Austin WordPress Design
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 in 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
- Automatic core and plugin updates
- Sucuri Security services.
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.
While we can build out your site on another WordPress friendly hosting provider, we highly recommend our Rackspace cloud hosting 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.
- Nightly backup
- Domain email accounts
- Dual Spam Filter
- Plesk Control Panel
- Log File Analysis
- SSL certificate ready – Free installation
