Why WordPress Might Not Be the Answer

Why Not WordPress

Hey, we're not here to judge. WordPress is a great system when used correctly for your website. It allows you as a user a lot of control over the look and feel of the site and gives you the ability to edit the both the content and that look and feel regularly.

So why would we recommend NOT using WordPress? Well, there are a couple reasons. The first and most important is website security. WordPress is one of the top, if not THE top, content management system for websites today. It's free and open-source which means it's attractive to a lot of business owners and web developers. But because of this it's also attractive to hackers. Because the code is open-source, meaning you an go download it and install all the code on your website by yourself, it also means hackers have full access to that code. There are hackers that spend most of their time hacking the latest WordPress releases. Why? Because once you've hacked it, you can use that hack on every single WordPress website. That is MILLIONS of websites become instantly vulnerable.

We're not just trying to scare you here either. We have actual clients that have come to us over the last several years BECAUSE their WordPress websites have been hacked. Now you can help prevent that hacking by installing various plug-ins and monitors and making sure you're diligent about installing the latest code releases and bug fixes. Wait, I thought WordPress was easy... Nope, it's not. Many people find that they have to hire on a developer not only to monitor the website and do all these code updates, but also simple website content updates.

What's that? Yep, the other reason why we don't recommend WordPress is because the things that make it great as far as content and design editing are also the things that make it really hard to use for a non-developer. Need to update your store hours? Imagine watching a 15 minute tutorial on how to update that page because you haven't edited it in 9 months. And you don't have to take our word for it. Get yourself some hosting space, and install that code, pick your theme and install that. Make sure you get the latest release installed and add your security plug-ins.

Or you can call us and we'll do all of that for you. And we'll go you one better, we can make that website look and function EXACTLY how you want.
