Website Programmers for Hire: What You Need to Know

What Type of Web Developer Do I Need?

If you’re looking for a company to build your site from scratch, then you’ll need a “designer” or “developer.” If you’re looking to update an existing site, then you’ll need a “web designer.” A web designer can also be called a “web editor” if they specialize in updating the look and feel of websites. Some companies can do both design and development, which is advantageous for your business because they’ll be able to create high-quality designs and code the design into a working website.
