What Is Responsive Web Design and Why Does Your Site Need It?

If you’ve been exploring the idea of getting a new website, or having an existing one updated, you’ve probably heard the term “responsive design.” What exactly is it?

In technical terms, web designers use cascading style sheets (CSS) and hypertext markup language (HTML) to automatically enlarge, hide, move, or shrink content on your website to fit various size screens.

In simple terms, responsive web design is the automatic formatting of your website to display it nicely on various devices. That is, the elements simply rearrange to fit different screen sizes. If your site has a responsive design, visitors will be able to browse it from many kinds of devices.


Why does it matter? In 2014, for the first time in history, the number of website visits that originated from mobile devices surpassed the number of website visits from traditional computers. This means that more people are browsing the Internet from smartphones and tablets versus desktops and laptops.

Where can you get a responsive site? These days, you don’t have to hire a special mobile web designer to create a mobile website. Responsive web design has become an industry standard with today’s design themes, so you’re getting a 2-for-1 deal! That equals savings for you!

A theme with built-in responsive language not only saves you money, but it saves times since it doesn’t require maintaining separate sites.
