Nearly one-third of the world’s websites, from small personal blogs to the complex sites of major corporations, are powered by WordPress. WordPress stands as only one of the site builders and content management systems that lets users download and install for free.
WordPress ranks among three of the most frequently used site building platforms in the world followed by Joomla and Drupal. However, both Joomla and Drupal require a certain level of technical expertise with HTML and PHP, meanwhile, WordPress caters to the inexperienced beginners too.
A WordPress website can be installed and run in a matter of minutes, even without any technical expertise. All that a user needs are a domain name and a hosting account. From there, an intuitive and easy to manage Admin dashboard has all the features needed to customize key features like a site’s heading and layout, and to start creating pages and posts right away.
2) Themes offer Multiple Options
Users have an array of choices for fine-tuning the appearance and functions of a new site, thanks to WordPress’s large and growing directory of themes. Many of these are instantly available to a new site owner through the WordPress theme directory, and thousands more can be purchased through design marketplaces and third-party designers from around the world. Themes can be previewed live and installed at any time to change the look and layout of a WordPress site.
WordPress includes all the elements needed to create a basic site, but many users want more specialized functions related to a site’s specific needs. The WordPress plugin storehouses hundreds of plugins that allow users to unlock features such as shopping carts, galleries, contact forms, and more to any compatible WordPress site.
4) WordPress Community
With its massive user-base, the WordPress community is one of the most helpful communities with solutions for almost any problems that the user faces. With such a community, users are promised with minimal dependence on customer solutions and instead are graced with quick solutions.
5) Mobile Responsive
Mobile responsiveness is also a factor in Google rankings, so websites need to look good on any device. WordPress offers a variety of responsive theme designs, and users can also make a static site responsive with plugins and adjustments to theme files.
