Experience the full benefits of WordPress CMS
WordPress is undeniably one of the most popular and widely used Content Management Systems (CMS) in the world today. Its user-friendly interface, extensive customization options, and vast plugin library have made it the go-to choice for individuals and businesses alike looking to establish an online presence. However, there is a subset of “developers” who view WordPress solely as a cash cow, using third-party plugins to hastily piece together a solution that fails to truly address the needs of the client or their intended audience. At IronGlove, we take a different approach. We see WordPress as a powerful hybrid software application delivery framework, capable of delivering truly tailored and robust solutions through custom programming with minimal reliance on plugins.
By treating WordPress as a hybrid software application delivery framework rather than a mere CMS, we are able to harness its full potential and offer our clients unparalleled results. We understand that every business is unique, with its own set of requirements and objectives. This is why we believe in taking a customized approach to WordPress development, where we carefully craft every aspect of the website or application to perfectly align with the client’s vision and goals. This approach not only ensures that the end product is a true reflection of the client’s brand and values but also provides a seamless user experience that engages and captivates the target audience.
In the realm of WordPress development, there is often a misconception that relying heavily on plugins is the most efficient and cost-effective way to create a functional website or application. While plugins can certainly add functionality and save time, they can also introduce unnecessary bloat, security vulnerabilities, and compatibility issues. At IronGlove, we prioritize quality over convenience. Our development team possesses an in-depth understanding of WordPress’s underlying architecture, allowing us to create custom solutions that are lightweight, secure, and optimized for performance. By minimizing the use of plugins, we can ensure that the end product is not only efficient but also easily maintainable and scalable as the client’s needs evolve.
The results of our custom programming approach to WordPress development speak for themselves. Our clients have consistently reported higher user engagement, increased conversions, and improved overall satisfaction with their websites or applications. By tailoring every aspect of the development process to the client’s specific requirements, we are able to create an intuitive user experience driving meaningful interactions and achieves tangible business outcomes. Furthermore, our custom solutions are designed with scalability in mind, allowing our clients to easily expand their online presence as their businesses grow and evolve.
At IronGlove, we believe that WordPress is much more than just a CMS. It is a versatile and powerful platform that, when utilized to its full potential through custom programming, can deliver transformative results for businesses of all sizes and industries. Our team is committed to aligning with WordPress development trends and best practices, ensuring that our clients receive the highest quality solutions that are both future-proof and aligned with industry standards. Whether you are looking to establish an online presence, optimize your existing WordPress website, or looking to develop a complex web application, IronGlove is here to help you unlock the true potential of WordPress and achieve your digital goals.

Common WordPress Questions
What is WordPress and is this a right fit for our business?
WordPress is an open-source content management system, widely revered for its ease-of-use and extensive customization potential. Powering over 35% of all websites, its suitability spans from small blogs to large eCommerce sites. WordPress has a unique architecture allowing the addition of advanced functionalities via plugins and custom programming, enabling sophisticated customization to align with your specific business needs.
Can WordPress handle large hierarchies of data and scale on demand?
Yes, WordPress is exceptionally scalable and equipped to manage large data hierarchies. With its robust foundation, WordPress is adept at accommodating websites of all sizes—from small blogs to high-traffic enterprise sites. When supported by the right hosting infrastructure and optimized settings, WordPress can smoothly manage increasing traffic and scale on demand. However, for complex data hierarchies, custom programming may be required for optimal management and performance. While WordPress is inherently versatile and scalable, ensuring its excellent performance under extensive data loads and high traffic conditions may call for tailored architecture and continuous optimization.
What sort of hosting does WordPress require?
WordPress optimally functions on a hosting environment with NGINX or Apache servers. While entry-level, consumer-grade hosting might be suitable for smaller, non-critical WordPress sites, business-oriented or high-traffic websites require a more robust solution. Business-grade hosting not only offers increased resources, superior support, and improved security measures, but it also provides advanced data caching. This enhances the site’s load speed and overall performance, especially important for high-traffic websites. So for businesses using WordPress, it’s often advisable to opt for business-grade hosting over consumer-level options.
Their communication and attention to detail were exceptionally strong. Every fine detail was taken care of in a timely manner. We were never waiting for anything. They went above and beyond by including UX functions that we didn’t ask for but will greatly improve the quality of the site. The overall functionality and speed of the website are strong as well.

IronGlove Studio was very reasonable and accommodating to our needs as a veteran-run organization. The site has already received very positive feedback from the Department of Veterans Affairs — the group we’re working with and one of the organizations that provided us with the grant for the site itself. They’ve said our site is polished, clean, relevant, and easy to navigate. Derek has done a great job managing the project.
-Executive Director, NW Veterans in Technology
We’ve had 700% more engagement on this new website; it’s unbelievable. We get daily updates and can read the analytics, so it’s been a massive improvement. We’re now working on a marketing campaign for website awareness. Project management is spectacular. The process has been smooth, and the communication is excellent. IronGlove Studio puts their knowledge, wisdom, and team behind to build something that exceeds our expectations.
-Executive Director, West Linn Chamber of Commerce
Our website wasn’t built with the best practices, so we were experiencing problems with the functionality and performance. In a nutshell, it was a mess. It had over 60 WordPress plug-ins along with a bloated database. IronGlove Studio stabilized our previous website and then helped us build a brand new, custom-coded site to suit our business needs better. First, they did a complete website audit of our previous product to understand how to stabilize it. They did some development repair work just to get the website back to a good state so it could serve us while we developed the new one. The process involved strategizing our business needs and understanding how to optimize our sales funnels. We partnered with them to optimize the design and streamline the customer experience.
