Alright, you want a website for your business ... so where do we start?
Firstly you are going to have to look for a designer who can develop the type of website you require.
Now searching can be quite difficult because:

1) There are a lot of web designers out there that offer different packages with different prices!
So who do you choose?

2) You have heard of, and are aware that there are plenty of freelance web designers out there that rip people off! IE: They are quick to take your money but do not deliver the goods they promised!
Who do you trust?

3) Their Portfolio simply does not convince you to take on their services.

So by taking these 3 factors into consideration - this certainly does look like a difficult task! ... But there is an easier solution to conquer the quest of finding yourself a web designer that you can trust, and feel comfortable with - hopefully without blowing a hole in your pocket at the same time.
The solution is to contact the web designers clients. Ask them what the web developers service is like! Ask them questions to give the answers you need for you to decide who you are going to take on!

But your Search for a Designer is over ...
Since you are reading this ... you can now relax because your search for a web designer is most likely over. Us, Miniwebs provides South Africa an excellent web design, SEO & Hosting service for all types of business. We are experienced, affordable, quick, efficient and good at what we do!

  4. AN OVERVIEW OF HOW WE WORK & THE SERVICES WE OFFER! ~  
Miniwebs South Africa is an experienced web design company and we always takes pride in our work. We don't just design websites for our clients because its our job ...we also design websites because we enjoy it, and we strive to make an unbelievable web design portfolio, that we can be proud of!

What we look at when we design your company/business a website:

We look at Domain names, Web Design, Presentation, Meta Tags (Search Engine Optimization), Hosting as well as making sure you are happy with what we have developed, BEFORE you pay! When you read below, you will notice how much we take Search Engines into consideration.

Domain Names:
First thing we do is look for an appropriate / logical / suitable Domain Name for your businesses website. We will tip you on what we think is the best Domain Name for you, always keeping in mind that keywords in domain names are very important regarding search engines! We will always recommend .co.za domain names, simply because this is South African related, but we do also register.com domain names. Once you have chosen your Domain Name, we will then go ahead and register the name upon your approval, so that it is secure with us and cannot be registered by someone else, while we are in progress, developing your website.

Web Design:
Miniwebs South Africa makes sure that your web design has a good layout. A good layout means that your website will be user friendly, more compatable and easy for "spiders" from search engines, to crawl your website and pick up the nessecary keywords and information. We do not use frames or flash presentation in our web design simply because its known to "block" "spiders" from reading further into your websites text information.So Miniwebs South Africa only does static web design. A high number of tables within tables is also not a good idea for web design. Why? ... because, search engine "spiders" battle to access text information thats "deep" within those tables. Miniwebs South Africa, of course makes sure that our web design does not have that problem.

Presentation:
Miniwebs South Africa, always urges clients to send high quality / professional, if not, at least decent looking photo's of their business to make their web design / website have that attraction that their business deserves. Good photo's makes a website look Good. Bad photo's (over exposed / under exposed / poor quality photo's) will definitly bring down your websites presentation a lot. We do touch up photo's clients send us, for a better presentation for their web design, but theres 'so much' one can do to a photo.
Whats great about hosting with Miniwebs South Africa, is that if you would like to replace photo's on your website with improved ones, we will do this service for free. See Hosting below for more details and our web design package on our services page.

Meta Tags (Search Engine Optimization / SEO)
Miniwebs South Africa
web design company, makes sure that each of our website designs are fully Search Engine Optimized! Ranking on the 1st page is everyones goal, although obtaining this page rank is something all designers cannot guarentee on any search engine. Reason being is because hundreds of website are been indexed and crawled daily ... all wanting top position on the search engine rankings, so there is a lot of tough competition out there.
But, the key to meta tags is to cleverly phrase your keywords to match what your target market would type in search engines to find the product/service you provide.
When Miniwebs South Africa develops your website, the first thing we do is full in the meta tags: TITLE, DESCRIPTION, KEYWORD meta tags...
and once we are finished with your web design development... we then go through your website again, to fill in all the other nessecary meta tags, links that help with ranking on search engines.

Hosting:
Hosting with Miniwebs South Africa, has its benefits, where we do changes to basic information on your website (photo's, text, rates, and other minor changes) for no charge - only of course, if you host your website with Miniwebs South Africa. Please visit services page for prices and more information.

All in all, Miniwebs South Africa Web Design company provides an exellent, helpful, speedy, professional and affordable service to all new and existing clients.

Therefore it is important to understand your maximum 'capacity' levels when taking on an ASP company. This is what determines your final costs - Bandwidth! fast modems can transfer approx. 57,000 bits per second. Streamline video/ video clips require approx. 10,000,000 bits per second.

CSS STYLE SHEETS
CSS Style is usually used in websites, if a web designer wants a specific format/appearance/text/style for certain sections of a website.

This is most commonly used by web designers... who develop websites and upon completion, they transfer these websites files to a folder up on the domain name (ie: up on the internet)
FTP does involve a password and username for security purposes so that not anyone can intrude and remove files etc.

There are different codes which indicate different appearances and properties for text, layout, CSS styles, scripts etc. HTML codes use a standard PLAIN font, and no fancy font formats. Some web designers only work in HTML code to design a website, which requires a great amount of knowledge on the language and how it works.

Java
