On very many web sites there is an opportunity to register, but whether this function actually is so necessary?
Really, registration can be necessary only in two cases.
If necessary to limit access to any functions of the web site. For example, registration at forums allows to send messages only to regular users. Also registration prevents a possibility of placement of a spam in comments.
If indices of number of regular customers are necessary. Very many advertisers estimate potential partners not only in indices of Liveinternet counters, but also in the number of the registered users.
Thus, it turns out that the possibility of registration on the website carries out certain tasks which can be solved only a similar method. Now let’s think why registration for resources which functionality isn’t present a sense is necessary to hide from visitors, and the number of regular users doesn’t matter.
Here also the contradiction opens. Often function of registration is included at once after installation of content management system, and very many webmasters leave this opportunity, even without thinking whether it is necessary to them. In principle, existence of registration doesn’t reduce a website usability. The visitor can quite use a resource functionality, without being registered. However the strange webmasters who forbid access to certain opportunities of a resource meet, without benefiting anything as a result of it. For example, it is possible to find in a network even the websites business cards where for downloading of a price on services or goods it is required to be registered. Owners of such resources should think: and suddenly the potential client will decide not to cooperate with the company represented by the similar website because of banal unwillingness to undergo registration process?
On the Internet it is quite often possible to meet people who try to leave as little as possible the personal data anywhere. Of course, such behavior is extremely similar to paranoia, however to lose because of the function of clients which isn’t turned off in time at least silly. It is necessary or not registration on the website, each webmaster decides. The main thing that this choice was based not on desire to add to the project of solidity such not too suitable method, and on specific objectives.
