Wordpress seems to be the number one choice for most new websites as a CMS platform, there are thousands of readily available themes ready to customise and load onto your website, this all sounds great right? Well I don't think so and here's why:
1. Wordpress Security Issues
I've had countless emails from potential clients asking me if I can fix their hacked Wordpress website, although there are lots of security fixes available it seems that the standard Wordpress install is vulnerable to attack. If you're a DIY website builder you may lack the experience or skills to put in place the security required and if you're relying on a professional to sort this for you and you'll be none the wiser anyway!
My god I hate themes! A whole industry has been built on the creation of Wordpress themes, I hate the thought of just picking something off the shelf and trying to make it fit your design or business, that's not how design should work, you should not be limited to the features available in a theme, you should have full freedom to design whatever you like and build this from scratch.
Building from scratch sounds more time consuming and expensive, well sometimes it can be however here at Cloud we've developed an amazing CMS system which means we can convert almost any design into a fully functioning website within a few hours!
Most customers that I work with will admit there are not that IT savvy and the find the thought of managing their own website terrifying! Now give someone in such situation a Wordpress dashboard and it's enough to put them off for life! The whole process of managing a website should be much easier surely!
4. Just because..
There are far better solutions out there! Most cheap web design companies tend to favour Wordpress purely because it allows them to quickly dish out templated websites without any need for any real design. We offer the same kind of affordable web design however in a pay monthly website model, the key difference is although our prices are very reasonable all our design is bespoke.
My god Wordpress is so slow!
So you've read this post and realised you're one of the most unfortunate people whose stuck with a Wordpress website, don't panic! You may be asking what's the alternative? Well I will have to be biased and firstly say a bespoke CMS is the best route and what we use. There are lots of other options and to be honest if you do choose Wordpress and it's all setup correctly and managed effectively it can work just fine however the biggest problem is most websites are not managed very well and if it requires constant updates and mainteance to avoid being hacked is it really worth the hassle?
Jack and his team are great! They are always on hand to help with our website and any updates we need adding are always done quickly! I couldn't recommend Cloud Web Solutions enough especially if you're a startup or small business.
Very happy with Cloud Web Solutions. My account manager Jack has always replied to my emails swiftly and dealt with any issues promptly without any fuss. I am also very happy with the design of my website and the easy to use content management system. Would not hesitate to recommend Jack and his co-workers.
Cloud Web Solutions has worked patiently and methodically with us to deliver an optimised website, full of all the features we wanted for those who use it. Nothing was too much trouble for Jack and the team during the build process and their continued support is invaluable. Delighted!
Cloud delivers websites at electrifying speed and without over-complication or jargon. Realistically priced and strong knowledge of all coding issues; also at odds with an industry too often characterised by inflated costs, technical flaws and dreadful service - highly recommended.
I created my business around 6 months ago with very little capital but needed a website to help market. I was actually recommended Cloud Web Solutions and from day 1 I've had the most amazing experience. Not only was my website designed to a high standard, I pay a monthly direct debit that has helped in my first year. I also know after 2 years, I can rebrand and keep my costs. Jack has been fantastic, and would recommend all businesses to use this fantastic service. I will also add, all my queries and requests are always dealt with very quickly and extremely professionally.
I find Cloud Web Solutions very professional and committed to delivering a first rate service to their customers. Jack's attention to detail and understanding of what the client needs together with his patience with the fine tuning process is a refreshing change to my past experience with website developers. I would definitely recommend Cloud Web Solutions for a first class service whatever the size of your business.
Highly recommended!Very good communication and always answered my queries...I recently asked for some improvements for my website and that was done straight away for me without any hesitation and exactly the way I want it!Thank you so much Jack and the team for everything you are doing for me and my business! Keep up the good work!
Cloud Web solutions were fantastic in designing and building our website. They spent a lot of time listening to our needs and the service is exceptional! Thank you
Using Cloud Web Solutions was easy, stress-free and priced extremely competitively. Every step of the process was explained in full and the team were both friendly and informative. 10 out of 10, would wholeheartedly recommend.
Cloud provides a fast accurate and intelligent service both in building sites and maintaining them. It is competitive and effective. It is my first port of call for all my websites and I recommend it all the time to others, so I am glad I have a chance to put something on this site to encourage people to use it.
