What is WordPress?
WordPress (WP) is a state-of-the-art, award-winning publishing platform and powers over 30% of all the websites on the World Wide Web. WP features a secure system with regular updates by dedicated developers. There are thousands of plugins available that extend the functionality of the CMS, offering site visitors many interactive options.
How long will it take?
Depending on your site requirements and how fast you send us images, text or other documentation, the project could be completed in 5 to 10 days.
What about domain names & hosting?
We don’t offer website hosting ourselves but prefer to leave that side of things to the experts, while we concentrate on providing our customers with the best website consultancy and maintenance service that we can.
There are a number of web hosts in the market who offer reasonable monthly fees and who often include domain names with their hosting packages. We will walk you through the different options available. We are not affiliated to any web hosts so you will be able to make your own informed choice.
You won’t ever be locked into a hosting contract with us and you can therefore deal with the hosting company directly should you ever wish to update your website in future or move your site to a new web host.
When we install contact forms, booking plugins, event plugins or shop plugins we always work with reputable plugin developers who actively and regularly update their software with security and other updates. We insist on working with WordPress plugin developers who offer a full after-sales support service, as we do ourselves. Therefore we only use tried and tested plugins listed on WordPress.
Design licenses & maintenance contracts
You are never locked into a web design service or maintenance contract. Additionally, you own the software license on your WordPress theme and are free to handle the updates or deal with any support issues in future should you wish to do so.
We do offer a monthly subscription maintenance and update service. Read more about our WordPress Maintenance Packages.
Content – images and text
A client would usually supply the copy (text content) and images either because they know their business better than we do or they have someone to write their content. Should you need help writing copy or editing content for your website let us know and we can discuss this further.
If you already have a website that you are wanting to update, we can copy over the content and images if required.
Each new site is secured with a security plugin. Additionally, we can discuss installing and setting up robust security plugins that will help to secure your website.
Each site that we design follows the basic rules of SEO. Should you wish to have advanced SEO techniques applied please do contact us for a quotation.
All sites are automatically submitted to the Google Search Console for indexing.
Ongoing updates & maintenance
Finally, all our websites are available with an optional Maintenance package once deployed.
