I make WordPress websites as WordPress can build a small website or a big website and makes it easy to utilise most website functions any client requires. It integrates with other websites, it can be made to look like what you choose it to look like, it can do what is required of it.
WordPress is a free and open source blogging tool and a dynamic content management system (CMS) based on PHP and MySQL. It has many features including a plug-in architecture and a template system. WordPress has a database of over 18,000 plugins.
WordPress is used by over 16.7% of Alexa Internet’s “top 1 million” websites and as of August 2011 manages 22% of all new websites. WordPress is currently the most popular blogging system in use on the Internet. As of December 2011, version 3.0 had been downloaded over 65 million times.
I started making websites with HTML using WYSIWYG software on my computer to edit HTML, until I discovered Content Management Systems. I tried many different platforms out but over 5 years ago I always returned to WordPress. Like the millions of other people – I became a WordPress website builder. I know that WordPress can do really amazing things.
WordPress Websites Are For Beginners or Experts
As a bonus, the owner is less dependent on their webmaster. The owner of a WordPress website can login with their Internet browser and edit a page on their website, add a new event, add a news flash or take down old news and delete out of date information. A beginner can do this after only watching a short video. An expert will not feel cramped by WordPress, it adapts itself your level of competence and looks good regardless!
Those websites you see with links to Facebook with mixed comments, and a twitter feed in the sidebar and icons asking you to like and share the page… They are often WordPress websites.
- eCommerce websites can be made with WordPress.
- You can have a forum or chat room on a WordPress website.
- You can easily stream video and audio files on a WordPress website
- WordPress makes it easy to display a gallery of pictures.
So you can be assured that your website will be built on a this reliable and highly popular platform with a premium theme and the best plugin architecture there is to run your website functions. I don’t use anything other than WordPress to make my websites.
