Our (brief) Story
Our (brief) Story
In 2010 Alexander Taft founded The Web Dorks not just because he secured a funny domain & business name, but to lend his growing expertise to small businesses and nonprofits looking for easy and affordable entry onto the Web. Like many of you, Alex had a hard time finding affordable collaborators with local ties (so much is now poorly outsourced). In response, he combined his technical acumen with fellow webdevs, graphic designers, developers, and copy writers all based in the United States of America and thus was born: The Web Dorks.

Content Management Systems (CMS)
Content Management Systems (CMS)
A content management system is software that keeps track of every piece of content on your Web site, much like your local public library keeps track of books and stores them. Content can be simple text, photos, music, video, documents, or just about anything you can think of. A major advantage of using a CMS is that it requires almost no technical skill or knowledge to manage. Since the CMS manages all your content, you don't have to.
What is Joomla?
What is Joomla?
Joomla! is an award-winning content management system (CMS), which enables you to build Web sites and powerful online applications. Many aspects, including its ease-of-use and extensibility, have made Joomla! the most popular Web site software available.
What is Wordpress?
What is Wordpress?
Historically, WordPress has been regarded as primarily a platform for bloggers without the sophistication and security required by business websites. This is no longer true. The fact that WordPress has roots in the blogging community is, in fact, a massive strength: bloggers need the ability to log in and publish an article as quickly as possible. WordPress can bring that simplicity and speed to all facets of your website as a fully functioning and dynamic CMS.
Hosting Options
Hosting Options
The Web Dorks offers a variety of hosting options to our clients, from inexpensive shared hosting options, to high powered (fast!) VPS/Cloud and Dedicated Servers.

We will take the time to walk you through all the options, and can either transfer your final site to a hosting platform of your choosing, or host it directly on our servers. Web hosting services work by storing your website files in high-powered computers (web servers) connected to a very fast network. When someone types in your web address (such as www.thewebdorks.com), the Internet connects to the web server holding your website files and then transfers your website information back to their computer. From there they can surf and view the pages of your website.
