Wordpress is is one of the biggest names in blog-publishing and website publishing worldwide. In fact, according WordPress itself, 30 percent of all websites online use the platform – that’s roughly 500 million websites. We think that WordPress is a great choice for bloggers, with some downsides for regular websites.
Now, we should be clear and say that our review is looking at WordPress.com, rather than WordPress.org – they sound similar, but are quite different in the way they approach website development. We explain more in our section WordPress.com vs WordPress.org.
WordPress.com is great if you want to build a website or blog quickly and easily with minimal development, but want to keep your options open when it comes to scaling and improving your site. From here on out, we’re going to call WordPress.com ‘Wordpress’.
