Last month Web Hosting Hub Launched its new website design making it much more streamlined, sleek and modern in appearance. To be honest the previous design was not the worst we have seen, and that only goes to credit Web Hosting Hub in doing all it can to give confidence and usability to its users.
In part we suspect the new design was prompted with the new Mobile Friendliness Google Algorithm update which came into force on the 21st April. This gives priority in the Mobile Serps to websites that are easy to use on Mobile Phones. Web Hosting Hub’s new design is responsive, meaning that the web site will adapt itself to the device it is being viewed on, whether desktops, laptops, tablets or smartphone.
In addition to being responsive, the new design is written to all the latest HTML5 standards, with a much smarter and streamlined navigation.
It is not just the homepage that has seen the love of the designers. There are some smart design concepts to be found deeper in the website.
The Hub Power Unit
They have included a rather clever description of the HUB Power Unit, a collection of resources to easily demonstrate the differences between plans.
This is a great way to show that whilst Web Hosting Hub offer unlimited hosting, that doesn’t relate to resources such as Processing Time, Memory, Disk I/O or Dynamic Resource Allocation. We think this transparency is very important, with many other unlimited hosting providers choosing to leave this information to the small print in their terms and conditions.
The Right Plan For You
Another smart feature of their new website design is the diagram showing recommendations for their plans depending on what type of website you need to host.
They split it into 3 categories:
- CMS, WORDPRESS, JOOMLA!
- GEO-LOCATED TRAFFIC
- HIGH EMAIL TRAFFIC
- STREAMING MEDIA
- HIGH DATA TRANSFER
- DYNAMIC SITES
- LARGE SIMULTANEOUS CONNECTIONS
- RUNNING CRONS
The cynical among us would see this as an attempt to encourage people to sign up for more expensive plans, but here we see that their basic plan is perfectly ok for the majority of websites such as WordPress or Joomla.
Web Design Services
It is no wonder that Web Hosting Hub have created a really great design, with some really well thought out content. They are one of the few web hosting providers that actually offer web design services in-house. Just take a look at some of the websites designed for their customers:
