Web Design Austin – WordPress

WordPress is a popular open source content management system that we regularly use for Austin Website Design.
The most cost-effective way to implement a WordPress site is to customize an existing theme to make it your own.  The other option is to develop a complete custom theme that functions exactly like you need it to.  Have a look at our portfolio and Contact us for a free consultation.

  • What is WordPress?

    WordPress is the most popular free open source content management systems (CMS) or Website creation tool in use today. Statistics show that 25% of all websites are running on the WordPress platform.   WordPress most commonly utilizes open-source technologies such as Linux, Apache, MySQL and PHP.

    How our WordPress Implementation Differs from the Rest

    There are thousands of “Themes” that are available for free and to purchase but choosing a well-developed theme can be a difficult and time-consuming process, to say the least.  Many themes have a great-looking front-end design but are very difficult to develop outside of their intended scope and next to impossible for the average end-user to edit.

    After testing many themes, we have found the perfect match for us as developers/designers and you the customer.   This allows for:

    • Faster design and development process
    • Flexible Framework
    • Theme updates and support
    • 100% Responsive design
    • Easy, Customer friendly editing

    All of our WordPress themes are device responsive so your website will scale and display properly on phones to desktop computers.  Statistics show that 65% of the traffic to your website in 2017 is from a mobile device so having a device responsive site is imperative.

    Our WordPress implementations come with:

    • Security Plugins
    • Caching Plugins
    • WooCommerce – eCommerce integration
    • SEO Plugin
    • Plugins that are specific to your business needs are also added

    Options Include:

    • Automatic core and plugin updates
    • Sucuri Security services, CDN and Firewall

    Plugins

    Extending the functionality of your WordPress site can be accomplished by using a variety of pre-designed plugins that are available online.  If you can think of an application that you need, there is good chance a plugin has already been developed for it.  Some are free and some must be purchased.

    WordPress Hosting

    We highly recommend our managed hosting solution as it’s scalable and optimized for WordPress.  We utilize the latest stable versions of PHP, MySQL and NGINX.
    NGINX increases content and application delivery, improves security, facilitates availability and scalability even for the busiest websites on the Web.

    Features include:

    • Nightly backup
    • Domain email accounts
    • Dual Spam Filter
    • Plesk Control Panel
    • Log File Analysis tools
    • SSL certificate ready – Free installation
