Websites are being viewed on a diverse range of devices today. No longer is it sufficient to design a web page that works only on a computer screen at 800 x 600 pixels resolution. Screens on portable devices such as tablets and smartphones are small, and web pages designed the old way will appear small and difficult to read and navigate.
The new dynamic website designs solve this problem by responding to the request from the client device with a tailored web page. Depending on what type of device is being used to view the website, the web page sent back for viewing is formatted so that it looks best on that type of device. Tablets get sent a web page formatted to look best on tablets, smartphones pages for smartphones etc.
This is achieved by dynamically generating web pages. Every request from a client device contains a description of the device itself. Using this information, the website can simplify and resize the web page sent back, and change the way that features on the web page function so that they are easier for the client to use.
Here at Penshurst Web Services we design all our websites using the latest technology that creates these dynamic web pages. Try it. The website you are viewing is made this way. If you are looking for a website that your clients can access with ease on any type of portable device, then talk to us about how we can help.
