Before you begin using a new site or editing your current site, you must take into account the hardware and software you need to support your efforts.
For the hardware you need, this is very simple or reasonably complex to suit your needs. Of course, if you want to create a new website (or you can check your new site later), you need a computer. It's pretty simple, right? Not necessarily. We work with Apple Macintosh (OSX Leopard on the MacBook Pro), since we are doing a lot of intense graphic work and invested in Adobe Creative Suite software (Photoshop, InDesign, Flash, Dreamweaver, etc.). The new site is just as easy to create on your Windows computer, but we recommend you stay away from using Windows Vista (any version) and migrate to Windows 7 or Windows XP. These operating systems are much more stable and reliable
Another aspect of the hardware can be a security hard drive or removable USB memory. It is important to back up all your site data to a removable drive if your computer crashes, is interrupted or stolen. When creating Web files, most of the data is stored on the servers server site, but in many cases there will be many other "build files" that will usually never make it to the hosting servers. If you lose this data, you will in many cases be forced to start from scratch. Another hardware device that many people forget about is an HD video camera. If you want to add a video to your site, forget about something decent; you normally have to add a good video camera that captures "stills" even under $ 50,000.
For the software you need, this is somewhat more complicated, depending on the purpose of the web site design. At least you will need some word processing software, FTP (file transfer software), graphics software, and then many other tools as you progress.
Here are some of the most common topics you should consider
Do you currently have a computer that can quickly and efficiently process large files (eg video files)?
Are you planning to receive your site portal? If so, you know what type of hardware and server software you will need?
BACKUP HARD DRIVE or USB STICK
Is there a backup device or plan for backup at this time? 19659002] CAMERA
Are you ready for custom videos to your website and if so, do you have a HD video camera ready?
MOBILE WEB INSTRUMENTS
Are you planning to use your site for "mobile web friendship"? If so, do you have an iPhone and iPad? Android phone? Blackberry device? These will be needed for testing purposes
WEBSITE CREATION SOFTWARE
Is there any site development software (eg Adobe Dreamweaver or Microsoft Front Page) installed, licensed and ready for use  GRAPHIC EDITOR SOFTWARE
Are you planning to create or edit your own webpage graphics? Do you have the necessary software (eg Adobe Photoshop or Photo Studio)?
Are you planning to create a database for your site, and if so, you know which software is using this goal?
