About WordPress

What is WordPress?

WordPress is open-source software built initially for blogs. The benefits include a blog, content management system, and plugins that increase functionality. The most significant advantage is that no coding experience is needed.

 WordPress.org vs. WordPress.com

The primary difference between the two is that WordPress.com is a managed hosting model while WordPress.org is not. In other words, if you go to WordPress.com, everything will be packaged for you. The hosting will be included in that package. With WordPress.org, you can download the software from a hosting company of your choice. Almost all hosting companies offer WordPress as a free install. You can download any themes and add the plugins you wish. It would be safe to say that WordPress.org gives you more freedom of choice.

What can I build with WordPress?
Just about anything. Gaze at the following list of possibilities.

About WordPress

Which one is right for you?
It depends on your knowledge of WordPress, plugins, and hosting services. If you are new to WordPress or don’t have time to learn it, you may want to go with WordPress.com. It has more of a packaged feel and tools ready to go.

Of course, if you are a WordPress developer with vast experience, you would go with WordPress.org. You may want to become more educated in WordPress and all the plugins. The best way to learn is to immerse yourself in WordPress. 

 What is Next

WordPress is continuously evolving to address the needs of the millions of web publishers around the world. The direction of WordPress directly depends on the needs of users. We can safely assume that it will continue to empower people around the world to create wonderful web spaces.
