Websites Made In The UK
aprompt are proud to say that all website development is coded inhouse at our website design studio in Chippenham Wiltshire UK and not outsourced. This means there are no long delays in getting your website completed and it will work well, be up to date and robust - exactly as websites should be.
Open Source Website Software
Luckily for you we do not and never will use open source website software for our CMS websites or eCommerce websites.
OS means Open Source and this type of code is 'openly available for everyone' and is therefore freely available on the internet. But be aware - templates have many disadvantages for the website owner. Free software is free for a number of reasons you can probably work out yourself and therefore will cost you lots more after it's built - not just in cost of the website but in potentially lost revenue, your time and reputation.
It's like getting your business cards done by a vending machine using flimsy card with [insert company name here] - you just wouldn't do that would you? Your business is unique and worth much more so give your business a fighting chance with a professional website using custom code - you'll be glad you did!
Custom Built UK Websites
If you rely on your website to get you business, get it custom built - it's worth it, honestly.
Website templates are available all over the world including Wix, Wordpress, Joomla, Drupal, Magento, etc. and have their place. They are sufficient for personal websites and hobby sites which is fine and we wish them well. But presenting your business on the internet using a template website should be a big No. That's one of the reasons why aprompt chooses not to use them.
