Simplicity and ease of use key benefits of WordPress

09/19/2012 | Internet hosting |

If you're looking to build a website, there are a range of online tools available to help you create a well-designed, content-rich page with a minimum of hassle. One of the most popular of these for individuals on a budget is the open-source WordPress platform, which offers a great range of features and is free to use.

While you may know it primarily as a blogging platform, it is easy to make a fully-fledged website through the service without any capital outlay, while premium upgrades can add features such as customised designs, the ability to embed videos and remove ads. Although a default blog setup will show the latest updates at the top of a page, users also have the option of setting up a static home page to get the look of a traditional website. You can then add as many additional pages as you like, such as information and contact sections.

The dashboard is available in over 50 languages, while owners can invite friends or co-workers to contribute to the site and choose whether to keep the site private or publish it for the entire world to see. But despite what you might assume, the platform is not just for individuals and small firms. Did you know, for example, that some of the world's most popular sites are hosted via WordPress, including Time, CNN and TechCrunch?


The site's owner Automattic also recently revealed the platform is highly popular among politicians looking to run campaign websites, which it suggested is because WordPress makes it easy for a site owner to connect directly with users.

If you choose WordPress as a platform for your site, you can make use of many such features to engage with your audience, including social tools, feedback forms and built-in comment systems. You also don't have to compromise on the look of your site, as Automattic noted you should be able to create a "beautiful" website with a wide rage of professional-grade features, despite its simple-to-use interface.
