A WordPress website development company does not have to build the website features from scratch. They can use plugins to develop, add, or extend the existing functionality.
WordPress developers can use expensive out-of-the-box functionality or build custom features to cover any aspect of website management, be it security, content management, performance, or search engine optimization.
If a customer has problems with the WordPress website, it will take our team a couple of hours to explore its back-end and fix the issue.
As previously mentioned, WordPress is an open-source content management system. Thousands of developers all over the world are constantly working on its updates to expand its functionality.
WordPress has a vibrant community. Its active members provide solutions to many common issues that speed up the WordPress development process for our team.
Custom WordPress web development process
At Backbone, the discovery phase is the first and foremost stage of the custom software development process. Here we grasp the subject idea and specify the main requirements for a future product. A clear benefit of building a website with WordPress lies in fast business idea validation. Customers can quickly decide whether it is okay to carry on or if they need to pivot. To make sure the digital product will meet the market demand, we focus on the pain points this solution will address and its key features. At the end of this stage, we offer customers accurate time and cost estimates.
Our team can easily transfer any unique design idea offered by the customer into WordPress templates. This way, customers get better chances to convey their vision and brand identity. Initially, our design team creates a mockup that is further reviewed, commented on, and finally approved by the customer. As for the layout, we focus on making it clean and simple so customers can stay focused on your offerings. Also, we help customers choose the most suitable color themes and aesthetically appealing fonts to make their business websites more professional.
The custom WordPress development stage implies handling three key elements of WordPress content management system, which are core code, themes, and plugins. Themes are responsible for the look of the website. Based on the budget available, our software developers can either create a custom WordPress theme or modify an existing one so it satisfies the project requirements. Plugins are used to implement additional features. We recommend you avoid installing too many plugins since they can negatively affect the performance of your website.
The WordPress website release means making our website visible for both people looking for your services on the internet and search engines. At this stage, we migrate all data and deploy the website to the hosting platform chosen by the customer and adjust the DNS settings to point name servers properly. Once the final data migration is complete and quality assurance engineers have performed functional, usability, security, and performance tests, the website can go live.
WordPress app development is an ongoing process. Companies need to add new functionality regularly to stay relevant and respond quickly to the customer’s evolving needs. Besides, the websites should be constantly monitored to make sure they are bug-free and available 24/7. That’s when high-quality after-launch maintenance and support services save the day. There are two ways to maintain digital products after their successful launch. The first one implies offering customers a specific amount of hours for a predefined monthly fee. The second option is creating a backlog with tasks taking at least eighty working hours.
