Among all the languages used to develop websites today, most programmers would name PHP as their favorite option. And with good reason to: PHP is reliable, economical, fast and secure. The fact that it can be easily implanted into HTML, XHTML and other scripting languages makes it the first choice of programmers worldwide.
Countries like India are teeming with talented programmers and a number of companies specialize in programming, designing and creating content for web sites. As these companies take complete responsibility of development your website and are a one-stop destination for your all your web development needs, you should consider outsourcing you web development work.
When it comes to designing a good website that creates the right image of your business in the minds of your clients and customers, it is only right that you go for the best option rather than the cheapest option. You can train your own programmer to develop a website—but the costs, both in terms of teaching them the skills they will use only once, and in the man-hours you will have to devote to the program, make it an unnecessarily expensive exercise.
You can hire a freelance to develop your website. But freelancers are a gamble: if you are lucky you may find a freelancer who does brilliant work and doesn’t charge too much. But on the flip side you are faced with the option of paying for an unattractive website that doesn’t reflect well on your company.
Outsourcing your PHP development work to a company that is has a lot of experience in developing customized websites for other businesses might be your best bet. Such companies are created for this very purpose: they have teams of designers, PHP developers, SEO teams and content writers. You can choose one or all of the services they offer. Outsourcing helps you to build stunning websites at economical rates. Choose a bona fide company to ensure on-time delivery and first-rate services.
The other significant advantage of using outsourcing services is the flexibility most companies offer: you can choose from among a number of different work-models. You can ‘hire’ a PHP developer or a team of developers; this means that they work exclusively on your project and are in touch with you. You can keep an eye on the development of your website and offer suggestions and make queries regarding any point.
Or you can give deal with the company on a project basis—you pay a certain amount and the company delivers the project with all its specifications by the predetermined time. You can also use the services of one or more PHP developers for a few days on an hourly basis. This system can save you a lot of time and money in case your PHP development needs are limited to developing a few applications.
So, if you need someone to develop a dynamic, feature-rich website, and you do not want to spend large amount of money or time on it, your best bet is to outsource the project to a good offshore development firm.
