Why WordPress is the Best Blogging Platform?
Many of our clients are utilizing WordPress as a blogging platform. Creating a website with WordPress is something very easy to do. You do not need prior experience to accomplish this. With WebHostingPeople you can install your WordPress from our control panel with just a few clicks, and you can get it done. There are numerous CMS and Blogging softwares available, and in this tutorial, we can discuss why WordPress is the best among them. “Why WordPress is The Greatest Blogging Platform”?
1) It is open source and free to utilize!
Yes, it’s free, and you can use it without paying anything. It is also open source, which means you can make whatever customizations and edits you desire, and the source code is available for you. To help you understand this better, let me borrow a paragraph from the official WordPress website.
“WordPress is an Open Source project, which means there are hundreds of people all around the world working on it. (More than most commercial platforms.) It also means you are free to use it for anything from your recipe site to a Fortune 500 website without paying anyone a license fee and a lot of other important freedoms.”
So with WordPress, you can do anything, and the possibilities are limitless.
2) Very easy to install
As mentioned in the first paragraph, WordPress is something very easy to install. If you are a customer with WebHostingPeople, you can install WordPress with just a few clicks from our control panel. You do not need prior hosting or server management experience to install WordPress. However, if you have any doubts or concerns about WordPress installation, you can reach our support anytime, and we can assist you with it.
3) Easy to manage
Have you ever accessed the admin panel of WordPress? If you haven’t, then please do. Here is a link to Softaculous Demo WordPress website: https://demos1.softaculous.com/WordPress/wp-admin. The username is “admin” and password is “go”. If you access the admin panel, you will understand how easy it is to manage WordPress. You do not need to know HTML or PHP. You can do everything from the control panel itself. You can change themes, upgrade WordPress, install plugins, create users, and everything.
4) WordPress is improving day by day
As you may already know, WordPress is an Open Source project. Thousands of people across the globe are working on it. So with all this support, WordPress is constantly improving. New features, new plugins, themes, and capabilities are being added to WordPress every day. Suppose PHP or MySQL releases a new version. Most probably, WordPress will have these latest PHP or MySQL version support in their next release. Which means WordPress will have the latest features and security.
5) WordPress has Built-In SEO
If you already know what SEO is and how important it is for your website, you will understand how difficult it is to make a basic HTML website SEO-friendly. But that is not the case with WordPress. WordPress has Built-In SEO. Which means you do not need to do any extra work to make your WordPress website SEO-friendly.
If you need more SEO customization options and features, you can install additional SEO plugins like Yoast SEO: https://wordpress.org/plugins/wordpress-seo, which have many additional SEO options.
6) Great Support Community
If you are having an issue or getting an error with WordPress, then do not worry. WordPress has a huge support community. All you need to do is just Google the error you are getting, and you can find solutions for almost everything in their support forum. You can also search directly on their forum: https://wordpress.org/support.
If that didn’t solve the issues or if you do not know how to apply the fixes, then please contact our support department, and we will investigate it for you.
7) WordPress is Mobile-Friendly
If you are creating a website, make sure it is mobile-friendly, and I hope you know why and how important that is. It’s because more than half of the world now accesses the World Wide Web using their mobile devices. Most of us are lazy enough to turn on a system, wait for it to boot, and click on the browser to access a webpage when we can access the same using our cellphones within seconds. If it’s just plain HTML, then it’s very difficult to make it mobile-friendly. Also, do you know that if your website is not SEO-friendly, then that can affect your Google SEO ranking: https://support.google.com/adsense/answer/6196932?hl=en?
But again, that is not the case with WordPress. WordPress is 100% mobile-friendly, and you do not need any other code level modifications.
