Hello everyone.

Thanks for the great replies regarding my website. Let me be specific as to what my expectations are.

I prefer a site built in code, not a blog site like Wordpress. I have found that security is not as good with WP and easy to hack. I work hard as a photographer and my images are important as well as has value.

Currently my site is a mess. If it would be any help I can post some photographers sites that I really like, but I don't want to be boxed into one type of work. I do commercial and real estate as well as freelance and art.

Here is my... (more)

3 yrs, 40 wordpress sites. The one that got hacked was because I was stupid. A massive percentage of the time, that's the case when an intrusion occurs. Someone did something stupid.

The excess vulnerability comes from plugins that can also have exploits. However most intrusions occur because the default username wasn't changed, a bad password and no honeypot or captcha. To get the wide variety of features the massive plugin library has out of a developer... college education. Maybe half of the second kid's.

One advantage you most certainly should have: speed.... (more)

Hi Vincent

I do not own or work at a Webdesign agency, but as an Internet "geek" since the late nineties, I have built hundreds of sites for me, family, friends, employers etc... and wanted to tell you that I have converted to WordPress in 2010 without a hitch, never went back to fully coding a website (I sometimes code inside WordPress - when needed)

Security all depends on how good your hosting provider is and how you (the person doing it for you) secure it, there are many proven security plugins on the market that do an excellent job. There is no 100%... (more)

Hi Vincent, lots of good reading here, bottom line comes down to what others say about each person / company - they have gone thru the process and have had good or a bad experience, said that pricing depending on the build will vary, like building a kitchen, use cheap materials and nothing custom then it won't cost a lot, customize everything then yes the price does go up. If your still looking then let me throw us into your hat , / been custom developing for over 18+ years, I know a long time, seen allot of changes in that time.

Here's an additional thought. Make sure the designer you pick is a quality copywriter, not just a marketing company. It will make a HUGE difference in the conversion ratio of your sight!!!
