#1 | Ease of Use + Flexibility of WordPress
One of the things we love about WordPress is how great it is work with. There’s no doubt about it, WordPress is user-friendly and offers plenty of flexibility. A few examples include:
- Drag and drop visual builder modules
- Ability to easily add new pages, images, + content

- And much more…
#2 | Complete Control + Customisation
Another reason why we recommend WordPress Web Design over other web design products is because WordPress offers complete control and customisation.
Here’s some common scenarios we often hear from new clients:
“We Have No Control / Access” | a new client that comes to us with an old websites, built using complex technology generally means that the client has been completely dependent on their web designer this whole time. While many Web-Sta clients do opt for us to manage this on their behalf, we also believe in giving you access so that you can make any changes, any time without it costing you each and every time.
“My Website Is Not Customisable” | when someone has tried to build a website themselves using a DIY platform or their site is really old…it’s often templated and very rigid in it’s design. They’re now stuck as this old platform doesn’t allows for the right customisation or integrations required as their business grows.
“Why Can’t I Move My Website?” | most cheaper, DIY website platforms and hosting providers offer cheap options because you cannot move them. Your website is not transferable which means you’re locked in. If you ever wish to leave your website provider, you cannot simply move your website. It’s been built using proprietary software that only that provider offers. We’ve seen countless business owners need to start from scratch, which is incredibly inconvenient. WordPress is 100% transferable between most different hosting providers.
WordPress web design is a friendly web design platform that has allowed us to teach many of our clients how to make simple changes and edits without needing to involve us. We even have our Web-Sta TechHUB with modules on WordPress for this very reason. The client has complete control and ownership of their site.
#3 | Website Updates + Ongoing Edits
One of the many cool things about WordPress from a client and a web design perspective, is the ability for the site to grow with you.
Quite often our clients start with a basic website, adding additional pages and features such as a blog page, portfolio and shopping cart as their business grows and matures. We can even add more complex features such as online bookings and automation.
#4 | Reliable + Secure
WordPress web design is renowned for its reliability and security (when set-up right). Our fully managed website hosting has been created to ensure every website we manage is running at optimal performance, all while be comprehensive security monitored and backed-up.
#5 | Built For SEO

When designed and optimised using key words, WordPress web design offers more tools and flexibility allowing your website to be discovered through Google searches for easily.
