Update The Header Of A Website



Update the Header of a Website. The header is the top area of a website that is available on every page of a site. It usually contains the title of the site, contact info, social buttons and a company logo. It also contains the navigation menu of a website.


An important thing to remember about the header area of a website, is that it is displaying the information that is always available throughout the site. That is, from any page this information is visible to the user. Also the controls and buttons in this section are always available.


Because the header is so prominent it is very important to have this section look good. The header sets the tone for the rest of the website. Because of this, many business websites will have the business logo located in the header as well.
