Build Your Own Website Easily With WordPress 1

You don’t need to spend a fortune getting a website developed for you. You can do it yourself, even if you have never had any experience. Thankfully, there is a secret – WordPress. WordPress is a free system that streamlines and simplifies the process of web development and, as you will find out, can still be flexible enough for just about any website imaginable.

What Does WordPress Do Besides Blogging?

Many people have heard of WordPress but do not understand the system’s full capabilities. Most people think that WordPress is a platform for blogging when, in fact, it is far more than that.

Today, WordPress has grown into what would be called a content management system or CMS. A CMS is a tool to store all the information required for your website and present it to your visitors professionally and organizationallyized. Other content management systems include Joomla and Drupal, but the reality is that WordPress is the easiest to understand, the easiest to work with, and the most easily adaptable.

Let’s look at – in simple terms – how exactly WordPress works once it is installed:

  • You access a convenient WYSIWYG (What You See Is What You Get) interface to work with all of the content on your website securely
  • You can create new web pages in a variety of formats
  • The content that you create is stored in a database
  • You can use the same interface to edit your content in the database
  • When visitors access your website, the information in the database is presented in a website layout. You can change this layout anytime; your content will automatically adopt the right look.

In technical terms, WordPress is pretty advanced. This advanced functionality has been used in many exciting ways in the nine years since the platform was launched.
