We always recommend Wordpress for the control factor. Whether you run your site or we manage it for you, WordPress offers easy control over what will be on your site.
What is WordPress?
WordPress is web based software you can use to create a blog or a website. Over 25 million people have made WordPress the top content management system in the world.
The WordPress platform, themes and plugins are built by thousands of people from all over the world. This has allowed WordPress to blossom and produce unbelievable beautiful sites, yet functional sites, that anyone can learn to run. From e-commerce stores to personal blogs, this platform offers more than you can imagine.
Because your site is web based, you can run your site from any computer. Just imagine sitting at Grandma’s on Thanksgiving making a quick update you forgot to make on your site. Maybe running your site from your cellphone is more your ideal scene.
WordPress.Com or WordPress.Org?
WordPress has two divisions. WordPress.com is a free division that is easy to setup and use. It is a very good choice for those of you who just want a great looking site that is easy to run.
But, WordPress.com has it’s limitations; you do not own your own domain, you are limited in themes and you can not monetize a WordPress.com site.
We recommend using WordPress.org because, “You have total control over your site.”
What Does WordPress.org Have To Offer?
The possibilities on a WordPress.org site are almost limitless. Developers have created beautiful themes for all types of sites which include: Real estate, Medical, Photography, Beauty, Health, and Personal.
You own your site. You now own your very own piece of real estate on the Word Wide Web. You have an address which is a URL, (Uniform Resource Locator.) For example my URL is http://seosys.net
You are on your own hosting account. Your sites information is kept on great big web servers and makes you site accessible on the Internet. Your information is stored in an actual physical location. You could consider it as rent. You are paying rent on that computer server space.
WordPress sites are built using Cascade Style Sheets (CSS). This gives your site its look and format. Basically, it separates the code and makes your site easy to run. You do not need to know code. You just point, click and type your message. It’s called: (WYSIWYG (What you see is what you get.)
By using CSS, WordPress has created a system that you, the blogger, can easily manage, it’s called CMS.
Content Mangement System (CMS) – A content management system sets up the criteria for how web content is accessed and revised. It also determines who runs it.
A CMS is designed to simplify the publication of web content to web sites and mobile devices. You can create and submit content, video and images without knowing code. You do not need the services of a webmaster every time you need to make changes on your site.
- You can write and rewrite your web content and publish on line in just a few minutes.
- You can easily load video and pictures for the world to see.
- You determine who has access to your site.
- You determine where you want you site to be hosted. (Hosting makes your Web site visible to the world, it has to be hosted on a Web server.)
CONTROL – Bottom line it comes down to control. You control your site.
