Hosting and maintaining a website involves hardware and software costs, as well as the expense of personnel to design the site and update its content. This has a negative impact on a project’s human and financial resources.

- Know your Webmaster. Today, software is available that makes designing a simple web site relatively easy. Make sure that the designer you hire is the real thing, and has a proven track record with clients whose needs are similar to your own.
