When you use flash to build your website, you want to create a great user experience for your visitors. The better the experience is that people have who are coming to your website the longer they will stay and the more likely they will convert into customers or clients.
So how do you create a great user experience?
Of course, a very important factor is the design of your website, it’s structure and most importantly the speed of how fast it loads. Load time is also a very important factor in regards to search engine optimization. But, this is not what we want to cover in today’s post. In this article, we want to focus on the user experience and how it is affected by load time.
The way load time has an influence on the user experience is quite obvious. If your site takes too long to load or if your web application does not run smoothly enough, almost every visitor will leave your site right away.
Since it takes some time to turn a visitor into a customer or client, the conversion rate of your website will increase with the time people spend on your site.
A key factor to ensure quick load times of a website and to have a web application running in a smooth fashion; is fast web hosting. Unfortunately, it is not that easy to find a reliable, fast and stable web hosting service. There are so many companies that are offering web hosting, but a lot of them are offering very low quality.
Last week I found two great web hosting blogs that offer some great advice in order to find the best hosting for your needs.
The first site is “Cheap Web Hosting Solutions“, which is a great resource for everything related to shared web hosting.
The second site I found is “Anatolia Hosting Co.“, which is also a great resource to finding reliable and fast hosting companies for your flash websites.
As I have already stated above, hosting your website on a fast and reliable server will help to load your site as fast as possible. Therefore, I highly recommend taking a closer look on both sites mentioned above in this post. They provide great education on web hosting, which will help you to pick the best hosting company for your needs.
