Development

“Build me a full WordPress website”

This is the “traditional” project we undertake for clients, probably the most often, though usually, clients come to us when they have some kind of problem (see tabbed section below!) like a slow WP site, or admin pageload time which is in the double digits.

We can manage, from inception, through design, to the build, launch and post-launch phases of your development. Or, we can pick up your project at any one of these stages.

Most often, we build sites which are WordPress with WooCommerce sales areas.

Checkup & Report

“I’d like to know what, if anything, needs doing on our WP site.”

Got a WordPress website? Maybe your developers went away, were bought out, stopped trading? Perhaps you bought a new business which had a WordPress site? Whatever your reasons – and there are lots of them! – maybe you want some WordPress experts to have a look through your site to quickly tell you what the present state is, in order to make a plan to stabilise, optimize, and maintain your site going forwards.

Optimization

“Our website needs to be blazing fast for visitors and admins”

Is your WordPress website slow? Have you got a WooCommerce store with a slow admin area? Do you know that things could and should be faster?

Silicon Dales provide market leading performance optimizations for complex WordPress websites, with a particular expertise in WooCommerce stores (we’re verified WooExpert developers).

Whether you are looking for front end speed and caching implementation, or its the backend (the wp admin) where you’d like to gain performance. Perhaps you are not quite sure if what your host is telling you is true.

Whatever the root cause, we’ve found and fixed the causes of slowness in big WordPress websites. We can make them stable. We can optimize them. We can make your WordPress blazing fast.
