What is Wordpress

If you have ever thought about creating a blog for your company or to launch a startup, you will have heard of WordPress, one of the most famous Content Management Systems (CMS) to create and manage websites.

This web app offers a user interface to design your side and publish an update its content, without having to no programming language or having other IT skills (HTML, CSS etc.). You can choose the modifiable templates from a library of free themes or from various online stores which offer more professional paid options. WordPress manages text, links, images, video, audio and many other elements through added functions, the so-called plugins.

As with many other CMSs, Wordpress is affordable, flexible and full of options, but often the loading speed of the pages is insufficient and in the long-term correct maintenance can become complicated due to updates.
