WordPress

WordPress is not the world’s most popular Content Management System (CMS) without reason. It not only enables efficient creation and configuration of websites, but it also combines this with a level of user-friendliness that allows anyone without programming knowledge to easily make changes. Thus, you do not need to commission a web designer for every minor modification to your website.

Why We Utilize WordPress

WordPress is an “Open Source” application and therefore available at no cost. This has contributed to the platform’s immense popularity, which confers several advantages upon both you and us.

It is highly user-friendly, both for web designers and individuals without programming expertise, thereby enabling the completion of a brand new website within a very short timeframe. Furthermore, the extensive user base continuously develops new templates and extensions, referred to as “themes” and “plugins,” which further reduce time and costs. Consequently, as web designers, we are not always required to program design elements and functions from scratch, as there are often reputable pre-programmed solutions available. This holds true even for sophisticated functions, the development of which would typically entail significant costs for you.

Even complex websites, such as those for e-commerce, blogs, forums, and social networking sites, as well as multilingual websites, can be realized utilizing WordPress. Due to its immense popularity, WordPress is regularly updated, expanded, and enhanced, thereby ensuring its continued support for many years to come. Additionally, the user base provides a safeguard. Many web designers utilize lesser-known CMS applications with which only a limited number of web designers in Germany are familiar, making it difficult to engage an alternative web designer if necessary. Conversely, with WordPress, one is not dependent on any single individual, as there are individuals in every city who possess experience with WordPress. For these reasons, WordPress is future-proof and thus a technology in which it is prudent to invest.

Naturally, there are also disadvantages associated with the creation of a website utilizing WordPress. Due to the CMS’s widespread popularity, it is more frequently targeted by malicious actors. The user-friendliness and diverse range of functions can also contribute to increased server load and slower loading speeds. At Spektrum E, we have developed solutions to mitigate these issues, rendering our websites faster and more secure than standard websites created with WordPress.

In summation, WordPress is a future-proof, user-friendly platform that saves time, money, and resources for both the web designer and the client.

Web Design and Development with WordPress

Our expertise lies in WordPress development. We remain abreast of the latest advancements and continually evolve our skills and capabilities. Upon request, we also develop new themes and plugins for bespoke solutions, adhering to WordPress best practices.

To enhance the efficiency of our work, we have developed a system that enables us to create pre-configured WordPress websites in a very short time, which additionally benefit from faster performance, increased security, improved search engine optimization, and reduced development effort. We automatically implement the new GDPR requirements for websites in every project. This allows us to offer our customers better WordPress websites at the best prices in Siegen and the surrounding area.

Furthermore, we utilize the e-commerce extension for WordPress known as “WooCommerce“. This complimentary program facilitates the seamless integration of an online shop directly into a WordPress website.

Not All WordPress Websites Are Created Equal

In our professional opinion, WordPress is the most suitable product for the majority of websites, yet it also possesses vulnerabilities. Therefore, it is imperative to engage experienced WordPress experts who can mitigate these weaknesses. Due to its widespread utilization on numerous websites, WordPress is a frequent target for malicious actors. For this reason, we implement supplementary security measures on all websites under our purview, including but not limited to a server-side firewall, targeted hardening of known vulnerabilities, and daily scans.

An additional drawback is that WordPress, in comparison to HTML websites, results in increased server utilization. Therefore, we operate differently from the majority of web designers who utilize WordPress. We refrain from employing cumbersome website builders (such as Divi or Beaver Builder), which contribute to slower loading times. Instead, we meticulously program our websites, tailoring them to the specific needs of the client. Prior to deployment, we execute a series of supplementary optimizations that expedite the loading speed of your WordPress site. We also collaborate with reputable tools renowned for their stringent security standards and streamlined programming (e.g., Genesis).

Therefore, we can confidently assert that our websites are significantly superior to a standard website created with WordPress.
