WordPress originally started as a blogging tool. Over the years it has evolved into a powerful website builder and content management system (CMS), that many companies use to power their websites.
Some of these companies include Time Magazine, Facebook, The New Yorker, Sony, Disney, Target, and The New York Times. Our website here at Created WIth Divi runs on WordPress and was built using the Divi Theme. It is estimated that 42% of the web is built on WordPress.
WordPress can be used to create anything from a blog to a professional website, or an eCommerce store. It is easy to customize with themes and plugins. It can handle various forms of media, including images, audio, video files, and supports oEmbed websites, which allow you to embed YouTube videos, Instagram photos, Tweets, and Soundcloud audio.
It is SEO-friendly, secure, and easy to manage, once you become familiar with the platform. The best part is that it’s free and can be used with any hosting provider you choose.
If you need a website for any reason, WordPress is a great choice.
