Choosing a professional web design company in Egypt is a hard task. There are a lot of web design companies in the market, and with different packages and prices. Today we will help you choose the right company for you, and your business.

  • 1- Modern Technologies

Not all websites are created equally. Some websites have a professional, and engaging design, others are just normal websites with normal designs. The technologies used to build websites are moving very fast. You need to be sure that your website will be built using the latest web standards, and technologies so that it won’t be outdated as soon as you launch it.

  • 2- Static Website ? Please don’t

A lot of clients are asking us if we can build a static website for them. Please Don’t!!!! This is 2018 and no one ever builds a static website any more. Actually the last time I have seen a static website being built was 10 years ago!!! Static websites are websites built using HTML & CSS only. These websites don’t have any programming language, just some blocks of code in some files. You can’t manage your static websites, and you will need a developer to do even the simplest tasks like replacing some text, or images. On the other hand, You can manage dynamic websites easily. You can edit your website content, add new pages, even manage users and permissions.

  • 3- Custom Coded Websites

If you are planning on hiring a web development team in your company to develop your web application, custom Coded website maybe a good option for you (I don’t think it is, but in some cases it can be beneficial). But, if you are searching for a web development company to build your websites, please don’t go for the custom Coded option. Using a well known CMS system or framework will be the best option for you. Popular CMSs and frameworks will have better stability, performance, security, and most importantly better support.

If for some reason you decided to stop working with your current web development company, you can easily find support, and hire another one. That’s why we always recommend using a CMS for all of our clients.

  • 4- SEO Optimized Website

When considering a web design and development company in Egypt. You must ask if your website will be SEO optimized or not. Having a website without any SEO optimization is like having a shop that no one can see. Any good web design, and development company in Egypt should build good SEO optimized Websites.

  • 5- Affordable Technical Support

This factor is one of the most important factors when to consider when you are looking for your next web design company. Affordable technical support will insure you that your website will be running smoothly without issues, or bugs. Any code in the world is prone to bugs, and issues, that’s why having an affordable technical support is very important.

PHP vs Python for web development

The topic of programming languages is very hard to write about specially when you are trying to compare them. Every programming language has a very loyal fan base that are ready to defend it. But that will not prevent us from comparing two of the most used programming languages.  Let’s start by defining each of these two powerful languages.

PHP

PHP is a server side development language, it is used to build dynamic web sites and web applications.  It has the biggest market share of all web development language accounting for 80% of the entire web (PHP is the language of choice for our web development services in Egypt)!!! This figure is unbelievable, 8 of every 10 website are built with PHP. It is used also by some of the biggest websites on the world like Facebook. PHP started as a small scripting language to do some small changes to static HTML files, but it has been developed, and became a very powerful web development language.

PHP Frameworks & CMS

Due to it’s popularity, PHP is used as the development language of the most successful CMS in the world called WordPress. Again WordPress is the most used CMS (Content Management System) on the internet. And in recent years a lot of modern frameworks have been built with PHP like Laravel, and Symfony. This huge CMS, and framework helped PHP to offer highly scalable and complex web applications.

PHP can be used to build e-commerce websites, social networks, online communities, and many complex applications. An example of how PHP can build highly complex web applications is Magento. Magento is an e-commerce CMS that can be used to build online stores with thousands of products.

 

PHP Advantages

PHP has a lot of advantages, after all it is the king of web development languages (by numbers). There isn’t any single language out there without some disadvantages but in PHP it’s advantages far out weight any disadvantages:

  • Strong integration between PHP & HTML
  • Widely used with MySQL for database development (MySQL is the number one database language on the internet)
  • Huge support from professional web developers
  • Open source language
  • Easy to learn which is great for support and rapid web application development
  • Strong OOP capabilities to  build complex websites and applications
  • Huge performance gains after the latest version of PHP (PHP 7.0)
  • Huge selection of CMS and frameworks to make web development with PHP easier

 

Python

Python is a general purpose programming language. general purpose languages can be used to build build anything, it can be used to develop websites, or build desktop applications. It has seen a lot of growth in 2017 as it was considered one of the most growing programming languages (according to Stackoverflow).

Python is an open source programming language used to create applications and scripts. It has a lot of advantages which made it the first language of choice in academia. some of these advantages are:

  • Easy to use syntax
  • Open source langugae
  • Huge library to build anything
  • Great community support
  • Used by some of the biggest companies in the world like Google, and Twitter
  • Good OOP support

PHP vs Python for Web

While both programming languages can be used to build complex web applications. We still think that PHP is by far the best web development language for this task. PHP is easy to use, well supported by all hosting companies, and has a lot of frameworks, and CMS to help developers build web applications easily. Python on the other hand is great in some areas but very limited in building web applications. Python only has two frameworks Django & Flask. and doesn’t have any good CMS system. Python is better suited to data science, and machine learning fields.
