Small business owners want to get great quality at a great price in order to maximize their budget. This is the most popular of our website design packages because it allows business owners to retain control while also managing their site in house without sacrificing security or peace of mind.
A main goal as a business owner should be owning your digital business assets and your website is the most important one. If you don’t control each of the items below then you don’t really own your website.
WordPress is the most popular open-source software used online so there is no shortage of qualified people that can work in it. There is no more reliable platform. WordPress will be actively grown and supported long into the future and comes with a tremendous and accessible built-in talent pool for future development.
For hosting we recommend GoDaddy or WPEngine because they are both WordPress optimized hosting. Your budget and expected traffic load should inform this decision. GoDaddy’s WordPress hosting offers inexpensive managed services with a tiered pricing structure based on traffic volume. WPEngine is a more advanced WordPress Management Platform and requires more skill and knowledge to maintain.
Both hosting providers’ packages have built in security features such as nightly backups, firewalls, sFTP access, and scheduled Malware scans. Cost for this service is based on traffic and typically ranges between $25-$100 per month.
The bottom-line is we strive to lead clients down a path that allows them to retain complete and centralized control of their web project using best-in-class solutions and receiving premium design and superior results.
