WordPress is an open-source platform which means that thousands of developers around the world are continually creating, testing, and refining updates and plugins. At last count, there were more than 50,000 plugins available for use. Because of that, what started as a simple, free blogging platform has evolved into a full-fledged website design and management system that we can use to build your website exactly the way you want it.
Very few websites remain static, meaning the content never changes. Businesses evolve and you want your website to change to reflect that evolution. With a WordPress website, you don’t have to come back to Atiba for support to make changes or post to a blog. When we hand off the website, we’ll walk you through the simple steps for making changes. Also, when those plugins have updates available, you can usually do that with one click of a button. There is no programming knowledge required.
While WordPress was developed for ease and user-friendliness, it was definitely made with security in mind. The internet is a crazy place and attacks can happen when you least expect them. WordPress not only has taken plenty of active measures to improve security, but they offer plenty of resources to help ensure that you are following the most secure steps.
With WordPress being the most popular CMS in the world, there is a large community of users and developers. That allows both us and you to tap into the power of the people, so to speak. Those who make WordPress plugins respond quickly, there are always new tips and tricks, and it helps to have great support as well.
WordPress makes adding any type of media to your website simple. The days of needing help to post anything but text are gone. Now WordPress can easily handle audio, images, and video content. Want to embed a video you just posted to YouTube or Vimeo? It’s as simple as pasting in the web address URL, and WordPress does the rest.
