WordPress has revolutionized Santa Claus website building and management with its content management system (CMS) capabilities. It has made website management so easy, EVEN SANTA CLAUS CAN DO IT!
This platform has grown from a simple blogging tool to a powerful website builder that now powers over 40% of all websites on the internet. Here are some of the Santa Claus websites we have developed. Its open-source nature allows developers to create numerous plugins and themes, making it simple for users to build and customize their websites.
Here are some reasons why we love using WordPress for Santa Claus websites:
Intuitive and User-friendly
WordPress is well-known for its user-friendly interface that makes it accessible even for those with no prior experience in website building. The platform comes with a visual editor that makes it easy to create and edit pages and posts, and there’s no need to know how to code. The dashboard is also straightforward and simple to manage. We’ve even seen clients pick up on how to make changes without any instruction from us or online tutorials.
WordPress can be designed and built to meet any specific needs. While each website we create is custom-designed, there are thousands of pre-designed themes to choose from, so you can easily change the appearance of your website. The myth that all WordPress websites look the same is not true, and you can see the wide variety of unique designs on our portfolio and WP Showoff, a web design gallery site.
Plugins provide additional features and can help you get the exact functionality you need for your project. You can use plugins to add features like social media sharing, contact forms, and e-commerce functionality to your website. Additionally, WordPress being open-source means developers can create their own plugins, allowing for even more customization options.
Search Engine Optimization (SEO) is essential for any website to increase visibility in search engines like Google. WordPress is SEO-friendly out-of-the-box, but with plugins like Yoast SEO, your website can be optimized for your target keywords. Since WordPress was originally a blogging platform, it has everything you need for a successful Santa Claus marketing campaign, where content is still king.
Our WordPress-specialized web hosting, custom web design, and building methods ensure that every Santa Claus website we create is incredibly fast, which is crucial for SEO.
Another advantage of WordPress is its low cost. The platform is open-source and free to use, and you only need to pay for hosting, a domain name, and sometimes a small number of premium plugins if you need unique functionality. This makes it a great option for those who are just starting out and don’t have a large budget to invest in a website. We have options in various project price ranges to help you utilize WordPress as effectively as possible for your next website design project.
Website security is a significant concern for any website owner, and WordPress takes it seriously. The myth that WordPress is not secure is not true, and the platform is continually updated to fix any security vulnerabilities. With proper hosting, maintenance, and secure passwords, we can ensure that all security concerns are addressed.
WordPress is e-commerce friendly, making it an excellent choice for those who want to build an online store. WooCommerce, the most popular WordPress plugin, powers over 30% of all e-commerce websites online – three times more than the next leading e-commerce platform, Shopify. Regardless of the type of e-commerce store, we can build it using WordPress and WooCommerce.
.org vs .com, .org WordPress is self-hosted, meaning there are no limits placed on what you can do with the platform.
.com is a controlled platform run by the WordPress company. It’s not free, and as a controlled platform, there are limits on what you can do on it.
We have created a unique platform for Santa sites using WordPress.org .
The Worldwide Santa Claus Network website development process & platform has been refined over a number of years to include the best of everything we’ve learned about having an effective website for professional Santa Claus portrayal artists. We would not have the full freedom to create as we want if we had used WordPress.com as the website platform.
We love using WordPress as it is a great content management system.
Santa Claus Website Hosting
A2 Hosting, follow these directions:
- Go to https://www.a2hosting.com?aid=5e3f2fa731953&bid=000a6faf
- At the top, point at Hosting and select select “web hosting”
- Choose your package – we recommend the DRIVE hosting package, 3 year – click “get DRIVE”
- Select “register a new domain” to purchase from A2 (see tips above), click “check availability”, then click “continue”
- You’ll go to the order summary page.
- Select 36 months, for the best pricing
- You do NOT need a Premium SSL certificate
- We recommend NOT choosing “Get 20X Faster Page Loads” for only $1 more a month. This is because when that class of hosting renews in 3 years, the price is significantly higher per month. The extra page load speed is not really significant for most Santa sites.
- Select the server location nearest to you.
- You do NOT need a dedicated IP.
- You do NOT want the website builder option.
- No application needs to be auto-installed.
- Click continue, then enter payment information, and you’re good to go.
