What is WordPress?
WordPress started out several years ago as a blogging platform, but web developers quickly found it was powerful and capable of doing so much more than just social media. The WordPress creators allow for unhindered, creative access to its open source code, providing a means of affordable website maintenance, as well as a plethora of add on enhancements. Our websites start out with a basic layout design, personalized or fully customized and then equipped with tools called ‘plug ins’ that really make the website come to life. Examples of plug ins are slideshow galleries, calendars, e-commerce, event registration, user interface, file management systems, and the list goes on—there are hundreds of options! Gallop Web Services has broad experience with the available tools–we know which ones are desirable and which ones to avoid. If hosted through Gallop Web Services, WordPress is housed securely, giving you the ability to update your website safely from any computer at any location.
WordPress is also inherently optimized for the web and content changes generally post to search engines within hours. This means your site is more likely to land on the first page of Google results, so people are more likely to find you.
