Which Type of Site is Right For You?
Depending on the type of website you want to build, will determine the type of technology you should use.
- Do you want to update it regularly?
- Do you want to have the option to update the content yourself?
- Are you selling products or services online?
If you have answered any of these with “Yes” then you should consider a Content Management System that allows you to add and edit content as you need.
For online shops, you have a few options available including Shopify, WordPress with Woo Commerce Plugin or a Custom Solution.
WordPress is the most popular frameworks available today. This is for good reason too, the plugins available for WordPress extend its functionality, and provide a seamless environment to build just about any type of website.
From Online shops, web listings, online payments, or just a beautiful design, WordPress can do what you need it to.
WordPress can be slow, so when we build in WordPress Cache is very important and will impact your load time.
WordPress has redundant code, this means when you build a website with WordPress it will load code behind the scenes to make it work, and in many cases this code is “heavy” and caters for every option that may or may not use. So to get around this, it is critical to optimize the site and ensure its performing the best it can.
