What is HTML5 and why do I want it for my website?

November 5, 2017


When we started 27 Creative, it was founded on just a few key ideas: simplicity, affordability and making high-quality websites accessible to more small businesses and solopreneurs.


That is a big part of the reason we love creating our websites using the WIX online platform. It is affordable, it is easy to maintain, and best of all, they are continually improving, offering some of the very best website technology out there!


Now, we promised simplicity... so we don't want to bore you. But we do think it's important for you to know why we suggest WIX for our clients.


One of the best things about designing with WIX? HTML5.



What is HTML5?

Essentially. websites of the past, used to need three different types of code to "describe" the complete website they create: HTML, which provides the structure; Cascading Style Sheets (CSS), which take care of presentation; and JavaScript, which makes things happen.


So what does HTML5 have to do with this?

Well, HTML5 is actually an awesome combination of all 3 types of code.



Why is HTML5 important?

HTML5 was designed to be kind of like the Swiss Army Knife of website development that can deliver almost everything you'd want to do online without requiring additional software, like browser plugins.


From videos and music, to apps, graphics, and more, HTML5 helps create beautiful, functional, seamless websites. Websites with HTML5 use better web standards, which results in more efficient content, improved performance and faster load times, according to Joel Lee of MakeUseOf.


AND, because HTML5 is also cross-platform, it works across all device types, including tablets, smartphones, laptops, desktops and Smart TVs. If your browser supports HTML5 (which it most likely does), it should work flawlessly, says TechRadar.



What does this mean for you & your new website?

HTML5 is a great tool for us, as the designer of your website, as it gives us the ability to create a flawless website for you.


More importantly, HTML5 means a few great things for you, too:

  1. No more browser plugins -- which means no more outdated versions of Flash, and less security risks

  2. A more seamless design that will look great on all devices

  3. A website running on the best technology out there
