This could be due to repeated hacks, malware or viruses, vulnerabilities in the website code that your developers can’t find, or you might just be sick of WordPress and want to change content management systems.
There is no need to start from scratch and completely rebuild your website, there are two options available. Both options keep the front end look of the website the same as it currently is, all we are doing is getting rid of the problematic WordPress CMS:
Convert WordPress to a static HTML /HTML5 site with no content management system.
Convert WordPress to a static HTML / HTML5 site, with a custom developed content management system.
The Custom Content Management System is completely customisable, we can work together to decide how much content on the site you want to be able edit yourself.
WordPress is one of the most popular content management systems available today, used by approximately 20% of all websites on the internet. WordPress websites if maintained properly by the right development team, with the right security in place are for the most part robust and reliable.
However, in some cases you may keep having issues with your WordPress website, this could be due to repeated hacks, continuously getting infected by code injections and malware, or you keep cleaning the websites from viruses and malware and the website issues come back after a week or two.
There are a number of reasons why this could be happening, poor website maintenance or insufficient security are typically the primary cause, however, sometimes it’s actually not WordPress’ fault. Your website can become vulnerable to attack if plugins used on your website are not properly supported or maintained by the original plugin developer, hackers may have identified a vulnerability in the plugin code and as soon as the website is fixed, if the issue with that plugin has not been resolved, the vulnerability is still there and the hackers will exploit the hole.
This is one of the reasons why selecting free plugins that are unsupported is a risk when using them on WordPress websites, as the developers aren’t fixing security loopholes leaving your website vulnerable.
By converting your website over to pure HTML / HTML5 and getting rid of WordPress, this will eliminate most if not all WordPress related vulnerabilities, as the standard exploits aren’t going to exist anymore as the code has been completely changed, therefore automated bot attacks aren’t going to work anymore, leaving your website more secure.
If you choose to get the custom content management built, you will have the ability to edit content on the website, including adding and changing text on your existing pages and many more features, so if you are fed up with your current WordPress website, then you should consider converting your website to HTML, you will be able to keep your existing design and front end, and essentially rebuild the website at a fraction of the cost compared to starting from scratch with a brand new design.
