Start with Peatcms
Current alpha release is stable enough to host simple websites (like this one, or for instance Bertoo). For the moment your design will be connected to Peatcms by hand.
We are looking for pilot projects to gather feedback about the backend and have it tested by actual users. Pilot projects are not free but we’re willing to waive some of the costs.
You should definitely contact us if ambiance or mood is important for the website you are creating, especially if supported by video and / or audio. Peatcms offers a seamless browsing experience as standard, including progressive loading. Meanwhile, by only exchanging the (text) data it stays lightning fast. Video (like the Lego gears in the background of this website) and audio keep playing smoothly while the visitor browses your website.
Peatcms vs. Wordpress
This probably warrants a blog post of some sort, but it comes down to this: Peatcms has way less options and turn-key solutions than Wordpress. However, it’s also not weighed down by history: Peatcms uses state of the art programming principles and strict separation of functionality (layers), resulting in a flexible and stable environment to create websites in.
Also, having a technician build your new site from the ground up ensures the code will be lean and fast while having total freedom in the design. In Peatcms content editing and formatting are a breeze, straight out of the box. Things that are hard to achieve with Wordpress.
