Should you use WordPress?

There are a couple of considerations that need to be made before you can come to a conclusion about whether or not you should use WordPress. Will WordPress create you the best website that will stand the test of time? No… However, WordPress remains a great option for those who are looking to build their own website or looking to have a novice developer create an affordable website.

If you are in eCommerce, we strongly recommend steering clear of WordPress unless you have a comprehensive understanding of WordPress, this is for a number of reasons with the largest concern being security which becomes important when you begin to manage payment details. Instead, we recommend either headless e-commerce with Shopify as the CMS or simply vanilla Shopify.

If you are planning on creating a static website then we would recommend using newer web technologies for two reasons, today you will stand out from other websites and hence, gain a competitive edge when it comes to metrics that help determine your search engine ranking. Secondly, you will not need to update your website in a few years time to remain competitive.
