We specialize in building custom websites in WordPress. WordPress is a content management system (CMS) that uses PHP and MySQL, which runs on our web hosting service. Features include a plug-in architecture and a template/theme system. As a practice we do not use pre-built templates (themes) that are available for WordPress. Rather, as WordPress specialists, we design custom themes from scratch in-house to ensure that our clients have truly unique sites that reflect their own individuality and creativity.
We believe that many pre-existing themes are actually dangerous to use for many sites because they are developed with one thing in mind and then made to apply to anyone’s needs. This is the online equivalent to trying to turn a Taco Bell building structure into a hotel by saying “hey, they’re both businesses, right? So instead we prefer to forgo running into those problems and we build our clients a custom designed theme for WordPress.
WordPress was used by more than 19.3% of the top 10 million websites as of 2014. WordPress is the most popular blogging system in use on the Web at more than 60 million websites. One huge advantage that we love about using it as a CMS is the amount of customizable plug-ins that exist at our fingertips in the WordPress community. We can integrate virtually limitless ecommerce stores, shopping carts, user registrations, event calendars, inventory tracking, databases and more. WordPress makes the back-end administrative site management very easy for anyone to use. Our ecommerce clients especially enjoy this! SEO is also made easy through several great WordPress plugins that we use.
Another popular content management system we’ve worked with in the past is Joomla. While we no longer build new sites in Joomla (anything that can be done in Joomla can be done better with WordPress now), we will still gladly perform site maintenance or optimization on existing Joomla sites… so don’t feel afraid to ask us if you have a Joomla site!
Contact us about your website needs and we’ll see if WordPress is a good fit for you.
