“What ‘technical’ things need to be considered when building a website?”
The most important technical considerations are the optimisation, hosting, security and ongoing updates to your website. Ignoring these usually results in not being found by search engines, slow website performance, malware & hacking attacks and your website breaking due to outdated software.
To find out how we can help improve your website
Optmising your website pages properly results in search engines finding and indexing it easily. When done right your SEO efforts will improve the page rank of your site and help it move up in search results. Creating uniquely valuable pages for specific target audiences that are likely to earn shares naturally while using critical elements like page titles, headlines and the content itself is the best form of website optimisation there is.
We host our clients’ websites on WordPress specific cloud servers. Because they are specifically made for WordPress and don’t share resources with hundreds of other websites.
Our motto is the old adage of “better safe than sorry”. Proactive website security prevents hacking attempts or malware to take hold in the first place. Fixing a security problem after it becomes a problem is always more difficult than preventing it in the first place.
WordPress releases incremental updates at least once a month with full version updates once a year. All themes and plugins follow suite and need to be updated too. Failure to do this results in gaps in your security. We make sure that your website and all of it’s extensions are up to date all the time.
