For some time the Wordpress (WP) site technologies has been around for a number of years now and the years in the fast-paced IM world makes some technologies archaic, no doubt.
Few days ago, I was asked by a colleague; which is the better format to design/publish website, in HTML or the Wordpress?
Now some initial considerations for the Wordpress came to the mind:
- Wordpressing is very suitable for the bloggings, that is well given.
- Wordpress are also very suitable for some very beautiful websites
- But, the WP require more maintenance in terms of a wide array of feature plug-ins for tweaks etc. - can be quite involved.
- Security ring-fencing plug-ins is also must for Wordpressing nowadays due to cyber attacks
- As I understand, Wordpress site is better hosted with a specialist hosting compared to normal HTML sites using the good old and ever reliable cPanels
So in respect of above;
- What Specialist/dedicated Hosting Provider would respected warriors recommend for a Wordpress site?
- What *essential things* must be in place for a new live showcase or basic business Wordpress site nowadays?
- Are the Wordpressed Sites more faster loading compared to HTML sites?
- What about cross-browser compatibility (mobile & desktop) issues these days for Wordpress?
Your respected help and advice warriors is sought on the above, thank you.
