What is WordPress?
If you’re reading this, it’s likely because you’ve heard of that all elusive word – WordPress.
So what is it? Well, it’s basically everything online. WordPress is just software that anyone can use to build their own website or blog and publish it on the internet. It’s also called a content management system – or CMS for all you tech whizzes out. However, we’re going to have to pump the breaks for a second because when we say everyone, that’s not exactly fair. That’s like telling someone they can drive a car. I mean yes, almost anyone can drive a car – but immediately after being handed a pair of keys? Absolutely not! It requires a good deal of time to figure out how to do a three-point turn (sorry again Mr Wheeler). It’s for that reason that WordPress Web Designers exist in Bournemouth and beyond. Companies like us are on hand to help you realise your web presence without having to put all the hours of education in.
Can’t figure out how to drive your WordPress site (or even figure out how to start the ignition)? Then picture us as your rail replacement service (except we actually show up on time).
WordPress was created back in 2003 and since then, it’s become one of the most popular website publishing programs in the world. In fact, just over 37.2% of websites on Google are powered by WordPress (correct as of March 2021).
Meaning that roughly 1 in every 4 websites you visit is powered by WordPress!
The beauty of WordPress
- Choose from eleven thousand different themes
- Tweak all text (including fonts and font sizes)
- Create and implement hyperlinked buttons
- Upload photos, videos and much, much more
- Choose from over 55,000 plugins and widgets
Any of that sound familiar to you? If the answers no, fret not. As a WordPress web design company, we know a thing or two about – well – WordPress-related things. A theme, for example, determines the look and style of your website. Think of it as a template or outer shell that your build rests against for support. Whereas a plugin or widget is something that helps optimize the functionality of your website. It’s a bit like getting better wheels for your car. Your old ones might have lost all their tread, whereas these offer better traction. Plus, they might look pretty flash too.
WordPress is essentially a place where individuals can start a store or open a gallery or whatever they want to do with a website. Honestly, there’s endless opportunities online and plenty of untapped potential. Oh – and given that your website is online, so are all the building tools. So long as you have an internet connection and the login details, you can build your website from anywhere in the world. Well, that’s if you have an internet connection of course (sorry Paddington, your folk in deepest darkest Peru might not see it).
Okay, so how does WordPress work?
No, you don’t need to be able to read the Matrix.
Well, back when the internet was still somewhat of a new thing, the only way to make a website was to use code in HTML or PHP format. Your web browser would then interpret this code into colours, texts and spaces to form your website. In all honesty, it wasn’t fancy stuff!
Now, WordPress works exactly like this, except no coding.
I mean, there is coding but basically, WordPress takes any changes that you make, writes the code for you and then updates your website. Meaning you technically never have to touch coding – and thank god because that stuff is like reading the Matrix to the majority of mere mortals. But at Verstech, we’re not saying we’re Neo but we’re certainly plugged in. If you need something custom coded then our Bournemouth web designers will help bring your idea to life.
Now, if you’re looking to make your first website, you may or may not have noticed something. You know, that there’s a wordpress.com and a wordpress.org. So you might be wondering – well, which one do I choose?
A free hosted website with a catch. Actually, several catches.
- WordPress will delete your website if they feel you’ve violated their Terms of Service
- You can’t use ads to make money with your website (big ooof)
- You can’t upload any plugins which help you optimize the functionality of your website
- You can’t upload a customizable theme. You only have their limited options
- You don’t own your own domain name – so, it will say (YourDomainName).wordpress.com
A self-hosted website with limitless potential (yes, we’re biased).
- By being self-hosted you have access to thousands of plugins
- You have a unique domain name that YOU own yourself
- You have the ability to monetize your website with ads
- Plus, you have the option to create an online store
- You have complete customisation over your website
