WordPress is far and away the market leader in the world of content management systems. This CMS has captured nearly 60% of the market, thanks to its robust list of features and easy-to-use nature.
One of the biggest advantages of WordPress is the fact that it is easy to use for those who don’t know how to write code. If you think a line of code looks like a foreign language, you may want to strongly consider using WordPress. Many small changes to your website can be done with just a few clicks in the ‘Admin’ area, even if you have no coding knowledge.
Another reason for the popularity of WordPress is the abundance of themes and plugins on the market. A ‘theme’ in WordPress is simply a website design or layout which structures the content you add to your pages. A plugin is a piece of code which gives your site a specific functionality. At albieSoft, we develop both themes and plugins to meet the needs of our customers. We highly recommend the use of WordPress due to its vast capabilities – you can walk away with a great looking site even on a modest budget.
But is everything good with Wordpress?
While there are a lot of positive things to say about WordPress, this popular CMS can have a couple of drawbacks – security, and speed. First, on security. Since WordPress is so popular, it is a common target for hackers. To avoid having your site damaged by hackers, you need to make sure you are using quality code throughout your site. The safety of your site is our top priority, so albieSoft will make sure your themes and/or plugins are built to all appropriate standards.
On the topic of page loading speed, you again need tomake sure you have the right code in place on the backend of your WordPress site. A site loaded down with a slow theme and many plugins will damage load time significant. And, since Google uses speed as a search ranking criteria, a slow load time can harm your site in more ways than one. Sites build by albieSoft will always offer fast load speeds thanks to our attention to detail.
