Why choose WordPress? April 28, 2021

Most people are increasingly opting to create a site using the WordPress platform. We will explain why this is the case and why this particular platform is the right choice if you do not have any experience with programming.

What is WordPress?

WordPress is a fast, easy and efficient platform for creating websites and blogs. It is a Content Management System (CMS). Installation is free, easy, and takes only a few minutes.

It is based on the PHP programming language and uses a MySQL database. Software is open-source, which means that all users can modify or improve its content. It has a lot of themes and plugins that will help you make the website whatever you imagine.

A brief history

WordPress has been around since 2003, created as a joint work by Matt Mullenweg and Mike Little. The name WordPress gave Malenweg’s friend Christine Selleck Tremoulet. It experienced a rise only the following year when the competing software Movable Type increased the prices of its services.

Today, WordPress runs on 39.5% of all websites worldwide and 64.1% of the CMS site market.

It has two platforms – WordPress.com and WordPress.org. The first you can use for hobby blogging (like the Blogger platform). If you still want to start a more serious business from which you can earn and create a more serious image of your business – you will choose another.

Here are some basic features of both:

  • Free to use
  • The platform owns the domain and hosting for your site
  • No possibility to add plugins
  • Limited for customization and earning potential
  • It is in the domain name
  • It can remove your site – because it is in their ownership
  • You buy the domain and host yourself
  • Ability to choose plugins and widgets that the site will use
  • Full customization and adjustment
  • You have full ownership of the site
  • There are no barriers to earning
