Website Maintenance: What You Don’t Know Could Hurt Your Website
As a company who has undergone website projects both large and small for several years, we at Web312 have been through different phases of web development and website trends. A couple of years ago, Web312 saw a huge shift in the amount of websites that went from being managed by developers to being managed by content writers with the assistance of Content Management Platforms and tools such as WordPress. Giving content writers the ability to publish his or her own content is a wonderful gift but with all of the power in the hands of the content developers is quite easy to forget that websites still need continuing maintenance. In fact, content managed websites need even much more than your old school static websites due to the technology that allows you to make those content changes such as with text, images and videos.
The perks of purchasing an SSL certificate with Web312 is that we are able to install it for you at a much lower price without any hassles or concerns that you may have with other web site developers and providers. If you think about it, when you launch your business online, there are several things to contemplate about. It is not simply just the style and functionality of the business’ website that you need to think about. You need to think about the security and technicalities of your business’ website too. An SSL certificate is one of the many features that can be added to a business website. It helps protect your sensitive information and keep customer’s sensitive information when purchasing an item.
One of the biggest mistakes and “oopsies” any site owner can make is to believe that once their site is up and running, it can just take care of itself. Regardless of how advanced your website may technically be, every website needs to be well maintained on a regular basis. Neglecting a website maintenance is like a grocery store owner refusing to repair his or her automatic door system. Customers will eventually get fed up and go to a store where the store owners take immense pride in keeping their store well maintained. The very same thing applies with maintaining your website. If every time a visitor enters your site and you have broken links or links that redirect to unrelated pages, your visitors will get frustrated and go to your competitors’ well maintained website.
There is absolutely no doubt about it that responsive web design is the darling of developers right now, and there is no shortage of opinion on whether it is a good or bad thing. While for the most part designers agree that it is the way forward, some have seriously questioned how sustainable responsive is due to the large files it delivers. This is because unless a responsive site is optimized, it delivers the exact same files to every device, meaning that mobile gets an awful lot of content it may not display but still has to load. According to a study that has been founded and researched, 86% of responsive sites that are currently online deliver the full desktop HTML element to every visiting device. If the web is not to become bloated with several large web pages, then this trend clearly needs to be addressed, especially when it comes to load times as 57% of mobile users will just leave if a site does not load within 2-3 seconds.
