WEB DESIGNing Services
What is web design? Web design is the user experience aspect of website development. This used to mean site layout for desktop browsers, but in today's landscape, web design must be considered for mobile phones and tablets as well. A good web design is easy to use, catered to the users, and is aesthetically pleasing. You want your information to be clearly laid out and easy to follow. Simplicity is the focus and the end-result should be easy to navigate for the user. Two of the most common methods for web design services are responsive and adaptive design.
With responsive design, content moves dynamically, depending on the size of the screen. With adaptive design, the website content is static, or fixed, in layout sizes that match common screen sizes. Responsive design is more difficult in this regards, so if your website looks dramatically different on web browser than mobile, you might want to consider dynamic design. Or you could always hand the keys to Astoria Media Group and let us drive visitors to your website. Contact us today for the best web designing services!

What is website development? Website development is the building and maintaining of a web page so that it functions properly at all times. There are several software languages in the web development world. HyperText Markup Language, or HTML, is a coding language used to create the front end of websites by describing the structure of the web page and telling the browser how to display the content.
Cascading Style Sheets, or CSS, is a programming design language that works with HTML to design the style and format of a website. Content Management System, or CMS, is a computer software application that controls the digital content of a website. An example of CMS is Wix, which makes it possible for people who don’t know code to create a website and to easily make updates. Another solution for people who don’t code is to contact the experts at Astoria Media Group. We will serve you with the best web designing services.
There are a number of web design elements that go into a website. Text, video, and images are the most common components. Text is the written content that you want to showcase that will explain the goods and services your company offers and the locations it services. The images typically consist of photos and graphics that are relevant to your industry and service area. Some web designers utilize graphic design to create custom images and graphics. Graphic design is defined as “the art and practice of planning and projecting ideas and experiences with visual content.”
The most common example of graphic design for a business is the company logo. Another element to multimedia is video, and this type of content is more valuable than ever. Videography refers to the process of capturing moving images on electronic media and even streaming media, including video production and post-production. If you are struggling creating content, contact the experts at Astoria Media Group and we can help with all your multimedia needs by offering our web designing services.
For a website to go live and be visible on the internet, it needs web hosting. A web host is a business that provides the services needed for the website to be viewed on the internet, via their servers and network. You might have heard of Go-Daddy, but there are many web hosting solutions. Most companies require that you own the domain in order to have them host it. If you don’t already own a domain, this is definitely the first step in the website creation process. Once you have a domain, the next step is to create the website, which can be done offline.
Once you are ready to go live, and show the world your website, you need to make sure that it has adequate hosting. Most hosting providers will provide you with email accounts, FTP access, and WordPress support. If you are currently using gmail, or a free email service, we would recommend switching to a domain specific email, such as us[email protected]yourwebsite.com. This adds a lot of credibility to your contact information and could help open up doors to bigger and better clients. Contact AMG for all your website and hosting needs. A professional web hosting service will make sure your users have a better experience on your website and will save you, the business owner, a lot of time that can be used on growing and running your business.

What is website maintenance? Website maintenance is the continued monitoring of a website to make sure it is optimized and performing well. A professional company handling website maintenance will make sure your security is up to date and will regularly update the site with fresh content. This will ensure that your site users are happy as well as strengthening your search engine optimization. Your website is the first thing most about your company most people searching the internet will find. This could be the user’s first time visiting your website and you want to make sure to make a good impression, both in terms of content and layout.
When it comes to the types of upkeep that goes along with website maintenance, there are recommendations for weekly, monthly, quarterly, and yearly tasks to keep your website running smoothly. Website maintenance is far from “set it and forget it.” For example, if your site is not secure with HTTPS, 64% of Americans will leave the website immediately, as it looks like it could be a scam.
