The websites we build have a Content Management System (CMS). There is much written about content management systems on the web already so if you are interested in delving into the topic we recommend looking up either WordPress or Drupal. They are the most prevalent content publishing systems out there and the ones we build on top of.
Even websites that remain relatively static benefit from a content management system such as WordPress or Drupal. For example, managing the large amount of SEO information a site requires (such as meta data or sitemaps) can be cumbersome on static HTML pages. With a good CMS you can quickly install an extension to automate this type of routine tasks.
Managing your analytics means configuring custom reports, granting access to third parties, and accessing the data. When you hire a third party to run an advertising campaign for you, you’ll want them to see the analytics so they can improve their campaigns while they run. You will also want them to configure their conversion metrics and goals so that you can get a quick birds-eye-view of the campaigns effectiveness.
We always setup Google Analytics (GA) to start tracking the day your site is ready to launch so that every single click is measured. You are added as the owner and administrator so you can control who can access and use your analytics.
Analytics about your visitors will tell you what pages are popular, how long people spend on those pages, and who referred visitors to your site. All kinds of data is anonymously collected from your visitors. You can identify the ratio of desktop to mobile users, what geographical area your visitors are from, and you can even identify behavioral patterns like the tendency to always return to the homepage using the back-button rather than clicking the next page. Using analytics is vital to the success of a website.
Domain names, hosting, and physical control over your website
Note, if you manage your own hosting, this information does not apply. Consult your hosting company for information about your control panel.
Access your web hosting control Plesk panel at any time. From time to time you might need access the source code of your website, your databases, or you might want to install something that you can’t do from within the CMS. It’s your website so you have full access to it to do as you please. The control panel includes backup and transfer settings as well as options to fine tune your web server. Check it out at https://choice.hosting.
Create scheduled backups, send a copy of your entire website to DropBox, or grant access to a third party developer. Our hosting is fast and optimized for Drupal and WordPress so developers are happy to see how fast the interface is.
We know managing passwords can be troublesome. All your accounts are tied to a single email login (single-sign-on). All your website features can be turned on and off inside your Plesk control panel.
Don’t worry, were only a call away if you ever need us.
