WordPress is a popular platform for building websites.
Its popularity could, in part, be attributed to its extensibility. That is, how far you can extend the platform to fit your specific needs and goals.
Apart from its extensibility, the fact that WordPress is a Content Management System (CMS), allowing non-technical people to easily maintain and edit website text and images, makes it a popular choice for those looking to get online in a relatively fast, cheap, and easy way.
However, sometimes you don’t need all the power that WordPress provides. Sometimes, too much of a good thing can be bad.
If you checked out our post on WordPress Security, you might have learned that WordPress, while quite powerful, is also a big target for hackers and those with the intention to cause trouble; also because of all the power it provides and all its different moving parts, WordPress can tend to feel slower and sluggish to users.
At Peak, we recognize the strengths of WordPress but take a slightly different approach to how to best leverage the CMS platform in some cases. This approach combines the power and benefits of WordPress such as its content management infrastructure and ease of use with a lightweight, more performant vehicle.
In fact, this very website you’re reading right now is using this approach. I hope you find it fast to use 😉
Through this approach, we can deliver powerful, secure, and performant websites that piggyback on the strengths of WordPress without all the downsides of having a WordPress website.
