What Is A WordPress Website?
A WordPress Website is something you have probably heard mentioned when people talk about websites, but what is it? In the simplest terms it is a piece of software, which provides an easy way to create and manage a website.
We use WordPress for all of our client websites because it’s fast, flexible and simple to update content.
When it first appeared it was described as a piece of BLOG software – a BLOG is defined as:
“a regularly updated website or web page, typically one run by an individual or small group, that is written in an informal or conversational style.”
WordPress is currently the simplest way to get your website online. If you know how to use a word processor, you can update your own website. Of course you might want to have your website designed to look a certain way for your needs, and this is where we step in.
A Basic Website Is Like A Car Without A Driver
Setting up a basic WordPress website is simple and can be done with a few clicks. Getting your website to look right and work right is more complex and that’s when you need the help of a web designer. You can decide as the customer, the level of control you want over your website it’s design and it’s content.
Should you feel able then we can set your website up so that you can add your own updates. Or just send the content to us and we can optimise your text and images and post to your website for you.
With WordPress you are using a worldwide industry standard which is constantly changing and being updated. As technology changes and updates your website needs to grow and work with those changes.
