INSTALLATION – By accessing the cPanel, a client may upload WordPress to their domain, create a MySQL database using the MySQL Database Wizard, and then complete the WordPress Install… or upon your request, it can be installed for you. This is a service that will hopefully be automated in the near future.
THE GENESIS FRAMEWORK – WordPress sites can be vulnerable to those who want to take your site down or exploit it for malicious reasons. Having your site hacked is an expensive, time-consuming hassle — and it can really damage your reputation. Genesis offers state-of-the-art airtight security. The majority of our sites are built on the Genesis Framework, but you are welcome to use something different.
THEMES – There are tons of themes available and if you have trouble finding one, we can help. In particular, we like the Genesis child themes that have been developed by Web Savvy Marketing and if we create a site for you in WordPress, we look through these themes first. They are designed for specific industries, but we have also found that they are easily convertible for use in a variety of ways. Each theme will include everything that you need, however, to make your site look exactly like the demo, it may require additional purchases.
PLUG-INS – There are thousands of WordPress plug-ins out there and many of them are free. The problem with free is making sure that they are kept up-to-date so they don’t cause your site to lock up when WordPress is upgraded to a newer version. There are also very good lite-versions available. Premier plug-ins can be expensive and have a one-time cost or an annual license fee. For the sites that we build, all of the required plugins are included.
SITE CREATION BY GREEN PIGS – There are decisions that you will need to make about your website. If you prefer to build it yourself, you will need to purchase your own copy of Genesis, and a license for your theme (unless it’s a free or lite-version theme). Sometimes it’s just easier and less expensive to let us build it for you. Please take a look at the available packages below.
