WordPress is more than a content management system, it’s an ecosystem. Third party developers and service providers are steadily cranking out themes and plugins. However, when it comes to an installation, WordPress’s simplicity belies its complexity. The fact that things are very easy to install, does not mean installations are trouble free.
We provide technicial management, diagnostics, defense, backup and monitoring for WordPress sites. WordPress updates are issued several times a year – often for security reasons. Upgrading a simple site is very simple, but upgrading a site with lots of plugins and complex themes can expose compatibility issues.
We research and test WordPress security plugins and other ways to improve security. We analyze common malware to learn its goals and methods. Most malware are "web and mail traffic thieves", but others are probes, trying to break into the database or web host. Some hacks know how to hide from bots and users and are difficult (for the plugins) to detect. Our proprietary scanning tool finds malware that most plungins miss.
There are many factors that can slow a WordPress site down and the cause is not always obvious. Is it the web host, the content, a memory-hogging plugin or something else? Whatever it is, we provide techncial analysis and performance optimizations for high-traffic sites that may be using third party ad services and CDNs.
A good professional WordPress site takes about 2.5 seconds to load. Many sites take twice as long, or longer. Our proprietary themes load in about 1.5 seconds, and it doesn’t do it by sacrificing images. The benefits include users spending more time on your site and better search engine placement.
We provide one-stop custom theme & plugin development, as well as third party theme modification & repair.
We convert traditional sites to WordPress, as well as migrate sites from other content management systems or host-to-host. We also integrate backend and frontend systems and operations.
