WordPress CMS Website Programming Services

What is WordPress CMS?

WordPress is a free and open-source content management system (CMS) based on PHP and MySQL. Features include a plugin architecture and a template system. It is most associated with blogging, but supports other types of web content including more traditional mailing lists and forums, media galleries, and online stores. Used by more than 60 million websites, including 30.6% of the top 10 million websites as of April 2018, WordPress is the most popular website management system in use. WordPress has also been used for other application domains such as pervasive display systems (PDS).

WHY PROGRAM YOUR WEBSITE IN WORDPRESS?

1. The most popular CMS in the world

WordPress holds the largest CMS market share by far, and currently accounts for over a quarter of all websites. As a result, many users are already familiar with the WordPress CMS, requiring less staff training when building a new site.

2. Open Source with room for expansion

WordPress can be self-hosted, so there are no costs associated with downloading, installing, and upgrading. There are more than 50,000 WordPress plugins (often free), such as slideshows, contact forms, SEO optimization, etc.

For inspiration, check out 12 Plugins our Dev Team loves. Fresh Consulting licenses the premium plugins we deploy on websites, such as WordPress video manuals and easy website backup and restore functions, at no additional cost to you.

3. Highly customizable for great flexibility

WordPress is popular because it meets the demands of many users with its flexible framework, which allows designers and developers to create and modify layouts and applications. Coupled with user-generated extensions, websites are no longer limited by enterprise extensions.

Our team has experience extending WordPress functionality, as well as incorporating a wide range of plugins, to meet our clients’ unique demands.

4. Designed for anyone, not just developers

Before WordPress became a popular CMS for website development, it was developed for non-tech savvy bloggers. So, most of the user-interface components are easy to use, and there are written and recorded manuals available for easily learning how to use WordPress functions. Our team handles all the complexities of setting up and customizing your website; all you have to do is to update the content on pages, posts, widgets, etc.

One of the premium plugins we provide to our clients offers both written and video user manuals for WordPress to facilitate on-boarding with the CMS.

5. Lower setup and maintenance costs

According to DeviousMedia, WordPress incurs fewer setup, customization, and maintenance costs in comparison to other Open Source CMS like Drupal and Joomla. Additionally, it is relatively easier to find WordPress designers and developers if more customization or development is necessary in the future. You don’t get locked down by a static website or proprietary CMS that is costly to tweak after initial development.
