What is a website, at the bottomline?
Digital text, gafics, forms, functions and maybe some audio- or video-items build a website. Depending on the combination the user interacts with it using a webbrowser.
The value to create a website depends on your goal, having all that technics of the 21st century available. So, my first question to you, my possible customer simply is: What do you want to get back from that website?
Knowing that we'll get to the bottomline after your request customized.
