    A client should not be in the dark when he asks someone to make a website for him. The web designer should make it a point to update his client, at least, once a week regarding the progress of the website that he is doing.

    It can be quite frustrating if your website designers do not update you with the progress of your site. Most of the web designers I know do not wait for the client to ask questions. He volunteers the information about the updates that he did on the site. It is better and more convenient this way.

    You do not have to be nosy on your questions. Just ask him how the site is going and if you can take a look at the unfinished site if possible. You just have to put your whole trust in him that he will finish the website on time based on the contract that you agreed upon.

    Mostly, website owners do not ask web designers. They tell designers what they want. 🙂
