What is WordPress?

WordPress is a very powerful, free and open source blogging platform and content management system. As of today, it powers over 68 Million active web sites.

It’s very customisable and can be extended to build pretty much anything from a simple blog to a shopping solution to even a social network. So what is WordPress to you (as a person looking to build a web site)? It’s most likely the best base to build your new web site on.

WordPress is a lot of bang for your buck

The plugin architecture baked into the system means that a huge wealth of features can be easily plugged in to the system quickly and at a relatively low cost. Very few features that your new site may require are likely to be unique and the odds are that it’s been done before and there’s probably a plugin for it. From galleries to contact forms, we as developers can save time and save you money by using plugins.

WordPress is simplicity
