How is the process of developing a custom website for Magento going on?
Analysis and planning

At this stage, you should analyze the basic functionality of Magento, determine the design, compose the technical task, and decide which additional modules will be needed.
Modules of Magento are extensions that add functionality to the basic online store on Magento. There are ready-made modules, but most often you have to write them from scratch for a specific project.
Design and development
