Why You Should Use a WordPress Website

Wordpress AucklandWordPress development has come along way over the last 5 years.

Initially created in 2003, WordPress websites make up about 19% of all websites online, which puts it at being the most popular CMS (Content Management System) in the world by more than double.

The beauty of WordPress is that it has a large community of people who are constantly building functionality (plugins) and themes enabling end users to more efficiently and effectively build and run their sites and generate business.

You Own Your Website

Unlike some other web design companies who use a proprietary CMSs which lock you into using them, WordPress is open source meaning that the back end engine of the site is essentially free and you own it. The last thing you want is to be locked into one company. If they close down you say goodbye to your website, if they don’t support you then you’re up the creek.

Also because of the large community purchasing plugins and adding functionality to your website can be a lot more cost effective. There are many developers who have already built galleries, sliders, member areas etc that would cost many thousands to build from scratch, but can now be purchased for a few hundred dollars or less.

Simple to Update

WordPress websites are simple to update and add content to so they can grow with your business.
