Is your Website Developer the right one for you?

We don’t need to tell you that a good website can work wonders for a business. You need a good development team you can rely on to deliver a secure and effective website. There are a few things that are worth checking before you select a developer to build your next website.

Here are the following questions to ask when choosing someone to update or build a new website for you.

Do they outsource their development work?

Having a developer who is able to speak to you directly can be important - if you select a local developer this will be easier than working with someone in another country who may interpret something you want to be done, slightly differently.

Here at Miniwebs, we do have an off-shore Virtual Assistant who works on creating the basis of new websites. But all communication goes through Brenda, owner of Miniwebs so nothing is left to chance.

How long has the web developer/business been around?

You need someone with experience who understand domains, DNS settings, transferring websites, has built multiple sites (Check for an online portfolio). Can your new developer offer ongoing support as well? You don't want to have a website finished then 'here's the keys, see you later!'

At Miniwebs, we have been managing domains, websites, hosting servers etc for nearly 20 years. There's a lot to be said for experience and there's not much we 'can't' do or fix nowadays. And we most definitely do not 'hand you the keys' and say goodbye. We help all our customers long term.

What security does your website developer plan to add to your websites?

Even good websites can attract hackers who may exploit your website. Poor coding can minimize the security holes of your websites. Don't hesitate to ask your developer what features will be put in place on your website to minimize your future risks.

When Miniwebs builds a new website for you, or updates your current site, we ensure there are module/plugins that assist in the security of your site. Regular maintenance and updating of plugins and modules keeps on top of any issues that may appear.

Here at Miniwebs, we follow best practices when looking after our customers and would love to touch base with you if you are ready to build your new website.
