It is website desing or website design?

People often makes the mistake to misswrite this word. Either because they are in hurry, or they just don’t know how exactly this word is spelled. The correct is: website design with “gn” at the end and not website desing.

Design, usually is used related to the applied arts, engineering, architecture, or creative endeavors.
It is used both as a noun and a verb. As a verb it refers to the process of creating and developing a plan for a product, for a component, for a system or for a structure. As a noun “a design” is used as a final plan (proposal, drawing, model) or the result of that plan implementation (the produced object, process result). Nowadays, it is also used for processes (design products) and got a new meaning: “process design”.

But in any cases being used, the right spelling is still: design instead of desing.

A little dictionary (from answers.com):
The word design is derived from the word “de” and “sign”.

de·sign
v. de·signed, de·sign·ing, de·signs
v.tr.

  1. a. To conceive or fashion in the mind; invent: design a good excuse for not attending the conference.
    b. To formulate a plan for; devise: designed a marketing strategy for the new product.
  2. To plan out in systematic, usually graphic form: design a building; design a computer program.
  3. To create or contrive for a particular purpose or effect: a game designed to appeal to all ages.
  4. To have as a goal or purpose; intend.
  5. To create or execute in an artistic or highly skilled manner.

v.intr.

  1. To make or execute plans.
  2. To have a goal or purpose in mind.
  3. To create designs.

n.

  1. a. A drawing or sketch.
    b. A graphic representation, especially a detailed plan for construction or manufacture.
  2. The purposeful or inventive arrangement of parts or details: the aerodynamic design of an automobile; furniture of simple but elegant design.
  3. The art or practice of designing or making designs.

  5. An ornamental pattern. See Synonyms at figure.

  7. A plan; a project. See Synonyms at plan.
  8. a. A reasoned purpose; an intent: It was her design to set up practice on her own as soon as she was qualified.
    b. Deliberate intention: He became a photographer more by accident than by design.
  9. A secretive plot or scheme. Often used in the plural: He has designs on my job.

So, now you know that in the future if you want to search any “design” related term its better to know that is not desing, it is spelled as design. In plural is desigs instead of desings.

However most of the major search engines already seen this problem and they offer the right words when you search a wrong spelled word(s). For example if you search for web desing they will offer web design and you just have to click on it to correct your search keywords.

Other corrections:
graphic desing -> graphic design

free desing -> free design
home desing -> home design
