A powerful CMS Solution to power your business website
What Is WordPress
Website Design & Development?
WordPress is a popular choice for many small businesses and enterprise level companies – 23% of the web is reported to run on WordPress.
WordPress is classed as a CMS – a content management system. It was originally used many years ago as a simple platform for bloggers to post articles and content to the web, quickly and easily. As the internet has evolved and grown, so has WordPress as a system. It runs on a database backend with technologies called MySQL and PHP. You don’t need to know about these however as that more complicated backend, was able to be skipped by the website owner. This allowed developers and designers to control the complicated website elements, whilst also giving those without coding knowledge to update the website on the front end.
As a result of this relationship, developers began working to expand upon the simple blogging elements available to make it better for SEO, for more complicated functionality such as ecommerce and booking systems.
WordPress can now be used for a multitude of different businesses and reasons whilst being able to be updated and managed by those without the technical knowledge that would be required if the website was a standard HTML website for example.
