Today I would like to explain WordPress, one of the worlds most popular Content Management Systems, and one used by Victoria Web Developers.
In addition, I will explain the difference between using wordpress.com and installing WordPress on your own Server.
So let’s begin!
WordPress is a CMS (Content Management System). A CMS gives an author the ability to edit their website by logging into a password protected area.
There are literally hundreds of CMS choices on the market, with the leading contenders being WordPress, Drupal and Joomla.
Each CMS has its own special features and development obstacles.
At Muller Consulting, we’ve chosen WordPress due to its intuitive interface and network community-supported resources.
This provides us with a solid platform to develop any website with the highest quality coding practices in the shortest amount of time.
Each CMS utilizes a template system, allowing you to code, purchase or acquire a theme. The template is what your visitors see when viewing your website.
The differences between acquiring a template and coding one from scratch are night and day.
At Muller Consulting, we only code our templates from scratch based on a great deal of market research, conversion ethics, custom development requirements and rock star design skills.
Here’s where it gets confusing… There are two ways to implement WordPress. You can either signup for a free, limited feature website on wordpress.com, or you can download a development version from wordpress.org, and host it on your own website server.
WordPress is amazing. It’s easy to use for both managing and publishing content, it provides developer’s the necessary tools to build almost anything, and it’s the bee’s knees of website production.
