What is WordPress? At its core, WordPress is the simplest, most popular way to create a website or blog. In fact, WordPress powers over 35% of all the websites on the Internet. Yes – more than one in four websites that you visit are likely powered by WordPress.
Many years ago, WordPress was primarily a tool to create a blog, rather than more traditional websites. That hasn’t been true for a long time, though. Nowadays, thanks to changes to the core code, as well as WordPress’ massive ecosystem of plugins and themes, we can create any type of website with WordPress.
