Headless WordPress architecture

Elevating your online business.

There are around 455 million websites using WordPress CMS platform. A headless setup will boost both performance and security. Combining these two, we make the most of the powerful front-end technology and world’s top CMS, and deliver to you a forceful, modern website or WooCommerce webshop.

Traditional WordPress renders content to the visitor with server-side rendering, since it’s PHP. Each time a visitor clicks on a new page, the browser reaches out to the web server and grabs all the content needed. Hence, the result: slow processes that ultimately hurt the experience of a website. But there is a solution for that.

Headless WordPress development is a relatively new approach, and its reputation is only going to grow. It separates traditional frontend from backend and allows ultimate authority over both. This concept in software development grants us a high level of technical flexibility, so we are able to develop impeccable omnichannel customer experience. Furthermore, a headless CMS and PWA are a match made in heaven, and the outcome is – great performance benefits, even with large and complex webshops or websites.

Greatest advantages of Headless WordPress

  • Decoupling front-end and back-end makes it easier to redesign and update
  • Your website can be reached offline because PWA stores data in your user’s browsers
  • Faster page loading and high scalability due to server-side rendering
  • Greatly simplified process of debugging single-page applications
  • Improved Core Web Vital scores and better page speed

When to choose for Headless WordPress

The webshop needs to be compatible with multiple devices

Flexibility to work with any framework that you want (e.g. Nuxt.js, Gatsby, React) is giving you the green light to display and publish content on different channels at once, from websites to mobile apps, smartwatches, or even digital kiosk displays.

You want to improve SEO and UX

Noticeable improvement in website loading times is important for SEO. Furthermore, it also benefits user experience and keeps visitors on the site much longer – turn the visitors of your e-commerce site into your customers.

You want forward-looking approach

API-based WordPress theme is undeniably future-proof as integrates easily with new technologies and devices, AR, VR, etc.

Security shouldn’t be questioned

Since the backend data is separated from the frontend, it is more secure. Therefore, and it will reduce chances of the third-party application issues or XXS and DDoS attacks, while API-first nature simplifies the integration with cybersecurity services.

More control over the design layout

With headless WordPress, your design will be unrestricted, which means you’ll have complete control over every pixel of every viewpoint, and the ability to modify the design without changing the content.

Balancing the budget

Single-page apps lower the impact on your servers overall, meaning you can save money by using a simpler hosting plan for the same amount of traffic.

What is making a Headless WordPress interesting for developers?

Using WordPress as a Headless CMS provides you the commodity to use whatever programming language you choose. The flexibility to work with various tools or applications, as well as to determine which front-end frameworks to manipulate, allows your development team to do what they are best at. In addition, a full control over all the codes running on your users’ devices will enable tracking, optimization, and acceleration of practically all interaction.

What makes a Headless WordPress valuable for e-commerce?

In a headless architecture, the WordPress CMS uses a REST (representational state transfer) API (application programming interface) which makes it easy to create applications that can connect with an online store and its products, orders, and customers. Besides that, a REST API is responsible for greater scalability and flexibility, which is of a great importance for businesses that need to handle a large volume of data or traffic (for example during the holiday sales). Equally important is the feature of a possibility to continue browsing and filling in the shopping cart even when the internet connection is unstable or offline.
