Website Display and Screen Resolution

What your website looks like depends on  the screen resolution of the computer or device people are looking at the website on. Desktop screens are getting bigger and bigger (Today, most visitors have a screen resolution higher than 1024×768 pixels: www.w3schools.com and at the same time people are sitting in front of the TV surfing the net on their iPad and smart phones. The look of the website will vary depending on the device and screen resolution set up, and what browser you are using.

Ideally the most important information of your website should be able to be viewed instantly on any device. Your logo, contact details, and navigation should be “above the fold” on a desktop while on a mobile device your contact number  may need to be the most  prominent information.

Websites can be made  to be a fixed width or to stretch right across the screen. If your website looks great on a desktop but is unusable on a smartphone you have the option of  making a new website that works both on a desktop or mobile ( often referred to as a responsive website) or alternatively you can set up a separate mobile phone website.

Responsive Website

If you have an existing website that is due for a face lift it might be a good time to look at replacing it with a  responsive website.  The one website can be made to look great across most devices and different screen resolutions.
