    • Which service provider do I choose for hosting the website? Do I have access to upload files to the publishing server?
    • What domain name is to be used for the website?
    • In case you are migrating existing websites into Dreamweaver, where are the files and assets stored currently? Do I have access to the server where this information is stored?
    • If you want a dynamic website, which server can I use to test if data is being displayed dynamically? Do I have the details of the web application server that I want to use for loading dynamic data?
    • What kind of assets are required for the website?
    • Will these be assets designed from scratch? If the assets are already available, do I have access to them?
    • What apps do I want to use for designing assets?
    • Do I plan to create a responsive website? 

    Assuming that you have a clear understanding of the website you want to develop and how and where you want to host it, and have chosen Dreamweaver and Creative Cloud for the web development process, proceed to the next step.
