What We Do

WordPress Installation & Configuration

Installing and setting up WordPress is not as simple as clicking a button. Plus before you install it you need to buy a domain name and a web hosting package. Then you need to install not only an SSL certificate but also your preferred theme and a handful of essential plugins. You also need to setup up your admin user name and password and customize the admin area and your theme settings. Let us take care of all of that for you.

Custom WordPress Theme Development

This site was built with our custom theme and we can build a custom theme for your business. Or we can customize your current theme by creating a child theme and editing the template files. All of our themes and websites are responsive. This site is fast and clean because it does not contain all the “fluff” that generic themes contain. Don’t use a theme that your competitors use – let us build a custom theme that is best for you!

Website Performance

Website performance involves reducing page load time, optimizing images and databases, and ensuring site “health” through various methods. To get an idea of how your site performs, run your domain through the site GTmetrix. If the score is low, we can help you fix the problems such as adding expiry headers, using server-side caching, eliminate render-blocking sources, and more. Poor website performance will hurt your rankings in the search engines.

We can protect your site by adding code to important WordPress files and securing the wp-content and wp-includes folders. We will disable XML-RPC, WordPress file editing, access to WordPress core, script execution, and directory browsing. We will also limit login attacks and block SQL injections with a database prefix change and by using the plugin WordFence. Wordfence is great for disabling XML-RPC and stopping brute force attacks via their firewall.

Search Engine Optimization

Search Engine Optimization is an advanced topic and we are not experts. There are websites whose business is geared towards getting your site to rank high in the search engine results pages (SERPs). This is not a service we provide but we do have free PDF files that will help a beginner navigate the SEO waters.

Custom Website Logo

If you have a design for a logo but don’t know how to create it yourself, then let us do it for you. And if you do not have a design then we’ll create various logos for you. The cost is $50 per final design.
