Do you want to make a professional website, but don’t know the best way to go about it? You are not alone – many people wouldn’t know where to start when faced with such a technological task!
That’s why I’m going to give you a few tips – as always with a view towards ‘Outsourcing to India’. Web design is now considered to be a standard task which can be easily delegated to an IT professional in India. This is a huge cost savings when compared to an IT professional in Europe.
You can create a professional website with these systems
Nowadays, modern websites are almost always realised with content management systems, or CMS for short. The times when web designers would manually create individual pages with HTML code and graphic material are long gone. Free interfaces like WordPress, Joomla, Drupal and Typo3 are especially popular.
WordPress plays a special role among CMS – no other content management system is used as often as this one. The independent industry service W3Techs has detailed statistics which show the impressive widespread use of WordPress.
26.3% of all global-operated websites run on WordPress. If you only take CMS based websites into account, that translates to a market share of 60%. Joomla is the second most used system with 2.7% or 6.1% among CMS-based sites. This is a significant difference between the two. The other systems are closer together in terms of market share: Drupal (2.6%), Magento (Onlineshop CMS; 1.3%), Blogger (1.2%), Typo3 (0.7%) and Bitrix (0.6%) are all CMS that let you create a website without any programming skills, just like WordPress.
Adobe Dreamweaver – which once was the market leader for creating websites – is now rarely used, with only a 0.6% share. However, because the numbers refer to existing websites, it is expected that the use of Dreamweaver or similar tools is close to zero.
CMS is the answer for anyone who wants to create a personal or professional website. WordPress and its competitors provide the functional basic structure and a back-end for managing and publishing content. Themes and templates are used for the design, which specify the appearance and the arrangement of the articles, pages and all other visible elements. Plugins let you add additional functions that are not needed for all websites.
This approach is used by nearly all CMS and makes the individual platforms able to be used for any type of website: blogs, company websites, online news portals, online shops or even social networks can be created with WordPress or another CMS without a huge amount of programming. A web design agency works with a mix of graphics/design, template customisation and specific code customisation. A professional web developer is needed for fewer and fewer websites.
