2. WordPress is free.

FREE. Yes! We said it. FREE. You will have to buy a domain name and pay for hosting your website, but the actual WordPress software is free. You can install WordPress, find a theme, and start building a website without spending a dime.

WordPress started as a blog-centric platform. Yet over time, with the vast database of themes, website builders such as Divi and Elementor, and free e-commerce solutions such as WooCommerce, you can build just about any type of website imaginable without spending a ton of money on add-ons. Plugins are generally free to inexpensive, many times offering both free and pro versions.

WordPress has become an e-commerce engine. Out of the box, WooCommerce dominates the WordPress market due to its free cost and multitude of free add-on plugins. There is also a huge repository of themes built with WooCommerce and e-commerce in mind. If WooCommerce is not your thing, there are other amazing e-commerce plugins for BigCommerce and Shopify as well.

This is because the site structure built into WordPress is so search engine friendly. Add plugins like RankMath or Yoast and you can make your website an SEO powerhouse.

The amazing thing about WordPress is the community. There is no shortage of answers, tips, walkthroughs, or videos on how to use plugins, themes, or WordPress itself. You can find plugins for almost any situation in the WordPress repository. Find solutions for almost any problem by searching Google or visiting Github. The WordPress community makes it easier than ever to build your website and is one of the major contributing factors to the sustainability of the platform.

The community helps broaden the support and power of WordPress. WordPress’ flexibility has made it one of the most powerful and flexible tools for creating websites.
