Analysis of pHing.com - Summary of Main Features
First of all, clicking on the URL
brings us to a cover page with a blue background and a
very simple and plain logo of the company in the middle.
It's not very attractive, in the usual sense of bright
colours and animations, but it does have the ability to
induce one to click on it. Perhaps it's the simplicity
that arouses the curiosity.
There are 3 options
being presented on the cover page: (1) to download flash,
(2) to enter, and (3) to skip flash introduction. This
ensures that no one is excluded from access, and also
allows a lot of room of choice for the users.
- Download Flash
- a new window will
open, showing the homepage which one can download
- users can go back
to phing.com easily as the old window still
- Users will see a
brief macromedia flash presentation (gives the
idea that these people really know their stuff
about web designing).
- After this, users
will be brought to the core page of the site,
consisting of introduction of what the company
is, what services they provide, their strengths
(as a web hosting and design company), their
clients, and how to contact them. All this
information can be easily reached with the aid of
simple, yet elegant navigational design found at
the top right hand side.
- Skip Flash Intro
- Users are brought
straight to the site's core page. Excellent
design for those users who has browsers which
does not support flash, or who cannot be bothered
to waste time on the presentation.
