The Reasons We Only Use WordPress

In 2001 French programmer Michel Valdrighi was working on a blogging platform called b2 or cafelog. He quit developing it in 2002. American blogger Matt Mullenweg and British blogger Mike Little were using the little known b2/cafelog and forked the development into what is now the most popular and well-known content management system in the world, WordPress.

While it was originally created as a blogging platform, WordPress has grown into a powerhouse website builder that holds a 50-60% share of the entire planet’s CMS (content management system) market and it powers approximately 35% of all sites online.

It is an open source CMS that allows anyone to create their very own website without having to know HTML code. If you have never created a website before, then this could be the perfect solution for you.

The best part about WordPress is that it’s easy to use and flexible enough to make different types of websites . That’s the main reason why WordPress has grown so much in popularity.

Due to its robust features, many top brands nationally and internationally use WordPress to power their websites including Time Magazine, Facebook, The New Yorker, Sony, Disney, Target, The New York Times, and more.

10 Reasons We Only Use WordPress For Your Website

  1. COMPLETELY FREE - You can download and install WordPress free from the WordPress Repository. It’s completely free! There are no costs or fees associated with using WordPress because it was designed by developers who want everyone to enjoy its benefits.
  2. EASY TO USE – Once installed, creating your first blog post couldn’t be easier thanks to WordPress’ intuitive user interface. With just a few clicks, you’re ready to post. And if you ever get stuck, there’s always help available through their extensive documentation. It is one of the most user friendly content management systems available.
  3. FLEXIBLE & EXTENSIVE–Individuals and companies alike use WordPress for their sites. There are many themes available for free download which can make your site look unique. This means that even though you may have started off making a basic blog, you could end up having a completely dynamic website within minutes.
  4. SEO FRIENDLY – Search engines like Google, Bing, and Yahoo love WordPress sites since they’re optimized well, which makes them rank higher than other platforms.
  5. MANY PLUGINS – Plugins, both free and premium plugins, allow users to extend WordPress functionality even further. Plugins such as contact forms, social media sharing buttons, image galleries etc. Depending upon the functional requirements of your website, you can probably find a plugin to meet those needs.
  6. SEAMLESS MIGRATION – When migrating data between servers and other content management systems, WordPress seamlessly takes care of everything such as posts, pages, comments, categories, tags, etc.. A good article showing this can be found on IsItWP.
  7. SECURE – Since WordPress is based on the PHP programming language, it uses secure coding practices, making it one of the most secure web applications around. No content management system is 100% secure, but the vast majority of issues that come from WordPress are because webmasters are not following basic security practices. Many businesses could and do benefit from a security and maintenance plan.
  8. SUPPORTED BY MILLIONS OF USERS – According to Hosting Tribunal  - “WordPress powers 39.6% of the internet in 2021, a growth of nearly 5% from 35% in 2020, and a 4% rise from the year before.”
  9. RELIABILITY - Based on the above statistic it is easy to see that millions of people rely on WordPress for their business website. WordPress allows any kind of business to create complex projects and websites.
  10. THEMES - There are thousands of free customizable themes out there. However, if you want to get the most out of your site, consider using a premium WordPress theme from a third-party site or have a developer create a custom theme.

These are some reasons we stick with WordPress only. By using only one platform, our development time is shorter, which saves our clients’ money. We know WordPress inside out, and we have great freedom with the advanced features that WordPress offers.
