The act of creating and launching for a website is not linear. As in the execution of any project, many stages are developed in parallel and some instances imply going back. Unlike a document registered in another medium, a website is not concluded, registered and distributed, on the contrary; Remains in a logical place, presenting information, growth, being updated or outdated.A website is a living being, it never ends and this feature affects the process of its creation.
