Why use WordPress?

We recommend WordPress as it the most popular CMS system worldwide.

There are over 75 million websites worldwide (2017, source whoishostingthis WordPress Stats) using it. So it must be good!

It is the world’s largest open-source Content Management System (CMS) and forms part of the Open-Source Initiative project. This guarantees it is reliable, secure, versatile and easy to use. WordPress is continually being enhanced to support new technologies, like smartphones and browsers. It has to be to keep 70 million businesses up to date!

Many of our customers like it because there is no licence charge to use the software.

By adopting the most widely-used open-source CMS product you can be assured there’s no risk to your business compared to a proprietary product from a software company.

Why is there no licence fee?

WordPress is an open-source project managed by the Open-Source Initiative (OSI) which does not charge a licence fee. The OSI is a not-for-profit corporation with global scope formed to educate and advocate the benefits of open-source solutions. A zero charge CMS licence will save you typically 20% or more in licence fees each year.

Is it easy to use?

Give it a try! Over 75 million others have.

It is the most robust and feature-packed platform we’ve ever tried, and we’ve reviewed and installed many Content Management Systems looking for the perfect package for our clients. It is not only easy to use but also, very user-friendly.
