What is Component-Based Design

Component-based design involves designing sites from ready-made components. These components are created and programmed segments that are used as building blocks for your site. One of the features of the components is that you can reuse them on all subpages. The components offer high level versatility because you can re-use them because they enable you to share and rearrange your website without involving developers. With the many readymade components, your site becomes a universal tool. These components are easy and intuitive, and you do not need to have web development skills to use them.
