A Simple Way to Build Complex Websites

Whether you’re building a new website or enhancing an existing one, WordPress is the way to go.

What is WordPress (WP)?

WordPress is a free, open-source content management system (CMS) and powers over 30% of active websites on the Internet. It’s a software package that comes in two versions.

With WordPress.org, you can download and install the package on your own server. By self-hosting your website, you’ll have complete control over your site and access to third-party themes and plugins. WordPress.com is a service that offers fully-hosted websites that run on WordPress.

Why Build a Self-Hosted Website on WordPress?

Do-it-yourself website builders like Squarespace, Weebly, or even WordPress.com are easy to use and cheap but inadequate for building a professional website. With a limited selection of features, website builders are less powerful. Templates are designed to look generic for mass appeal. Unstructured and messy code is commonplace, resulting in slow load times and poor SEO.

Hiring a developer to code a fully-custom website has its own drawbacks. Even if you manage to find a skilled developer, custom-built websites cost more and take longer to develop.
