What is WordPress?

Wordpress is an open-source publishing platform popular with bloggers and a content management system. The appearance of a Wordpress site and many of its functions are managed through themes, and further customizable through altering code, though altering code is not required; templates and plugins to expand its capabilities are plentiful. Wordpress features integrated link management, and a search-engine friendly permalink structure. WordPress now allows multiple blogs to exist within one installation. Websites may host their own blogging communities, controlling and moderating content from a single dashboard.

Wordpress is popular due to its simplicity and modifiability. Furthermore implementing Wordpress costs only time. Two paid versions exist. The $99 premium plan allows a user an ad free custom domain with 13GB of space and advanced customization. The $299 Business plan allows unlimited space and supports eCommerce as well.

I was hired as a web developer with extensive experience to create a professional marketing and advertising platform (website) using WordPress. We required a platform similar to WordPress that would support several integrations, allow for flexibility, and yet offer frontend user-friendly usage. In order to improve the platform (website) we wanted to build, we also wanted an open source platform that allows backend coding customization. Finally, we needed a platform that would make it simple for us to fix the website SEO integration in accordance with our SEO requirements and for faster business growth.

One of the key reasons we chose to introduce WordPress was because of its ease of maintenance. We had fantastic success with WordPress because it was able to fix our problems and make our thoughts clear as we started the project.

I have been using WordPress for quite some time and WordPress is the best way to build a professional website, Its ease of use when I am integrating my woo-commerce into my website makes it really beginner friendly and this platform is open source software that we can use/edit the way we want and that's the best thing of it, and the code can be downloaded from WordPress.org.

As a developer WordPress saves me 80% development time. This Php-based CRM helps me to add custom design in the website very easily. WordPress is handy and easy to manage, even a person who doesn't have any coding experience can use WordPress. Ultimately WordPress helps us to manage our organization's website dynamically.

As of today Jan 29, 2022, I have used WordPress (.com, not .org) as my hosting platform for my website since 2016. I am paid up for the 1-year business plan, and it doesn't expire till May of 2022. I noticed the WordPress app logo on my phone changed from bright blue to dull blue a couple of days ago, but I didn't think much about it until I went to my website. I believe WordPress took it upon themselves to change my Business Plan to the "free" plan and now all my products in my eCommerce shop are gone! During my experience, the Hestia Lite theme was removed and, in my opinion, everything on my website has changed and it looks awful! I put over a year of work and hundreds of hours getting my website to look beautiful and now, I feel like all of that is lost! To my understanding, free plans don't have access to instant WordPress chat with technical support, so I have to email them and they don't reply on weekends so I believe this will take weeks to resolve. Personally, I am livid and disgusted with WordPress! I ADVISE YOU NOT TO USE WORDPRESS.COM! IN MY OPINION, USE ANOTHER WEB HOSTING SITE!

WordPress allows creatives who know little to no code the ability to create stunning websites. In our case, [we have] two sites running simultaneously. Having WordPress was a huge money saver as we were able to build both sites from the ground up and customize both to meet our needs.

We use WordPress for our main website. Our blog is a huge part of our content and communications efforts and there is no better platform for hosting a blog than WordPress. Another reason is its ease of use and its compatibility with the rest of the marketing tools that we use. It's easy to maintain and to scale. And anything can be done pretty fast.

I have been using WordPress since 2013. I started with the basic blog website and till now I have delivered many Websites based on WordPress for e-commerce and other fields. It's very easy to set up and the plugin library is amazing, everything can be done in a few steps if anyone has the working knowledge. The only drawback is frequent updates and management of the plugins.

I use WordPress to create a stunning and interactive website for my business and the clients who hire me to build them a website. I've used it in the past to build e-commerce websites, intranet sites for companies, blogs, and many other types of websites. WordPress is a simple solution to create stunning websites in minutes.

We are a boutique real estate firm that seeks to expand our digital presence and use the internet to drive leads, conversions and new clients to our website.

We are currently using WordPress to host our corporate blog and website. It is primarily used by the marketing department to push out and update content. It helps us host our content all in one centralized location while also creating a pipeline of content to be pushed out across different content pillars.

As a start up, we boot-strapped much of our launch and did a lot of things ourselves. We developed our first website using WordPress and it was easy to use for a non-webmaster/designer. Since then we've had our site professionally designed and they also use WordPress. It's a great platform for both beginners and professionals.

When I had a question with the development of a corporate website, we had 3 ways - to do it ourselves from scratch, to outsource it, to do it on ready-made CMS. Outsourcing for a young start-up is expensive and to make from a scratch also was not a variant, since we have already made our main product from scratch.
When choosing a CMS, I had several options, but I settled on WordPress and did not regret it later.
We bought a ready-made template that was very suitable for us and in days, not months, filled it with content and changed it a little visually.
The result is simply stunning and we like it.

First of all, it is free. With WordPress, you don't need to know to code. It has lots of plugins and themes that make your work easier. If you choose the right tool, you can make some great websites. We were using it for our internal websites. Also, we're doing WordPress websites for customers, too. Our IT team was using it and was glad to use it.

We use WordPress to manage our agency's website, as well as to oversee numerous client web pages. With client accounts, we are responsible for uploading new content. In some cases, we are also responsible for building new pages for their existing websites. For our agency, we use WordPress to keep our blog page regularly updated, present case studies detailing client success stories, add downloadable content like e-books, and showcase our people and their areas of expertise. WordPress helps us manage three different agency websites for the US, Europe, and Australia in one simple-to-use interface. It also enables our clients to build their reputations as thought leaders by posting useful content for their customers.

I use WordPress to manage our website. I have it integrated with HubSpot and Mailchimp for mailing list signups, contact forms and chats. I've been using it for about 5 year or so with my current company. I found out about WordPress via our website host.

Our company uses WordPress within multiple teams and for multiple purposes. My team has utilized it as a platform to host our internal company website. We use it to give employees easy access to forms (like PTO requests, business card requests, travel requests, etc.), documents, and media (e.g. if we have an all-company meeting, we will post the recording on our WordPress website). We also use the platform within our tech team and they have built a proprietary solution that we provide to our clients.

WordPress is simply one of the best and easiest content management systems to use. It is simple enough for first-time users to learn, yet robust enough for experienced users to get the full functionality out of a CMS if needed. It's my platform of choice when putting up a website and there is no lack of developers, themes, and plugins to help you get stuff done. When compared to other platforms, this can't be beaten for its functionality, freedom, and speed. What is solves is the ability to put up a good quality website at a low cost and with tons of functionality.

I am a web designer that exclusively designs and develops websites using WordPress. It's a free/open source with a great big community so I know that I have both updates that I need for security as well as support. WordPress is very easy to use and the best thing about it is that it's really like a blank slate for whatever you want to do.

For the first four years of my freelancing career, I built custom WordPress websites for small business clients. The highly-flexible platform allowed me to customize both the front and back end of my clients' websites to meet their exact specifications. When they needed new functionality, it was often as simple as installing a free plugin.
