Steps of web site development

Step 1. Planning of the project

  1. Review project request
  2. Prioritize project request
  3. Allocate resources
  4. Form project development team

1.Review project request: In this stage we were requested to develop a website that falls on different categories like Portal, News, Informational, Business/Marketing, Blog , Wiki, Online social network, Educational, Entertainment, Advocacy, Web application, Content aggregator and Personal.

So, we as a team of five students decided to develop a website based on Educational category. Since we thought of helping other students who want to study abroad to get the same opportunity in an easy, safe and convenient way

The reason of choosing an online third-party tool is because it offers a wide rage of personalization and its very user friendly in terms of publishing, it doesn’t require much skills in developing a software.
