Web Design and Development guides users to subcategories which contain all resources and services having to do with designing, developing, maintaining, and promoting Web sites.

Sites which are incomplete, which have Under Construction notices, or which contain broken graphics or links have a poor chance of being listed. Please wait to submit your web site until it is complete. Please double-check the URL, and, if possible, include an e-mail address so we may contact you if we have questions. Duplicate submission (i.e. same site submitted repeatedly to single or multiple Web Design and Development categories) is not considered to be an acceptable practice by the Open Directory Project. If your site is submitted repeatedly, it may be removed from the Directory altogether.

All sites within Commercial Services are listed with the company name as the Title. Submissions to a Regional Web Design and Development category should include the business location in the description.

Designers and Developers:

We invite you to submit to the correct letter beneath the Designers subcategory beneath the Web Design and Development area alphabetically. Please submit to the appropriate subcategory, rather than to the main Web Design and Development category.

You may also submit the site to the appropriate category in the Regional tree.

If you provide more than one service (i.e. Hosting, Promotion, Marketing), be sure to mention each of the services in your description.

This category is for sites related to Web Accessibility only. Business related services can be found here: Computers/Internet/Web_Design_and_Development/Accessibility/Companies_and_Consultants Sites for web usability can be found here: Computers/Internet/Web_Design_and_Development/Web_Usability Sites for assistive technology (non-web related) can be found here: Society/Disabled/Assistive_Technology Other related categories are listed below.
Submission Notice: Please review the sites already listed in this category before making your submission. This may help you to create a more acceptable description and site title for the editor to review.

If your site is related to business activities (eg. Consultancy services), please submit your site to: Computers/Internet/Web_Design_and_Development/Accessibility/Companies_and_Consultants

Resources and information for web authoring, which includes page creation, design, content, and markup.

If you are a designer or design company looking to list your business' page, it belongs in: Computers/Internet/Web_Design_and_Development/Designers/

Please do not submit websites directly into this category, but rather select the most appropriate subcategory for your site.

The editors reserve the right not to list your site, and to delete it after its addition. Multiple submissions, especially to inappropriate categories, will not be tolerated.

    Hosted components for web sites and hosted services for web site owners. These don't require software to be downloaded or installed on a web server. The component or service must be hosted on the servers of the site providing the component or service. If the component or service is hosted on the web site owner's server or the web site owner's hosting company server then the site can not be listed in this category.


    Some of these are intended only for the site owners, though most are intended for visitors to the site. In the case of the latter, the site owner usually just needs to link to the site or copy and paste some script or markup.

    Submit sites offering a specialized hosted service with no appropriate subcategory, or sites offering services that span multiple listed categories.


    Sites offering non-commercial online tools in multiple areas of web site development, or provide a usable service to webmasters to help design/build/maintain a website will not be listed here -- they should be submitted to the appropriate subcategory underneath Computers/Internet/Web_Design_and_Development/Authoring/Online_Tools/.

    This catgegory is for informational sites on the topic of "Web Usability" (ie resources for authors and designers to help them make their sites easier to use). Commercial sites from people and companies offering related services should be suggested to Computers: Human-Computer Interaction: Companies and Consultants rather than here. Sites with more general information for web authors (not just focussing on usability) should be suggested to Computers Internet Web Design and Development: Authoring rather than here. Suggesting inappropriate sites to this category will only delay their review and potential listing by editors.
