Why WordPress?

WordPress Logo

WordPress has evolved through out the years from just a “blogging” platform into a versatile content management system (CMS). While WordPress can be used to create a simple blog, it now also allows for the creation of fully functional websites and mobile applications.


According to a survey by W3Techs.com, 23.2% of all websites on the Internet are powered by WordPress. WordPress has grown in popularity, with many top brands such as NY Times, Facebook, Sony and more, mostly due to it’s ease of use, robust features and flexibility.


What’s the cost for this popular platform?
Free. That’s right! WordPress is free software - free to download, install, use and modify it. It is open source that means the source code of the software is available for any one to study, modify and play with.


Why do millions use WordPress?
WordPress is fairly easy to use. Most WordPress users are neither web designers nor programmers. As a matter of fact, most people start using WordPress without any prior knowledge of designing websites.


WordPress is an ideal candidate for any industry because of the thousands of templates (themes) available to choose from.  The flexibility of a WordPress theme can be extended with one or more of the thousands of free and premium plugins available.


WordPress not only offers a clean, visual presence for a website but it allows the content to be easily managed, searched and protected. Its dashboard feature allows the users to manage and schedule all site content. By design, WordPress is very SEO friendly, so when searched, your website and content will be found. Developed with security in mind, WordPress is considered quite safe and secure to run any website. 


With all the benefits this platform offers, why not start your own WordPress powered website.
