Website Design Dubai
Designing a website today has come a long way from its humble beginning in the 1990’s. The tools and languages used have been transformed and the capabilities and functionality available to create websites today are astounding. Here at Intrinsic Advantage, we understand what it takes to make great website design Dubai. As a company we provide a full end-to-end service for helping you conceptualise, design, develop and deploy sophisticated and powerfuil websites.
Websites are now critical elements of any marketing and sales strategy and should be fully integrated into the overall communications and marketing plan for a company.
E-commerce is becoming more and more common in the UAE and the big guns have moved in with the likes of Amazon entering the market. There are amazing opportunities in this region for existing retailers, startups, and other organizations to exploit.
The keys to great website design that also generates a lot of business are:
- Create great, regular, original content that is relevant to your readers.
- Optimize content for the search engines such as google (without compromising on the above)
- Design for ease of use. Make sure that it is very simple for people to order your products and services.
There are hundreds, if not thousands of tools out there for building websites and it’s important to choose the correct one. Before we discuss the tools let’s talk about how a website works.
Every website has a unique address on the internet which is a sequence of numbers that computers can understand but is meaningless to a human. In order to address this, every website has a domain name that is a friendly way of identifying it. So, for example, this website has the domain name www.intriniscadvantage.com because that is the name of the company behind it. This is an easy to read address that can be stored and recalled at any time.
Choosing a domain name is important and Intrinsic Advantage’s website design Dubai services will help you.
In order for a website to be viewed by the public, it must be hosted on a web server. When a website is created it consists of a set of files that includes code, media, and configuration information. All of these files must be uploaded to a web server via a hosting platform so that the site is available for viewing by the public. There are thousands of hosting companies available, the largest includes, Hostgator, Yahoo, Power, Bluehost, IX web hosting, Lunapages, and Godaddy. If it’s important for your data to be held in the UAE then there are also local hosting companies in the UAE. A search on google will allow you to find these quickly.
Intrinsic Advantage will advise you on the best hosting and domain name providers which will depend upon your requirements.
