Rapid Web use WordPress to produce high quality, scalable websites that put our clients in control of managing their website content.

Custom website design using bespoke themes


We create custom designed, mobile-friendly WordPress websites that are fit for purpose for your company branding and business goals. The flexibility of a custom design allows us to fit your content around the design whilst keeping any unnecessary customisation and plugin bloat that off-the-shelf themes tend to offer, to a minimum, allowing your website to scale and perform at its best.

Putting you in control of updating your website


We make sure that updating your website is as easy as possible. WordPress is now so much more than the simple blogging platform it once was and updating large complicated websites through the administration area is easy and straight forward. Utilising core WordPress functionality to create custom editable areas, we can make sure that each part of your website is editable for you so that you are in control.

Extending your website


Sometimes you may want to extend your WordPress website beyond it’s initial purpose. This might be the addition of a gallery, members area or shop front. We are experienced in advising and implementing the best possible WordPress plugins to meet your needs. If the correct plugin does not exist for your functionality needs then that is no problem, we can develop a bespoke plugin to suit your solution.

Bespoke plugin development


We are experienced in developing bespoke plugins for clients who need specific functionality for their websites. Even though WordPress has thousands of existing plugins available to download and install, sometimes the exact nature of your requirements means producing a plugin from scratch.

Taking on your existing website


If you already have a WordPress website and would like us to take over the running of it then get in touch and we will audit your current solution. Once we have brought the website over to our hosting then we will make sure the website is fully up to date including all necessary security checks.

Making sure your WordPress website is secure


Being the most popular authoring platform in the world means those websites that use WordPress are an unavoidable target for unscrupulous attacks. We take this problem very seriously. We take a number of steps to ensure your website is as secure as possible by making sure the core and plugins are up to date, administrative accounts have secure usernames and passwords, installing and configuring security solutions such as Wordfence, having access to multiple database back ups and making sure the website is running over https.

Website performance


A WordPress website can sometimes suffer with performance. We ensure that our websites are as quick as possible through well coded, optimised themes, limiting the use of non essential plugins, caching solutions, the use of CDNs to host website resources and of course making sure that your website is hosted on a dedicated server solution – our dedicated hosting solution means that your website is not part of any shared hosting with thousands of other websites.
