Silicon Dales are developers who focus solely on building, deploying, maintaining and managing complex and innovative WordPress based projects for businesses across the globe.
We build, develop, maintain and support complex WordPress & WooCommerce websites
From your designs – or instructions (we work with great designers and agencies) – we can build your next WordPress based project from scratch. We’ll make you a custom theme, if necessary, or customize a well-built premium or free WordPress theme to achieve your goals.
From the magazine
You can find our magazine section in the menu. This is a collection of items we have posted for clients and web visitors and is our primary contribution to Open Source: information.
There you will discover Tutorials, How To Guides, as well as articles explaining how to start and continue your journey to developing and managing your own websites.
At present, we’re adding some more long-form content, such as our Guide to GDPR.

“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.
“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.

Maintenance & Support
“We need someone we can trust to look after our WP site.”
When we’ve built your new site, or reviewed an existing one, we’d like to provide ongoing maintenance. This means we perform the vital updates and upgrades on your theme and plugins, using correct quality controls, like version control, testing and staging updates, to pro-actively support your mission critical WordPress based website.
