WordPress combines simplicity for users and publishers with under-the-hood complexity for developers. This makes it flexible while still being easy-to-use. With WordPress, you can create any type of website you want: a personal blog or website, a photoblog, a business website, a professional portfolio, a government website, a magazine or news website, an online community, even a network of websites.
You can create Posts and Pages, format them easily, insert media, and with the click of a button your content is live and on the web. Your blog is your home, and comments provide a space for your friends and followers to engage with your content.
WordPress is optimized for search engines right out of the box. For more fine-grained SEO control, there are plenty of SEO plugins to take care of that for you. WordPress has always been easy to install and upgrade. If you’re happy using an FTP program, you can create a database, upload WordPress using FTP, and run the installer. Not familiar with FTP? As the most popular open source CMS on the web, WordPress has a vibrant and supportive community.
