Why build your website on WordPress?

Websites built on WordPress are said to make up an incredible 25% of the internet. It is by far the most widely used CMS in the world and with good reason.

With unrivalled flexibility and the power to extend its functionality with over 56 thousand plugins at the touch of a button it is easy to see why it is so popular.

The Good, the Bad and the Ugly

WordPress does get a bad reputation at times for either poor performance or security. The truth though is that WordPress as a system is more than capable of being incredibly fast and secure but where it typically falls down is in the choices made by the developer.

Heavy bloated themes, countless plugins and poor hosting play a huge factor in the performance and security of your site but the good news is that all of these can be easily avoided by choosing a developer that knows the ins and outs of the platform.

WordPress Done Right

Here at New Moon, all of our themes are built Bespoke. We don’t use “off the shelf” themes that come bundled with functionality you will never use. The sites we build are designed with best marketing practices in mind to ensure they help turn your users into customers, and built specifically for your needs to be streamlined, optimised and fast. 

We are partnered with the incredible WPMU Dev giving us access to best in class plugins for both performance and security as well as their industry leading hosting platform. 

This enables us to deliver WordPress websites that fire on all cylinders.
