Technically, WordPress is an open source content management system. But simply explained, WP is the most popular and easiest way to create your own blog or website. Since you don’t need to have any programming knowledge to use WordPress, it’s accessible to everyone.

What is WordPress?

WordPress is the most used CMS (Content Management System) worldwide. Based on the technologies PHP, MySQL, JavaScript and HTML, WP is built on the typical LAMP stack (Linux, Apache, MySQL and PHP). The GPLv2 license allows not only the free use, but also the modification of the system.

The strength of WordPress is the ease of use and the almost unlimited expansion through plug-ins. Exactly these two circumstances have made the system grow extremely fast from the beginning. With so-called themes, the appearance of the blog can be completely changed with just one click. Moreover, there are thousands of free themes and just as many paid premium themes. Therefore, WP is suitable for almost all types of websites, such as:

  • Member sites
  • Blogs
  • private websites
  • Corporate websites
  • Online stores
  • Company websites
