Use Your Desktop Browser. The fastest way to test if your website is using responsive design is to open your site using a browser like Chrome, Firefox or Safari and taking your mouse to the bottom right corner of the browser window and dragging it from the bottom right to left. The layout should change as you drag it smaller.
Self-hosted site builders typically offer the fastest, easiest route to a Web site. They usually don't require any technical knowledge to build (you choose a pre-designed template and add your text or images), and they can be ready to launch within 24 hours. Self-hosted site builders also represent the least expensive Web site options, partly because they eliminate the need to separately pay a Web hosting provider. But these sites can be inflexible, too, allowing a limited number of Web pages, offering a narrow selection of templates and preventing you from uploading your own pages. Most can't accommodate the use of complex scripts either. They also may not be moved from that server.
Domain names were created to make IP, or Internet Protocol, addresses more human-friendly. That is how you locate your website on the internet, using a browser. A website is a related collection of World Wide Web (WWW) files that includes a beginning file called a home page, usually using index.html.
The legal owner of a domain name is the person and/or organization listed as the domain's registrant or owner contact. Domains typically have four contacts: registrant/owner, admin, technical, and billing. These can be the same person or different people.
We also recommend using an email address for account login, contact/notification, and domain registrant contacts that does NOT use your website domain name. If you use firstname.lastname@example.org, but mydomain.com accidentally expires, not only will your website go down, you won't be able to receive emails at any addresses associated with that domain.
The definition of a Content Management System (CMS) is an application that provides capabilities for multiple users with different permission levels to manage (all or a section of) content, data or information of a website project.
Managing content refers to creating, editing, archiving, publishing, collaborating on, reporting, distributing website content, data and information.
You need at least some basic coding knowledge in order to properly use the systems and you really need to pay attention to the details. If you're going along adding and editing content on your web site and you notice that things are not looking right anymore, you need to re-read the instructions on how it should be done and/or ask your web designer what you're doing wrong. Then you have to take the steps to correct your work and how you do things.
If you believe that CMS sites are maintenance free you're dead wrong. EVERY site needs ongoing maintenance and updating, whether it's a static site or built on a CMS. The cost of having your web designer maintain your site properly is as individual as the site itself. A site built on a CMS is definitely not maintenance free. You need to check the needs of your proposed website and then decide on whether a static site or CMS is the best fit.
That depends on the web site. many sites can be added to, but the bigger picture is did you change how you do business, does the site continue to work with the Branding of the company? Many times a company will shift how the products they make so an old site that does not work with the Branding would be better served being rebuilt.
