Why choose open source?

Businesses face the choice between open source and proprietary software for building their websites but in our opinion open source will always come out on top and some of our preferred solutions are:

Here’s why we will always massive supporters of open source:

The software is usually free

Open source software is usually free and open for anyone to use. Developers create it for the good of the web community.

Available to customise

With access to the core code, you can customise and modify your website to your heart’s content. The possibilities are endless.

No vendor lock in

You won’t have to worry about being locked in with a particular vendor, who can charge whatever they like. The software is yours.

Constantly evolving

Open source software is updated on a frequent basis and tends to experience far less bugs and security threats than proprietary software, as developers around the world are constantly working on it.

Great fit for your business

The fact open source software is so flexible makes it a great fit for any business. Whether you’re looking to sell your products online or create a simple brochure website, you can tailor it to tick all the boxes.

Excellent support

Open source software comes with its own enthusiastic community of supporters. What’s more, many digital marketing companies specialise in open source software and we’re one of them!
