Burnham & Highbridge Town Council - WordPress Website Design Agency in Somerset

WordPress is at the heart of every website we build, but why?

If you are worried about being tied in to one website company and their own in-house CMS system, WordPress is your answer.

At Design Hive, we prefer to give you flexibility so that you can move your website at any time without the need for costly rebuilds or painful migration procedures, but we would of course prefer you to stay! WordPress is a highly popular platform, with over 75 million websites now using WordPress.

Have you considered how easy your site will be to manage?

Not every business will have the resources and time to make regular updates to their website. If you do however, you will be delighted to hear that WordPress is a powerful content management system. This gives you the ability to log in and make updates, change text or photos and do things such as adding events or products to your ecommerce shop.

Before you select a company to build your website, you should ask to have a look at the back end of a website. This is a question many customers forget to ask, but it is an important one. Most WordPress websites sit on a theme or template. They all look different in the back end and can be quite challenging to understand. If you ask a website company to build you a website and find later that you are not getting on with the back end, this could leave you frustrated.

We thrive on the opportunity to build you a website that is completely unique and built for your sole purpose, therefore our passion comes from building websites from scratch, without the use of templates.
