In addition to the above elements, your school website should also be designed in a way that shows your school at its best. The colors and designs should be constant with the feel you want to portray to your prospective students. The site needs to be a reflection of your professionalism and must instill trust in your viewers and users. Cutting corners will only lessen your impact and cost your money in the long run.

Pitfalls to avoid when buying a website for your school:

Sometimes, as a buyer or consumer, you just don’t know what you don’t know. It happens all the time. Here are some of the pitfalls to watch out for when seeking out the best school website developer for your school.

Proprietary Software:

Some developers want to lock you into their proprietary software so you will not be able to leave them easily even if you’re not happy with their service. The use of open-source software that anyone can use and edit can be a big plus for a company that looks to the future.

The Ability to Edit Your Own Site:

Some developers do not allow this. They want to keep you coming back to them for edits whenever you need them, because it’s a good source of income for them. It makes good sense for them, but maybe not for you. Sure, there will always be more advanced things you want to add to your site, and you may not have staff that can handle it. But there may also be some small changes you may want to do in a hurry on the fly, and so you’ll want to know how to easily get those types of things done.

Long Contracts:

Many website developers like to lock clients into long expensive contracts. This is great for the developer, but not always ideal for the buyer. Canceling a contract can be a costly endeavor if it’s possible at all. Being stuck with a bad service provider is a losing proposition. You want to work with a company that has short-term contracts that are easy to get out of if and when the time comes.

High Prices:

Some companies make you think they are giving more because they charge more. They often have a fancy sales process or collateral marketing materials that make them look better than sliced bread. The reason they must charge so much is because they have to pay for all that fancy marketing and sales staff. They are usually great marketer, but they may or may not be so great at providing the services they sell.

Website Ownership:

Many companies will want to maintain ownership of your site, and in some ways keep you leasing the site from them indefinitely. It would be in your best interest to work with a company that gives you complete ownership of your own site so that you can do as you please with it, if the time comes that you want to move on.

 

Hosting for School Websites

Every website on the Internet requires some kind of hosting account. Not only is good hosting important for speed for quick viewing, but it helps with your search engine rankings as well. Our top-rated hosting accounts also include regular patches and security updates for your account as well as for your website. Regular backups on redundant servers and offline are included as well in the event of any kind of hacking or other disasters. Should any problems ever happen to your site we’re ready to reinstall your site to its last known working version ASAP.

At Art Tech Studio we take no chances with your site. We provide the best and most secure hosting environments for all our customers and clients.
