There are a few things you need to keep in mind when building a web application. Paying attention to them will ensure your visitors get the best possible user experience while on your application.

In this article we take a look at 3 things to consider when building a web application to ensure it offers the solution it was originally designed for.

1. SPA or MPA

One of the key considerations when building a web application is to decide the development approach that best suits your project. You have two main choices in this regard: a Single-Page Application (SPA) and a Multi-Page Application (MPA).

A Multi-Page Application is the traditional way websites were built with each page more or less unique and with a URL that gives access to that particular page.

A Single-Page Application loads a single page and then uses dynamic updates built on technologies like AJAX and client-side JavaScript to update the content of the page based on user interaction.

Answering the SPA vs MPA question for your web application will depend on the specific requirements of your project. MPAs are better for SEO and are more scalable making them great for eCommerce projects and blogs while SPAs are great for applications that perform specific tasks like SaaS solutions and social networks or application where organic SEO is not a priority like closed communities.

2. Security

One of the most important things to consider when building a web application is security. You need to test your application of security vulnerabilities to ensure that your users data is secured at all times.

Testing your application will enable you uncover vulnerabilities like SQL injection, cross-site scripting, and other security issues that can make your web application easy to breach for hackers.

Using advanced encryption technologies like AES cybersecurity, you will ensure that user data and traffic on your application are encrypted protecting the service from data breaches.

3. Scalability

When building a web application, it is not easy to know how large the traffic would be. Your web app can gain traction very fast and if you did not prepare for the traffic surge, your application can crash leading to a poor user experience, loss of revenue, or the end of your business.

This is why your web application should be built on scalable technologies and resources. Your application should be hosted on a server where you can easily adjust hardware resources like memory and processing capacity to the needs of the web application.

This ensures that when traffic is high you can upgrade to add more resources that will handle the increased demand. This also works the other way, you can reduce resource usage when traffic is low and save some money in the process.

Building a web app can be a bit of a challenge, but with proper planning you will get it right. Before building a web application, you need to ensure you choose the design approach that works best for your application. The security and scalability of the application should also be a top priority.
