What Is WordPress?

With an interest in WordPress, it's clear that you've taken the first steps in starting your website. However, you may not entirely know what WordPress is or what sort of advantages you'll have at your fingertips. You may have heard about WordPress from a friend or read about it on a blog. Don't worry! We're here to help!

WordPress is a free and open-source CMS with plugin architecture and a system of templates. WordPress, like many CMS competitors, is template-based. The user chooses a theme, customizes it to personal preferences, and the website is ready to go. With many plug-ins and add-ons available, WordPress can create any site imaginable. This versatile software creates commercial, social media, blogs, and special interest websites around the world.

Websites with content management systems (CMSs) are popular with small businesses that value versatility and appreciate simplicity. Examples of these CMS solutions are Ghost, Joomla and Drupal. Another CMS that happens to be one of the simplest and most versatile applications just so happens to be WordPress.

WordPress is free so there are no additional monthly hosting costs except for custom themes, premium plug-ins, and so on, though any additional plug-ins or add-ons consume utility resources. For big photo galleries, shared media files, or large databases users should plan their budgets accordingly. The WordPress application is a free download from Wordpress.org or it can come pre-installed from A2 Hosting (we also offer an easy 1-click setup via Softaculous if you prefer). With the latter method, the basic framework of a new WordPress site can be running in a few minutes. Manually downloaded installations can more intricate but a web administrator should be able to get your WordPress site up fairly quickly.

WordPress Advantages

As the most used CMS in existence today, WordPress obviously comes loaded with a ton of advantages. 

Users don't need much technical knowledge or expertise. WordPress offers search engine optimization-friendly uniform resource locators, resource description framework site summary feeds, post categories, sticky pages, and an interface suitable for nontechnical writers who want to contribute to the content and to queue, schedule, moderate, and protect posts and pages with passwords.

Because WordPress uses templates, edits are quick and easy. The vast template library offers thousands of layout options and variations, and WordPress accommodates no end of adjustments, customizations, and tweaks. With only basic coding knowledge, users can adapt and modify themes for whatever they need.

The WordPress plugin repository provides additional features that can enhance WordPress functionality. Most WordPress websites have at least a few plugins, and some have dozens that users can enable or disable as they wish.

Here are just a few you'll experience on this platform:

  • Most important WordPress components are 100% free providing an affordable experience
  • Easy to use control panel means an intuitive experience
  • 1-click setup means WordPress is easy to install and get started

  • High availability of free, attractive themes allows you to customize the appearance of your site quickly
  • Easily extend your WordPress install with a wide select of plugins. You can add a lot of functionality to your site ranging from a forum to a full-fledged eCommerce solution.

WordPress History

WordPress' origins can be traced back to the beginning of 2001 when the blogging solution B2/cafelog was launched by French programmer Michael Valdrighi. B2/cafelog was an innovative solution at the time because it introduced the ability for pages to be created dynamically with a MySQL database. Valdrighi continued to work on B2/cafelog and released version 1.0 in 2002. Shortly afterward, Valdrighi stopped developing his solution. This was particularly unfortunate because B2/cafelog had actually grown its user-base to a reasonable number. These users were left without a supported solution.

In the early parts of 2003, college freshmen Matt Mullenweg wrote on his blog that he wanted to create a fork of B2/cafelog. He had been using the software to post photos from his trip to Washington D.C. He teamed with Mike Little to continue work on this new solution. This was around the same time that Valdrighi made an announcement that Little and Mullenweg would be taking lead on the B2/cafelog fork. The team launched the first version of WordPress in May 2003, using the same structure as B2/cafelog.

The WordPress team continued to grow and friends of Mullenweg like Christine Sellect Tremoulet would also contribute to the project. Tremoulet actually was the one who suggested the name "WordPress". WordPress v1.0 was released in January 2004 under the code name Davis. Some of the newest features in this release included SEO friendly permalinks, the ability to post to multiple categories, the addition of comment moderation and Atom support. A few months later in May 2004, version 1.2 was released. This was a bit of a landmark release for WordPress because support for plugins was added in this version. Plugins have played a huge part in helping WordPress grow to the levels it has today because of their ability to add just about any functionality you could want to a site.
