West Bay Web Recommends

We recommend WordPress for most of our clients. WordPress is the engine that drives over 50 million website 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 themselves all use WordPress. It is proven and reliable.

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

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

WordPress makes it easy to do 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!
