Nowadays, in order to speed up the creation of websites, many people opt for WordPress. But what is WordPress really? To better understand it, we invite you to follow us.

What is WordPress?

WordPress is what we call a CMS (content management system), a software that allows you to create websites, manage their content, publish them and update them. You can go to this website.  It is an open source content management system accessible to all. Because it is free and easy to use, it can be used by anyone, even those who do not have extensive knowledge of web development. 

You can download this CMS for free, read the code, share it and modify it. WordPress, like Joomla and Drupal, is one of the CMS available for free. It allows you to manage all your content (pages and posts), including editing, categorizing, updating and deleting. Although WordPress is easy to use, few users are fully conversant with its features and optimization.

The difference between WordPress.com and WordPress.org

Apart from these few languages, it is also important to know the difference between WordPress.com and WordPress.org. The former, WordPress.com, is a paid commercial service. While it is easy to use, this service does not give you all the flexibility of self-hosted WordPress. The possibilities are limited when using the SAAS platform. 

The latter is free and open source. WordPress.org, also known as self-hosted WordPress, is the best option if you want to have your own website. You only need to rent a hosting and a domain name. You will be totally independent and free to develop without technical limitations.
