WordPress Website Design/Development

Ultra-fast, professionally-crafted and meticulously optimised WordPress websites for small business to enterprise.

Why choose WordPress?

WordPress is the most popular website software in the world. It is well-known, well documented and well supported by almost all website development professionals. It’s easy and convenient for both beginners and experts alike to edit a website via the user-friendly dashboard. It’s also super SEO-friendly, providing you with a clean, streamlined and secure website to submit to Google and Bing.

Our 140-Point WordPress Checklist

We strongly believe it is our 140-point website checklist that truly sets our websites apart.

During every build, we put all of our websites through a 140-point checklist that includes an extensive administrative and functionality polishing process (which is completely separate and in addition to the design process).

This list includes such things as installing and configuring security scanning, streamlining DNS records, implementing email logging, dedicated SMTP, firewall protection, user activity logging, image optimisation, hosting/PHP optimisation, market-leading caching, anti-spam software and so much more. The result is an exceptionally smooth, secure and well-optimised website.

Our polishing process is the result of almost 2 decades of combined expertise, ensuring you are given a website where everything has already been preemptively thought about for you, minimising the likelihood that you’ll experience any unexpected issues.

Silvercode WordPress websites are:

You stay in control.

Our websites are built to last, and most importantly, be easily manageable. We exclusively use software that is industry-leading, well known and well supported to ensure that you are never backed into a corner with a website that is difficult or expensive to find support for.

You’ll never find yourself stuck with a website that you cannot easily make changes to, or that isn’t well known to other website developers and digital service providers.

Not only this, but your WordPress website and all associated intellectual property will be 100% owned by you.

Helping you stay in control of your website.

Top-tier WordPress development and hosting experts.

Our professional-grade WordPress websites are built with precision and ultra-fine attention to detail.

Over the years, we have built and managed thousands of websites, developing and optimising our processes along the way to create a service that leaves no stone unturned. If a problem should ever occur, we’ve likely already solved it before, ensuring quick and responsive resolutions.

Your business will be backed by true experts who not only understand website development, but also have a deep understanding of the technology and hardware infrastructure behind it.

Additional Inclusions & Important Information

Using Google Analytics, we will set up any-time access to your live website visitor statistics. You will be able to view a comprehensive break-down covering your real-time and past visitors, including demographic statistics, time spent on your site, which pages are being visited, and so much more.

All Silvercode websites are fitted with best-practice foundational on-page and technical SEO (Search Engine Optimisation) techniques in place.

Using Google Search Console and Bing Webmaster Tools, we will set up your website for indexing on Google and Bing search engines, including the submission of your sitemap.

We also install an industry-leading SEO plugin on all websites, to assist with optimising your text content as well as ensuring your pages appear correctly in organic Google and Bing search results. While no particular organic page rank can ever be guaranteed (by anyone!), your website’s organic rankings for various keywords may improve naturally over time. If you want to take a more aggressive approach with a comprehensive SEO strategy, we offer a dedicated SEO service that can assist.

Our websites are all set up with industry-leading security software, to protect them from a range of online threats including spammers, SQL injection, DDoS and more. With two separate malware scanners active at all times, one on-site and one externally hosted (for redundancy), your website will be a force to be reckoned with.

Your website will also receive a web application firewall that will protect it from brute force strategies. If you host your website with Silvercode, you’ll be protected even more by our hosting fleet’s elite security features.

Among our extensive security strategy, we also protect your website from DNS manipulation strategies, phishing attempts and email spam abuse using the latest technology by Google ReCaptcha.

At no extra charge, we can assist you with obtaining a free Privacy Policy for your website. We can also assist with arranging any other legal documentation you may need for your specific business situation, such as Terms Of Use, Terms & Conditions, Acceptable Use Policies and more.

Our website builds include unlimited revisions/changes (so long as the website size and functionality remains within the original scope of the project) as well as unlimited training until the time it is launched.

If you do not wish to edit or maintain your website yourself after it is built, our support and maintenance services can take the stress off your plate for a simple, flat monthly fee.

Frequently Asked Questions

WordPress offers two different types of website, hosted (.com) or self-hosted (.org). Silvercode builds self-hosted (.org) WordPress websites.

Hosted (.com) WordPress websites are limited in how flexible they are and are better suited to personal blogs and hobby websites. You are very limited in what features you can have, what plugins you can install, and how your website can look.

Self-hosted (.org) WordPress websites on the other hand utilise the same technology as hosted WordPress websites, but without any of the limitations. The software is open-source, and can be installed on almost any website hosting account, with any provider of your choice. You can freely move your website from host to host at your discretion. This method of utilising WordPress gives you ultimate flexibility, control and ownership over your website, and is most suitable for businesses and other profressional-grade purposes.

The short answer is that no reputable developer can guarantee any particular load time for any website before it is completed. Load speeds are determined by a variety of complex factors. What you can do however is have your website optimised (or potentially rebuilt if necessary) by experienced developers, using the absolute best possible practices to ensure it achieves the fastest load speeds that it possibly can.

Yes – if you want to. We offer and support the WooCommerce platform for any eCommerce requests. This platform integrates with WordPress seamlessly and will add a powerful range of shop functions to your dashboard such as inventory management, shipping, tax and order processing.

Both you and your customers will be able to receive email order notifications/receipts from your website.

You will be provided with your own account that you can use to login to your website. Clients who opt for our WordPress Website Maintenance Plan or WordPress Website Support Plan will, by default, be given a login with either ‘Editor’ or ‘Shop Manager’ access permissions (depending whether or not your website has a shop). These access levels will allow you to access and edit all of your media, post and page content (including products and orders for eCommerce websites), should you wish to do so.

At your request, we can increase your account to ‘Administrator’ access. This is suitable for website owners who are confident with website management and wish to do more than just publish/edit posts and pages, or manage their store.

Alternatively, if you are not comfortable logging in to your website at all, and prefer us to make all edits and changes, that’s completely fine too. No access will be provided to the WordPress dashboard, as this will be entirely managed for you.

Yes, very in fact! We use the industry-leading WordPress platform which is incredibly user-friendly. You will have your own dashboard that you may log into to edit your posts and pages if you wish to do so.

You don’t need any prior experience or any coding knowledge to make most content changes. The editor interface looks and feels reasonably similar to a lot of document publishing software – Microsoft Word for example.

This depends on the size and complexity of each individual website, though on average we suggest a 4 week turnaround once the website build has commenced. The true timeline however may range from a couple of weeks to a couple of months or more for very large or complex builds.

Within your proposal, we will provide you with our next available date to begin your website build, as well as a timeline outlining each stage of the project right up until completion.

There’s a few things we will need from you to be able to complete your new website.

Domain Registration Access

We may need access to your domain registration, such as if we need to point it to our web hosting servers. If you do not already have a domain registration, or if you would like to transfer it to Silvercode to keep everything in the same place, please check out our Domain Registration service.

Logo

If you already have a logo, we will require a copy of it in either vector .eps, .ai or .pdf file format. If you are uncertain what format you have, please feel free to send through what you have and we will let you know if there are any issues. If you require your existing logo to be converted to vector, refreshed/re-designed, or if you need a brand new logo to be created for you, please check out our Graphic Design service.

Images

You have three main options when it comes to images for your website:

  • You can supply us with the images you wish to use on your website (you must own or have an appropriate licence to use your chosen images).
  • You can purchase regular or premium Stock Images to use on your website.
  • We can source a limited variety of royalty-free images for you to use at no extra cost.
Copywriting

You have two main options when it comes to the text for your website:

  • You supply us with the text you wish to use on your website.
  • You can purchase our Copywriting/Content Creation service, to have us write your text content for you.
Social Media Access

We may require access to some of your social media accounts to integrate them with your website. We only require this access temporarily, and once integrated, you are free to change your password as you wish.
