Canton Web Services has its roots in web development dating all the way back to 1996, when the web was nothing more than a collection of inter-related sites containing mostly text and images. Today’s web is vastly different, with interactive pages that engage a user and create a total online experience.
Over the years, CWS has attempted to conduct business as a jack-of-all-trades. A “we can do everything” attitude. The problem with that is that internet technology has grown and splintered and, as a result, a smaller company would either need to hire a large staff of specialists in each discipline, or subcontract the work to others, which makes a project more expensive.
To help hone our skills, we are now avid specialists of only a small number of platforms. WordPress has grown and matured enough to become the basis of a powerful all-inclusive website, so it has become our go-to platform for many of the sites we create. Through the use of a very flexible theming sytem and a wide variety of plugins, we can make a site be anything that we want it to. Using WordPress as the content management system, we can provide our clients with a much more powerful website for less money, while giving them full control over their own website content.
After all, plain old HTML is so 1996!
We do specialize in a couple of other platforms. In forum software, we still support vBulletin up through version 3.8 for optimization and customization, but for the future, we are insisting our clients move to a much more modern and user-friendly platform: XenForo. For other specific needs, we have a small collection of worthwhile online applications we can recommend. Still, we have narrowed these down to very few, so we can specialize in only a few systems, rather than try to be an expert on all of them.
You can be assured that when you contract us to work on a site for you, you will be getting quality work and expert service. This is what our company was built on 15 years ago. And that will never change!
