WordPress is a CMS, which is short for “Content Management System”. To put it more clearly, it is a piece of software that helps you manage the content of your website without reading endless lines of codes. Other CMS are Drupal and Joomla.
Originally a blog engine - now so much more
WordPress was originally created to be a blog engine, which can still be seen on its user interface. However, by now it is not only used by bloggers, because it has become so much more than that. 31% of all website are WordPress pages. With the help of different themes and plugins we can create all kinds of sites, tribute pages, journals, or even webshops.

Functions are extendable anytime (even for free)
Every day numerous plugins are developed for WordPress, and if you need something even more special than that, a developer or agency can get it done easily.
