comment Does a Web Developer need a Reseller account?
@LuckyLuke Usually with a reseller account on a shared host you'll have a CPanel web access to add sites to your account, while with a VPS you'll have more direct access to the virtual OS.

comment How to arrange images and video thumbnails into a tile like format in a web page?
Your question title implies a singular tag, however you appear to be asking about two different features (the tile like format and the navigation menu).

comment Chrome says my website is Serbian…how do I “force” chrome to use english?
@w3d Google might do for indexing purposes, but Kristen was talking about about the browser - which will probably respect it as an option.

comment webmaster tools 500 crawl error for asp faceted navigation that does not exist
If they aren't pages that should be crawled, then a robots.txt would probably be cleaner - remember that you can use wildcards to remove whole patterns (folders, etc.) rather than individual listings. If however there's a valid page that the bot should be going to then yes, some code based solution might be better - we'd need more info on the server/platform your site is on - this sort of thing should be fairly easy to pattern match.

comment How to evaluate a web developer?
@ionFish totally agree that you should get what you pay for - does depend on the contract however - if source isn't included - even with an agency you might not get complete source code... that being said, I've just done some work for someone where the hosting wasn't what I'd specified, and it resulted in a substantial extra time and cost for the client as I tried to make it work :(

One other thing - While paying for hosting yourself will almost certainly be cheaper, you should purchase this in consultation with your chosen developer, especially if you're looking for a CMS type solution.

@ionFish True enough - that's partly why I didn't mention education - I guess it depends on how long they've been doing it ;)

There should be no issue with asking someone for: 1. Examples of previous work, 2. References for that work - and do follow these up.
