Especially lately, Open Web Creations has seen an increase in demand for open source website development solutions. We develop in Joomla, Opencart and of course WordPress. In de past WordPress has been used primarily for blogs, but in view of the many possibilities, the large community and the matured CMS, WordPress is now a great solution for many different types of websites.
The Wordpress procedure
Open Web Creations offers 2 choices for designing your website. The 'Basic Website' is a great choice for many websites. A choice is made from one of the many available templates (a template determines how your website will look like), and it will be tailored to your business needs and business style.
It is also possible to make an individual design for your website. An individual design is a step beyond your website. It's important to look at what your business stands for, what you would like to render with your website or other media. Through various consultations we'll get the right design.
Of course, WordPress in default installation is already complete, but what makes WordPress so special is that there are so many good components and plugins available that make WordPress even more complete. Below we list the most important ones:
- Best WordPress security: iThems Security Pro

WordPress Webshop with WooCommerce
We also see an increase in demand for a WordPress webshop. To create one, we use the WooCommerce plugin. This is a complete webshop extension that is fully customizable. This WordPress plugin is ideal for smaller webshops with less than 1000 products and if you want to easily expand your corporate website with a webshop.
