It Is Not Possible to Customize Websites with Pre-Designed CMS!

There is no place for designing a website with frameworks such as WordPress, Joomla, and the like when it comes to custom web design. But why is that? Because these websites can customize the website and the changes the owners can apply to these websites are limited to some appearance changes and some other superficial changes. Plus, designing websites with pre-designed CMS such as WordPress doesn't require much programming knowledge. It can be done by small companies or even individuals who cannot analyze complicated programming projects. Therefore, they don't follow the procedure professionally.
All the modules and facilities used in WordPress and Joomla are programmed by individuals who have no idea about your business. They only want to present a general ability that can be used in all kinds of websites. However, customized web design allows you to achieve all your pre-determined goals by applying all the facilities to create a unique characteristic for the site.
In the midterm, WordPress websites will cause many problems for organizations, no matter big or small. To mention one of them, being hacked easily due to its open-source. The programming language in WordPress and Joomla is PHP. No matter where they locate, every individual in the world can access the main source of these websites. The essence of these websites was programmed to be easily accessed for anyone to create new modules and abilities. But for hackers, the drawback changes into merit! They can quickly steal information and remove these kinds of websites out of reach; with only a few clicks! Of course, in-time updates and perpetual care can considerably save your website from these hazards, but anyway, WordPress and Joomla websites are more likely to be hacked than other kinds of websites.
Interference of some modules and facilities and disability of some features after a new ability was added are some of the other problems that all WordPress and Joomla website owners may face. Unfortunately, Companies that design websites with pre-designed CMS (i.e. WordPress and Joomla) keep these flaws a secret from their clients.
The only advantage of pre-designed CMS is their low prices and the little time they take to be prepared. And that is ultimately why these websites became popular. For, anybody can have a WordPress or Joomla website with any budget and, even in some cases, completely free. But, ATTENTION! No cheap website can be custom.

Some Points about Designing Service Websites:

In the following, we will discuss the characteristics of some common service websites, which of course have a custom web design:

1. Custom Web Design for Airline Agencies:

In order to design a custom website, we should pay attention to some points about the intended company and business. Also, take the needs of their customers under consideration. Some of these points are general, but some of them are specifically related to your company. For instance, to design a custom website for an airline agency, we should pay attention to some general points:
- Easy definition of the packages by the admin.
- High speed in finding the best packages by the user.
But, every airline agency can have specific points too:
- Particular focus on special tours like European tours.
- Using colour scheme for branding.
- Absorbing their customers' attention to the discounts they have for exceptional hotels.
- Gaining attention to observe social media.
- Providing customized videos for different parts of the website.
- Need for different access levels for several admins.
- Need for increasing or lowering the cost of the tours, hotels and tickets.
- Possibility of advanced search and professional filtering in different parts of the website.

An industrial website should convey the sense of being modern and build trust among its customers. Representing the history, experiences, and pictures of the intended factory can benefit the web design process.

3. Medical Custom Web Design:

Medical science covers a vast area, and that is why designing websites in this regard is a bit complicated. But generally, we can divide the medical website into two categories:
1. Cosmetic websites
2. Other medical websites

Also, it is essential to present some pictures of the office or the clinic. In Cosmetic websites, using high-quality photographs and benefiting from the photos of previous clients can help the website convey a better understanding of the applicant's procedure. Furthermore, flawless mobile-friendly access for the users possesses a great deal of importance in medical websites; nowadays, almost every search regarding medical issues is done through smartphones.

4. E-Commerce Custom Web Design:

Any website which provides you with the possibility of making a purchase is an E-commerce website. Sometimes a Service website can be an E-commerce website, too, assigning a part of the website to the sale of a particular service or product. We should consider many factors in order to design an E-commerce website; so that the possibility of its success would increase. When it comes to payments, customers trust rather hard. The best thing to ease this procedure is to assign your web design to a competent company that is professional in the field and has ample experience regarding customized web design.
