Introduction to Websites

User Rating: / 3

A website is a collection of linked pages located on a web server. The website is accessed via a unique address and maintained by the webmaster. When it comes to website design, most companies focus on the look of the site and pay little attention to the functionality and content.

We are different and believe a website should:

  • be a channel of communication between you and your stakeholders.
  • allow easy access your product information.
  • improve your professional image.
  • increase business enquires.
  • provide a great user experience.

Contact us to discuss your exact website requirements. We offer a complete package including logos, website design, hosting, training, support and webmaster services.


Website Address – The domain name (or URL) is the string of letters used to locate your website. For example, www.chiredzi.co.zw is the location of the EWAY Chiredzi website.

Website Hosting – All the files and information that make up a website must be placed on a web server. A web server is a computer that is permanently connected to the internet for the sole purpose of returning the requested web pages. Although it is possible to run your own web server, it is easier and more cost effective to use a reliable web-hosting provider.

Webmaster – The person(s) responsible for maintaining a website. Once a website is created, it cannot be abandoned. Every website needs to be maintained and updated regularly. A stagnant website can greatly tarnish your organisational image. EWAY Chiredzi offers all the services necessary to run a successful website.

Content Management System (CMS) – A Content Management System is a software platform that allows you to create, edit, publish and self manage many aspects of your website with minimal technical knowledge.

E-commerce – The buying and selling of products and services online. An e-commerce platform is software that facilitates online sales, marketing, payment, delivery and customer service. The software allows you to self manage many aspects of your online store with less technical knowledge.

Newsletter / E-Mail Marketing – E-mail newsletters develop a relationship by sending a campaign of marketing messages, offers and news over time.

Social Media – Social media refers to the use of web-based (and mobile) technologies for social interaction and interactive dialogue. Each social media platform has its own focus including sharing thoughts, news, recommendations, pictures, videos, etc.

Web Apps / Mobile Apps – Web and mobile applications are software which is created to interact with the user and perform specific tasks such as a game, calendar, music player, etc. EWAY Chiredzi can develop applications to your specific requirements.

Search Engine Optimisation (SEO) – Search Engine Optimisation is the process of improving the visibility of a website in the results produced by search engines such as Google. Typically, the earlier and more frequently a website appears in the list of search results, the more visitors it receives.

Database Programming – A database is an organised collection of data which can be searched, updated and analysed to extract pertinent information.

Flash Animation – Flash is a method of creating animation for websites that also allows interaction with the user. HTML5 is envisioned to replace Flash.
