WordPress is one of the most popular Content Management Systems in the world. There are an estimated 1.3 billion WordPress websites out in the wild. This is a good thing! With all of those websites, there is a lot of support out there. There are hundreds of thousands of plug-ins both FREE and premium, which means getting new features on your website isn’t as expensive as it might be if you were developing that functionality from scratch. We’re WordPress experts and have been using WordPress as our primary CMS for over 10 years now.
WordPress.org is a Blogging platform that is widely used by bloggers wordwide. WordPress.com is where you can download the open-source wordpress CMS, which is what we use for our websites.
CMS stands for Content Management System. Having a content management system is sensible as it allows you to easily jump in and make minor changes to your website, and add things like blog posts or entries to your portfolio. Without a CMS you would likely need to go to your developer any time you wanted to add or change anything on your website, which could get expensive.
Hosting is where your website is stored. Your website needs to be hosted on a public accessible server in order for users to be able to view it from anywhere in the country/world. Without hosting your website publicly only you would be able to see it.
SSL (Secure Sockets Layer) and its successor, TLS (Transport Layer Security), are protocols for establishing authenticated and encrypted links between individual machines. Having SSL installed on your website gives your url the secure padlock icon on browsers such as Google Chrome. With your website data being encrypted it becomes much more difficult for Hackers to intercept data transferred from a user’s machine to your website database. Having an SSL certificate installed means your website will be accessible from https:// instead of https:// and this is seen as a positive in the eyes of Google and other Search Engines. Google anounced that encrpyted sites would be more likely to rank than those without.
There are hundreds of ways to access a website nowadays. Users use a variety of devices from Desktops, Notebooks, Laptops, Tablets, Phones and more to access your website. All of these devices have difference specifications and screen sizes, which means standard website might look different on all of these devices, or even be unusable without significant user input on small devices such as mobiles and small tablets. Responsive design adjusts your website according to the device it’s being displayed on. This makes it much easier for users to view your website with a good user experience on all of their devices.
With more users than ever using mobile devices to access the web, it’s become more essential that websites load fast. Users want their information immediately and do not like to wait. According to Unbounce a 100ms delay in load time could lead to a 7% reduction in conversions. Although website speed isn’t as important on a brochure website as it might be on an e-commerce website, it’s still essential your website loads as fast as possible so your users get the best possible experience and don’t go looking elsewhere for information. Google also takes pagespeed into account when ranking your website.
