We host and develop WordPress sites!
WordPress is the most popular of the Content Management Systems. WordPress is a commonly used system of programs written in mostly PHP to serve up web pages. It’s what is referred to as a Content Management System. That’s a fancy way of saying that the content in one’s website can be managed. Most importantly, it can be managed by YOU.
As it happens, WordPress is the most popular CMS (Content Management System) software powering websites on the Internet right now – more than a third of them all!
As with everything in life, there are pros and cons when it comes to using WordPress. Here are some – and this list is by no means exhaustive.
Pros of using WordPress
If you are already adept at WordPress – or similar content management systems – and a pretty computer savvy individual – then you will be all set with a WordPress website.
Updates to your WordPress website can be made whenever you choose – all you need is to have access to the Internet and a web browser (like Firefox or Internet Explorer or Chrome or Safari to name a few).
There are no other expensive software packages you need to buy to use WordPress, unless you actually want to develop WordPress themes and plugins and websites yourself.
Cons of using WordPress
You DO have to learn how to use WordPress if you don’t already know how to. We don’t tell people it’s necessarily simple and natural to use, because, in our experience dealing with thousands of people who have helped move in this direction, it isn’t.
Making simple changes here and there can be very easy and efficient. However, making large scale changes – like altering themes and templates – can be a daunting task for the less experienced.
WordPress updating and changes
You have to make the time to make your updates. If you are so busy now (doing your job – which does NOT include web development) that your days fly by, then the odds are that you probably don’t have time to become more focused on learning something new just to upkeep your WordPress website. So we can handle it for you – providing whatever level of help you may need.
Just like with nearly all software, WordPress security updates are a fairly constant occurrence with WordPress and its associated plugins and themes. WordPress is open source software – meaning the software that WordPress is comprised of is essentially free to use – but the ramifications of not keeping up with security updates in a WordPress website is not free to fix.
Worst case scenario using WordPress
Finally, if you blow up your WordPress site because you did not take the time to back everything up prior to making changes to your website, it might cost a great deal to have a website developer recover or rebuild your WordPress site. Note that all WordPress sites hosted on CharlesWorks servers always have backups available that a destroyed WordPress site can be restored from.
We help you shine!
Always remember that your WordPress website will be an online reflection of you and your business. You need to look good in this regard. Regardless of how small or large your business is, obviously if you aren’t on the web, there is no measure of your potentially lost business opportunities.
Dedicated WordPress web hosting services, WordPress website development, domain names for your WordPress site, email services and search engine optimization for your WordPress site essentially sum it all up. Each plays an important part in your online success. CharlesWorks would love the opportunity to explain that in detail. All of that can be accomplished with a WordPress site – or any website CharlesWorks can construct for you for that matter.
We at CharlesWorks currently handle an incredibly diverse set of clients. Take a few minutes to view our portfolio to see but a small sample of the range of styles of websites and services we can provide.
Our goal at CharlesWorks:
At CharlesWorks, we want to see everybody be online with an affordable website that is:
- Easy for visitors to navigate
- Able to be found by the major search engines
- Professional in representing your business
Why deal with CharlesWorks?
When thinking about who you want to deal with concerning your web presence, it’s important to think about whether you can figure out who you will actually interface with at a company. At their website, is it impossible to find a name of who to deal with? That is a signal right there that they do not want to be known.
Look our staff page. We are real people serving real people. We want to help. We don’t hide behind an anonymous web page trying to get you to do business with people who don’t want you to know who they are.
Know that once you choose a WordPress website, you can hire us to help you from start to finish, beginning with domain name registration, thru the hosting, email, and design if necessary.
We are proud that we do most of our business through referrals. That speaks volumes. We take what we jokingly refer to as a novel approach in today’s marketplace: we always try to get back to you. If you call and do have to leave a message, we try to get back to you that same day if possible. We are old fashioned in the sense of believing in providing the highest level of service possible to our web clients.
