WordPress has been around since 2003 and in that time its become known as one of the easiest and most powerful content management systems on the planet. This small piece of open source website software actually powers 37.8% of website on the internet today, and it’s the same for the WordPress shop counterpart because Woocommerce powers 9% of all online stores
WordPress powers over 14% of the top 100 websites! Forbes, Mashable, The New York Times, Samsung, PlayStation, and Coca-Cola all use wordpress as a base for their websites.
Because the software is open source it means that there are constant automatic security updates ensuring your site is secure and protected against hackers.
WordPress has one of the most active plugin communities on the internet with entire websites created to market them. As it stands there are over 54,000 active plugins available which means when it comes to functionality, it’s pretty much limitless.
When AnyGrey IT Solutions were looking for an all in one solution we tried over 20 different pieces of software to build websites in and none came close to wordpress for end user ease of use, overall management, site performance and its ability to scale. We’ve even built a social media site for a client with wordpress!
So why do we use wordpress? Simple, because we trust it and our clients will truly benefit not only in your website’s first few months but for years to come.
