WordPress is a powerful platform used for millions of blogs, business websites and community portals around the world. At Thameside Media we have trialled lots of content management systems and concluded that WordPress is the best CMS for many types of small to medium sized businesses, including e-commerce. It is fast to build on, and our clients generally find it easy to use with our guidance.
We build custom themes for WordPress, and manage high-quality hosting for it on fast servers.
WordPress is trusted by TechCrunch, Reuters, Sony Playstation, ExpressJet Airlines, Boston University, The Rolling Stones, The Spectator and millions of other organisations. Also see this showcase of hundreds of diverse business sites on WordPress, including some by Thameside Media.
WordPress has a good record for security so long as its core and plugins are kept up to date and (as for any site) the access and passwords are kept locked down. We use a premium WordPress hosting service called WPEngine, which will keep your WordPress installation as secure as possible. In the unlikely event of a hack, your site will be reinstated free of charge by WPEngine.
