With the responsive design capabilities of Kentico CMS, a single website design is automatically adapted on the fly for different screen sizes to provide a full desktop experience on any mobile device. Going beyond the standard responsive design technique, developers can also control web page layout on the server side, defining specific mobile layouts for particular device profiles, ensuring the page only contains rendered content for faster load times.
