to achieve this is to have a professionally designed website that is aesthetically pleasing, easy to navigate, and secure.
What are the Benefits of Having a Website for a Business?
- Greater Exposure: A well-outlined site can help the brand attract and retain more customers. Since the site is available 24x7, 365 days, it acts as a business advocate for the prospects even outside of office hours. It also allows customers worldwide to connect with the brand, overcoming geographical limitations.
- Brand Credibility: First impressions count! A website that is quick, responsive, and answers the clients' queries instantly boosts the company's credibility. The professional image built over the site separates the brand from its competitors. Customers also tend to trust businesses with a website more than labels without one!
- Creates Measurable Results: A site enables you to track the number of visitors and their exact location, which equips you with the knowledge of the target demographics. It also helps you determine the conversion rate by registering the ratio of the number of inquiries generated and the total number of visitors. With this information, businesses can implement various strategies to boost sales.
Apart from the above benefits, different websites serve different purposes based on the product and the intended audience. A brand must have a commanding web presence to achieve these benefits. The top web development companies can help simplify this task!
Web Design vs. Web Development: How Different Are They?
In this technological day and age, the terms "web development" and "web designing" are virtually interchangeable. However, the services offered by web design and development service providers form two radically different components of the website-building technique. Web designers and web developers must possess unique skill sets to upgrade the appearance and functionality of the site.
- Web Design: To build the layout and usability of the website, the top web designers employ various design applications such as Adobe Photoshop, Coreldraw, Dreamweaver, Frontpage, etc. Their primary responsibility is to develop an aesthetically pleasing site by focusing on the placement of the buttons, finding the ideal font style and color palette, maintaining visual and navigational consistency, etc.
Web developers adopt a logical approach, whereas web designers embrace the creative concept of site creation. Certain web development service providers offer decent design solutions to boost the site's appeal at an added cost. Still, to create a great site, brands must give equal significance to hiring top web design companies.
Why Should You Outsource to Web Development Company?
- Saves Time and Money: The services that the top web development companies offer save crucial time. Expert web application development companies are thorough in the structure of CSS, HTML, and other web development languages and, thus, can implement the concept better. Moreover, hiring web developers is more cost-effective than building an in-house team, as it eliminates additional infrastructure and staffing expenses.
- Search Engine Optimization: The success of a website depends on its visibility amongst prospects. A website that ranks higher on search engine result pages is more likely to generate traffic than its competitors in the industry. This feat is determined by search engine optimization. The professional web developers for hire employ the right web development tools to ensure the site is SEO-friendly.
- Website Compatibility: Prospects prefer visiting sites that are responsive across different browsers. The best web application development companies ensure the website's user-friendliness by making it compatible with multiple browsers and various devices. Web development framework specialists can effectively use different testing tools to ensure cross-browser compatibility in sites.
- Competitiveness: A professional web development team is up-to-date with the changing trends and technologies in the market. They can easily build a platform that gives a constant fight to competing businesses. The top web development services providers further ensure that the website is appealing to the viewers and offers easy-to-use functionality.
- Support: At times, the website might suffer inevitable setbacks after the website is life. To tackle this, most web development companies offer additional support during and after the site's formation. Whether there is a need to change the design of the web pages or its structure, hiring web developers simplifies the task.
What Are the Different Kinds of Web Developers We Can Find in the Industry?
There are three fundamental types of web developers: Front end web developers, Back end web developers, and Full-stack developers.
- Front End: The front-end developers are accountable for everything visitors see while navigating the site, such as the fonts, colors, dropdown menus, sliders, etc. The chief focus of the Front end developer is to enhance the look and feel of the website while discerning its behavior in different contexts.
- Back End: Back-end development typically refers to the site’s workings on the server, also known as “server-side.” The back end includes a server, an application, and a database. It is crucial while developing a dynamic web application as it constantly communicates with the front end, transmitting data displayed on the web page.
- Full Stack: Full Stack web development is the unification of front-end and back-end web development. Full-stack developers can responsibly handle the front end, back end, databases, servers, and systems engineering, as well as debugging of the web application.
A Full-stack developer must be adept in front-end and back-end languages and web development frameworks, with knowledge of basic algorithms, database and server technologies, and fundamental designing ability. The most Popular Stacks are:
- MEAN Stack: MongoDB, Express, AngularJS, and Node.js.
- MERN Stack: MongoDB, Express, ReactJS, and Node.js
- Django Stack: Django, Python, and MySQL as Database.
- Rails or Ruby on Rails: Uses Ruby, PHP, and MySQL.
- LAMP Stack: Linux, Apache, MySQL, and PHP.
How to Choose the Ideal Web Development Language?
There is a wide range of web development languages available in the industry. This can make it challenging to select the ideal language platform for the site.
However, certain factors are based on selecting the best language for web app development.
- Targeted Platform – Since not all web development languages are competent in working on every platform, it is vital to consider the platform where the program is intended to run. To illustrate, for a program to run on Windows and Linux-based systems, the codes must be written in C language.
- Flexibility and Performance – The language selected must be flexible enough to permit the computing of additional features or programs. Moreover, it must be efficient to make the language function fast.
- Project Size – Based on the project's requirements, clients must opt for the language that can assist the cause. Most web developers opt for languages that offer vast libraries to tackle coding obstacles.
- Tool support – Finally, opt for a tool-oriented language for web development that incorporates many elements and offers a straightforward approach to editing and controlling the work.
How Much Does It Cost to Build a Website?
The cost of developing a website depends on numerous factors, such as Page Volume, Custom Images and Graphics, Site Layout, Additional Services, and several others.
Size of the Project
- A simple website either includes specific functions or is a static one-page site. Such websites only require a domain name and web hosting services. A domain name typically costs around $15 per year, while web hosting costs about $96 annually ($8 per month.) Collectively, starting a site will cost somewhere between $120-$300.
- A medium website includes basic features such as catalogs of the products offered by the company, contact and quotation forms, search function, social media integrations, responsive design, etc. According to GoodFirms’ web design research, websites with core functionalities generally cost between $1000-$6000. This depends on the number of pages, additional plugins, and other highlights.
- Corporate Websites are rich in features and are usually custom-built depending on the client's requirements. These projects can go as high as $25000 to $30000 as they mainly rely on the site's coding to function properly. These sites also offer a large database to accumulate extensive data relayed by the visitors.
Experience & Location
The years of experience and the location of the web developer plays a significant role in determining the cost of the web development process.
- An experienced website designer from developed countries such as the USA, Canada, the UK, etc. will charge around $80 - $200/hour, whereas a developer based in developing countries, such as the Philippines, India, Ukraine, etc. will deliver the project in $35 - $75/hour.
- Contrarily, a lower-end developer in developed countries will work at $30 - $80/hour, while the developer from developing countries will charge somewhere between $20 - $25/hour for the same project.
Most web app development companies customarily allow several design revisions in the package. However, if more changes are required, the client might need to pay a surplus over the previously agreed price. If a company is solely looking for updates in the design of an existing site, the charges can be as follows:
- For repairing existing plugins or code issues, the developer charges around $30 - $550.
- Meanwhile, creating custom sliders, small widgets, accordions, etc., could cost an average of $500.
Most freelance web developers and web development agencies can be hired either on an hourly basis or a fixed price per-project basis. The decision about which payment model to opt for depends on the project length. Companies must analyze and compare different web development service providers and their quotations to find the ideal partner.
What Are the Skills Required in a Web Developer?
While exploring different web development companies, it can be laborious to discern the qualified candidate from the numerous web developers in the market. To save you this hassle, look out for the following web development skills while hiring the ideal service provider:
- Frameworks: Frameworks simplify the coding task by providing lists of standard functionality. The website developer should not only have experience with different frameworks but also be capable of choosing the right framework while building a specific type of website. For instance, to design complex user interfaces, JS frameworks are excellent.
- Testing: An expert web developer must be adept in testing for bugs during and after the deployment of the site. Inquire whether the developer is thorough in multiple testing methods, such as Functional Testing, Unit Testing, etc., to ensure a glitch-free web development framework.
- Analytics: Apart from developing a highly functional website, a developer possessing good analytical skills boosts the site's chances of generating massive profits. The developer must understand the industry, competitors, and target audience to curate a site that fulfills its objective.
- SEO: Search Engine Optimization is the driving factor behind modern-day marketing. Hire web developers having in-depth fundamental SEO skills such as page upload speed, domain credibility, and keyword content. This will help improve the website's ranking on SERPs, allowing prospects to find the brand.
What Questions to Ask the Web Development Agency Before Striking a Deal?
Before collaborating with a web development company, it is vital to address specific queries to ensure a smooth and straightforward web development process.
1. How Much Time Does It Take to Create a Website?
The timeframe for completing a web development project depends on the complexity and characteristics of the website. A single-page site can take a few hours or days to complete. A complex website comprising multiple web pages, elaborate features, plugins, and such could take weeks to months to complete.
2. Which Web Development Methodology is Utilized?
The web development process adopted by the company determines the success or failure of the project. The two most prevalent strategies are the Waterfall method and the Agile method.
A traditional waterfall approach follows a linear development pattern where each segment is coded sequentially. The transition from one plane to another occurs only once the previous stage is completed. For its successful implementation, formalized documentation is requisite. This makes the waterfall technique a better option for short-term projects.
Contrarily, Agilefollows an incremental and iterative approach. This process accommodates frequent changes throughout the development phase. Agile methodology ignores documentation and considers a working prototype a foundation for the user's assessment and feedback.
3. Which Technologies and Frameworks Are Used?
In the ever-growing tech realm, the top web developers for hire stay up-to-date with the latest technologies to ensure the final product developed is future-ready. Web development firms must utilize techniques that collaborate with each element of the designing and development phase. This includes incorporating web development languages that can support front-end and back-end development and offer an efficient framework for the website. An exceptional team of web developers will further ensure that the backend is user-friendly and practical for the in-house team.
4. How Many Years of Experience Do They Have in This Industry?
Analyzing the web development firm's contribution to the market is imperative. Request them to provide their portfolio, which should outline their past work, the type of websites they have worked on, the number of projects they have accomplished, and the years they have worked in this field. Businesses can additionally refer to third-party research and review platforms, such as GoodFirms, to further ascertain the quality of the web development service provided by examining the genuine feedback and ratings of previous clients.
5. Will the Site Be Responsive?
Responsive design ensures that the website's layout is consistent across every device, whether computers, phones, or tablets, irrespective of screen size, platform, and orientation. Since responsive web design improves the user experience, user engagement is expected to increase simultaneously. Moreover, website features such as responsive web design and mobile-first indexing are indispensable factors in boosting SERP rankings and decreasing bounce rates.

Moreover, verify if they test Use Cases to identify and rectify vulnerabilities. Finally, investigate whether they have previously encountered security threats and what steps they have taken to counter them. It is also vital that the web development agency offers support post-deployment.
