What is a single page website?
- One page
- Easy to navigate
- Clean and simple
- Effective, streamlined content
Simply put, single page websites are websites that only have one page. They are designed to keep everything you want to say, and everything your user wants to achieve, within one scrolling webpage.
No need to navigate to multiple pages, information such as who you are, what you do, where you are and how to get in touch is intuitively gathered together in one place.
Often these sections are organised within specific panels to make sense of the flow. They can still have a menu of course, although rather than loading other pages, this will send you through hyperspeed to the relevant point on the same page.
Although single page sites can sometimes take a little longer to load initially, because of their length, once loaded the user experience is often slicker.
These sites are often kept clean and simple but there’s no limit to the range of rich media you can add. Single page sites often include videos, galleries, maps and forms to engage the audience, without overwhelming them with choices.
