As you all knows, WordPress is one of the most popular PHP based open-source CMS (Content Management System) with over million of installations used by more than 40% of top 10 million websites as of March 2021.

WordPress was first released on May 27, 2003 by an American developer and English developer. You can use WordPress either as an Internet Hosting Service (WordPress.com) or as a Software Package (WordPress.org).

WordPress, the premier free open-source blogging utility, has gone through several upgrades in its life. Today it’s one of the most popular blogging tools on the Internet; it’s easy to use, powerful, and very versatile.

About CMS –

A Web CMS is a Content Management System software used for managing content for the internet.

The software handles web content (text, video, links, and so on.) for distribution on an internet web server. Usually the software provides various online tools and libraries where users with little or no knowledge of programming languages can create and manage web content.

Management of the software is generally done through an internet browser, but some systems may be modified in various other ways.

A Web Content Management System (CMS) varies from website Builders like Godaddy Website Builder or Wix or Macromedia Dreamweaver because a CMS allows non-technical users to create changes to an current website with little or no educating.

Website building tools like FrontPage and Dreamweaver require more technological knowledge and training typically. A CMS is an user friendly device that gives authorized users the capability to manage a website.

WordPress CMS Features:

  • SEO-friendly URLs
  • Integrated and online help, including discussion boards and forums
  • Group-based permission systems (multi-user role based)
  • Full template support and easy to customize templates (100s of free templates)
  • Easy wizard-based install (easy to configure)
  • Secured Admin panel with multiple language support

However, WordPress CMS is not for everyone as it also comes with some disadvantages. There are WordPress alternatives that you can use to build your website.

Well, there can be plenty of reasons for not to choose WordPress as a perfect CMS:

  • WordPress isn’t an all-in-one solution, especially once you start adding plugins to get your desired functionality.
