The increasing complexity of information systems and their interconnection to WW~W applications make the design of such systems a difficult task. To produce large size web environments, systematic design methodologies and conceptual and design models have been developed. We present a methodology for the. design of web systems in which servers are distributed over a wide geographical area. This context obliges us to consider not only the organisation of the information, but also its allocation

Since we consider a distributed environment, this methodology has been extended developing adequate tools and strategies. Particular attention has been devoted to the problem of data allocation. The allocation strategy is based on the fragmentation of the information and on the study of access dynamics. An example, based on an Intranet system, is presented.
