Depending on how complex and large your project is, we will advise you on how your website should be developed and why.
Most smaller projects, like a website for a local business, are built on WordPress. We use WordPress here because it lowers the cost of development and has a huge support base. Almost 20% of website on the web today run on WordPress which creates a large market for 3rd party add-ons called plugins. These plugins provide functionality that would otherwise cost thousands of dollars to create, which is what keeps the cost of developing on WordPress so reasonable.
For websites that will be handling a lot of traffic (50k+ visits/mo) or will have an app connected to them, we recommend custom website development. Projects of this nature will be coded from the ground up using the latest available languages and technology. Our custom developed sites are built to scale easily as you grow and also play nice with hybrid and native applications.
