When it comes to building a website or updating your online presence, there are countless options to choose from as you are selecting software or a content management system (CMS). One of the most widely used website creation tools is WordPress*, an online-based, open source platform.
WordPress currently powers an astounding 60 million sites (nearly 30% of the internet) and there are countless themes and plug-ins which you can customize your site around.
While it was originally used as a blogging platform, WordPress still functions as a basic website framework and can be customized in millions of different ways using ready-made themes and plug-ins. This means that no matter what kind of site you’re looking to build, chances are your perfect layout has already been created!
Because of its extensive user base/support and customize-ability, WordPress is an ideal starting point around which to build your new website. And the best part of all, it’s affordable for churches and small businesses with any budget.
When paired with a WordPress dedicated web host (we work with Flywheel because of their amazing support, robust web security, and blazing fast load times), your new site can be up and running in no time at all (and can cost less than a dollar a day).
