Why WordPress? WordPress Web Development & Hosting

what-is-wordpress

WordPress is the most famous web application accessible online. It boasts more than 46.000.000 yearly downloads and at the moment stands behind more than 18% of all websites that exist on the internet. Whilst it started as a standard blogging system, it very quickly evolved into a full–fledged CMS through which it is possible to design any kind of web site.

WordPress’ progress owes a great deal to its energetic community. This community has developed many different completely free WordPress web themes, plugins incorporating completely new functionality and websites dedicated just to WordPress.

Why WordPress?

WordPress is Free as in Freedom

WordPress is a free software, this means you are free to download, install, use and modify it. You can use it to create any kind of website. It is also open source which means the source code of the software is available for any one to study, modify and play with.

Anyone can contribute to WordPress by writing patches, answering support questions, writing plugins, creating themes, translating WordPress and updating documentation.

There is a WordPress theme for just about everything. Whether you want a photography theme, magazine theme, portfolio theme, or an eCommerce theme. There is a perfect theme available for every kind of website.

WordPress themes are easy to customize because a lot of them come with their own options panel allowing you to change colors, upload logo, change background, create beautiful sliders, and do other cool things with your website without ever writing any code at all.

WordPress is super flexible and can be extended by using plugins. Just like themes, there are thousands of free and premium plugins available for you to use (What is a plugin?). Not only these plugins can add extra functionality to WordPress, there are lots of plugins which can add a whole new platform to your WordPress site. Take a look at the plugins we are using on WPbeginner.

Why You Need A Mobile Website

Why Do You Need A Mobile Website - Responsive Design

Why do you need a mobile website?

Today, with the advancements in mobile technology and the increased availability of Wifi/3G/4G networks, surfing the web using mobile devices has become an normal sight the world over. Whether in North America, Southeast Asia, sub-Saharan Africa or South America, you can easily spot locals catching the latest news, watching cat videos or social networking using smartphones or tablets

For many around the globe, who mostly just want to go online, it’s more economical and practical to buy a smartphone or tablet than to buy a desktop machine. The equation is simple: Mobile devices cost substantially less, and Wifi or 3G/4G networks are readily available for reasonable rates.

Along with this shift in device distribution, the nature of online activity has also evolved. Due to devices’ miniscule screen sizes (between 4 to 5 inches on smartphones) and limited hardware resources (weaker processor chip and graphics card), mobile device owners are more selective with the sites they choose to frequent. Sites that perform nicely on devices and give mobile users the most comfortable experience, benefit from the most traffic. The sites that aren’t are abandoned very quickly by users.

Basically, in order for a site owner to keep their visitors satisfied and coming back for more, their site must perform smoothly on devices and be displayed in an easy-to-view manner.

Here are some findings which might give you something to think about:

According to Compuware (July 2011), 71% of global mobile web users expect websites to load as quickly, almost as quickly, or faster, on their mobile phone compared to the computer they use at home.

Cisco (2012) forecasts that by the end of 2013, the number of mobile-connected devices will exceed the number of people on earth, and by 2017 there will be nearly 1.4 mobile devices per capita.

The ITU (February 2010) expects mobile Web access – via laptops and smart mobile devices – to overtake desktop Web within the next five years.

Strategy Analytics (March 2010) estimates that at the end of 2009 almost 530 million users browsed the mobile Web on their handset. This is forecast to rise to over 1 billion by 2015.*

Four out of five US smartphone owners, use phone to help with shopping, according to Google/Ipsos (April 2011). A survey of 5013 US smartphone owners. *

For every shopping activity, including researching products and prices, reviews, promotions and purchasing products, most respondents (61-81%) [US consumers] preferred browser to native app.

Source: Keynote/Adobe (October 2010) *

In order to stand out and be competitive in this newly emerging reality you’d need to be able to reach out to the millions of mobile users out there, many of whom are not in the possession of a PC and can only access the web from their mobile devices. You can do so, by creating an optimized-for-mobile site for your business or organization.

Responsive Web Design

 

Essentially the term was used in Responsive Web Design, an article by Ethan Marcotte on A List Apart. In general, the article proposed addressing the ever-changing landscape of devices, browsers, screen sizes and orientations by creating flexible, fluid and adaptive Web sites. Instead of responding to today’s needs for a desktop Web version adapted to the most common screen resolution, along with a particular mobile version (often specific to a single mobile device), the idea is to approach the issue the other way around: use flexible and fluid layouts that adapt to almost any screen.

Responsive websites are those crafted to use W3C CSS3 media queries with fluid grids and commonly also fluid images, to adapt the layout to the viewing environment. The idea of responsive web design is to make websites that fit multiple screen sizes. For the designer and developer that means they only have to work on one version of the website instead of designing one for desktop computers and another for mobile devices. Fluid grids, flexible images, and media queries are the three technical ingredients for responsive web design, but it also requires a different way of thinking.

Core Concepts
Three key technical features are the heart of responsive Web design:

  1. Media queries and media query listeners.
  2. A flexible grid-based layout that uses relative sizing.
  3. Flexible images and media, through dynamic resizing or CSS

Truly responsive Web design requires all three features to be implemented.

The key point is adapting to the user’s needs and device capabilities. Suppose a mobile user will be viewing your site on a small screen. Taking the user’s needs into account doesn’t just mean adapting your content to the screen size. It also means thinking about what that mobile user will require first when visiting your site and then laying out the content accordingly. Maybe you’ll present the information in a different order. Don’t assume the user won’t need access to all the site information because she’s on a mobile device. You might need to change the fonts or interaction areas to respond better to a touch environment. All these factors influence responsive Web design.

While mobile devices are changing the display landscape, with the appearance of more and more small screens, don’t forget what’s happening at the other end of the spectrum. Displays are also getting larger and with higher resolution. Having to serve both segments shouldn’t stop designers from being innovative on either.

Responsive Web Design or Adaptive Design has evolved from being a strong trend to become a reality of the web today. In a world that has been conquered by mobile devices over the past two decades, no one now understands a website that cannot be viewed on different screen resolutions, or at the very least the minimum provided on smartphones and tablets. The latest surveys on internet use in many countries no longer make a point of discussing the use of these portable devices because they are a reality: connections to the internet from these devices has grown exponentially over recent years.

If you have not updated we recommend you do. If you do not know this web design technique already we recommend you study, research and learn about it. Make sure your website displays correctly with mobile devices. Use a responsive website design that adapts to any device, create a separate mobile site, or use mobile web development tools to optimize your current site.
