Our Tried & True WordPress Best Practices

  • Top-rated & Highly Reviewed Premium Themes

    We ensure that your WordPress theme uses clean code and provides you with the functionality you want.

  • Custom Child Themes

    We implement child themes into every website so that updates to the theme’s core files don’t affect the customizations that make your website unique.

  • Minimal Use & High Standards for Plugins

    We make sure any plugins we use are top-rated and well-developed, with an established track record of support and regular updates.

  • Intuitive Page Builders

    We use best-in-class what you see is what you get (WYSIWYG) editors. We use WPBakery, Elementor, BeaverBuilder, and Divi Builder, to name a few. These page builders offer back and front-end visual drag-and-drop editing that will make content changes and updates easy. This was a must for our WordPress best practices.

  • Responsive Web Design

    We work diligently to create mobile-friendly WordPress websites that look great on all devices and screen sizes.

  • Dedicated Support

    We won’t disappear once the project is over. We believe the real work begins when the website launches.

  • Support Team

    Using our WordPress experience, we are dedicated to assisting and fostering our client’s success. We focus on training, continuing to grow our knowledge base, and answering your questions as they arise.

  • Proper Coding & Optimized Images

    The code’s syntax is essential. We’ll use minimal amounts of code and overrides. We’ll also ensure that your images are correctly optimized for speed, crisp, clear, and ready for retina displays.

  • Quality Assurance / Quality Control Checks

    Several steps are built into our process that ensures the website build quality.

  • Search Engine Optimization (SEO)

    SEO is integrated into our development process to improve the website’s rankings on search engines.

  • Cloud-based Leading Server Technology

    We use the best when it comes to hosting WordPress websites. We ensure the technology has built-in failover redundancy, the latest stable versions of PHP, load balancing for peaks in traffic, SSL certificates, unlimited bandwidth options, and 99.99% uptimes. This is a nonnegotiable in terms of WordPress best practices.

  • Fully Functioning Development & Staging Sites

    You will benefit from development and staging environments to test your ideas before they go live.

  • Updates WordPress Core Files

    We ensure that your website’s core files are continuously updated and secure. 

  • Extensive Caching

    We use global content distribution networks (CDNs) for faster loading times. We also implement caching plugins to optimize how your content is delivered to the devices used to view the website.

  • Adherence to Security Best Practices

    We regularly monitor the multiple layers of security to ensure your website and customers are safe. We perform regular malware scanning and spam mitigation, continually employing the latest security tools.

  • Data Backup

    We implement redundant daily backups and ad-hoc on-demand backups to ensure you can always restore to the latest stable version of your website. A WordPress best practice no-brainer.
