Website Database Design

There are several companies that provide website database designing. They have a professional approach and a team of programmers that work on website database design. Knowledge of programming is essential to set up web databases. In addition, security measures need to be considered and integrated to prevent loopholes. These website database design companies provide suggestions and tips for setting up databases, as well as install the appropriate security measures.

A wide variety of database languages are available to choose from such as MySql, SOL server, Access and so on. MySql is the most widely used database language. It is an open source language. The selection of database design is dependant on the infrastructure of the company and its website.

The database management system is of two types: the server database and the desktop databases. The basic factor that differentiates these databases is their user applications. A server database is aimed at multi-user applications, whereas a desktop database is for single-user applications. Therefore it is important to have a clear understanding of your business type and its requirements, as the database selection depends on it. In summary you should discuss and evaluate the following points with the Website Database Design Company before selecting the database type :

The availability of hardware and the budget available for additional purchase.
The frequency at which the online data would be modified and the source responsible for its modification.
Server selection is also dependant on who the data maintainer is.
The database users and the tasks performed by them influences the database type needed.
Who is the resource held responsible for giving IT support to the database.
It is to be calculated whether a data access facility is provided over the Internet, and the required level of access should be supported.

Always be aware to avoid some commonly made mistakes in database designs. Some of them include deficiency of testing, improper documentation, low quality of web designing, and no usage of storage process for accessing the data. These complexities are better taken care of by a good database management company so that you can concentrate on core issues of your business.

 

Design Web from a Customer Perspective

Most of us have little time and are using what precious little time we do have to find what we already know we want. An impressive flash introduction doesn’t help because it is more about advertising or showing off some technical bells and whistles. That doesn’t impress me; I just want to get to the information that I am looking for: “skip intro”. What about you? What do you do when you land on one of these pages?

Website design is more art than science in my view, It is about stepping into the website visitors shoes and asking yourself, how usable is this for my customer? Can they find what they are looking for quickly? How many steps do they need to take to get to their information?

Of course the first step in this process has to be analysing the typical end users needs. What exactly is the problem they are trying to solve and how can we direct them to the information they need? How much information do they need? How do we know that our language is correct (for example communicating with a teenager requires different language to that used to communicate effectively with retirees). I know that this is an extreme example, but serves to illustrate the point. There have been many studies done into the way website users scan for information and the patterns that their eyes typically follow. I recommend that anyone considering website design familiarise themselves with these studies.

I want to emphasise a quick point. Note that I said that website visitors scan the web. That’s right. Studies have shown that people tend not to read a web page as much as scan for the information they need. Typically this happens in an “F” pattern, scanning across the top of the page first, then down the left and across the middle of the page.

 

Tips to Improve Look and Feel of your Website

Knowing a bit of colour psychology and symbolism is key to knowing which colours affect people in certain ways. colour perception is linked strongly to feelings and emotions including happiness, sadness and lust.

Colours can also demonstrate contrast and emphasise sections of a webpage that you may want the user to see including a promotion box or a buy now button.

Here’s a few of the most popular colours and what they make people feel like.

Yellow could be linked with danger, hope, friendliness and finances. used in moderation, it can be used to highlight sections on a webpage.

Green is a good colour to use to create a relaxed and calm website, it’s linked to nature, jealousy, money and the organic.

Blue is linked to business, strength, water and harmony and the paler blues could be used in website design to create a cool effect.

The colour blue is linked with confidence, loyalty and coolness. it is the most well-used colour in the world and it is used by numerous companies to create a feeling of confidence and strength.

Black is linked to feelings of mystery and refinement. A really popular colour in design and photographic web sites, it could be used to effectively contrast and liven up other colours.

Green is linked to organic, nature and relaxation. The paler shades of green can be used to give a relaxed feel to a website.

Just like green, brown is associated with nature, calm and relaxation. there is a trend to use wood textures as a background to give the feel of organics and the environment.

Light grey is commonly used to create shiny effects in web design. The colour can be associated with elegance, stability and boredom.

The colour orange is extremely young although also warm, stimulating and friendly. used in sites, it’s also welcoming.

Grey is a popular colour for backgrounds for sites. like black, it’s perfect for emphasising images and it creates perfect contrast between colours.

Colour’s role is not just to make the website look nice, it can evoke feelings and emotions from the target audience. choosing colours that annoy the user can have detrimental effects on your site, whilst cleverly choosing might mean that the site lives up to user expectation.
