Professional development is essential to the success of a website. Design means the form and style of the webpage, that is, it is not enough to create a webpage using HTML and CSS, but the page has to be useful and attractive to the consumer.
Aspects like the layout, the colors, the distribution of components, their size and shape, and other elements of the design and composition of the site enter in the design.
This introduction to HTML will help us understand how the WEB works; how web pages are made and what is behind them, as well as how they may be accessed from anywhere in the world.
HTML is the most basic terminology on the web, this fact makes it the most important and easy to learn when someone wants to starts their Custom web development service.
The success of a website does not only depend on good content being displayed, but a lot of the success is due to good design. A page with a good design must be both useful and appealing, for this, we have to take into account not only functionality or usability but also aesthetics. When creating a page we must think above all from the viewpoint of the consumer, that is to say, the page is easy to use, and attractive, not just for its content but also visually.
In principle, one would think that great design is only a matter of implementing good taste and common sense. However, this might not be enough since, in style, there are a set of criteria and guidelines that go beyond private or fashion preferences.
Limitations for web developers
Web developers also face limitations. There are set of conditions that depend on the medium or substance with which we design, as well as the type of design.
Download from a host: Web pages have to be downloaded from a remote web server, this makes the bandwidth of the user’s connection an important factor. Developers need to compress the size or”weight” of page (Kb that it occupies) so that it does not take long to load. Your CSS must be compressed, for this you can use CSS compression which is best tool to minify CSS.
Image size: The “weight” of the page is dependent on the”weight” of the amount of all its components or files. Undeniably, the main documents are images and multimedia files.
We can not do without the pictures on the page, but we can reduce its weight without reducing its quality. In addition, we talk about this on the Pictures page on the web / Generalities.
Browsers: Web pages are files that must be considered in software called browsers. Not all browsers view pages in precisely the identical way. To this is added that more and more users connect to the Internet through other devices that are not computers (mobiles, tablets, I-Phones, etc); Pages may not display exactly the same way on these devices.
Interactivity: Every page has a collection of interactive components that we must take into account. Some of these are usually lists of links, forms, or other elements that can make the page more dynamic. The placement of these elements has to be carried out so that they are incorporated into the page.
Other elements: There are another series of elements that we have to take into account in the design of webpages, among them, the screen resolution of the consumer, the type of letter used, the dominant colors and lines, the distribution of the contents, etc..
Web design has its own characteristics, to what has been said above we must take into account the content of the page and also the mindset of the consumers of the Web.
Functionality and Usability
Functionality and usability are also known as a utility, that is, the page has to be easy to see and use by the consumer, that is, the user finds in a first glance what he is searching for, that the links and other elements are clear so the user doesn’t leave the page because of lack of clarity.
The aesthetics of a webpage has to do with the design, the colors, the distribution of these components, typeface, etc.. All this must be based on the content, the type of user to whom the page is directed, the type of website to which it belongs, etc.. The page must be appealing to the consumer so that its design is in accord with the contents.
All right, let’s start with something so simple. I am positive that everyone here knows what a web page is, most likely this course you’re performing on a web page, right? Of course.
For people who don’t know, website and website are completely different things, what occurs is that these phrases are often used without giving it much significance, however, they need to be differentiated.
What is the meaning of term “website”?
Web page: it’s a digital electronic document that contain text elements, images, videos, multimedia, links, forms, etc. In addition, a web page has a URL or commonly referred to as a link. For example https://www.solutionhow.com/contact-us.
Website: It is a set of web pages, which are structured and organized in such a manner it is navigable, usable, and aesthetic for users or search engines like Google. Furthermore, a website has a domain name that’s unique throughout the internet. For instance https://www.solutionhow.com
Perfect! So you already know that a website includes web pages. Let us leave it there and don’t complicate ourselves.
So somehow we can conclude that the world wide web is essentially an ocean of web pages, there is no other, if you browse the internet you are surfing a sea of web pages. But what is behind those web pages?
Behind all the web pages there’s HTML code, the structure of the web pages are created with HTML and in this class, we will learn it.
