    Making a Website - Introduction

    In order to make a website, you must first have a well thought out plan of what you would like to achieve, the name and some initial content to get it started. Many people rush into making a website with no real plan on what it will do. If you choose that way, then you are unlikely to become successful and you may end up wasting your money on domain and hosting expenses.

    I really like your design. Good job on the article too.

    • Functionality
    • Page loading times
    • Content
    • Readability
    • Structure (page and directories/files)
    • Target Audience
    • Simplicity/Complexity (depending on audience)
    • Cross Browser/OS Compatibility (Linux doesn't have Windows fonts, IE can read code differently to FF etc)

    Just a few I thought of from the top of my head. Haven't designed in a long time but I always applied those rules during the "planning" stages.

    In my opinion you don't necessarily have to have or use images. For example some tutorials are best read with the OS defaults and no styles. I think taking the target audience into consideration is a major factor. If it's an art website you would expect it to be different to a football website etc.
