WordPress is the most popular and easiest way to create a website or blog. In fact, the software powers approximately 40% of all internet sites. Yes, more than one-fourth of the websites you visit use this platform.
The software is open-source and licenced under GPLv2, meaning anybody may use or change it for free. A content management system (CMS) is a platform that allows you to manage essential parts of your website, including content, without knowing any coding.
As a result, WordPress makes website creation accessible to everyone, even non-developers.
Once largely used to build blogs rather than regular websites, WordPress can now construct any sort of website owing to improvements in the core code and a huge ecosystem of plugins and themes.
Paired with WooCommerce (owned by the same company, Automaticc), for example, is the most common option to establish an eCommerce store!
