Design Potential – no grid restrictions means more artistic flexibility.
Separate Content – each page is an island unto itself until you link them.
Secure Web Pages – it’s very difficult for hackers to gain access to your host’s c-panel and this is the only way to manipulate your files.
Practical Applications for HTML Webpages
If all you need is an online business card and a means for people to get a hold of you, a simple and secure HTML site may be all you need, especially if your information rarely changes.
Stand alone pages not linked to your website can be used to share select information without the fuss of creating special accounts – just send them the file address.
A static page can be a portal for different websites that you need linked together where visitors choose their destination, like customer vs distributor pages or alternative locations.
A Public Notice
A temporary page that you can turn on and off, these pages are frequently used to announce an upcoming website or when it’s down from maintenance.
This page could be a site map, making it easy finding specific information and downloadable files on your more complex websites, links to your social media and other online resources.
Branded to coordinate with your main site, this webpage can be used as the template for your email promotions and kept as an archive of past newsletters.
From Design to Working Website
After a consultation with the client to get an idea of their style preferences, a couple of concepts are provided as a flattened jpg images for the client to choose from. Revisions are to be expected, but these are limited to within reason. It’s entirely up to the client how much they want to invest in the design process.
Once the design is approved the image is then turned into a webpage, with style.css sheet included. It may also become a template that defines the overall website design and common elements such as the navigation.
