What is WordPress?
“WordPress is web software you can use to create a beautiful website,
blog, or app. We like to say that WordPress is both free and priceless at
the same time.” – WordPress.org
In other words, WordPress is software that makes it incredibly easy
for anyone to build and manage their own website. While it started as
simple blogging software, WordPress is now a full content management
system (CMS), allowing you to build virtually any type of website on it –
blogs, eCommerce sites, portfolios, business sites, anything.
The best part about WordPress, though, is that everything is completely
open source. This means that there are people all over the world who
contribute to it, and that you can use it for free!
