In the 90s, when the internet was still in its early stages, websites were painstakingly created with static HTML pages. In HTML, each page had a separate file for it and all websites were collections of files. This meant that every update to a webpage needed a new file upload. So there were limitations on what you could do with your website.
But thankfully, static HTML pages are a thing of the past. Very few people use them anymore, especially not when there is WordPress.
WordPress is what the modern world uses to create websites. While many people may think of blogging when they think of WordPress, it is more than a blogging platform. It is an open source content management system that offers some powerful features and tools.
What is a content management system (CMS)?
A CMS is like a control room, where you can manage all the elements of your website and store them in a remote location. These elements include blog posts, images, text, social media, links, videos, etc. WordPress is only one of many CMS systems available today that lets you build a full website. But our experience has taught us that it is also the most user-friendly and powerful.
What makes WordPress great?
The fact that WordPress is open-source is what sets it apart from other CMS systems. What this means is that WordPress is completely free. So WordPress developers from around the world are able to access the platform and contribute to it. An entire community of loyal WordPress supporters has grown up around it. This community is a large pool of people who contribute to the creation of new tools, plug-ins, developments and other improvements all the time.
There are also people who offer tips and advice on social media, and new themes that they have developed for the community. You can find out more about these at WordPress.org.
Why we love WordPress
Because of the huge and talented community of people supporting WordPress, it has become the most elegant and easy to use of all content management systems available. WordPress makes it simple for us to design and create websites of the best quality. It also allows us to customize them, make them cutting edge and take them to their maximum capabilities.
And while WordPress development is an easy and exciting process, the platform also makes it incredibly easy for you, the owner of the website, to maintain the site even without any help from us. Other CMSs can take an entire day for you to learn the basics while still leaving you confused. WordPress, on the other hand, makes it easy for you. After we set up your website and it goes live, you will be able to take it from there with very little training.
