The Stages of Website Development: The Ultimate Beginner’s Guide to iManila’s Website Development Phases

In a world where people increasingly turn to the internet for information, not having a website means missing out on countless opportunities. Whether you’re an individual looking to showcase your portfolio, a business aiming to sell products, or an organization seeking to increase brand awareness, having a website is a powerful tool that can help you achieve your goals. Moreover, if you’re a beginner looking to develop a website that stands out, iManila’s web development services are here to help bring your vision to life. 

As a trusted web development company, iManila understands the importance of delivering exceptional websites tailored to our client’s unique needs. We follow a systematic approach that takes you to every step of the process, ensuring that everything aligns with your objectives and requirements. 

If you’re ready to go digital, let iManila be your personal guide. Let us walk you through our collaborative web development process in this blog. Let’s start!

Project Kick-off

The project kick-off marks the beginning of our collaborative journey. It is when we finalize the project scope, details, specifications, and timelines to ensure we are on the same page.

Phase 1: Content Collation

After the kick-off meeting, we request you provide all necessary content, such as text and images, within 10 working days. For your convenience, we will provide a link so you can easily upload all files and documents in one centralized location. 

Phase 2: Initial Mock-up Design and Selection

For clients availing of our customized website development packages, we’ll present you with two initial mock-up designs. We’ll allow you to choose which design resonates with your vision. Then, once you’ve made your choice, we’ll design two additional inner pages based on your chosen mock-up design. This will serve as the starting point for the website’s overall design.

Phase 3: Full Mock-up Design

In this phase, we’ll create mock-up designs for all the unique pages of your website. The mock-up design will include a layout, color scheme, and overall user experience. This will give you a clear picture of how each page will look and function.

Phase 4: Website Development

Upon approval of the full mock-up design, our developers will initiate the web development process.  Consequently, our developers will apply the latest technologies and industry best practices to create a functional and visually appealing website.

Phase 5: Developmental Site Publication

We will launch the live website on our developmental server to give you a sneak peek of your site. This allows you to explore your website’s appearance and functionality firsthand. Additionally, this stage is the perfect opportunity for you to provide valuable feedback and suggestions for further enhancements.

Phase 6: User Acceptance Testing and Content Revision

You will have five working days to explore the website and share your valuable feedback and content revisions. Within the following five working days, we will diligently apply these revisions. Evidently, this collaborative process guarantees that your website will be refined to meet and exceed your expectations.

Phase 7: Website Publication

Once you give us the final approval, we’ll publish the website on your domain. While you have the option to host your website on a third-party provider, any remaining balance must be settled before the publication.

Phase 8: Post-Quality Assurance and Debugging

After the website goes live, we conduct a comprehensive post-quality assurance process to ensure everything functions smoothly. Our team meticulously checks and addresses potential issues promptly to ensure your website delivers a flawless user experience.

Phase 9: Website WordPress Training

To help you manage your newly developed website, we will provide free comprehensive WordPress training for up to four representatives. Based on our agreed schedule, we can conduct the training at our premises or via a convenient online platform like Zoom or MS Teams. Additionally, we will provide you with a Website Mapping Guide as complementary.


Finally, to officially close the project, we’ll provide you with an Acceptance Letter for your signature, which will signify that all deliverables are done.
