WordPress is a free and open-source content management system that can be used to create fully customizable websites to meet the needs of your business. WordPress has been in development since 2003. The platform is based on PHP and MySQL and the functionality of the core installation can be expanded with the incorporation of both template files, widgets and plugins, of which there are thousands to choose from.


WordPress started out as a platform for blogging, but quickly evolved into a great content management system for all types of websites, giving you the ability to make changes to your website yourself without the need for an in-house developer. The WordPress platform now accounts for almost 25% of all websites.
