Next-level Speed & Security with Next.js!

While visual builders like WordPress have their merits, Next.js stands out as an exceptional choice for developing not just complex and feature-rich web applications but simple “brochure” sites as well.

  • Client-side, Server-side & Static Rendering

    Next.js allows you to mix client-side interactivity, server-side rendering & static-site generation. This ensures that all of your content is delivered as efficiently as possible, improving your user's overall browsing experience.

  • Performance

    Next.js prioritises performance by leveraging intelligent optimisation techniques. This ensures fast-loading web pages, superior user experience, and improved conversion rates. Platforms like WordPress, Squarespace, or Wix can't match the speed & efficiency of Next.js.

  • Search Engine Optimisation

    By incorporating server-side rendering & SSG, Next.js improves SEO by providing search engines with fully rendered HTML pages. This results in better indexing and visibility for your website in search engine results.

  • Scalability

    Next.js offers scalability by providing support for static site, server-side, and client side data fetching. This allows your website to handle huge traffic spikes and accommodate future growth effortlessly on hosts like Netlify & Vercel.

  • Customisation

    Next.js offers unparalleled flexibility, enabling me to create highly customised and tailored web applications according to your unique requirements. Unlike visual builders, Next.js doesn’t limit you to predefined templates or themes, providing endless possibilities for design and functionality.

  • Security

    When it comes to security, Next.js offers significant advantages over WordPress, especially when used for static site generation. The huge array of poorly coded plugins and themes available for WordPress make it challenging to ensure their compatibility and security.

Upgrading a Site from WordPress to Next.js

If your content is managed through a CMS like WordPress, then upgrading the frontend to Next.js is easy! Next.js seamlessly integrates with popular CMS platforms, allowing you to leverage its advantages without the need for a complete content migration. By incorporating Next.js into your existing setup, you can harness the power of server-side rendering, static site generation, and enhanced performance and security on the frontend while maintaining the familiar WordPress workflow for adding new content in the backend. If you want to move away from using WordPress as a CMS there are plenty of alternatives like Dato CMS & Contentful which work great with Next.js as well.
