Is the WordPress CMS secure?

WordPress is as safe as the professionals managing its security. Your WordPress website will be safer if the company managing your site security checks plugins, applies security patches, and employs security best practices.

 

Can I use other fonts on my WordPress website?

Yes. WordPress allows custom fonts to be uploaded and used on your website. Consider the Easy Google Fonts plugin for WordPress.

 

How can I optimize site speed on WordPress?

You can use CDNs to optimize your WordPress page-load speed. CDNs help deliver content faster, optimize code on themes, and load as little data as possible.

 

Does using a lot of plugins slow down my website?

Yes. Every new line of code adds a variable amount of time to loading times. The issue isn’t as apparent for smaller or custom-made plugins that have been optimized, but it can quickly become a problem if you install many large plugins.

 

Is WordPress mobile-friendly?

The code behind WordPress is mobile-friendly. However, not all WordPress themes are mobile-friendly. Make sure to check the theme description before installing it.

 

How expensive are paid themes & plugins?

Most popular commercial themes cost between $50 and $60, while popular premium plugins range between $50 and $200. They’re all either one-time purchases or subscriptions, so check the description to be sure.
