What is WordPress?
WordPress is an open source content management system (CMS) which means that it’s free for anyone to use. It is the most popular publishing platform in the world. Technically, there are two different versions of it: WordPress.com and WordPress.org.
This is a website hosting service that allows you a limited range of customisation options for your WordPress site. It provides you with a ‘yoursite.wordpress.com’ domain, and is typically used for personal blogs and the like.
The self-hosted WordPress.org is the CMS software that you use to power a website. There are no limits to the way that you can modify and customise your website with this option. This is the option usually chosen by organisations and businesses.
WordPress is the world’s most popular publishing platform, due largely to its simplicity and ease of use. It offers a number of useful features that make editing and managing a website and its content quick, easy and simple. Some of these features include:
- Easy installation and upgrades
- Simple and intuitive user interface
- Thousands of available themes and plugins
- Built-in media library with drag and drop functionality
- Flexibility for developers
- Scheduled publishing and publishing from mobile
- Drafts and previews.
WordPress web development & design
We’ve got almost 10 years’ experience working with WordPress, which allows us to offer a wide range of WordPress services to existing and prospective clients. Some of these include:
We can carry out upgrades so that you’re always using the latest version of WordPress. We do this by backing up your site database and files, performing the upgrade, and then testing that everything works as it should.
If you have an existing site that you’d like to transfer to WordPress, we can help with this migration – no matter what CMS you currently use. After the migration, we can perform a site-wide check for any missing content or URLs, and we can also ensure that it’s properly optimised for search engines.
We can test your site to make sure that it’s as secure as it can be, to help put your mind at ease. We can also provide additional levels of security above the WordPress best practice recommendations.
Our custom WordPress development services could provide you with a fast, highly secure and visually stunning theme, and an intuitive dashboard that makes it easy for you to edit and maintain your site.
