As a rule, the process of working on a site includes three main stages: planning, implementation, and site updating or maintenance.
Planning: The first and most essential stage in any project is planning. Before starting with Plesk Sitebuilder, think about the purpose of your site and its target audience. After this, decide where your site will be stored, or, in Internet terminology, hosted. This stage is beyond the scope of this document. Since Plesk Sitebuilder is often provided in a bundle with a web hosting package, we assume that you already have a web space for publishing your site. Then, you create a structure of your future site and prepare its contents, including text and graphics. The planning stage is extremely important because it eventually determines the usefulness of your site.
Implementation: The next stage is the implementation of your site. The five-step Plesk Sitebuilder Wizard takes you through the entire process of creating your site, from initial design to publishing and maintenance. The following is an overview of the main steps required to create a site using Plesk Sitebuilder:
Maintenance: When you complete the above steps, your site becomes available for visitors. It is critical to keep your site content fresh because this is a good way to show your attitude to customers and services. Therefore, we recommend to update your site on a regular basis. All you need to do is to log in to the Plesk Sitebuilder, edit the site content in the Wizard, and click Publish. Plesk Sitebuilder will transfer the updated content to your hosting location.
