  • Three Server Environments, Not One

    We provide separate development, staging and live environments

    It's not overkill. The process of continual improvement through iterative development means that we are constantly making changes to your website. Deploy > Test > Improve. So we use three separate server environments to insure that your website is always up and operating—No "Under Construction" pages allowed.

    Development Server:

    The process of developing a website can get pretty funky. Things break. Pages render incorrectly. Links break. Frankly, no one needs to see any of this process except the coders. So all development happens in a separate development environment.

    Staging Server:
    When increments are fully developed we move things to a staging server. Here we present to you the completed work for your approval and testing. Only when the site is fully approved and stable to we take your work public.
    Live Server:
    When the site has been fully tested and know to be stable, we load your site to our fast, reliable real-world server.  

    Wordpress, Joomla, Woocommerce

    Yes, we can host. You get a development server as well.

    There are several issues that arise from hosting on Wordpress:

  • You split up your link juice so that you don't get all search engine benefits of self-hosting.
  • You only have a single server environment, so your site redesigns can make things go horribly wrong killing your public web site.
  • You cannot perform a full range of web analytics.
  • Wordpress updates are automatically installed but updates may not be compatible with your site or plug-ins.

  • Hosting your Woordpress or Joomla site with Synthesis:MCM gives you the advantages of these easily upgradable solutions without the disadvantages.
