Avoiding the common mistakes

Wednesday 4 November 2009


If you are new to web design and are making use of a web hosting plan to give your business a net presence for the first time, it is easy to fall into the trap of trying too hard. Yes, you want your website to be eye-catching and modern, and you want to take advantage of the latest technologies to show that you are at the cutting edge of technology, but you don’t want the whole thing to look like a design disaster.

One of the most common mistakes that new designers make is to take advantage of all the ‘bells and whistles’ that are available, regardless of whether they are suitable to your specific situation. Rotating icons and flashing banners are a good example of things which can look great for ten seconds, but become very annoying after a very short period of time.

The best designers use web hosting to try to balance functionality, usability and aesthetics. Functionality assumes that interfaces to online queries, forms or database functions are easy and simple. Usability means that users should be able to access the information and features they require without a problem. Finally, aesthetics is the imperative to give your site a professional look which remains in keeping with your branding and sales requirements.

CWCS web hosting plans give you access to a wide variety of professional web creation tools, operating system software and bandwidth choices, allowing you to create good looking sites that will add cachet to your business and increase your sales of goods and services.
