What is headless CMS in web development?
In web development headless CMSs can be used as part of a Jamstack web application, where the presentation layer is separated from the content storage and management.
How does a headless CMS work?
A headless CMS (Content Management System) is a CMS that doesn't have a presentation layer. Meaning it organizes your content, and allows access via an API (application program interface) instead of publishing web pages. When you need to create a site base on this content, you query the CMS for the content you want and assemble your page. Typically this happens before you deploy to your web server, allowing you to deliver blazing fast static web pages to your customers.
What is a headless website?
"headless website" is kind of a misnomer. The term we are looking for is "headless cms". This refers to a CMS that does not have a presentation layer by default.
How do I enable headless in WordPress?
Headless WordPress can be enabled via plugins, that redirect front end requests and allow for API access. Alternately you can also utilize a headless WordPress platform-as-a-service such as WP-Atlas from WP-Engine.
Can you use WordPress as a headless CMS?
Absolutely yes! WordPress makes a great CMS for headless websites. One of the major benefits, it that if your team is already familiar with the WordPress editing experience, you can develop a headless site without much change to your content flows.
Is headless WordPress a good idea?
Absolutely! If you are contemplating the switch to a static site, and you are familiar with the CMS capabilities of WordPress, a headless WordPress website may be a great option. You'll have the opportunity to squeeze every last bit of performance out of your site, as well as giving your site full design freedom.
What is headless WordPress development?
Headless WordPress development refers to the technique of using WordPress as a headless CMS, separating the presentation layer from the content storage and delivery. This allows developers much more flexibility with regards to UI / UX and performance.
How do you provide post-launch support?
Our company provides a dedicated maintenance team & plan for every application we create, as well as a code quality guarantee that's written into our agreements. Our maintenance plans include such features as automated bug detection, uptime and performance monitoring, as well as developer hours. We've been in business for nearly 20 years, and we are here to support and maintain our client's sites.
What sets you apart from other agencies offering web development and WordPress development services?
We focus on bringing the enterprise-level best practices that we've developed over the last 20 years to our WordPress development services and web application development practice. Quality and communication are our touchstones. We don't outsource anything, and we strive understand our clients' needs and business model at a deep level.

What is your process for website development?
Our development process begins with an identification of our clients needs. Once we understand the scope of the project, as well as the business processes involved, then we can suggest a product design that satisfies those needs. We then work with our clients to develop project milestones and performance goals for the development process.
