What is WordPress exactly? And do you recommend it?
What is WordPress exactly?
Some people say that it is a Free Blog service.
Others say that it is a Web Site development tool.
Then others say that it is a CMS. Whatever that means since it seems to have so many :)
And when you create a Web Site on WordPress, is it Hosted on their Data center or do we host the site on our own rented server?
So what is exactly WordPress?
And when do you best think it should be used?
Wordpress is a blogging/website platform and can have a free website but your domain would be somthing like this thenameyouchoose.wordpress.com its the same as wix,blogger.
On the other hand you can have your own domain and have wordpress as your platform which makes it easier for you and new website owner to add features like plugins..
I may be totally wrong but this is what i think wordpress is to me and love using it, it's my main for when building website/blogs. I have no idea how to make a website.blog the old way when wordpress wasn't around.'
I have no intermediate html skillz that would require you to build a website from scratch using html,scripts, css, java blah blah blah.
Wordpress helps people with no skillz in the areas about to create there dream website with ease...
Great thing about WordPredd is that it has a vast library of Plug-ins.
One of my favs are: Jetpack simplifies managing WordPress sites by giving you visitor stats, security services, speeding up images, and helping you get more traffic. Jetpack is a free plugin.
Wordpress is a website editor preferred by legacy business owners and developers as a building platform for their websites but somewhat disliked by more advanced web developers that lean to more versatile tools
like the editors from Oracle, Go Daddy, Wix and others. This alternative website editors are more versatile and full of features not available on Wordpress websites. Go to my website www.islatecno.com to see all the feature capabilities of Wordpress alternative web editors.
Wordpress is actually a group of programs that you install on whatever server (or data center) you want, which allows you to login to its interface and create a website by choosing from a variety of themes (that you can then customize) and plugins (that perform different functions you want). See the portfolio at http://webdesignjustforyou.com to see actual sample wordpress sites.
The amount of customization of the website that is allowed is dependent on the theme you install. The more you can customize, the more complicated the setup of the theme tends to be.
All wordpress websites provide the option to set up a blogging site if desired. The drawback of wordpress is that it is frequently attacked or compromised by malware if it is not vigilantly monitored and kept up to date.
The benefits of wordpress is that it has a large number of themes and plugins to choose from which cuts hard coding you would otherwise need to implement to get the exact look and functions desired.
Wordpress is Blog, a Website Developement platform, a CMS which allows you to develop different types of websites, it is a complete web design tool.
You can use WORDPRESS under the wordpress server or you can use it under your own server.
I recommend you wordpress.

WordPress is a CMS or Content Management System. Bloggers like using it because it makes creating content fairly easy. By this I mean it has some nice writing and publishing plugins. Plugins are add on's that you can download from WordPress and install on your site. Seeing how WordPress is open source many of these plugins are free to use. WordPress also offers some really nice templates to help you design your site and once again many of these are absolutely free to use. They also have paid versions of plugins and templates but the free ones are pretty nice. A word of caution if you start installing plugins than I strongly suggest that you keep a close eye on updates to them. As plugins can be an easy way for hackers to gain access to a website if you don't keep on top of security updates.
