Have you been feeling sad over the past few months? Well, you’re not alone, as nearly 60% of Brits are feeling unhappy more occasionally since the start of the pandemic*.
If you need help to get an extra dose of positivity, web hosting experts from Fasthosts are here to give the nation a boost with the creation of the ‘Happiest Website Ever’. Trust us, this site will leave you beaming.
The Happiest Website Ever has been expertly crafted to induce happiness in each visitor. Fasthosts surveyed the UK public to discover the things that make them happiest, and created the website to reflect these back at the user.
Then, using visitor feedback, eye tracking technology and facial expression monitoring, the team optimised the site to ensure maximum happiness. The results now show that the website is guaranteed to make you smile, and on average users smile for 80% of their time on the site!
The results also show that out of the various images and activities on the site, users smiled the most at seeing a happy old couple, reading a compliment, and seeing pictures of food.
Dennis Relojo-Howell, the founder of Psychreg, adds that “the images on this website demonstrate the psychological findings that seeing or sharing happy images can make us feel good. Furthermore, clicking onto the page and being exposed to these images can positively affect users’ perceived happiness, hormone levels, productivity, and stress levels.”
The top 10 things that make Brits truly happy!
As part of the study over 2000 Brits were asked about what in life brings them the most happiness and joy. Unsurprising, a sunny sky came out on top, followed by receiving a compliment, someone smiling at you and watching a sunset.

|1||A sunny blue sky||92%|
|3||Someone smiling at you||91%|
|4||Watching a sunset||91%|
|5||Sound of the sea||90%|

Commenting on the research, Michelle Stark, sales and marketing director at Fasthosts says: “With so much negativity surrounding us over the past year, it’s important to try and get a mood boost from accessible things around you. That’s why we’ve conducted this research to give you the Happiest Website Ever.
It’s amazing to see how much this website can positively affect hormones, productivity and stress levels – and there’s no better time for us to have a boost.”
