A few things to keep in the back of your mind when you are setting up your website for an easy win.
We believe that there are three core things that all web design services should offer; it’s just best practice in our eyes, but you’d be amazed how many service providers don’t view these three essentials in the same way.
Let’s have a look at them and why they are important.
SSL is one of the most important aspects of any website and is the cornerstone of internet security. SSL protects you by providing critical security, privacy and maintenance of data integrity; it encrypts sensitive information that is then transported over the internet. Potentially any computer between you and the destination server could get access to your personal details, but the encryption provided by SSL makes this data transfer safe and secure.
Responsive web design is absolutely crucial in the world we live in today. This world is a world where the internet is used from many different types of device; your website needs to read just as well on a smartphone as it does on a desktop computer and just as well as on a tablet as it does on a laptop.
We are at the point now where websites are being accessed via smartphones more often than traditional computers and laptops, yet there are still so many sites out there that are not mobile optimised. It’s a travesty really; a cardinal web design sin!
Google, or “the big G” are pretty much the dominant force online; this means that integration is so important when designing your website. It gives your site an aura of trust and credibility yes, but it also helps to make it super easy to use and navigate.
Using Google sign in is a great integration tool and you’ll see many popular, trusted sites using this method of log in.
