[source]Durban has spent R6.5 million on its official 2010 Web site, which will showcase the city's Fifa World Cup developments to the country and visitors.
Head of Durban's strategic projects unit, Julie-May Ellingson, says the Web site will initially serve as an information portal for residents and visitors looking for information on the city.
While the price for the Web site may be high, she says it will be a “platform to showcase the city and its 2010 developments to the rest of the world” and falls within the city's budget.
“It is important that the Web site provides a productive, memorable and frustration-free experience for our visitors. We wanted to create a Web site that would be a source of useful information for tourists who want to visit the city, as well as showcase Durban as being a technically savvy city,” she notes.
The Web site – www.fifaworldcup.durban.gov.za – will have features such as a live Webcam of the Moses Mabhida stadium, the city's host venue. Interactive postcards and image galleries also feature in an attempt to make the Web site user-friendly, adds Ellingson.
