When developing a website, the speed of each page loading is essential because of the myriads of competition in an online environment. Not only does a website have to be attractive with quality visual and content, but also a website needs to interactive effectively to keep consumers engaged. It is like the importance of communication as the keys to success in businesses, an effective website shows (or communicates) credibility of products and/or services. Microinteractions, for instance, enables interaction by triggering consumers to interact with businesses on websites such as a login feature.
“If you care about user experience, you should care about microinteractions,” says Smart Design’s creative director Dan Saffer. He continues explaining that microinteractions are the icon buttons in which sets a status of a message on a website, even muting the status on mobile devices such as a cell phone.
So again, not only speeding up webpages, but also it is of essence to be sure that a website has good speed to actually function effectively and to be productive in promoting products and/or services in an online environment. Especially in today’s digital era where websites can be designed to speak to the consumers about what a company has to offer. Monitoring and load testing is also helpful when looking at the reliability of web hosting and web servers. Using a tool like Dotcom-Monitor for load testing (available at Dotcom-Monitor.com) is important to make sure that your website. There are also other free tools like HP’s LoadRunner that can also be helpful in this type of testing.
That is why when developing a website, choosing a reputable proxy server for content delivery network, otherwise known as content distribution network (CDN) is also a critical process when making decisions about distribution of a website for high performance. Futhermore, ensuring that you have a good, reliable server to host your website on is very important according to WebHosting Buddy and a variety of other sources.
“There’s no return on investment if your content doesn’t reach viewers and readers, says Maryanne Gaitho from SimpliLearn’s website talking about content distribution.
Generally speaking, a business website’s performance and speed relies on CDN to reach the target audience. And, as mentioned earlier, microinteractions are needed to accomplish simple tasks such as turning on and off functions through icons to keep consumers engaged. It is the cosmetics of a website that attracts the consumers to explore and read websites.
