Technical Requirements for a Website Build

The technical information you’ll need to provide

If you have an IT support team – I’m more than happy to liaise with them

I will require the following access regardless of whether your project is a new website, or a refresh/rebuild of an existing site.

If you already have a Domain Name

If you already have a domain name (& you are not providing your own website hosting), all I require are login details to your service provider (for example Discount Domains). Or if you have an IT support team then please provide their contact details so that I can liaise directly with them.

If you need a new Domain Name

If your project is a completely new website, & you don’t have a domain name already, I am happy to take care of registration & management of this for you.
You will of course retain full ownership of your domain, I’ll just be the technical contact.

If you already have website hosting

I prefer to host the sites I build for a number of reasons*, but if you’d rather provide that hosting yourself – I can also work with that.
If your website isn’t already using the WordPress platform then a few technical requirements need to be met before any work can proceed.
Your website hosting provider must support the following technologies;

  • PHP (scripting language)
  • MySQL (database)
  • Apache or Linux (hosting environment)
  • A web hosting control panel

Note: Login details for the website hosting control panel must be provided.

If you require website hosting

If you don’t already have website hosting, I can provide this service for you. If however you wish to obtain your own (as stated above) that’s ok too, as long as the technical requirements are met.
You can provide login details here → or via email.

* I prefer to host the sites I build for the following reasons.
1) there’s one less link in the support chain should any issues arise; therefore, I can resolve those issues faster.
2) I use high performing, secure, scaleable web server technology that is likely faster & more economical than your current provider.
