There are a great variety of free content management systems (CMS) available, of which WordPress is one of the most popular. It powers 25 to 30% of websites worldwide. If you wish to have a website quickly and at a modest price, WordPress can be a good choice.
Owners of smaller businesses may consider opting for WordPress for its advantages in terms of quick results and reasonable price. Another positive feature is that it was originally designed as a blog engine, so its content management system is highly developed. If you intend to upload new content and blog posts on a regular basis, it can be an excellent choice.
Since it is an open source system, the core code of the software is visible and accessible to anyone. This brings potential security risks, so your website will need to be frequently updated and maintained, even shortly after it has been launched and on a regular basis. During development only high quality extensions from a reliable source should be used. In the majority of cases hacks are due to insecure plugins.
A starter WordPress website is available from £400. Additional fees may apply, such as stock photos, bespoke design work and logo design.
