The Top Five Reasons for Using WordPress

Why do you select Wordpress is a popular query while discussing Content Management Systems. And the reason is that WordPress is a free open source alternative that is incredibly adaptable and made for everyone, not just programmers.

1. Free + Open Source

It is free to use WordPress.org and WordPress.com. You could read this post to discover the differences between the two.

The largest open source platform in the world, Wordpress has a huge community supporting it. It is made with everyone in mind, placing a strong emphasis on usability, performance, security, and accessibility. There are more than 50,000,000 plugins available, which can be utilized to build almost anything.

2. Designed for Everyone

Wordpress's backend user interface has significantly improved over the years, making even non-techies find it to be very easy to use. Although Squarespace is frequently compared to Wordpress as having a simpler user interface, it would take the same amount of time to become familiar with Squarespace once everything has been set up and a dashboard has been created just for you.

3. Highly Customizable

The reason the adaptable Wordpress framework is so well-liked is that it satisfies the needs of a sizable number of creative users. These are just a few of the websites that platform allows you to create:

  • Blogs
  • Personal websites for self-promotion
  • Shopping Stores
  • Portfolios
  • Galleries
  • Forums
  • Membership Sites
  • eLearning modules
  • Auction and coupon sites
  • Non-profit websites for collecting donations
  • Chatrooms
  • Rating Website
  • Arcades

4. Great SEO Capabilities

SEO for WordPress Websites
WordPress is renowned for having SEO features built in. For all of your pages and posts, it automatically creates meta tags and title descriptions. A wide range of potent plugins also offer more sophisticated functions.

5. Full Control

The best thing about Wordpress is that you actually own and have total control over your website. For constructing websites, competitors like Squarespace, WIX, Joomla, Shopify, Magento, and Weebly are fine, but the non-open source ones restrict your control and the capabilities they give in their packages.

Usually, you are forced to use the eCommerce functionality that is already there and the hosting that is offered. Last but not least, you do not officially have complete ownership of your website and its contents. Modifying the code could be difficult, if it is even feasible. These businesses are renting the website to you. Additionally, your website is often locked, so switching to another platform would not be an option if you decided to do so. The key one for our team is that WordPress equals freedom!
