What is the difference between Web Development and Web Design?
While the terms are often used interchangeably, they
are completely different skill sets. Web design is
all about designing the look and feel of a website
that makes a great first impression for your visitors.
The “design” is the graphic representation of the
website and includes things such as color scheme,
layout, navigation, content placement and more.
Web development, on the other hand, brings the graphic
representation, or “design”, of the website to life
by means of coding and programming files. Both the
programming of files and the coding are used to create
these web pages and deploy the functionality of the
website. Web development can also include applications,
functions, and database programming that will power
your website and improve user experience.
What do you use to code?
Hyperlinks Media uses the latest technologies to
ensure your website will always be up to date with
the latest trends and best practices. Some of the
languages we use include: HTML5, JQuery, PHP5, MySQL,
JSON, XHTML, XML, just to name a few.
When does the web development phase start?
The website development process starts as soon as
you approve your website “design”. Our web developers
will take your design and bring it to life by coding / programming
the website files and web pages. Part of this phase
can also include database programming.
How long does it take to develop?
Since we custom code your website to your specifications,
development time depends on the functionality you
have requested. More complex development such as
admins, CMS or SAAS can obviously take much longer
than more simplistic websites. On average, without
a CMS or SAAS, website development is relatively
quick and usually takes 1 to 2 weeks.
Do you provide web development updates and maintenance?
We sure do! Many of our clients have been with us
for over 10 years and we continue to provide them
ongoing maintenance. The best part of our maintenance
is that we bill in small 15 minute increments, so
quick updates are very affordable. For clients with
large numbers of continuous updates, we can provide
a convenient monthly maintenance package.
Do you provide free web development consultations?
We sure do! Contact us for an over-the-phone or in-office
free web development consultation. If you’re in the Houston
area, please schedule an in-office meeting. We love
getting to know our clients in person!
Once developed, do you provide SEO?
SEO marketing is our SPECIALTY! Once we complete
your web development project, we can provide you
powerful SEO to get your business LEADS! It’s important
to start your SEO during the web development process
as it can save you a lot of cost in SEO “setup fees”
since a lot of the SEO setup can be performed during
the web development process.
Is your web development team in Houston?
Yes! Our entire team is located right here in Houston, Texas.
We do not outsource overseas (many of our clients
came to us based on terrible experiences with overseas project situations).
All of our client projects are performed “in-house”.
Your project will NEVER be sent overseas.
Why trust Hyperlinks Media for my web development?
It’s simple. We have been CUSTOM developing websites
for 20 years! Many so-called “web developers” throw
together a wordpress website with tons of plugin
that do not function to your exact specifications
and are highly vulnerable to malware. That’s because
they do not know how to code from the ground up.
Hyperlinks Media’s Houston web development team is
highly skilled at coding and programming a website
that functions to your exact specifications. In addition,
we will provide you excellent customer service. Our
5 star Google reviews and 5 BBB Awards prove it!
