WordPress is a free and open source tool for building websites first released in 2003. Since then it has grown to become one of the world’s most popular website publishing platforms and also the content management software of choice for non-blogging websites.
At WebSOS we love building websites using WordPress as it provides a flexible content management system (CMS) that allows people from all walks of life to create and maintain websites without being technical experts or web developers.
As of August 2013, WordPress powers more than 17% of the web and is used by over 18.9% of the top 10 million websites. WordPress is currently the most popular blogging system being used on the Web, and powers over 70 million websites worldwide.
