Simplicity

Simplicity makes it possible for you to get online and get publishing, quickly. Nothing should get in the way of you getting your website up and your content out there. WordPress is built to make that happen.

Z

Flexibility

With WordPress, you can create any type of website you want: a personal blog or website, a photoblog, a business website, a professional portfolio, a government website, a magazine or news website, an online community, even a network of websites. You can make your website beautiful with themes, and extend it with plugins. You can even build your very own application.

Z

Publish with Ease

If you’ve ever created a document, you’re already a whizz at creating content with WordPress. You can create Posts and Pages, format them easily, insert media, and with the click of a button your content is live and on the web.

Z

Publishing Tools

WordPress makes it easy for you to manage your content. Create drafts, schedule publication, and look at your post revisions. Make your content public or private, and secure posts and pages with a password.

Z

User Management

Not everyone requires the same access to your website. Administrators manage the site, editors work with content, authors and contributors write that content, and subscribers have a profile that they can manage. This lets you have a variety of contributors to your website, and let others simply be part of your community.

Z

Media Management

They say a picture says a thousand words, which is why it’s important for you to be able to quickly and easily upload images and media to WordPress. Drag and drop your media into the uploader to add it to your website. Add alt text, captions, and titles, and insert images and galleries into your content. We’ve even added a few image editing tools you can have fun with.

Z

Standards Compliance

Every piece of WordPress generated code is in full compliance with the standards set by the W3C. This means that your website will work in today’s browser, while maintaining forward compatibility with the next generation of browser. Your website is a beautiful thing, now and in the future.

Z

Easy Theme System

WordPress comes bundled with two default themes, but if they aren’t for you there’s a theme directory with thousands of themes for you to create a beautiful website. None of those to your taste? Upload your own theme with the click of a button. It only takes a few seconds for you to give your website a complete makeover.

Z

Extensibility

WordPress comes packed full of features for every user, for every other feature there’s a plugin directory with thousands of plugins. Add complex galleries, social networking, forums, social media widgets, spam protection, calendars, fine-tune controls for search engine optimisation, and forms.

Z

Built-in comments

Your blog is your home, and comments provide a space for your friends and followers to engage with your content. WordPress’s comment tools give you everything you need to be a forum for discussion and to moderate that discussion.

Z

Search Engine Optimised

WordPress is optimized for search engines right out of the box. For more fine-grained SEO control, there are plenty of SEO plugins to take care of that for you.

Z

Multilingual

WordPress is available in more than 70 languages. If you or the person you’re building the website for would prefer to use WordPress in a language other than English, that’s easy to do.

Z

Ease of Installation

WordPress has always been easy to install and upgrade. If you’re happy using an FTP program, you can create a database, upload WordPress using FTP, and run the installer. Not familiar with FTP? Plenty of web hosts offer one-click WordPress installers that let you install WordPress with, well, just one click!

Z

Importers

Using blog or website software that you aren’t happy with? Running your blog on a hosted service that’s about to shut down? WordPress comes with importers for blogger, LiveJournal, Movable Type, TypePad, Tumblr, and WordPress. If you’re ready to make the move, we’ve made it easy for you.

Z

Own your data

Hosted services come and go. If you’ve ever used a service that disappeared, you know how traumatic that can be. If you’ve ever seen adverts appear on your website, you’ve probably been pretty annoyed. Using WordPress means no one has access to your content. Own your data, all of it — your website, your content, your data.

Z

Freedom

WordPress is licensed under the GPL which was created to protect your freedoms. You are free to use WordPress in any way you choose: install it, use it, modify it, distribute it. Software freedom is the foundation that WordPress is built on.

Z

Community

As the most popular open source CMS on the web, WordPress has a vibrant and supportive community. Ask a question on the support forums and get help from a volunteer, attend a WordCamp or Meetup to learn more about WordPress, read blogs posts and tutorials about WordPress. Community is at the heart of WordPress, making it what it is today.

Z

Custom Content

WordPress comes with default content types, but for more flexibility you can add a few lines of code to create your own custom post types, taxonomies, and metadata. Take WordPress in whatever direction you wish.

Google likes responsive web sites.

More people view websites these days on mobile devices rather than desktop PCs. Your website therefore needs to perform well on all screen sizes because your clients are all different. This is referred to as ‘responsive’ web design.

Responsive Web Design (RWD)

Creating flexible, not fixed, layouts that work on mobile, desktop, or any other device.

Small, medium and large

One web site for every screen size. Phone, tablet and desktop.

Mobiles are everywhere

More people are using smaller-screen devices to view web pages than desktop users.

Why not traditional?

Tiny text, meaning you have to zoom. Horizontal scrolling. Distorted images. Difficult to use and navigate.

Google loves mobile

Google prefers responsive websites and they perform better in rankings/results. Non-responsive websites can suffer.

Kung Foo explanation

“Empty your mind, be formless, shapeless — like water. Now you put water in a cup, it becomes the cup; You put water into a bottle it becomes the bottle; You put it in a teapot it becomes the teapot. Now water can flow or it can crash. Be water, my friend.”

– Bruce Lee

Is it more expensive?

It’s a standard service which every web designer should provide these days. So, no, it isn’t. Not with us.

Thanks again for your help; exceptional, given that it is Saturday evening.

Thanks for all your help the past few days. I’m off for a beer. I’ll have one for you too 🙂

…your direct, and clearly competent, approach impressed me…

Your website is in danger

At the time that we check and release a website, it is running on the most current version of its software and is properly protected from being hacked.

However, it's perhaps been some time since then. Unfortunately, websites are extremely vulnerable to cyber criminals looking for software vulnerabilities to take control of the websites and use them for their own purposes.

Even well known and renowned websites are among their victims.  In November 2015 the British newspaper "The Independent" fell victim to a hacker, who undetected for several weeks, infected computers of the website's visitors with a dangerous virus.

Monitor

24/7
  • Hackers are getting clever. Getting access to a vulnerable website is just a first step for them. Then, they use the website to infect unprotected computers of people who visit it. Imagine the consequences when it’s revealed that it was your website that had spread malware to others. Regular website updates are the easiest way to shield yourself from that risk.
  • Constant monitoring week by week. If our system finds something that needs updating, it'll get on with it. If there's a potential vulnerability, it'll tell us.

Backup

Daily
  • You don’t have a backup unless you know you can use it for website restoration. Restoring every website copy and checking it’s integrity is boring and takes ages. And we want you to be able to concentrate on more important tasks.
  • That’s why we perform a chain of actions which include copying, remote restoration, integrity testing and storing backup at a chosen storage location. And that’s it.

Reduce your risk

Even the greatest can be hacked and sadly, the risk of that happening can never be completely eliminated.

However, it is certainly possible to protect yourself from most home-grown, amateur hackers using well-known vulnerabilities to mass-hack websites.

Website administration - a new product we offer – increases security of your websites and enables a rapid response in the event of a hacking attempt.

What we do

We make sure that your website is constantly monitored for availability and security, and its software, add-ons, components and plugins are updated to the latest versions.

This is quite simply best practice for reducing or eliminating known vulnerabilities exploited by hackers. Periodic backup copies are made so that they can always be used to restore the site if needed.
