Currently, Laravel framework has been used to develop more than 133,573 websites – all thanks to its advanced features and functionalities it possesses.
You see! Moreover, these numbers are never going to slow down in the future.

The dynamic capacities of laravel platforms make it very responsive and this is one of the key reasons it is likewise reliably included in the Google trends as well in the eyes of the end-users.
2. Safe and Secured
Laravel as a platform is pretty much well-versed in regards to safety and security. Also, you can ask your Laravel developers to create the codes and their structure overall that is best in regards to its security. Laravel offers a CSRF token, high-end encryption and API authentication. No other PHP frameworks offer this.

Of course, you will be facing unknown challenges like many others but with the right approach, such challenges can be easily overcome. For example by hiring a reputable web development company. But before you proceed any further, here are a few bunches of questions one needs to answer.
Q1. Why do you need to conduct web development? Just remember never to do anything just for the sake of doing it or because your peers are doing it. Following the herd will lead you nowhere. Instead, try to conduct in-depth research, know your objective better regarding laravel application development.
Q2. Why only this platform and not any other? Again I am not saying that you should be knowing your platform inside out but you must definitely have a basic understanding of the chosen platform.

However, you might end up reaching at least a six-figure cost. In case there are any budget restraints, offshore development is always a convenient option available for you.
3. Why is Laravel Best Suited For Startup Businesses?
Here comes the crucial part of the post, why Laravel turns out to be an ideal option to have an edge over competitors. You people ask me why. Let’s dive into the details.
1. Laravel is Easy to Learn and Use
Unlike other PHP development frameworks, Laravel turns out to be one of the easiest website development frameworks.
In fact, it is a cakewalk to learn or use Laravel. Again, even if you end up choosing an amateur developer, your choice of framework, i.e. Laravel can work wonders.
2. Excellent Traffic Management
Any business is difficult to deal with especially during its early days. And once it gains popularity and starts generating traffic, things get worse. No kidding! Because if you fail to manage these high customer requests, the bounce rate will also increase which is not good at all.
Laravel’s unique ‘message queue system’ can prove to be of some help. It helps in balancing the leading as well as seamless running of the web application.
3. Maximum Audience Reach
The success or failure of any startup business mostly depends on its ability to reach its potential customers in the least amount of time possible. Laravel framework comprises an immense number of features and functionality that not just maximizes the audience reach but also improves ROI of the business.
4. High Adoption Rate
Laravel as technology does have a high adoption rate, no two-ways about it. And it’s a great thing to consider. I mean if there is a technology that is being adopted at a fanatic pace, one can easily find relevant, well-experienced developers.
5. Large and Supportive Community
Since open source technologies are revolutionising, creating unique apps for businesses has become easier than ever. The large and active community of Laravel is run by experienced Laravel experts. In case, if a newbie or an amateur developer gets stuck, he can always ask the community for help!
6. A Performance Like Never Before
Another strong reason to choose Laravel is that this one has the capabilities to enhance the performance of the web application. Being a non-techie you may not be well-versed with the fact that due to certain features and functionalities, the site performance does get affected. But Laravel as a framework is full-fledged.
Tools like Memcached and Redis can be taken into consideration for the improvement of the app performance.
7. Quick Time-to-Market
Choosing the Laravel framework means you have already decided to speed up the development procedure and reduce the time to market for your end users.
This is it! On and all, laravel has succeeded in creating a benchmark for all the PHP frameworks. They better buck up or else they won’t be even considered in the league.
