Here at The Techy Hub, our services include developing quite a number of different websites. However, there are three kinds of website most commonly requested by our clients. Following this, we also receive many questions on why we have different kinds of websites and their differences. To address these questions without causing confusion, we decided to relate our services to a metaphor about shirts.
We all own shirts for different occasions. From the old, stained ones to be worn at home or formal ones to be worn to work. Though shirts are essentially just everyday apparel, our website development services have a lot more in common with shirts that you might think. We’ll be linking our services with three different kinds of shirts while going through pricing and features.
Plain round-necked shirt
Possibly the most common shirt there is, easily found in any departmental store (or in your home closet). As they are all factory made, they look the same, with limited alterations. Just like this shirt, one of our services include building a website for you based on a WordPress template. We use a WordPress template that suits the feel of your company the best and replace the functions according to your requests. It is the simplest, therefore the cheapest service we provide. This does not mean that the end result will look bad, most of the templates have clean and professional looks. It simply means that your website may look similar to others (relate back to factory made) with lesser features than what you would like to have.
We do get requests from clients to add new layouts to existing ones, which can be done but will cost you. This is because most WordPress templates are build by authors who have their own ways of building a website. So, to complete the request, we would first have to dissect the code of a website and then add the layout requested by the client. The end result will be what you asked for, but it still might not look the best it can. So for plain round-necked shirts, take it as it is! Here’s an example of what a ‘plain round-necked shirt’ website looks like.
Collared, work shirt
So this shirt already looks different from the previous one. With the long sleeves, collar and buttons, it looks more suited to be in an office. This shirt is factory made, yet designed specifically to make the wearer look smarter in it. This shirt relates to our mid-range service, whereby we custom-design and build a WordPress website just for you. This service enables you to be in more control of how your website looks and feels, even enabling more functions. The only downside of this service is security. Your website may face a higher chance of being hacked, as WordPress uses a well-known cms (a service that allows users to change content without touching the code). This service would be perfect for you if you plan to start a more general website, without passing sensitive information such as bank information or personal identities.

Bespoke Tailored Shirt
Everyone knows about tailor-made shirts, though most never had one made. They are made using careful measurements, high quality material and designs chosen to fit the wearer perfectly. The shirt can come with the customer’s choice of tie, bow or any other extras to complement the shirt. This seemingly superior shirt parallels our final service. We will custom-design your website and built from scratch using a proposed framework (Laravel, Ruby on Rails, Code Ignitor). This is recommended for you if you are looking to start a website dealing with sensitive or private data. You will still be able to be in control of your website and it’s features. This results in a beautiful, secured website that protects sensitive information and data on your website from hackers.
(Of course you can argue that it is not necessary to have tailor-made shirts but a fashion stylist may turn his nose up on your clothes. Just saying.) Intrigued? This http://ohmyenglish.com.my/ms/utama is an example of what you get from this service. Something out of the norm, and designed according to your every need.
So there you have it! We are open during regular business hours unless mentioned so in our Facebook page. We would gladly accept any inquiries to clear confusion or to help you in choosing a website perfect for you. Feel free to contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
