Content is the written and visual aspects of a website. Specifically, these refer to your website’s written words and any imagery you’d like used.
All projects will require content upfront. I will need to consider all elements and understand the overall intended outcome before we start with design.
A domain name is your website’s address that people type into the browser search bar, to hit your website. For example, our domain name is www.greymatterdesigns.co.za.
Your domain will be an annual fee between you and your chosen provider.
Web hosting is the location of your files and where your website actually ‘lives’. Hosting provides the connection between someone typing in your website and your browser fetching the files.
Your hosting will be a monthly or annual fee between you and your chosen provider.
