WordPress is an incredibly powerful and popular content management system (CMS) that is based on Open Source technology. It deploys with a library of extensions that can offer significant improvements in value and customer experience. It’s also completely scale-able and can handle everything from the largest to the smallest sites on the web. Corporations to small business’s utilize this platform to provide a base hub to disseminate information and to build brand loyalty. It’s market dominance is well deserved.
WordPress most prevalent detail is its shear popularity. Some estimations claim it responsible for powering around 60% of the websites on the internet. The popularity is due to the flexibility WordPress provides and its ability to meet the demands of the modern web site owner.
This same popularity is also its main disadvantage. It’s large footprint puts it in the cross hairs of those looking to do harm. However, if its properly maintained its extremely secure.
We highly recommend all website owners, regardless of platform, actively maintain and upgrade their systems. Failure to do so may compromise your security and put your customers at risk.
