What is a WordPress website?
If you haven’t ever heard of WordPress, you certainly will very soon. With WordPress powering over 25% of all websites in the world it is quickly cornering the market on content management systems. If you are unfamiliar with a content management system it is a website that can be edited using a simple interface without a single line of code.
So why is a WordPress website so great? Aside from being a super slick platform for building great looking sites and allowing for easy updating, it is also the de facto champion when it comes to search engine optimization. Why you ask? With clean, semantically coded pages and a limitless supply of functionality through the use of third party plug-ins it is no wonder why search engines (and human beings) love WordPress so much.

If you have the need for a more scalable application with a user management system, that functionality is already built into the dashboard as well. If that’s not enough…how about the fact that you can even edit your WordPress website design on the fly with their intuitive, well-built app for both iOS and Android? Pretty cool, huh?
