    What Is WordPress?


    Websites with content management systems (CMSs) are popular with small businesses that value versatility and appreciate simplicity. Examples of these CMS solutions are GhostJoomla and Drupal. Another CMS that happens to be one of the simplest and most versatile applications is WordPress.


    WordPress is a free and open-source CMS with plugin architecture and a system of templates. WordPress, like many CMS competitors, is template-based. The user chooses a theme, customizes it to personal preferences, and the website is ready to go. With many plug-ins and add-ons available, WordPress can create any site imaginable. This versatile software creates commercial, social media, blogs, and special interest websites around the world.


    The CMS application is a free download from Wordpress.org or it can come pre-installed from A2 Hosting (we also offer an easy 1-click setup via Softaculous if you prefer). With the latter method, the basic framework of a new WordPress site can be running in a few minutes. Manually downloaded installations can more intricate but a web administrator should be able to get your WordPress site up fairly quickly.


    WordPress is free so there are no additional monthly hosting costs except for custom themes, premium plug-ins, and so on, though any additional plug-ins or add-ons consume utility resources. For big photo galleries, shared media files, or large databases users should plan their budgets accordingly.


    Why WordPress?


    Users don't need much technical knowledge or expertise. WordPress offers search engine optimization-friendly uniform resource locators, resource description framework site summary feeds, post categories, sticky pages, and an interface suitable for nontechnical writers who want to contribute to the content and to queue, schedule, moderate, and protect posts and pages with passwords.


    Because WordPress uses templates, edits are quick and easy. The vast template library offers thousands of layout options and variations, and WordPress accommodates no end of adjustments, customizations, and tweaks. With only basic coding knowledge, users can adapt and modify themes for whatever they need.


    The WordPress plugin repository provides additional features that can enhance WordPress functionality. Most WordPress websites have at least a few plugins, and some have dozens that users can enable or disable as they wish.


    WordPress History


    WordPress is a mature blogging/CMS software solution getting its start in May 2003. The founders Matt Mullenweg and Mike Little launched WordPress as a fork b2/cafelog. It has since grown into the most used CMS worldwide largely in part to its pinpoint focus on on user experience and web standards.


    WordPress Advantages


    As the most used CMS in existence today, WordPress obviously comes loaded with a ton of advantages. Here are just a few you'll experience on this platform:


    • Most important WordPress components are 100% free providing an affordable experience
    • Easy to use control panel means an intuitive experience
    • 1-click setup means its easy to install and get started
    • eCommerce extensible
    • SEO ready


    WordPress is also often updating their software to include the best and newest settings. While this could be viewed as a disadvantage, we offer a 1-click update of WordPress when these updates become available to help keep your site secure!


    WordPress Installation


    WordPress is a zipped download from Wordpress.org or it comes pre-installed from A2 Hosting. With a one-click installer, the new WordPress site is ready for use within a few minutes. With manual installations a web administrator can activate the site relatively quickly.


    WordPress Costs


    The WordPress application is free. There are free themes and plugins to get started. Many startup businesses set up their websites with no expenses aside from their  hosting and domain costs.


    Premium WordPress add-ons incur fees, some for a few dollars or a donation. Others cost hundreds of dollars annually but are mostly for advanced users.


    A WordPress website, like any other, consumes bandwidth and may grow over time. The more content, media, and plugins the site has, the more likely resource needs will increase. You should plan and budget accordingly for new expenses as your account grows.. At first, shared hosting works well for most WordPress sites, but most users upgrade their plans when they outgrow their shared hosting accounts, especially ecommerce or business sites.


    Why I Should Avoid Free WordPress Hosting


    Most free hosting providers incorporate advertising into their services. They might require attribution links or banner ads on user sites or send lots marketing e-mails to sell paid hosting or some other upgrade.

    Limited support may actually be the biggest gamble users take with free hosting. Free WordPress hosts often time have a support forum for posting questions, but don't count on quick and helpful responses. With free hosting, support is a matter of luck, not service. Free hosting users get what they pay for.
