Craft CMS website builds Bournemouth, Dorset
What is Craft CMS?
Craft CMS is a content management system that is gaining a lot of popularity right now and rightly so. It allows web developers to create well optimised, secure, and highly customisable websites with an intuitive admin console for business owners to update their content.
Is Craft CMS better than WordPress?
This is a question I get asked a lot but it is a little bit of an apples and oranges debate in my opinion. The reasons you would use Craft CMS over WordPress are to have a very fast website, without the bloat of themes and plugins. It also gives you much better peace of mind in terms of security, with less 3rd-party code and reliable regular updates. In my opinion, if you are building a website from custom designs then it is a much better option than WordPress.
Can you use Craft CMS for eCommerce?
Yes, one-time payments and subscriptions come as standard in the Craft CMS package but some more in-depth features require a more expensive licence. My personal feelings on Craft CMS for eCommerce is that there are better solutions out there, Shopify being one of them. But for instances where you need a rapid payment system on a lightweight frame, it can be a good option.
How much do you charge for Craft CMS website builds?
Craft CMS is a much more bespoke route than a lot of other CMS options on the market, so it is really not possible for me to give any kind of price without seeing the project and what the requirements are. I would certainly say that if you are trying to work to a very tight budget then Craft CMS might not be the right choice for you.
