Why WordPress?

Wordpress Development - NetServiceWordPress started in 2003 predominantly as a blogging platform and is now powering more than 26% of the web.

WordPress is no longer just a blogging platform. It has evolved throughout the years into a versatile content management system (CMS). While you can still use WordPress to create a simple blog, it also allows you to create fully functional websites and mobile applications.

WordPress is very flexible with the addition of themes and plugins. You can do a simple basic website or power a giant e-commerce store. It can do pretty much anything you need.

Themes are basically pre-designed templates giving you the opportunity to choose from a huge selection of styles to either use on your site or to get ideas from what others have already done.

Plugins are software add-ons that allow you to expand the functionality of WordPress. You can get anything from a simple spell checker up to a full e-commerce plugin allowing you to sell thousands of products all around the globe.

You might be thinking that WordPress is probably too complicated for a beginner like me, but that is where you are wrong. It is very simple to use and anyone can start using it. The reason large companies and small-time bloggers alike use WordPress is the simplicity, flexibility, and ease of use. Let’s not forget it is absolutely free and open source.

Here are some of the benefits of using WordPress as your platform of choice:

  • Easy to use. Write in a WYSIWYG editor, save drafts, and publish when you’re ready.
  • A huge community full of support, free templates, plugins, and additional add-ons and modifications for your website.
  • A dynamic theming system, change the look of your entire blog with one click.
  • Generate “SEO-friendly” permalinks with the click of a button.
  • Built-in RSS feed functionality.
  • Categorize and tag your blog posts.
  • Create static pages.
  • Integrated search box.
  • Automatic pinging to the top blog ping services.

The possibilities are literally endless…

NetService and WordPress

The reason we use WordPress is that every customer and every website needs something different, and this where WordPress excels. That and the management tools available to us and our clients makes this our platform of choice.

WordPress also gives us the ability for our customers to work directly with us and should the need arise they can take over the management of their own website. We have years of experience teaching WP Development and our customers love the ability to see what, how and why we do specific things on their websites.
