Drupal & WordPress

Secure, Adaptable, Dependable

Drupal and WordPress Websites Allow You To Edit Your Own Site

When building a website, it is important to choose a platform to that fits the purpose. When we first started in the business, we built websites using HTML - a simple language which is still used today. We then started implementing CSS in order to provide more SEO friendly websites which were faster. However, these websites required the webmaster to go into the HTML code and make code changes in order to update the website. It was clear this was not the future! We then graduated to CMS (content management system) platforms. We developed our expertise in Drupal and then in WordPress. These are today's dominate CMS platforms.

Our Websites Are Great For Medium-size Corporations, Small Businesses and Non-Profits

Drupal

Drupal is a powerful, developer-friendly tool for building complex sites. Like most powerful tools, it requires some expertise and experience to operate. A Drupal website requires the greatest technical expertise to build. However, it also offers the greatest flexibility, security and options such as an internal, secure intranet for your organization.

Drupal websites are typically built for larger small businesses and small corporations that require an intranet or special web applications specific to that particular business. People who build these websites are more technical people like programmers or engineers. However, the end-user experience is smooth and intuitive - making it a great choice for non-technical webmasters.

WordPress

WordPress began as a blogging platform. It has been adapted to become a website platform. It is easier for less-technical people to build. The ease of build comes with limitations in terms of website functionality. However, if the purpose of your website is to just showcase your business, WordPress is a great way to do this.

WordPress websites are typically for smaller businesses and startups without additional special web applications or an intranet. People who build these websites are normally non-technical people who perhaps cut their teeth in graphics design rather than programming.

  • Time Magazine (time.com)
