West Bay Web Recommends

WordPress

We recommend WordPress for most of our clients. WordPress is the engine that drives over 50 million websites worldwide. Odds are you have used a WordPress website. NASA, The Smithsonian, The New York Times, Forbes, General Motors, Ford, Rolling Stone magazine, and even the Rolling Stones all use WordPress. It is proven and reliable.

WordPress is free. It is Open Source software, and WordPress does not charge for using it. The only costs you incur are through third parties (like us) that install and customize it to your own needs.

WordPress is highly customizable. WordPress can be customized to do just about anything. OK, it won’t grab a beer for you, but… WordPress can handle almost anything from a simple blog or a simple business page to elaborate e-commerce websites. Most customizations rely on plug-ins. These are specialized code modules designed for specific purposes. There are thousands of plug-ins available, so your options are pretty vast!

WordPress makes it easy to make basic changes to your website. With WordPress, you don’t have to rely on a programmer, nor do you need to know HTML, CSS, PHP, or any other programming language to update your website content. Another reason why WordPress is so popular!
