Technology

Having built dozens of websites using the languages “html” and “php”, GI Ltd now develop exclusively using WordPress technology. It is estimated that around one third of all sites in the world use WordPress.

The main advantages of using WordPress are:

  • It cleverly separates the content of the site from the appearance. This allows the developer to change the “look and feel” quickly at a late stage of development or even once the site is live.
  • It is a “Content Management System”, which means that the owner of the live site can update the content (text, images etc.) easily without relying on (or paying) the developer to do so.
  • “Themes” (configurable “look and feel” designs) and “Plugins” (complex services which would otherwise take a lot of time and money to develop) are available in huge numbers, many of them completely free of charge. This makes sophisticated websites highly affordable.
  • Most themes automatically generate a version of your website appropriate for computer, tablet or smartphone. The website will detect what kind of device is in use and apply the appropriate design.

We don’t just build your website, we will obtain a suitable domain (i.e. website address) and supply reliable hosting* at a price few can match.

* your website needs to be located on a computer connected permanently to the internet.
