It’s been a while that we offer our customers WordPress websites. Knowing what technology works the best, we encourage our clients whose project requirements match the WordPress website to choose WordPress over the other content management systems. We have the skills and knowledge to create a customized website using any existing CMS or even a custom made CMS (as we do sometimes), but WordPress is still our number one option. Wondering how or why we think the WordPress website will be beneficial for our customers? For these reasons:
WordPress is designed and developed with solid codes and security in mind. It is developed over the years and gradually refined and well tuned.
Through the admin panel of WordPress you can create different users and define their role. The administrator is the one who can control the entire site with full access to all features. An editor would be the one who can publish and manage posts of his own and others as well. Author is the writer who can publish and manage his own articles. The contributor is the user who can write his own articles, but cannot publish them, and finally there is a subscriber with the lowest level of access which is managing his own profile. It is the perfect feature if you need to divide responsibilities among your staff.
WordPress has a very plain and friendly user administration panel to work with. You don’t need to know coding or programing to create a page or update an existing one. Everyone with basic computer skills can administrate a WordPress website. You can easily create a page or post an article in your blog.
Using the “Customize” menu, you can change the appearance of your WordPress website by a few clicks. You can change the site title, tagline, header image and background image of your WordPress website by simply clicking on “Appearance” section of your admin panel and choosing the ideal options. You also have full control over the menu.
WordPress is a search engine optimization friendly content management system. It gives you the ability to change Permalink, Title Tag, Header Tag, H1, H2 and other SEO factors. We know from experience and also by the structure of WordPress that pages being created in WordPress get indexed by Google faster than traditional websites. There are also additional plugins that make SEO of WordPress a lot easier. One of those plugins is WordPress SEO by Yoast which we install on every WoerdPress website that we develop.
All our WordPress website themes are responsive. They will readjust to the screen size of the device that the site visitor is using. The best example of WordPress website is our own. Please check www.hdwebtech.com on your mobile, iPad and desktop to see how it will show on different devices.

You can implement the Text Area, Check Box, Select Options and as many other fields as you want. Once your website visitor submits the form, it will be emailed to you in a nice HTML format. The sender also will get automated reply. The submitted forms will be saved in your database and available to you for as long as you keep them. Our “Free Estimate Form” and “Contact” form are created by using this plugin.
