Web Design Checklist
What You Will Need for Your New Website
Here are some of the things you will need for your new website:
A domain name
If you wish to register your domain name yourself, you can go to Network Solutions or Register.com (or any other site that will register domain names) and purchase your domain name online using a credit card. Please write down all user names and passwords you select and then forward that information to us. Also, please forward to us copies of ALL correspondence you receive from the organization that registered your domain name. If you need help, contact us at 773-755-2536 or email us.
A hosting company
We can recommend a hosting company if you don't have one in mind. Hosting for most sites will cost around $12/month.
Email address list
Please provide us with a list of email addresses that you would like to have in connection with the website.
In addition to the above, please provide us with copies of any relevant printed material that you currently use to represent and advertise your company, especially items displaying logos and your company's color scheme. Please provide us with copies of any and all images that you would like to appear on the website.
Please provide us with a digital version of your logo. If you are not sure which format to send us, please send us ALL formats that you have available.
If you have not yet had a logo developed, see common logo design mistakes before you select a logo designer.
Know your goals
Many clients find it helpful to fill out the following questionnaire before their first meeting, so as to clarify what they hope to accomplish with their website.
