There are enormous possibilities to create a website. You can make the complete design in Photoshop and then develop the website using HTML, CSS, PHP and Javascript. You can also choose to use a Content Management System with a theme.

Both websites over the years I have made in a development with HTML, CSS and scripting languages ​​as well as developing websites with Content Management Systems. The preferred quickly went to the use of a CMS and ultimately the choice fell on WordPress. Now there is often

At the time of writing, about 17% of all website worldwide with WordPress. That a market share of over 54% in the area of ​​Content Management Systems. These are impressive figures and this can only be reason enough to choose for WordPress The advantages which are currently being referred to, are (in) is directly connected to the massive use of CMS.

WordPress is free for use

WordPress is an open-source system and may be used without it costing you money. You may ask any kind of personal or business website without paying a penny to WordPress. The threshold is low to try the system.

That you do not have to pay for does not mean that it does not cost anything. Especially if you are inexperienced in the use of a CMS takes the learning process and the development of a website a lot of time.

More choices for WordPress themes

Any WordPress installation is initially exactly the same. The differences in design and appearance of the site are brought about through the use of themes (also called templates). Supply in themes is huge and even here there are plenty of free options.

Themes now determine not only the look of your website. There are plenty of themes that add completely new functionality to WordPress. This allows you to develop virtually any type of website through WordPress.
WordPress is functionally easy to expand

Originates WordPress set up as a blog system to quickly and easily place articles The system has built-in capabilities to add additional functionalities

Plug-ins

The most common way is through the installation of plug-ins. Via the plug-in manager in WordPress allows you to search for plug-ins and install them in your WordPress website. The choice of plug-ins is huge and again there are plenty of free options available. There are two things you should consider:

- Plug-ins almost always affect the performance of your website.
- Bad plug-ins on your website security and performance can deteriorate.

Self programming

With PHP knowledge you will be able to add new features Do you have experience with programming in PHP you can add functionality via the WordPress editor. This allows you to script files of your theme

Please be aware of the fact that your changes will be lost at the time that the subject gets an update. This can overcome by using a framework in combination with a theme. This is also the solution sooned works and also very consciously choose. Here I come in a later article.
Search engines love WordPress

To index a website, a search engine:

- be able to go through (crawl) the Web site
- have permission to index the website
- understand where the individual web pages,

WordPress with all these points and takes a lot of worry off your hands for making a search engine friendly website. There are a number of plug-ins that help you with the search engine optimization of your website.

WordPress is easy to use

Due to the popularity of WordPress, most hosting providers have this CMS standard sitting in their host package. With one push of a button, WordPress can be installed on your domain and within a few minutes you can build your website.

As any Content Management System, WordPress has a learning curve. In the development of WordPress, however, take into account the layman. Adding or changing content is no more difficult than working with Microsoft Word. There are plug-ins available that make inserting media even easier in an article.

A side note I want to make. WordPress use almost always in combination with a template. The development of the homepage is often linked to the chosen template. A poorly developed template can affect the user.

WordPress is not only a blog system

This Content Management System has been developed as a platform for the development of weblogs. Easily maintain a website and adding content are still the main goals of WordPress. Sometimes hear or read you sometimes irreverent statements like: "WordPress is not more than a blogging platform".

The enormous popularity and open source nature of WordPress developers have pushed to get the most out of WordPress Now there are plenty of themes and plug-ins that allow you to make a full-fledged personal or business website For almost any kind of website is to find a theme. Do you have knowledge of HTML and PHP, there are virtually no limitations in the development for your website.

Wordpress is a great sales tool, that is, it makes it easier to sell our services to a business when we can tell them about Open Source solutions and how WP will serve them for years to come and will never become obsolete since thousands of developers around the world are continually improving it.

Along the same lines a potential customer can be assured that with a WordPress site they will be more likely in the future to find someone in their own home town that is a WP developer and won't have to pay an arm and a leg to modify the website as is usually the case when someone develops a site using a proprietary CMS.
