Every student has filled an online form once in their life, and nowadays, it is a common thing as exams are conducted using filling the form first. But most students have to face trouble while filling an online form.
Here, you will learn about various problems students and aspirants face while filling the form and how you can fix several issues. But first, let’s see the best time to fill the online form.
The best time to fill an online form is during the night for several reasons, such as there is low traffic on the website during the night and people mostly fill forms in internet cafes and shops where they work according to office timing.
The highest traffic on most websites is between 10.00 am to 7.00 pm as most people fill forms during these hours.
Why do many websites crash while filling an online form?
As websites are hosted on servers, they have limited capacity to transfer data. If the data requests exceed the transfer limit, the website stops working.
In simple words, if a website is hosted on low-capacity servers and at a particular time, if thousands of people open individual sites, it stops working.
The same thing is observed in banks, as you may have heard about server down issues.
