What Is A One-Page Website and Why Would You Need One?

Dec 18, 2017Business Strategy, Web Design

What is a one-page website and why would you use one?

By definition, a one-page website is simply a single page website that uses only one HTML page. When clicking on navigation links, the user scrolls down the page or jumps to that particular content’s section. The website may use JavaScript, jQuery, CSS3, or Ajax to accomplish this movement.

Building one-page websites within WordPress allows for speedy builds and can be economical and easy to edit for startups and businesses with no previous online presence or those that don’t have a lot of content.

An article titled Why Long Scrolling Sites Have Become Awesome, written by The Next Web highlights why long scroll sites are very popular.

With the current increasing trends in mobile device usage, one-page websites are very well suited for consuming content on mobiles. Long scroll will continue to adopt more advanced effects as mobile devices evolve towards improved functionality and load times.

Try it out yourself

We have a range of pre-designed one-page layouts, both on WordPress and responsive HTML sites depending on the needs of your business. These both offer inspiration and highlight how useful these types of websites can be. They would be tailored to suit your brand and content and offer a very quick solution for a new business website. Custom designs are also possible – it’s what we specialise in.
