The world of websites is constantly evolving. Flash, which was once considered to be state-of-the-art is now frowned upon as outdated. Not only do many popular devices such as iPhones and iPads not support it, it is also prone to threats from malware and viruses. Most web experts agree that though Flash sites are often visually appealing, the negatives far outweigh the positives.
Along comes WordPress®. Originally developed for bloggers, WordPress® has become a fully functioning platform for websites. It excels in what many web experts say makes for a good website. Simple, clean, device independent, responsive (site adjusts automatically for desktops, laptops, iPads, tablets, smart phones) and fully compatible with how popular search engines populate results (SEO) and mobile friendly. WordPress sites are also very portable, meaning that they they can easily be moved to most hosting services. Companies like Squarespace and Wix use proprietary website builders that produce sites that cannot be hosted elsewhere and in Wix’s case, are even more problematic in that they are not responsive sites. With the varying degrees of screen sizes out there from smart phones to 27″ Retina display iMacs, building a non-responsive website just doesn’t make sense any more.
We don’t like to lock our clients into any specific hosting service (though we do have a great working relationship with Fatcow and recommend them), so we will only build websites utilizing WordPress, Adobe Dreamweaver or Adobe Muse which pretty much only use standard open source code which means they are universally acceptable.
So, if you are in need of a clean (less is often more rule), responsive and effective website, contact us for a free consultation. We’re looking forward to hearing from you.
