If you’re new to website development, or are looking for an easier way to manage your website’s content, using a content management system can help you get the job done. The majority of websites large and small on the web today are powered by a CMS, making it easier for the website owner to make updates to their site without the need to know HTML.
Deciding on which CMS to use for your new or existing website might seem tough, as there are so many systems out there and more being developed everyday. One of the most widely used CMS systems out there is WordPress, a free and open source software that was originally used as a blogging CMS. With such a massive community creating plugins, themes, and tutorials for WordPress, building an incredible website has never been easier.
WordPress is written in PHP and MYSQL, but don’t worry, you don’t need to know any PHP to begin using it. Most of the time PHP and MYSQL web hosting is cheaper than other types of hosting such as Windows hosting, and many reputable hosting companies offer “one click installs” of WordPress.
Don’t be fooled by thinking that WordPress is only for blogging, as it has evolved significantly over the years. You don’t need to be an expert web designer or programmer to build a unique and stunning website with WordPress. By searching the web, you will find countless free themes and plugins to fit your websites needs, and can be up and running in no time. The hits keep comin’: WordPress My Life
