Why I use WordPress?

Why I use WordPress?

WordPress is the most popular open source Content Management System (CMS) and is used on over 73 million websites. It is free to install, deploy, and upgrade. Thousands of plugins and templates power a flexible and simple interface, which reduces cost and deployment time.

So here are a few reasons why I choose it as my go-to Web Design Platform

It is the most popular CMS in the world

WordPress has the largest market share of all CMS and as such a lot of users are familiar and require less training.

Highly customisable

WordPress is popular because of its flexible framework that allows designers and developers to create and modify layouts and applications. Custom themes and plugins can make it look almost unrecognisable on the front end.

Designed for anyone, not just developers

Before WordPress became a popular CMS for website development, it was developed for non-tech savvy bloggers. Most of the user-interface components are easily learned by the majority of people.

Lower setup and maintenance cost

It’s faster to set up and then maintain from my point of view. That means I can pass on those savings to my customers.

By design, WordPress is very SEO friendly,

WordPress is written using standard compliance high-quality code and produces semantic markup which makes your site very attractive to search engines.


WordPress can be used in many different ways. It is open to endless possibilities.

WordPress is mature

It’s over ten years old. During the past decade, WordPress has been refined, tested, and enhanced. In the process, it has evolved into a world-class web publishing system.

WordPress is Open Source

Unlike other website building tools, it is open source and free from commercial restrictions and limitations. That means I can use the software any way I choose and host your website anywhere in the world.
