What is WordPress web development

Wordpress Web Agency | Reech

WordPress is an open-source content management system (CMS) that enables users to create high-quality websites for free. However, to build and maintain your WordPress website, you need a WordPress web design agency to fully build and develop your website. Although the platform is widely used for blogging and online publishing, many businesses utilise WordPress for their commercial business website.

Some of the biggest companies in the world incorporate WordPress web design, such as Sony, Microsoft, and The Walt Disney Company. These Fortune 500 businesses are among 835 million other websites that have been developed using WordPress. But why is the platform so popular among all its users? And why should you have your website fully developed by an experienced web design agency?

To get the most out of your website, you need to find the right team of web developers to help you. WordPress web design agencies have in-depth knowledge of the platform and (if they’re like us!) will build completely bespoke websites that meet your business objectives. There are three types of WordPress developers that you’ll need to create a fully operational website.

  • Core Developer: Your website needs to be operational if you want people to successfully navigate and use your site. This is where the WordPress core developers come in. They write code to improve the website’s functionality.
  • Theme Developers: A consistent theme is key to a successful website. Theme developers can create a specialised theme for your site that reflects your brand and KPIs.
  • Plugin Developers: Custom features help a website stand out from its competitors. Bespoke WordPress development means you’ll be provided with custom plugins that add extra functionality to support your sales and marketing strategies.

As a WordPress web design agency, we do all the above at Reech. Our websites are 100% designed and built bespoke, developed in WordPress for a future-proofed online presence.

Benefits to WordPress web development

There are plenty of advantages for using a WordPress web design agency to develop your website.

A complete service

One of the main benefits is that your website will be a more professional and complete end product. When you contract web developers, this comprehensive knowledge will transpire in your finished website, with more consistent themes, faster processing times and improved search engine optimisation (SEO) results.

Security is key

When designing a website, one of your priorities should be making it as secure as possible. With WordPress, there are a wide variety of available services which can be used to keep your new website protected and safe, including:

  • Two factor authentication
  • Limited log-in attempts
  • Malware scanning
  • Firewalls
  • Intrusion detection
  • Audit logs

No matter the size of your business or the type of website you want, WordPress is very flexible when it comes to scaling. Having developed from its sole use as a platform for blog creation, WordPress now has an infinite selection of features and tools, which a web design agency can use to build a website that suits your business.


Keeping on top of your website when it has so many security features and plugins may seem like a daunting task. However, with WordPress, it isn’t as hard as you think. The platform offers an ‘auto-update’ option, helping your website to run on the latest version of WordPress. This means that the site that your web design agency has developed will stand the test of time if you keep regularly updating it. As part of our services, we provide Website Care, ensuring your website is regularly updated and secure to eliminate any downtime.


Your website isn’t always going to have the exact same needs over time. By developing your website via WordPress, you’ll be able to adapt your site easily, accommodating for any changes that may arise in the future.
