What are the reasons why WordPress is a good choice, when selecting a CMS with which to build your sites.
In recent years, the launches of new websites have increased exponentially. As a matter of fact, technology has evolved so much that it is now very easy to build a website from scratch, even without particular skills in web design and programming, and to adapt it to your tastes and content. All this is possible with the WordPress platform, the best open source CMS (Content Management System) available.
For a user, the choice is vast today. Let's try to make some clarity in the jungle of CMS and understand why WordPress is the best tool to create a website. The most popular CMS include Drupal, Open CMS and Joomla. These platforms have many advantages, but none of them offers the user the possibility to create a high-performance, professional-looking website with such simplicity.
The advantages of WordPress as a CMS
Let's see what advantages the WordPress platform offers:
- quick and easy to install
It is easy to install and configure, sometimes just a single click is enough, as many hostings allow the user to simply fill the necessary fields in a single tab.
You no longer need to be a blogger to use WordPress: with this CMS you can create any type of website, from e-commerce to news portals to corporate pages. And you will be able to add new content every day, to update pages and add new products, always without having to resort to programming.
- simple maintenance
The maintenance of a website is very important, and we should never underestimate it. WordPress makes this step much easier because the only action you will have to do is updating the CMS, and this will ensure constant security and efficiency. When the update is available WordPress will warn you and, in the back-end, with a simple click you will keep your website always operating at its best.
- SEO for everyone
A user can make the pages of their website SEO friendly in minutes, and in a very simple way, without having to spend hours doing research. This means that your site will be competitive in search engines in very few steps, saving you a lot of time.
- intuitive and within everyone's reach
Even the less experienced can easily orient themselves in the creation of a site, thanks to the visual editors that give everyone the opportunity to express their creativity building attractive, never trivial pages.
- a plug-in for your every need
WordPress plug-ins are literally thousands and most of them are free, responding to the needs of the vast majority of users (99.9%). In addition, they are easy and fast to install.
As you have seen, the advantages of WordPress are many and the list could be much longer. However, you should always keep one thing in mind when creating a website: security. What is the best way to protect a website? One that I recommend is to use a virtual private network or VPN, which will protect your private web traffic from interception, interference and censorship.
With all these tools available, now you are ready to start creating your own website!
