A simple business practice at SySpree has been to put ourselves in our client’s shoes. Here’s one for the startups an fresh entrepreneurs we work with.This story is of a young lady who decided to put on her entrepreneur’s hat resulting in a small venture rolling out services which she was a specialist at .she had the skills but how does she get her customers, Oh well, take up a store but that means money and the moolah was never there. So probably the online route was the Launchpad for now. And already the first obstacle is here after all this world is so full of jargons. Talk about domains, hosting, Scripting, Moq ups, UI, UX etc Would someone want to keep decoding rather than focusing on the core stuff i.e. setting up the business. Time for the specialists to help you. This blog is meant to decode some jargon for beginners.
We start with the easiest one – website – In the right words, this is your house or your property or your office/shop on the internet. Here is where you welcome guests, potential customers, existing customers, friends, and fans etc for various purposes. Some variations of websites are called differently eg. Web portals. These in their basic form could be described as web pages that are specially designed to give access to multiple sources of information in a structure way. Websites are also referred to web portals as the complexity of the functionality and features on the site increase. But don’t be surprised if websites are called web portals interchangeably either out of ignorance or to create a cool perception.
Every home has an address and this is precisely what a domain name is to your website. It is how your visitors will find you on the web. The only difference here is that you need to have a domain name before the website is built unlike a home where you have the flexibility of building it even after you have built it. An alternate strategy is to build websites or portals offline, test them, ready them and then book your domain ie. If no one else has taken it already
Some land is required for a house to be built. So it is for a website – the word here is hosting. And the hosting service providers could be compared to the property developers who sell you or rather lease you some space on the internet to build your home. And the folks who build the home for you are the web developers most often called web designers. These could be individuals or organizations one of them being us SySpree – A web designing company in Thane.
Now that you start wondering, concepts such as Navigation, UI and UX come into play. Let’s take a look:
Navigation is how you cruise through the site, This could require predefined scrolls, clicks and some jazz. It is not a vanilla document after all. No we reach a portion of the blog which is slightly confusing and we’ll put in more effort to explain.
UI is User Interface, while UX is User Experience. User Experience refers to the functionality, usability, the interaction between the user and the website. User Interface design is the look, feel, presentation, and interactivity of the website. It is a process of visually guiding a user through the interface of the website across all platforms.
User Experience includes aspects such as content, the supporting systems, the structure of the website, and its design. Therefore, it includes User Interface but is not limited to it.
The main role of a UI designer is related to the graphic/visual aspect of a webpage. The main role of a UX designer is related to the technical background of the page that is not visible to user, but experienced.
Assume that a webpage is like a human body. Here, the organs that keep the life systems running would be the UX, whereas the cosmetic appeal and outward interaction are the UI.
Guess this should be a good start for many who start researching on how to start a website. We assure to go into further depth in our future blogs. Keep reading.
