WordPress vs. Custom Design?
The most inexpensive way to get a good website up and running is with a content management system such as WordPress. WordPress offers thousands of design templates that can be customized to match your brand. WordPress also offers eCommerce add-ons that are tested and secure, plus many other features desirable in any website including contact forms, newsletter sign-up, and up-to-date blog-style information posts that can be easily maintained.
Custom build websites not using WordPress are possible but are more expensive.

After you get your site set up and start responding to your new customers, you may not have time to do the necessary steps for keeping your web site up to date with fresh content, pricing updates, or special offers. A quick call or email and Eden Computing can take care of those tasks for you.
Under the covers – WordPress web sites should have security patches applied as they come out and WordPress code updates for new features and better security. Regular backups of your site should be made before any major updates are applied. All of these tasks can easily and inexpensively be done by Eden Computing.
