Frequently asked questions

Why do you specialise in WordPress?

There are over 800 CMS platforms available so rather than being a jack of all trades, we have chosen to hone our expertise on the most established platform that has over 10x the market share of its closest competitor. In addition to its unquestionable future role in the market, WordPress continues to innovate; pushing the boundaries of the editing experience that we utilise with our modern WordPress development approach.

Furthermore, unlike many more ‘modern’ CMS platforms, WordPress is open source so you wont be locked into a pricing plan that could change at any point, or be limited to grow at the pace of a more closed system. Thanks to the large community of developers and contributors, there are a wealth of solutions built for WordPress allowing core functionality to be extended in a myriad of different ways.

I’ve heard WordPress is slow, is that the case with your websites?

It’s true that if you took an average performance reading of all WordPress websites, speed scores would be low. But this is due to the sheer ubiquitous of WordPress and the ease that third party plugins and themes can be added which often don’t meet performance best practices.

We have built our WordPress framework from the ground up with performance and other best practices in mind. Our base theme achieves 100% mobile and desktop speed scores, passing all Core Web Vitals so as WordPress experts, we can ensure that any website we build is fully optimised, with fast loading times and great performance.

How secure is a WordPress website with Hallam?

You’ll often hear about security vulnerabilities in the WordPress ecosystem, but these will always relate to third party plugins, themes or outdated versions of WordPress. Being the most popular CMS, WordPress is also the most targeted, but it’s core is secure. We also use the latest version of WordPress and will regularly update the small amount of trusted plugins we use on your site to maximise security protection. So, with the right security and best practice measures in place, a WordPress website can be one of the most secure websites.
