WordPress is an open source CMS with an incredible amount of templates, plugins and widgets to choose from. It began in 2005 as a blogging platform and was adapted to form a CMS, now used by millions of people across the globe, powering 24% of the internet. Approximately 50,000 new WordPress sites are created daily, from small businesses to home bloggers.
Although it does not provide the complexity of Joomla, for basic business websites, WordPress is a great choice, due to it's ease of use. In saying that there are large organisations who use WordPress to a limited extent, such as:
- New york Times
- General Motors
WordPress is a wise choice for you if you want a basic website, that is easy to manage without too much content and complexity required now or in the future.
