WHAT IS CMS?
CMS stands for content management system, which is software that enables single or multple users to publish content on their website.
In other words, once your beautiful website is completed you can easily login & update the latest photos, promotions, or even add pages yourself without paying a web designer every time! … probably shouldn’t tell you that LOL.
THEMES & PLUGINS?
Themes offer users a huge amount of options for fine-tuning & styling the appearance of their website with many useful built-in functions. There’s a large and growing directory of free & premium themes.
Plugins are add-ons if you like which offer specialized functions related to a site’s specific needs. The WordPress plugin directory includes hundreds of plugins—small pieces of code designed to perform specific tasks, allowing users to add features like booking forms, ecommerce, galleries, contact forms, social media & much more. Plugins can be activated or deactivated, uninstalled completely as when required. A vast amount of plugins are free but you do have to pay for the premium ones offering a more advanced service.
FLEXIBLE & ADAPTABLE
Although originally designed for blogging and general online publishing, WordPress also powers a wide range of sites with other purposes. WordPress is used to run complex sites for large multinational corporations, manage small businesses, and create personal blogs. WordPress sites can contain full-service ecommerce stores or host a social network group, or podcast. Whatever a company’s requirements, the core WordPress package plus a variety of basic and premium plugins that are suitable for your site.
Search engines like Google love WordPress!
It is written using high-quality code and produces semantic markup. This is why WordPress sites tend to rank higher than others in search engines.
WordPress is very SEO friendly straight out of the box. Various SEO plugins enable even novices to optimize their websites, although of course, we recommend you choose us to do this professionally!
So, this is where all the WordPress haters come out of the woodwork, declaring that it’s really unsecure! … absolute nonsense. Do you really think it would have so many users globally if everyone was getting hacked on a regular basis? …. exactly!
WordPress is perfectly stable & secure.
All you need to be aware of is when adding Plugins for additional functionality that they are regularly updated, as sometimes this can be a gateway into your website for hackers or malware software but let’s be clear virtually anything is vulnerable online.
