What is WordPress?

WordPress is a tool used to create websites. It is an open source content management system (CMS) that greatly simplifies the handling of digital content to produce elegant, user-friendly websites.

Why is WordPress free?

WordPress is open source software. It has been created by a community of developers who have made it free to use and modify by the public. This vast community of developer input and peer review is what makes WordPress such a rich and dynamic CMS.

Who uses WordPress?

29% of websites are built using WordPress! That is 1 in 4 websites online! There is good reason for so many people choosing WordPress.

WordPress began as a blogging platform but it has evolved far beyond this. It is the perfect solution for most small to medium size businesses as it doesn’t require an IT team to support it. The business can have a suitable website developed for them at less cost than traditional hand-coded websites. The result is a modern, user-friendly website that supports the business.

If everyone is using it, won’t all websites look the same?

The beauty of WordPress is that it is not only simple but it is highly flexible. There are thousands of templates available to use with WordPress and in most cases the same template implemented by different designers can turn out a website that looks vastly different.
