What is different about creating a new website compared to redesigning an existing website?

When considering a redesign of an existing website compared to starting from scratch, you have to consider what steps are already completed in the existing design. An existing site that you are trying to redesign, less content needs to be created and your domain is already hosted on a server.

Content Creation

When redesigning a website that already exists, you can use your existing content as a framework for new content, or even directly copy what is already created. Creating a new site also requires creating new content from nothing. It is recommended that you read through some of your existing content on your homepage and landing pages to make sure the language is up to date and refined.

Hosting and Domain

If your website is already live and public, you already have your domain as well as hosting set up. New websites will require the purchase of a domain name and setup of a hosting server.
