    Hey fellow designers,

    How big is your typical website in terms of megabytes (or kilobytes). Do you have lot of top level folders/directories or do you prefer nested folder/directories to stuff everything in? How many levels do you go generally? How do you decide on it? Do you decide on it or does it just keep evolving? Do you take any corrective action if it keeps evolving?

    I am looking to get a general picture of site management here as practiced by designers, so if you have any other input, that would be great too!


    I think a normal website can be arround a couple of mb’s. It depends the most on how you compress your images and how many scripts you use. I often make a directory ‘design’ for the graphics and css and a folder ‘javascript’ or something like that for the scripts. Also depends ofcourse on how many data you’ve got. 30mb is really a lot, but it can go fast indeed…
