The correct answer is retrieved from the right question. Here are 6 Questions to Ask Before Developing a Single Page Website that will help you walk the correct way of developing a single page website -

1.When Do You Need A Single Page Website? Single page website is perfect if you are developing your personal website with minimum content. If you own a small business, like a café or an art gallery with very few products. If you are planning to launch a campaign, you do not need more than a single page for the website.

2.How to Design the Layout? Keep the design simple. Focus on the main content and portray it in a logical design so that when a visitor enters your website, they find the necessary information instantly. The site should be responsive and cross browser compatible. In present days, most people use mobile devices to access a website and the audience can access your site from any device they wish to. Add dynamic colour, gradient and fonts to make the content focused and readable on the desktop as well as mobile devices.

3.How to Plan the Site’s Content? Divide the page into sections and create individual headings for each section. It will be a good user experience if you add a navigation bar containing the section headers. Users can move to any section they want by just clicking on a nav link. Simple text content may get boring. Make it interesting by adding images at the breakpoint of each content. Do not forget to add the “back to top” button at the bottom of the page.

4.How to Use Media Elements? Add relevant video content to your website, users will be more engaged to your page. Many websites use image carousels with captions portraying the photo descriptions or how the site can serve the user.

5.How to Target the Browsers and User Zones? Fix your target zone. If you want to make your website available to the local or general audience, the 4 major browsers, Chrome, Firefox, IE and Safari are enough. However, if you want to increase your site’s ranking worldwide, there are other factors to consider. Perform cross-browser compatibility tests either on your local machine or on cloud platforms like Lambatest to find out whether your site is rendered correctly in all of them.

6.How to Make Your Site Secure? If your site deals with sensitive data, like collecting messages and email details from users, security of your site should be on top priority. The best way to perform this is to secure your website by purchasing an SSL certificate and enable HTTPS. SSL certificates usually make your site secure by creating a safe connection between the server and the client.
