Starting as a simple blogging platform back in 2003, WordPress is now the number 1 CMS (content management system) in the world.

Widely Supported – As the World’s most used open source CMS, there are thousands if not millions of WordPress developers – future proofing your website and avoiding getting stuck with one particular web developer.
Your Choice of Hosting – Unlike WIX, Squarespace & Shopify, WordPress allows you to choose not only your hosting provider, but also your hosting location which helps with your site speed and SEO efforts.
