WordPress is fast becoming the industry standard for website creation. In terms of usage, it has a market share of close to 60% in respect of sites on the web, with active usage being recorded at around 28%. As one of the leading names for WordPress web design Middlesbrough, we always recommend it as the Content Management System (CMS) of choice.
In the light of this, we thought it would be beneficial to look at some of the reasons behind why WordPress is now so widely used. The fact that it is exceptionally user friendly is a key one, but there are many other important factors. It would be very fair to say in this day and age that the security it offers is chief among them.
Internet security is a subject which is seldom away from news stories. We have all seen and heard stories of websites being attacked – indeed some of you may have been unfortunate victims of this in the past.
Whilst no system can 100% guarantee absolute protection from any form of hacking attack, WordPress does have an outstanding record of success in terms of being the most secure system possible. This is due in part to the fact that it is regularly updated as and when any security weaknesses or vulnerabilities are discovered.
Making sure that your website is kept up to date with the latest security updates and plug-ins is the only way in which you can truly benefit from having a WordPress site. Updates are not automatically installed, which means you need to monitor releases and install them manually.
As it’s not always possible for our clients to do this we offer a service which sees us do it for you. With our fees for this starting from as low as £7 per month we provide you with the valuable peace of mind that your site is as safe as it possibly can be and kept up to date.
Our experience of being at the forefront of WordPress web design Middlesbrough leads us to believe that the system will remain the benchmark for website management and security for many years to come. Making use of WordPress enables us to empower our clients to take control of their websites, meaning they are not reliant on often expensive services to keep their site up to date. The system also allows them to make changes themselves anytime they want, whether it is adding new pages, creating blog articles, or even changing the layout.
With clients across the UK – and indeed from all over Europe – we’ve fast become the name known for excellence in web design and development. To see how we can be of service to you please get in touch with the team.
