What Is Responsive Web Design (RWD)?

Day by day, the number of devices, platforms, and browsers that need to work with your site grows. Responsive web design responds in accordance with the encountered devices, platforms, and browsers.

Responsive web design uses the same domain name (for example, "silviagraphics.com") across all devices and responds to the different viewports by providing the best user experience possible for each device. The different viewports include desktop monitors, laptops, tablets, and all mobile devices and their corresponding orientations (upright and sideways viewing by the user).

Benefits of Responsive Web Design

It saves you time and money

As our customer, you only have to pay for the development of one website. No mobile apps or mobile websites are necessary. There's only one website that needs support too, so this cuts down on monthly web support costs. Publishing new content is easy and more economical when there's only one place for it to go.

The development is more complex to begin with, but once your RWD is completed, the monthly costs will decrease significantly. Efficiency is gained because one "set" of code can account for the additional channels, allowing for a single code change to migrate across every channel.

Your site will always look good, and your customers find information easier

This is because RWD will to adapt to the width and height or each device, such as smart tablets and phones, and recognize any of the browsers ( e.g., Chrome, Internet Explorer, Firefox, Safari) that visitors might be using. This means that your potential customer is going to have a much better experience with your website. NOTE: A visitor is going to be a lot more likely to buy products and services from your website if it actually works on his or her device.

RWD helps with your Search Engine Optimization (SEO) Because responsive design uses one code across all channels, it is a lot more effective to configure the SEO inside of your website, plus we will be able to maintain your website a lot better.
