WordPress is a free content management system used to build websites and blogs. It’s extremely versatile and can be used to create very simple sites through to beautiful portfolio websites, websites for business, websites with multiple user log-ins, and it’s ideal for website owners who want to update their own site, but don’t have the skills to design a website themselves.
There are two options for using WordPress. Firstly, you can use one of WordPress’ default templates and host your website at WordPress. This option makes it very easy for anyone to quickly and easily create a website or blog, however, you are limited to templates that many other people are using, and your domain or website address will be: mysitename.wordpress.com – not the most professional solution if you’re launching a business.
The second option is to install WordPress on your own domain and build a custom WordPress design. This is where MAXIMA Graphics can help you.
Advantages of using WordPress
Once WordPress is installed, the backend control panel is very simple to use. To update and edit a WordPress site you don’t need to have any knowledge of HTML, simply log-in to the online control panel where you can access all existing content and easily edit and add new pages.
Because WordPress is open source software there are many developers contributing to the improvement of the software and adding functionality by creating plug-ins. There are literally thousands of plug-ins which can add functionality to your site.
WordPress is search engine friendly – it gives you full control of page title tags, meta descriptions and the structure of your page URLs. WordPress is state-of-the-art web publishing software.
