Intro

Looking for a WordPress developer in Calgary? Look no further. We have been developing and maintaining WordPress websites since 2011. Find out more about WordPress in this article or jump straight to our WordPress support plans.

What is WordPress?

WordPress started off as a blogging platform back in the early 2000s. Since then, it has grown to power not only blogs, but 38% of all websites on the internet. WordPress is a content management system (CMS) which offers various capabilities like blogging and e-commerce.

Check out this great WordPress intro video from Yoast to find out more:

There are two ways to start your WordPress project. Download and install WordPress (from wordpress.org) locally or on a host server, or create an account on wordpress.com and purchase a hosted WordPress website. 

This technology is very powerful and flexible. It can be used as a web development platform or as a simple blog. A word of caution: developing websites can get complicated and overwhelming. Hire a Calgary WordPress developer if you need support.

Why WordPress?

WordPress is a robust and flexible platform. It has quite a few advantages over traditional HTML (Bootstrap) websites. Some of the most common advantages are:

  1. Clients can add and maintain their own content.
  2. Blogging platform is closely integrated with the rest of the website.
  3. Thousands of plugins available to extend the functionality of the website. No need to hire an app development company.
  4. No coding / programming required to develop and maintain a WordPress website.

Common WordPress Developer Calgary Questions - FAQs

  • What is the difference between a WordPress and regular HTML (Bootstrap) website?

    This is a great question and we get asked this one a lot. WordPress is a content management system (CMS) that comes with blogging capabilities (out of the box). HTML websites usually don’t have blogging capabilities but are responsive and offer other benefits. We previously wrote about  the major differences between the two platforms.

  • Why do I need to keep my WordPress version and plugins up to date?

    The main reason you want to keep your WordPress website up to date is due to security and performance. A website that is not up to date is more susceptible to getting hacked. Also, some components and functionality of the website may fail.

  • What is post update testing and validation?

    Anyone can click on the “update plugin” WordPress buttons. But what happens when something breaks or doesn’t work properly with the rest of the website? We will make sure that your updates are tested and any issues are resolved.

  • What is a website security check?

    We will scan your website for any threats/attacks and check your spam settings. We will mitigate any threats that your site might be facing.

  • What is 24x7 website monitoring?

    The last thing you want to do is check your website every minute to make sure it's accessible. Or worse, find out from your clients that your website is down. Using our tools we will make sure that your website is up and working and jump on resolving any outages before you even notice. Additional charges may apply for troubleshooting and problem resolution.

  • What are secure cloud backups?

    Backups provided by your host may or may not be sufficient. We will ensure that your website is backed up daily (in the google cloud) so that it can be restored if something goes wrong.

  • What is website caching support?

    Website caching improves the speed and performance of your website. It’s a must for WordPress websites! We will setup and configure your caching plugin to make sure that your website is performing and responding quickly.

  • What is a Content Delivery Network (CDN)?

    A content delivery network (CDN) is a way to serve your website based on your users geographical location using a distributed server infrastructure. If you would like to find out more about CDN check out Cloudflare’s CDN page. We will setup your CDN and make sure that its working properly. This will also provide an extra layer of security protection for your website.

  • What does e-commerce support include?

    We have a lot of experience supporting WooCommerce websites. WooCommerce is a complex system and making sure that it’s working well with your other plugins and functionality is critical. We will make sure that your WooCommerce implementation is playing well with the rest of your website after updates.

  • What is email website support?

    We will ensure that we respond to all website support inquiries within 24 hours.

  • What is the weekly performance report?

    Website performance is really important. Most visitors will leave your website if they have to wait longer than 3 seconds for the website to load on their mobile device. We will make sure that your website is loading quickly and monitor this performance on a weekly basis. Contact us to see an example of a website performance report.

  • Why should you do updates in a non-production environment?

    We will ensure that our updates are done in a non-production environment and are properly tested before applying them on your live site. In case there are any issues, updates will not impact your live website and can be resolved more efficiently. This limits rework and ensures that updates don’t impact your users and customers.

  • What is included in the WordPress support hours?

    You can use WordPress support hours to resolve any performance or website issues. Troubleshooting and resolving issues is typically not covered by the standard maintenance plan.

  • What is included in the WordPress developer hours?

    You can use WordPress development hours to add new features, functionality, or content to your website. These hours can be used for tasks not covered by the standard maintenance plan. 

  • What are these premium WordPress plugins that are included in the WordPress maintenance plans?

    Duplicator Pro - robust backup and restore plugin

    Perfmatters - premium WordPress performance plugin to improve the speed of your website

    Formidable - powerful WordPress forms plugin

    Elementor Pro - pro version of the most popular visual WordPress website designer
