The Best CMS Platform for Portsmouth, RI Websites

Your Portsmouth website is powered by a content management system, or CMS. While our top web developers are well-versed in multiple platforms, we prefer to only provide web design services in WordPress.

WordPress is simply the most popular open-source website platform, with more than 40% market share throughout Portsmouth and the greater Rhode Island area.

WordPress is the most popular CMS in Portsmouth, but it's also the best in terms of overall performance and scalability of a custom website design. Although there are dozens of content management systems to choose from, we've found WordPress to be the most scalable for designing websites.

Benefits of WordPress for Your Custom Website Design

  • You can add functionality to your website without custom programming with WordPress plugins.
  • WordPress has a large community of contributors helping to improve the platform's functionality, stability, and security.
  • WordPress has a large following among custom website development agencies and freelance website designers, helping ensure you can find a local Portsmouth web developer to help you.

Custom Design vs Website Template

We are a full-service web design company with a large staff of in-house web developers. Our web design team is separated into two groups, each focusing on either custom or template website design services.

Custom Website Designs for Portsmouth Businesses

As a custom website development agency, we prefer to start every Portsmouth website design service from scratch.

This allows our team to design custom mockups specific to your branding requirements, to show you the look and feel of your future website before web developers start their work. Best of all, those mockups can be revised until you're happy with the design concept and are ready to move forward.

After you approve the custom web design mockup, our web development team will integrate it into a completely custom theme. There are many benefits to a custom theme, including a simplified codebase that often has better page speed and usability since it was developed specifically for your Portsmouth website.

Template-Based Website Designs for Portsmouth Businesses

If the cost of a custom website isn't within the budget of your Portsmouth businesses or organization, we offer template-based websites that can save you money!

Instead of creating design mockups and developing your website in a custom theme, we'll hand-pick several website templates that closely match your desired look and feel. Don't worry though, you'll be able to select your desired template for us to install on your development site. From there, we'll customize the template to match your color scheme and load your content into the template's layout options.

Portsmouth Website Design Pricing

For a web development using a customized website template, our starting price is $3,750 with a 2-3 week turnaround.

For a custom website with design mockups, our starting price is $9,500 with a 8-12 week turnaround.

Questions to Ask Your Portsmouth, RI Web Designer

You should always ask a few questions of your Portsmouth website design firm before starting a project. Let's go over some of the most common questions we get asked before starting a custom web design or website development project:

  • Does the web developer outsource the project? Because we've got our own team of USA web designers, we don't outsource.
  • Will the professional website designers do 301 redirects to help search engines? For any Portsmouth custom web development project that will replace an existing website, we plan out 301 redirects early in the project
  • Does the website designer plan to create a mockup, or provide template samples, before starting the website? We create design mockups for Portsmouth clients who choose a custom website design service, and provide template samples for clients who choose a template-based website development service.
  • Which CMS platform does your Portsmouth web designer plan to use on your website project? Due to its popularity, scalability, and ease-of-use, we love WordPress.
  • How fast can your Portsmouth website design team turn things around? Most of our web development projects are done in two to three months.
  • Does the other custom web design company have a good history delivering creative solutions to clients? As a full-service web development agency, we love complex design requirements! Just let us know what you have in mind and we will be happy to help!
