WordPress is the most popular Content Management System in the world, and powers 4.5% of the ENTIRE internet. There are 17 blog posts published on WordPress sites every second of every day.
High Profile Brands Using WordPress include CNN, The Wall Street Journal, Forbes, Mashable, The Rolling Stones, Vogue, and NASA.
Basically WordPress is a kind of database built with a few coding languages: PHP makes it function on the backend, while HTML and CSS determine how it presents on the front end. The advantage of building a site with a database is that you can update one part of it and it changes throughout the site all at once.
For example, you can add a new page to the navigation menu in the WP Admin panel, which updates the database – and all the pages accordingly. You don’t have to go through the whole site and update each page individually as you would on a static HTML website.
So, whether you want to create a blog, a basic website for a local business, or a huge online store selling thousands of products, you can do it with WordPress.
Part of the popularity of WordPress is that WordPress lets you extend its functionality through the use of "plugins", which are programs you can run on your database. There are a wide array of both free and pay-for-use plugins available that can do virtually anything you might need your site to do without having to write code from scratch.
If you happen to know PHP, you can further customize any plugin you want to do exactly what you need it to do. Or, hire a programmer who knows PHP to do it for you if you don't.
Another reason WordPress is so popular is that WordPress Sites are easy to manage. Because WordPress has been around since 2003, there is a huge online community and extensive documentation available. Almost any question or problem you might run into has usually been experienced and resolved by someone else already.
