What is WordPress?
WordPress is a web-based publishing tool that is designed to make it easy for you to upload new content to your website and manage your existing content. UsingWordpress will mean that you can update information on your website without having to worry about the HTML code or pay a developer to do it for you. This means that even non-technical users can remain in control of their websites and do not need to rely on their web designers.
We use WordPress as our standard CMS for client’s websites, as we believe it is the best CMS on the market. WordPress has an intuitive and user-friendly dashboard (a little like Microsoft Word) making it easy for users to add, edit and delete content as and when they wish to. Our web developers will show you how to use it, so you can take control of your content with confidence.
WordPress makes up over 22% of all new websites and has a huge worldwide community. It is here to stay meaning your website won’t become redundant in the future. WordPress offers regular updates for features and security which enables you to grow your website with your business.
Can you work on my existing website?

How long will it take you to build my website?
The length of time it takes to build your website will depend on the complexity of the design and development, Typically projects take between 4 and 16 weeks. We create a detailed specification of your website project and use agile project management to ensure the project is delivered on time, within budget and to the specification.
Our project manager will be working closely with you from start to finish and will keep you informed at every stage.
Do I have to update my own website?
We will provide you with training on how to use WordPress so you can update your content as and when you wish too, however if you would rather outsource this to us, that’s absolutely fine! We can provide you with a bespoke maintenance plan to suit your business requirements and budget.
We also have a team of professional copywriters who can update your blog with engaging posts and keep your website content fresh. We could share posts too, with both your company and Reynolds Digital creating some content each month. Many clients for example like to create news teasers and stories internally.

Will my website look the same to all users?
We encourage all of our clients to invest in responsive web designs in order to provide users with a consistent experience across all platforms. Responsive web design is not only considered best practice by our team of web designers, but also search engines like Google. Your website will automatically resize to the viewer’s device, whether that is a desktop computer, a tablet or a mobile.
We use ‘Bootstrap 3′ as a framework for responsive development which is now the industry standard ensuring your website is coded to the latest standards.

All websites come with a 3 month no fee fix for issues that are discovered. We have a thorough testing and bug tracking phase at the end of the project to minimise the possibilities of technical issues once the website is launched.
How do I purchase a domain name?
