Building the website

Before the development starts, the design of the website should be finalised. By design of website we mean the look and content of each page of the website, together with the navigation details within the website and to the outside, if planned.
There are many free, open-source Web Content Management System (WCMS) which may be used for developing the website. A WCMS will allow development of the website in a very organised manner and it allows collaborative content creation. Very littel knowledge of web application development tools and it's coding is required for developing websites. Click here to learn more about WCMS from Wikipedia.
Some of the commonly used WCMS are - Drupal, Joomla, ZenCart, WordPress, etc. This website has been developed using Drupal.
A simple website can also be developed using Hypertext Markup Language (HTML) or Cascading Style Sheets (CSS).
For creating advanced website one need to use scripting language e.g. PHP and may find it necessary to use a database. A web application developer may be hired for the development work.
