WordPress is arguably the world's most popular open-source blogging/CMS platform.

However, over the years it has become a bit more complicated to set-up the default installation of the site to meet your exact requirements: WordPress has created it own brand of PHP pseudo-code, which can make it difficult for people to adapt to meet their exact requirements.


With hundreds of thousands of installations world-wide Drupal is widely recognised as the a serious contender when it comes to open-source Content Management Systems.

It has tens of thousands of off-the-shelf plug-ins which can quickly add functionality to your website.

Again, though, it uses its own proprietry mark-up which can soon complicate matters when it comes to personalisation/customisation.


Less popular than both WordPress and Drupal, Joomla still packs a punch when it comes to off-the-shelf Content Management Systems.

With a smaller user group, however, comes less free support. It should still be considered when it comes to your CMS requirements, however, as being smaller, it is less of a target for hacking than either Drupal or WordPress.


We have already successfully integrated PayPal with a significant number of our client websites.

PayPal has the advantage of being free to set-up and test, instead charging a percentage on each real-world transaction.

Being free to join and deploy on your site makes PayPal the perfect online payment gateway for new businesses.


WorldPay is owned by the Royal Bank of Scotland and provides the next level of online transaction processing within the UK.

There are various steps to go through before you can start using World Pay services online, but we have guided clients through this process in the past, and would be happy to help you with your e-commerce requirements.
