Wordpress is a Content Management System

WordPress

WordPress is a free and open-source content management system (CMS) built with PHP and mySQL, reportedly the most popular on the Web.

At Outsourcify, we are experts in developing custom WordPress themes.

WordPress is now powering 30% of all websites worldwide

All websites are built with the same technologies, those that run in the browser, which are HTML and CSS, the skeleton and styling of web pages. Many websites are actually static and directly built with those, other are dynamic and allow users to update their content through an admin panel, the content being saved in a database.

WordPress offers such an admin panel, it is a free and open-source content management system (CMS) based on the PHP programming language and MySQL database. The technologies it uses are simple and broadly available on most web servers, which makes it easy to install pretty much anywhere on the internet.

To paraphrase (supposedly) Churchill, though, “WordPress is the worst bogging system… except for all the others”, and there are reasons why WordPress is now powering 30% of all websites. and is reportedly the most popular website management or blogging system in use on the Web today, supporting more than 60 million websites.

A good choice for corporate websites

At Outsourcify, we tend to think they are some cases when it makes sense to use WordPress and sometimes it’s better to use an alternative solution, most likely a custom developed web application. WordPress is a good choice when it at the same time simplifies the development of the website and the eases its update by its final users. The main reason to use WordPress is it’s user friendly admin panel that allows users to add and edit content easily, especially it’s well conceived Media Library.

Another advantage is its notoriety which implies a large team that constantly improves WordPress with bug fixes, security updates and new features, a very large community of developers that creates plugins which cover countless features, and a large availability of great hosting options.
