FAQs Re Browser Based Website Systems
Unless you keen to learn how to hand code a website – absolutely. Plus you will have to learn a whole lot more than you ever realised. What was best practice many years ago has moved on. Effectively if you want “over the air updates” then a browser based system is the easiest.
Not as a rule, however if you have an old computer although it might appear able to view websites that does not follow that you will be able to edit a browser based website. – Security issues can defeat that objective.
Editing a picture before you upload it will provide more control over its size. A picture snapped on a modern pone might be 9mbs in size – and 4640 pixels wide. This is more than double the width of what a typical large computer screen can display.
There are many answers to this question – 1920px is one width and 1080px deep will fill most screens. The larger a picture the larger the image file. Chances are that for most websites more than one quarter of your traffic will come via a mobile phone, often 2/3rds to 3/4qtr. Google wants websites which work well on mobile phones so that goes against large file sizes as that will slow down your site. Smaller pictures could be 600px wide 400px deep.
10mbs down, 2mbs up would be OK. Faster would be better, however you will be perfectly fine with 100mbs down and 20mbs up. There is no need to pay for a faster connection.
