When it comes to pricing a service, website design and development is one of the trickiest (in my opinion) services to estimate. There are a few reasons why this is the case, which we will get into a little later, but for Website Designers and Website Developers who make their living building websites for clients it is ABSOLUTELY CRITICAL that you properly estimate your website design jobs. If you don’t, you will be eating costs left and right, which will end up totally destroying your profit margin.
Over the next 1700 words or so I am going to do my best to provide you with a little insight into how to properly estimate your next website design project. Throughout the article we will discuss things like, what causes website projects to exceed the scope of work, tips for avoiding scope creep, creating a list of initial questions, using Skype to have face-to-face meetings with clients, and setting client expectations.
Password hacking is the process of recovering secret passwords from data that has been stored in or transmitted by a computer system. A common approach is to repeatedly try guesses for the password. Most passwords can be hacked by hashing, guessing, phishing or brute force techniques.
A series of hacks to popular sites like LinkedIn, Yahoo!, eHarmony and Last.fm has revealed the startlingly easy passwords we all use. The numbers say you’re not the only one. Of the 442,773 total passwords hacked from Yahoo!, close to a quarter were used by more than one person.
Color is a major part of our lives. It is one of the first things that we start identifying during our formative years. Most of us are of the impression that color matters only for selecting dresses and painting houses; however, we are not correct in such thinking. Whether buying a car, buying a phone, designing a house, or designing a website, color plays a major role.
Let’s talk about the role of colors when designing a website. Although you might be very sharp with color selection, you might make some common blunders when selecting color schemes for websites.

Ranging from small business holders to giant entrepreneurs, everyone uses websites or the ecommerce world to generate traffic, revenue, and branding. Although not all businesses utilize ecommerce, they maintain websites to generate traffic and for branding purposes, generating revenues if not directly, then indirectly.
If you’re reading this article than most likely you already know just how big of an impact tablets like iPad are making on website traffic. After only being on the market for a few short years, tablets have already changed the way a large percentage of people are accessing the internet.
For example, my wife needed a new computer two years ago. Instead of spending a few hundred dollars on a laptop, I decided to buy her an iPad for Christmas.

Although laptops and desktop computers are still the primary vehicles for accessing the internet, more and more people like my wife are replacing their laptops with tablets, or simply using both. In either case, the number of people using tablets to visit your website is on the rise.
