For most of the websites we build, we use a content management system called WordPress. While there is a number of other options, we use this one for a number of reasons.
It is the most widely used content management system in the world and it is open source. Over 35% of all websites are powered by WordPress. There is a number of advantages to using such a widely used system. No matter who builds your website, you can take it over yourself or change to a different provider, and not have to be worried about being locked into a proprietary system.
There is a number of themes and plugins build for WordPress. So whether you need a custom form, you need to integrate Instagram feeds, you want to backup your website, or a number of other things; there are both free and premium plugins that can help you. With a little work, you can add all kinds of great features.
WordPress is designed to be easy to use, and with a little help it is fairly easy to learn how to make a lot of changes on your own. Or if you want someone else to take care of it, they can do most tasks fairly quickly. Either way you save time and money.
Since there is so many websites build with WordPress, there is a lot of people involved. Both other site owners that can help you find solutions to your questions, as well as a number of contractors and agencies that specialize in working with WordPress. No matter what your need, you will be able to find people to help.
Although it comes with a number of great features out of the box, WordPress also can be customized to suit your unique needs. If there is no plugin for the feature you need, you can always custom develop any additional features.
Any website needs to be easy to find in search engines like Google. While WordPress has a number of options built in, with plugins you can take it to the next level.
Like the rest of the online world, WordPress is rapidly changing. Changing to adapt to the future. And the future is bright. Now is an excellent time to make a choice that will benefit you for the future.
