Your new website

Have you decided your business needs a website?  Or maybe you feel your website needs an overhaul?  Either way, it's an exciting time!

Your website is your global shop window to your business.  It's how the world will see you, so it must be attractive, tidy, and well presented.

But did you know there are other important things to be considered when when building a website?  Some of which are a legal requirement, and some which affect your ability to reach your customers.  A website is so much more than a collection of text, pictures, music and video. 

We can help you achieve your dream website by allowing you to concentrate on then content, while take care of the complexities and worries that you may not have even anticipated.

Legal Requirements

The law in England and Wales requires that websites for businesses display certain information (Company number, address etc).  You should also display a disclaimer, terms and conditions, and a privacy policy for visitors.  In all cases, you must comply with the Data Protection Act.

Web Standards 

The way in which websites are "coded" is very much a topic of debate.  The W3 Consortium is an organization that recommends programming standards in order to improve the quality of websites.  A website that follows these standards will function as it should on a wide variety of different computers and software.  Some people think that standards should be followed to the letter.  Others feel that this will compromise design by forcing limitations. 

Internet users are free to use any browser and any operating system they choose.  Many of the most popular browsers do not support these standards to the letter. Therefore we feel that there needs to be balance between these standards and the needs of the customer.  Our websites ensure your users can enjoy a feature-rich experience. You can rest assured that you are achieving maximum impact.

Accessibility Standards

These guidelines help web designers to produce pages that can be viewed by anyone.  It's an all-to-common mistake to assume that everyone reads web pages using a good pair of eyes and a nice big monitor.  An equally big mistake is to assume that everyone can use a mouse and keyboard.

There is a wide variety of gadgets and software that some people use to help them navigate and read websites.  Many are devices that help people with impaired vision, such as braille readers, or software that speaks the content to the user.  Therefore websites must be built in a way that supports the use of such technology.

A website built by LWNet will take care of all the above for you by automatically generating standards-compliant code that also meets accessibility guidelines.

We have number of professional tools to check for compliance which we use to test your website for legal requirements, web-standards, and accessibility.

Web2.0

You may have heard this "buzz-word" and be wondering what it means.  Web2.0 is a very general term used to describe trends that are causing the web to evolve.  It does not mean that there are two Internets.

Web2.0 is best used to describe websites that have a certain style to their design.  The pages are well organized, with menus and other navigational tools placed consistently throughout the site.  Graphics are rich and eye-catching, and often have a solid appearance and subtle shadows.

You can also expect plenty of interactivity with blogs, forums, and RSS news feeds.  Web2.0 sites have enhanced functionality to make browsing a much more intuitive and enjoyable experience for visitors.
