How does WordPress work?
It’s best to think of WordPress in terms of building blocks, rather like Lego. The basic platform – if such an impressive program can be referred to as ‘basic’ – enables people to build websites to suit any need. The plugins allow for greater customisation or security, with many designed to prevent hacking or spam. Others provide services as diverse as payment gateways, display tools for mobile devices, and even sub-games. There’s a fully searchable database packed with plugin information, and the open-source nature of WordPress’s code means experienced programmers can create their own solutions to technical issues.
Unlike proprietary programs from companies like Microsoft, new versions of WordPress aren’t beta tested or released after their bugs have been ironed out. Plugins often stop working as their creators move on or forget about them, with the unannounced introduction of costs another common occurrence. Moreover, the sheer number of added-on programs can create significant risks of software conflicts and websites running slowly or even crashing. While the WordPress community are very proactive when it comes to finding workarounds and solutions to such issues, their comments are often peppered with technical jargon that would bewilder anyone without a computing qualification. As our WordPress web hosting is a fully managed solution, you’ll have the backing of a team of experts who are on hand to make your website run as smoothly as possible: we know our way around WordPress!
There is a great deal to recommend about WordPress as a website hosting platform. Over a thousand design themes can be customised to produce a completely unique site, and with our package you get access to paid themes for no extra cost. WordPress can be installed with 50 different operating languages, including Russian and Welsh, and that thriving online community is always pushing forward the boundaries of what can be accomplished. Even creating multiple websites is easy thanks to the Multisite option that was reintroduced in 2010, following a period as a standalone package. Individual website administrators can be given varying levels of access privileges, while a super-administrator can oversee the entire collection of subsidiary sites.
On the subject of administrators, anyone in charge of a WordPress site on their own will probably have to battle against malicious interference on a semi-regular basis, and here’s where we really come in handy. We’ll provide you with the walkthrough guides to keep your regular housekeeping ticking over, and we’ll also be on hand to help out with any security issues you may have. It’s a full time job monitoring a server, and we’ve got the manpower to ensure your site has a strong and ever-present safety net.
