The content management system that powers over a third of the web
Pixel has been developing WordPress websites almost as long as WordPress has been around. Create, revamp or update your online presence.
What is WordPress?
At Pixel, we almost always start the website design and development conversation with WordPress. There are other options and we’re happy to discuss, but WordPress is the perfect starting point. WordPress is a free, open-source website creation platform and is the easiest and most popular website builder in existence today. On a more technical level, WordPress is a content management system (CMS) written in PHP that uses a MySQL database. In non-geek speak, If you’re wondering why WordPress is such a widely used website content management system, here are some of the benefits of WordPress as a platform:
WordPress allows you to publish and build your website content quickly. Even as a beginner, you can easily use WordPress.
Easy to use
If you can use a word processing software like Microsoft Word, you can use WordPress to build and manage a website.
Extendable with WordPress plugins
The core WordPress software can be extended with WordPress plugins. WordPress plugins are bits of software that you can upload to your website to add more features (such as e-commerce, SEO, backups, contact forms and more). There are tens of thousands of free and premium WordPress plugins available.
While no website platform is 100% secure, WordPress security continues to improve with a vigilant security team of core developers and users. Common WordPress security issues are usually due to user error, rather than the software itself.
