What is WordPress?
WordPress is a content management system (CMS). It is software designed with the purpose of organising and delivering information (words, images, videos) online. WordPress is a popular platform for website design, and can be customised to deliver a wide range of functionality useful for presenting branded businesses online.
WordPress.org vs WordPress.com
WordPress comes in two different varieties: WordPress.org & WordPress.com. Although they have the same purpose, they work differently. If you’re considering a WordPress website, it’s important to know which one you’re talking about. Here’s a quick breakdown of the main differences:
WordPress.com is a hosted solution – it comes packaged together with hosting. WordPress.org is a self-hosted solution, meaning that website hosting needs to be acquired in order for the website to work. There are implications for both approaches.
Configuration & Customisation
WordPress.org requires more technical skill to set up, but is more customisable than WordPress.com. The balance between ease-of-use and functional possibilities is an important consideration in the platform-vetting stage of website design projects.
WordPress.org is open-source software and is supported by an international community of developers and advocates via forums and information channels that are generally free to access. WordPress.com’s platform can not be accessed and customised in the same way as WordPress.org.
Clear as Mud?
Choosing the best platform for your business isn’t always an easy choice. A range of important considerations need to be taken into account. We help our clients resolve this issue, determining the best platform for their brand, marketing & functional requirements. If you need help, please contact our team.
WordPress.org (which we generally use to deliver our branded websites) is made up of 3 components: website files, website content, and a database. Website hosting is used to host the files and provide the database, and content is added to the website during the development process and subsequently through the life of the website, as required.
We make the process easy for our clients by assisting with all aspects of WordPress website development. We design & develop websites (also working on brand if needed) and then provide hosting, website management services, SEO & content services to support the presence of the business online.
WordPress Website Benefits
WordPress is a popular CMS (Content Management System) that powers over 35% of the world’s websites (cminds.com). It offers features which make it great for a lot of the work we do where websites need to look great, present across multiple devices, and also have a strong online presence. Other WordPress benefits include robustness, support, flexibility, scalability and security. WordPress may or may not be the best solution for your project – the only way to find out is to talk to our team. As part of our free consultation process, we help you appraise and select the best platform to suit the needs of your business, now and into the future.
WordPress Website Design & Development
A website is an important cog in the wheel of business organisation, presentation & functionality. WordPress is frequently the platform we use to deliver our website solutions – it’s great to work with, completely customisable, and works particularly well for the general website requirement of brand & information presentation. We also provide a range of integrated services to complement website design, so if you need help with the other essentials (brand / logo design, domain names, email configuration, social media setup, hosting, web management, etc) we are here to help.
WordPress Website Training
We facilitate local (Sunshine Coast QLD) & remote (Australia-wide / International) WordPress training, which is a great asset for organisations taking on content-management in-house. We’re experienced in working with a wide variety of WordPress configurations, and in addition to training can implement workflows for common tasks. Additionally, we provide support for businesses and organisations with WordPress, and provide an outsourced solution for WordPress support, content management, and business marketing.
