6 Reasons Why WordPress Is Right For You

6 Reasons Why WordPress Is Right For You

WordPress

WordPress is one of the most well-known content management systems that hosts over 20% of websites worldwide.  And it’s free.  But those aren’t strong enough reasons to choose WordPress for your site.  Here are six important reasons for you to consider WordPress:

1.It’s open source
2.There’s a large, valuable community of support
3.End users can edit their own content
4.It’s secure if managed properly
5.It’s scalable
6.It’s future-proof

Open Source
If you need a customization of WordPress, there’s likely already a plugin to meet your needs.  And if not, it’s not hard to write a new one, and not expensive to hire Walsh Creative to write one.
Another advantage of open source is that there’s a huge community of developers who are contributing free and inexpensive software to extend WordPress.  Just think of what you want to do and search for a plugin you're likely to face an array of choices at little to no cost.

Professional Ecosystem
There is a much larger community of people who use WordPress to build websites and provide other services around WordPress.

Easy Editing
If you are a publisher or editor,  WordPress provides a simple-to-use editor that you can use to write your content right on the site, and insert images and videos as well.

Security
Unfortunately, the Internet is a rough place these days!  We all have security concerns, all of the time with our websites.  The WordPress core code has been remarkably secure since WordPress’s inception.
However, there have been and continue to be security weaknesses in plugins.  It’s important to keep plugins updated to the current version since fixes are often intended to close security holes.  In addition, use strong passwords.

Scalability
The New York Times, Microsoft and Facebook all run sites based on WordPress.  If your website has hosting with appropriate capacity and scalability to large loads, and you’re careful to test your plugins and themes for performance, there’s no reason that the biggest companies can’t use WordPress.

Future-Proof
WordPress has a commitment to backward compatibility so that they won’t break your site with a new release. When Google announced that it was suddenly important for our sites to be mobile-friendly, WordPress was ready to help their users.
