With all this complexity, website testing is now more important than ever.
To handle all of these issues in testing websites, we’ve categorized our website testing services into the following:
API Testing: Often overlooked, but perhaps the most important type of testing as a broken or partially functional API can lead to errors out of the blue. With software becoming more componentized, we are left vulnerable behind the opacity of the interface. Testing the interface thoroughly backwards and forwards and across 3rd party components that it may interact with is a critical element in all test efforts. For Ecommerce sites that use 3rd party payment integrations, this should be an integral component of your website testing strategy.
Functionality Testing: A functional test covers basic functionality, including menus, links and forms, test runs, role authentication as well as complicated features such as database connections and third-party component integration.
Manual Regression & Automated Web Application Testing: Any source code changes to a web app generally require some level of regression testing. This can either be 100% manual regression testing or more often, a mix of manual and automated regression testing, with automation employed strategically where it makes the most sense from an application usage point of view.

Website Usability Testing: Heuristic inspection-based testing that evaluates usability issues such as flow, efficiency, errors, success rate, content checking, and aspects of user help functions.
Compatibility Testing: Addresses browser compatibility, operating system compatibility, mobile device compatibility, and printing options. With device options proliferating, understanding what can get you to 80/20 with the least amount of effort, time, and money while ensuring your coverage is crucial.
Performance Testing: Users disappointed by slow load times can easily type in another URL. Load testing web applications and web stress testing with benchmarking and application performance evaluation under various environment characterizations, including connection speeds, user loads, and user activities.
Website Security Testing and Web Application Penetration Testing: for potential vulnerabilities as identified by the Open Web Application Security Project (OWASP), plus XBOSoft’s own list of top security threats.
