WordPress is a great CMS platform and I have managed and designed plenty of WordPress sites in my day. Over the years, I learned quite a bit. The one major lesson that I learned is that it is better to host a WordPress site on a WordPress owned server. Now it does cost a bit more then hosting it on a private server, but the chances of being hacked becomes a lot less. Once a WordPress site gets hacked it can be very difficult and costly to fix. Last time I checked it was around a $100 per year to have a WordPress site hosted on wordpress.com and it can be between $250 to $1000 to fix a hacked site. Do the math and decide. WordPress is awesome, but it may not be the right fit for your business. There is a great pros and cons of WordPress post located in the Tips & Updates at allshousedesigns.com that you should check out. It should help you decide. If you have more questions about WordPress. Please feel free to post them in the comment section.
Sometimes it can be difficult to decide where to list your business on the internet. Yelp.com is one of the largest review sites for business. Through the years I have heard a bunch of mixed reviews about Yelp. The cool thing about Yelp is that it is still free to have a profile that features your business and a ton of people still use the platform. Yelp does provide a paid service to put your business in front of more of it’s users, but it’s a little old school. Basically the contracts and commitments are hard to swallow when you have so many other choices that are more controllable and cheaper. It’s sad to see they still can’t see the disadvantages of their contracts. Anyway before you put your business on Yelp read the Pros and Cons on my Tips and Update section on Allshouse Designs.
