Why WordPress Is The Best Website Platform

WordPressThere are many different ways of creating a website, you can purchase industry standard software like Dreamweaver and take courses to understand how to use it, or you can use content management software such as WordPress that allows you to quickly and easily get a website live within minutes. This is one of the many reasons why WordPress is the best website platform for beginners and professionals alike.

With WordPress, you are getting a system that takes minutes to install on your server, and then access to thousands of free and paid themes. Your website will look professional from the moment you start. Furthermore, there’s a wide range of plugins and widgets that can easily be applied to the site to make it more user friendly and interactive.

And the only skills you need are the ability to write, click the mouse button and add this stuff in. It really is easy to add content, it’s just like posting on a forum really, and has a very low learning curve. But, because of its flexibility, you can be as basic or advanced as you feel, and as you grow to learn more about it, so to will your site grow and utilize new concepts and designs being created for WordPress.

Here’s some other great aspects about the WordPress system:

WordPress is Open Source:

This means it is free, other people can easily create themes, plugins and so on for you to use with it, and it is completely flexible.

WordPress is Quick to Setup:

This means you can focus on having several websites and easily be able to maintain them all without having to create them all from scratch. This is particularly useful if you are getting into internet marketing for example. You can have many websites set up for different products you are selling.

WordPress Gives Multi User Functionality:

Are you a small business or organization that requires more than one person to add content to the site? Again, WordPress can help. It enables the site owner to set up users for them to post to the site. What’s more, certain privileges can be applied to these users so they only have access to posting content, and therefore not be able to mess around with the functional side of the site.

Website and Blog All-in-One:

Although WordPress is set up more as a blogging platform, it is still very easy to configure it to be a stand alone site, with a blog attached. There are many plugins which make this even easier to do, and so any small business or organization can have a website and blog created in a couple of hours that looks great, and is ready to go.

Backing Up and Security:

WordPress is very easy to back up, and there are many secure plugins to choose from to make it more secure than it already is.

These are just a few of the most important reasons why WordPress is the best website platform, but there are many more. It’s major advantages are the low learning curve, and speed of having a site up and running. If you are a person who needs a website, but has little time and money to set one up, then WordPress is your friend. It’s a fantastic system used by millions of people across the globe.

    Hey Tom,

    WordPress is one of the best MVC out there right now. It is easy to set up, easy to install SEO plugins and manage, easy to create accounts and allot privileges as you said.

    Rumor has it that WordPress also gives some additional SEO points for BING and Yahoo.

    I love WordPress too, it still seems to be the easiest to use.

    Just starting to experience with the platform and I enjoy it very much. Great article.

  4. I remember when it was called b2/CafePress. It was either that or some other thing called Nucleus, and something called Grey Matter. The final selling point? b2 had RSS. Then it became WordPress, and I was convinced this was the blogging platform of the Internet.

    Thus began my love affair with WordPress. Drupal and Joomla, while nice and powerful, is hard as hell to use, and often times WP can do their jobs with much more ease.

    Also, it’s teaching me more than just writing; design and coding too.

    Call me a brand advocate, but there’s nothing better. GO WORDPRESS!

    I use WordPress.com and love it.

    I use it for my business site (above) and for a personal blog (http://lisascreativespace.wordpress.com). The themes are fantastic and easy to transfer your site/blog from one to the other. It’s also easy to transfer posts to your new WordPress url, if need be! I also love that it takes care of the hosting for you.

    I’ve helped people totally unfamiliar with site-building and blogging play with it and produce their own site/blog. It really is so user-friendly. I’m with you, Tom!

    Im building my own site now and have wrestled with the idea of going completely with WordPress. My biggest problem is that I don’t want to use a template. I am not a graphic designer, but am pretty good with photoshop & have a layout I really like in I-web (which apple is abandoning). WordPress makes you conform to a template unless you are more advanced with code (which I am not).

    Hi Robert,

    you’re right WordPress is an easy to install and easy to use Blog CMS. I use it by myself for multiple projects.
    A little more “around WordPress” would be a good idea for your article.

    What I enjoy are the large numer of plugins for every need.

    Ever since I discovered WordPress years ago (even though it’s been around for a lot longer than that) I have been hooked. Many still think that it’s just a blogging platform, but it’s so much more than that, as stated in your article above. 🙂

    Plus, there are so many people who aren’t HTML or PHP or CSS savvy that having a WordPress site is really cost and time efficient since they don’t have to create their own template, they just pick and choose!

    So I definitely agree that WordPress really is the best platform!

    I am confused. There is so much out there about setting up a web site. What I need is — a BUSINESS WEB SITE THAT i CAN SELL PRODUCTS FROM = Any advice ??

  10. Karen Glenn says:

    I am not technical, and within the past month, I set up two websites with absolutely no problem. I am really fairly awed by WordPress. I love the plug-in as well.

  11. Just 2 thing, wordpress is user-friendly and best for SEO purpose..Thanks Lisa

    And the worst blog/website platform? Hands down, DotNetNuke.

    Dear WordPressers and The Curious,

    What is WordPress anyways, it’s more than just CMS (a simple user-friendly content management system) it’s a CAREER for some people.

    Yes, I did say that right, SOME people exploit naive business owners into inferior, cheap, mass produced copies of real websites. Real websites that Real programmers write. real websites, hand crafted after hours and hours of labor, no simple “install” button like wordpress. What it also doesn’t have that WordPress does? A huge hole in it’s security. The security on almost EVERY wordpress website. Google wordwress security. Now, I don’t know about YOU but I like hand-crafted AMERICAN MADE websites. So why would you hire someone to use WordPress anyways? Because it’s easy(lower quality, same price). If you want originally, and craftsmanship.. Buy a website made by a real programmer. You’ll never go back to WordPress.
