Design is the process of collecting ideas, and aesthetically arranging and implementing them, guided by certain principles for a specific purpose. Web design is a similar process of creation, with the intention of presenting the content on electronic web pages, which the end-users can access through the internet with the help of a web browser.

 It is an art and process of creating a single Web page or entire Web sites and may involve both the aesthetics and the mechanics of a Web site's operation although primarily it focuses on the look and feel of the Web site design elements.

There are some basic elements of web design which includes layout, content, color, graphics, fonts etc. Layout is the way the graphics, ads and text are arranged. In the web world, a key goal is to help the view find the information they seek at a glance. This includes maintaining the balance, consistency, and integrity of the design. Graphics can include logos, photos, clipart or icons, all of which enhance the web design. For user friendliness, these need to be placed appropriately, working with the color and content of the web page, while not making it too congested or slow to load. Content and design can work together to enhance the message of the site through visuals and text. Written text should always be relevant and useful, so as not to confuse the reader and to give them what they want so they will remain on the site.


Now before going to web designing the question that comes to our mind that how to create a website ? Let’s see step at a glance


The first thing you need to do before anything else is to get yourself a domain name. This is the name you want to give to your website. It's just a name. It's sort of like registering a business name in the brick-and-mortar world; having that business name does not mean that you also have the shop premises to go with it.

A web host is basically a company that has many computers connected to the Internet. When you place your web pages on their computers, everyone in the world will be able to connect to it and view them. You will need to sign up for an account with a web host so that your website has a home.


Once you have settled your domain name and web host, the next step is to design the web site itself.




Web design is more about strategy than it is about having flashy graphics or catchy phrases. The most important aspect of web design is understanding what the website needs to accomplish and how to get it there. Now let’s talk about the approach and paramounts that you will have to keep an eye on before designing a website.


Search Engine Optimization (SEO) is a strategy that makes a website more easily searchable. By including keywords into the text of a website, search engines can more easily locate the website and draw it to the attention of an individual who is searching the Internet. Web designers can create their own or purchase special articles that repeat keywords several times, but in a natural-sounding way so that a search engine will bring up the site as being more relevant than another site because of the occurrence of a specific word or phrase.

When designing a website, it is important to consider the reason for which it will be used. Is it a personal, business or informational website. If it is a personal website, be sure the information included in it represents the individual and is generally appropriate, because the reputation that it website, it is important to maximize its exposure by incorporating Search Engine Optimized language and advertising on other websites to reach as many individuals as possible.

No matter how great the content or graphics of a website are, if the page is not compatible with the more popular web browsers, the website will not be successful. It is important to design the code for a website that is compatible with the four main web browsers: Internet Explorer, Safari, Netscape and Firefox.

When designing a website it is critical to consider what future goals the website must reach and how it can be viable a week, a month, a year, or several years into the future. One important consideration is who will maintain the website. Is there a dedicated webmaster or a series of freelance web designers? What percentage of sales should be created from traffic on the website and how will success be determined? One strategy for tracking traffic on the website is to use unique E-mail addresses for different parts of the website. For example, have a different E-mail address on company business cards than on the website.


Further, there are applications that can be installed that will allow an individual to start either solicited or unsolicited chats with visitors to the website and get their perspective directly from the source.


Often, developers are faced with upgrading an existing Web site rather than starting from scratch. Being able to fully evaluate the execution of a Web site is an important skill that all developers should strive to master. Site evaluation is also a great way to learn from others. Looking at sites that are well executed may inspire designers, while evaluating those that are broken may show them how to avoid errors. Yet site evaluations are not always easy to conduct. Often, developers focus on what they are familiar with or focus only on surface aspects of sites, such as visual design. As in building a site, an evaluation of a site must focus not only on visuals but also on technology, content, purpose, and delivery.


Every day the Web is growing by leaps and bounds. The true size of the Web is unknown, and it will undoubtedly increase even as you read this sentence. At any given moment numerous documents are added and others are removed. Gathering all the pages and keeping things up-to-date is certainly a significant chore. Users always want to know which search engine covers the most of the Web, but the truth is that today even the largest search engines index maybe only a third of the documents online. Some index only a few percent. This may change in the future, but for now be happy that not everything is indexed. The resulting mess of information to wade through would be even worse. In the case of local site search engines, the index might also not cover the entire site nor be updated often.

Most search engines use programs called spiders, robots, or gathers to collect pages of the Web for indexing. We'll use the term "spider" to mean any program that is used to gather Web pages. Spiders start their gathering process with a certain number of starting point URLs and work from there by following links. In the case of a public search engine, starting URLs are either submitted by people looking to get listed or built by forming URLs from domain names listed in the domain name registry. Local search engines work in the same way, but may be given a very small number of starting points if the site is well connected.


Pinning down exactly what is meant by the term Web design can be difficult. At best we can see that Web design is a multidisciplinary pursuit that consists of five primary components: content, visuals, technology, delivery, and purpose. However, theories of exactly how these components should mix together vary from person to person as well as project to project. Striking a fine balance between form and function, user and designer, content and task, and convention and innovation is the lofty goal of the Web designer. The good designer knows that scales should not tip too far one way or another and tries to avoid the absolutisms of "correct" Web design. Yet not everything in the field of Web design is so abstract—many specifics can be found. Correct mastery of the technical medium and knowledge of various details and conventions are mandatory for aspiring Web practitioners.
