HotDot Web Services specialise in offering WordPress, Joomla and Drupal based websites giving you the advantage of a professional database driven website that is modular, extensible and highly customisable. This allows you to save time and have us manage it for you or save money and update content and media yourself. You can rest assured that in the unfortunate event that our entire team gets eaten by intergalactic space zombies you can find another web hero to help you as these are well known open source non-proprietary technologies. A nice philosophy we like to adhere to is “If you love you’re clients, set them free.”

There are lots of advantages to using a modern CMS. With a CMS you don’t have to be technical or know HTML. This allows you to be timely and independent when it comes to content updates.  The layout is separate from the content which brings about great efficiency when you want to make changes without being destructive. We can give your site a completely updated new look by changing the theme without having to give your site a total overhaul. Being online you can make updates from anywhere in the world and collaborate with other staff or team members. You don’t have to work from a specific machine with ‘source files’. CMS’s are also SEO friendly for sitemaps and keywords and have the advantage of being future proof as the core can be updated relatively easily and often automatically. Being extensible we can integrate with your Email Marketing system such as iMailSend and even auto-post to your Facebook Page or Twitter Feed saving you tons of time and greatly increasing your market visibility. How cool is that? We love our CMS’s and you will too!
