Here are the top eight reasons why our hosting is better than WordPress:
This is not an open source website platform that allows anyone in the world to write code like plug-ins and patches for your website. All code is written in-house. Number one priority is Security, including Global Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) compliance and SSL.
Our platform provides hearty business and interactive tools that help you engage your customers and attract new visitors. No matter what you need (a booking calendar, shopping cart, affiliate sales program, photo gallery to showcase your clients or your work, or an email marketing tool) we’ve got you covered. And of course there are Customer management tools and tracking tools.
Our hosting is on Amazon Web Services (AWS) Cloud servers that are placed strategically around the globe for safety and to optimize website download speeds. WordPress sites break down quite frequently. Trust us, we’ve inherited more than our fair share of these disasters.
Our developers write code so they have complete control over the code. On our hosting platform, all the code is developed from scratch, in-house. Every function is thoroughly tested and updated. Ongoingly, forever. It’s all done seamlessly for you behind the scenes. And if there ever are any technical issues, there is robust support for resolving problems.
If you want to manage your own website’s content and/or page design, it’s easy to do. All our websites are responsive and mobile ready. The admin interface is easy and intuitive to use.
If you’re a business owner or manager, you know that having a great-looking website is no longer good enough.
WordPress requires additional plug-ins for social media management. We integrate social media management tools with our hosting. You will be able to load content, schedule posts across multiple channels, schedule and load an email blast and even trigger a timely blog on your website. No plug-ins needed. Yes, all the tools that make it easier and faster to stay on top of your marketing.
WordPress was never built as a content-managed system. What added that functionality was the growth of open-source plug-ins for WordPress. (see #3 above) Because the software platform is not developed at the root for content-management, there are often conflicts and issues, and generally you’re on your own to resolve them when they come up. This is especially important if you want to take on the management of your website.
WordPress can be a great for posting a quick blog, but if you want your website to collect data securely or (more importantly) collect leads that can turn into sales, walk away from WordPress now. Is there a CMS plug-in for WordPress? Yes, there’s a plug-in for everything. We would never trust it and we refuse to leave our client’s valuable information vulnerable to being hacked through a plug-in.
Our platform was developed by a world class enterprise content management software team and website designers. Unlike WordPress, all the features in the list below have been hand-coded into the platform.
Your platform features are determined by your level of subscription. It’s easy to upgrade and unlock more features. No need to move or redesign your site to use more features.
