Web development is a topic of interest to many people these days. The reason is Covid-19. Everyone tries to do everything online. There are plenty of people looking for online classes, shops. There are plenty of people developing websites. That's why I thought of posting an article like this.
Let us first know what web development and web designing are.
Many people still do not understand the difference between web design and web development. Web design is simply the process of building and maintaining a website. Before we talk about that, let's learn about the front-end and back-end of a website. In simple terms, the front-end of a website is what we usually call the website appearance or the UI (User interface). The back-end is what we usually call the server communications of a website, including the admin panel (technically the admin panel is the front-end). This is not what a normal user would see.
Web designing belongs to the front-end part. If it is broken down into other parts, things like UI design, website graphic designing, UX designing. Web development is a little different. Web development mainly consists of the back-end part. A little bit like server communications, database management, server management. We do web development to build and maintain an advanced web-based system from a typical website. (Admin panel is not a website. It is a web-based system. That is why we take it to the back-end.)
Phyxle is not a web designing agency. It’s a web designing and development agency in Sri Lanka.
Many people think that web development is a simple thing. One of the questions that most of us have is why do you charge so much when others do less? Web development is as advanced as software development. Sometimes even more so.
We first talk about the common mistakes made by many web designers and developers.
Many people think that programming is everything in project management. That's a big mistake. The programming part is a very small part. If we want to give a quality product to the client, the project manager must be up to that standard. If a person who can codify a website can put out a quality product, there would be a few junior developers for the company.
Another mistake that many people make is to not do a security checkup before production. If we sell a product, it is definitely the responsibility of the company. Failure to do so would be a serious injustice to our client. Also hosting websites with security vulnerabilities from our country is another loss to the country as well.
Another thing that does not charge much is UAT (User acceptance testing). UAT is simply the test of the product before it is released. Testing is a fundamental part of software development. Nothing we can give out without testing.
Another thing that many people do is use ancient technologies. Some tools do not receive updates. Some other tools have security vulnerabilities. Nobody cares much about that.
Bad codings. As mentioned earlier, web development is as advanced as software development. Bad codings cause a lot of things to happen. It directly affects the performance of the website. Many people do not care much about performance in web development. That's a big mistake. It can also affect SEO (Search engine optimization).
At Phyxle we always try to avoid such mistakes and provide our service. In addition to project management, development, UAT, security checkup, code optimization, and sticking to standards, we also provide our services after production such as free bug fixes, maintenance. We are always responsible for our quality. Another reason Phyxle is different from others is custom web designing. Many people use CMSs (Content management systems) like WordPress, Joomla, Drupal, OpenCart to do web development. The main advantage of a CMS is the built-in admin panel. With that comes a lot of disadvantages. In fact,
The client sometimes pays for what they do not want. This is because a CMS can have unwanted features.
Popular CMSs like WordPress have been hacked before. The main reason for this is that many people use that product because it is a target of hackers.
The final product is not unique
Phyxle We create the website and admin panel for our own server. You can customize it in any way, you only have to pay for what you need, we are responsible for the security because it is made by our own hands, we give a unique product that is unique to ourselves. Not everything is the same as web design and development. Not simple either. It is up to you to decide whether to spend your money wisely or give it to an experienced, responsible company.
