Great-looking websites don’t have to cost thousands of dollars. Using Content Management Software (CMS) saves on design and programming services, reducing development time and keeping budgets in check.
Why you should consider WordPress for your website.
WordPress is free open-source software based on the scripting language PHP and MySQL database. According to Wikipedia, it is used by over 14.7% of Alexa Internet’s “Top 1 Million” websites and as of August 2011 manages 22% of all new websites. WordPress is currently the most popular blogging system in use on the Internet.
WordPress is best known as a blogging tool but it is much, much more. There are thousands of plugins and themes (many of them free) and an army of developers adding new functionality each day. Whatever you are looking for, chances are there’s already a free plugin.
CMS systems store their content in databases like MySQL. Pages are created dynamically using templates or themes, allowing you to switch design almost instantly. Themes can be customized with your own content and images to create stunning looking websites in days not weeks.
