These day there are lot of small companies establish in Dehradun, they are always ready to start your website design and development. but after someday they will start to give you excuses.
Having a professional and effective web site is now essential for any small or medium sized business. Not having a web site is simply one of the best ways to help your competition. Not only does a web site add credibility and provide a key point of contact 24 hours a day, but increasingly it is becoming the primary shop window and first place people look when finding out about your business.
So how do you go about getting a web site built or, if you already have one, ensure that your existing web site has impact and is generating you business in the most effective manner?
Nowadays with a number of off the shelf, simple web design software packages available, you may be tempted to build your own or take up that offer from a friend , neighbour or relative to build one for you at minimum cost. However, in the long run this could be a very expensive mistake. Your web site is vital to the success of your company and a web site that is unprofessional and hard to navigate will not reflect well on your business. You need to ask yourself what experience they have in areas such as search engine optimisation (SEO) to ensure high visibility on search engines such as Google and Yahoo. What technical support will they provide once the web site is up and running. Is the web site properly backed up and secure and does it meet legal requirements in terms of privacy and copyright issues. In addition, if you are building it yourself, do you have the necessary resources, expertise and time to not only design the initial site but maintain it going forward?
Choosing to use a professional web design company to design your web site, or re-design your existing site, should be regarded as an investment rather than a cost.
In choosing which company to entrust with your business’s web site there are a number of things you need to consider.
- Range of services
Does your provider offer a one stop shop? Creating and maintaining an effective and professional web site often requires the coming together of a number of disciplines. These can include graphic design, search engine optimisation, copy writing, logo design, branding, photography, in combination with a range of other online and offline marketing tools. Employing different companies for each of these services can be both time consuming and costly.
- Technical Competence
Does the provider have the necessary depth and breadth of technical knowledge? Are they familiar with the most recent web formatting languages as this can greatly influence how easy the site is to maintain, the amount of code required and consequently the time taken to load your web pages. Can they test for compatibility across multiple browsers and different platforms e.g. PC, Mac, and Linux etc? Can they ensure the site adheres to web protocols such as W3C (Worldwide Web Consortium)?
Is your provider able to host your web site? The ability to host your company’s web site offers two major advantages – flexibility and reliability. By hosting the provider can more easily implement updates or changes as required and keep it running in the most optimised configuration.
- Video Capability
Does your provider have the capability to produce, integrate and host videos? According to Hitwise, a leading global online competitive intelligence service, traffic to websites which include videos has increased by 40% over the last 12 months. Add to this the fact that the web is beginning to secure more advertising than TV and you can see why adding videos to your web site is essential in attracting visitors and in making your product up to the minute and dynamic. In addition, including video can significantly enhance search engine optimisation.
- Project Management
For larger site development, is your provider willing to appoint a project manager? For these larger sites a project manager is essential in ensuring time scales are met and necessary resources allocated.
- Personal Touch
Are they willing to develop a close working relationship with you and do they fully understand your business? If the relationship is going to be successful the web design company you choose should be willing to invest time in understanding what makes your business special and ensure the aims and objectives of the web site are clearly identified and agreed.

The present town of Dehradun was founded in the early eighteenth century by 'Guru Ram Rai', the elder son of seventh Sikh Guru, Guru Har Rai, who was part of the Udasi sect of Sikh Asceticism, who came here in 1675, and first settled in village 'Dhamawala', which even today hosts the annual 'Jhanda Fair' on the fifth day after Holi in his memory. Thus the name refers to his Dera or settlement in the valley, around which the present town gradually developed, and marking this settlement is a Gurudwara called 'Guru Ram Rai Darbar', built in 1699 with the help of Raja of Garhwal, Fateh Shah, who was succeeded by his grandson in the same year, Pratap Shah, and modelled on the tomb of Mughal Emperor Jehangir.
Dehradun was an In dependent kingdom, then after it was a part of Nepal. Nepal lost Dehradun to England when India was colonized by England. Historically, Dehradun has remained part of the Garhwal Kingdom also known as 'Kedarkhand', which was founded by Ajai Pal, around 1400, by capturing all the minor principalities of the Garhwal region, under his own sway, and thereafter, he and his descendants ruled over Garhwal and the adjacent state of Tehri-Garhwal, in an uninterrupted line till 1803, when Gurkhas invaded Kumaon and Garhwal.
In between, until Najib-ul-Daula, the governor of Saharanpur, who later founded city of Najibabad, invaded the city with his army of Rohillas in 1757, and ruled here, leading to its wide spread development, though after his death in 1770, it was successively annexed by surrounding tribes of Rajputs, Gujjars, Sikhs and Gurkhas who ruled the region in quick succession, and lead to its steady downfall.
Finally in 1803, it was annexed by the Gurkhas , who made the king of Garhwal, Pradyuman Shah, flee to Saharanpur, leaving the region to be ruled by an iron fist by the Gurkha king 'BAL BHADRA THAPA'. Later, King Pradyumna Shah and his sons Kuwar Parakrama Shah and Kuwar Pritam Shah, and a 12,000 strong army fought with the Gorkhas at Khurhbure, where the king was killed.

In the same year, the British had already taken over Saharanpur, which lead to continuous skirmishes between the two armies, leading to the Gurkha War (1814–1816), also known as the Anglo-Nepalese War, when eventually the Gurkhas were ousted after the siege of the fort of Nalapani.
The Sugauli Treaty, signed on December 2, 1815 and ratified by March 4, 1816, between the British East India Company and The Kingdom of Nepal, ending the second British invasion of the Himalayan kingdom during the Anglo-Nepalese War (1814–1816). The signatory for Nepal was Raj Guru Gajaraj Mishra aided by Chandra Sekher Upadhyaya and Lieutenant-Colonel Paris Bradshaw signed for the Company.
The treaty led to the annexation of the Dehradun and east Garhwal Kingdom into the British Empire, and they became part of the Garhwal District, in the Kumaon Division of the United Provinces, and had an area of 5629 sq. mi, and that is when it slowly started regaining its lost glory. Meanwhile, the west Garhwal was reinstituted to the Garhwal Kingdom, and Sudarshan Shah, son of slain king, was made the king of Tehri Garhwal, who made Tehri his capital.
'Dehra Dun' municipality was established in 1867, and in 1900 railways made its way to Dehradun via Haridwar, which was earlier connected in 1886.
In 1901, Dehradun had a population of 24,039, and was a district of British India, in the Meerut division of the United Provinces, while the neighbouring town of Rajpur, which lay en route to the hill-station of Mussourie, and from where pure-drinking water was supplied to the city through pipes, had a population of 2,900.
During the Second World War the Dehra Dun Central Internment Camp was a major prison for detained German, Austrian and Italian enemy aliens. It's most famous inmate was Heinrich Harrer who after several attempts, finally escaped in 1944 with Peter Aufschnaiter and slipped over the mountains into neutral Tibet. He recounted his time at the camp in Seven years in Tibet (Rupert Hart-Davis, 1953) and Beyond seven years in Tibet
