So much of a successful website depends on the user experience, website design, search engine optimization, content, and more. But none of it matters if the back end of the website is a mess. A well-planned development process provides a solid foundation for everything your customers see and interact with.
Fast-loading sites keep customer interest
Making sure sites run as fast as possible is extremely important. The faster a site loads, the better the customer conversion rate. All current Webfor built sites are made with custom code inside WordPress and other platforms. This means less overhead to make websites work, which in turn means they are generally much faster to load.
This custom code also allows Webfor to create more dynamic websites, have less risk of breaking due to monthly plug-in updates, and are generally more future-proof. Webfor sites are built with the present and the future in mind.
We keep your website up so it can keep working for you
At Webfor, we treat your websites like it was our own. If there’s a problem, we want it fixed just as much as you do. So in addition to custom website development, we also provide monthly hosting, support, and maintenance.
This goes beyond emergency situations, too. Our maintenance plans are designed to head off any potential issues before they become very real problems. Quality assurance is a mainstay of every web design and development project.
Downtime? What’s that?
We make sure sites are always kept up to date and any potential plugin security fixes are implemented as soon as possible to keep sites safe and secure. All sites hosted by Webfor have 24/7 monitoring for malware and uptime so sites rarely have any time at all where they’re offline.
Troubleshooting, Problem-solving, and Scheduled updating
If any plugin updates cause issues, our team is able to replicate those issues on the staging sites away from public view to troubleshoot and repair the problem. Once the issues are resolved, we apply the fix to the live site for a seamless update. As a hosting and maintenance client, you’ll also get advanced spam protection with Akismet, the No. 1-rated spam protection WordPress plugin in the world.
Upgrades that help with functionality
Another big part of our services is our technical advice and support for new features. A website is a living thing that can continue to be expanded upon as much as desired. If you’re looking to upgrade your site, we can build that in with custom plugin development or make recommendations for existing plugins within the WordPress ecosystem.
These recommendations expand beyond just new features to a website. A11Y Advice ensures your website is accessible to everybody and anybody that visits your site. Everybody’s web experience is one of the most important features of any website moving forward. In fact, many states are moving towards accessibility mandates.
Our team provides you with recommendations for improvements to accessibility, as well as implementing those recommended changes. By making your website more inclusive, more customers will be able to take advantage of your products or services.
Making a website look good will go a long way to keeping current customers coming back and potential customers from finding you. But strong web development will make sure you have a site worth coming back to. Not sure if your website will stand the test of time? Fill out our form and get a free site audit.
