What is WordPress? Explained for Beginners

What is WordPress? Essentially, WordPress is the simplest and most popular way to create your own website or blog. In fact, WordPress controls over 43.3% of all websites on the Internet. Yes – more than one in four websites you visit are likely powered by WordPress.

From a more technical point of view, WordPress is an open-source content management system licensed under the GPLv2, which means that anyone can use or modify the WordPress software for free. A content management system is, in short, a tool that makes it easy to manage important aspects of your website – such as content – without needing to know anything about programming.

The end result is that WordPress makes building a website accessible to anyone – even people who are not developers.
