Why you should use WordPress for your website

4290590954 d48d71e39aWordPress powers almost 27% of the internet. For a CMS that started as a humble blogging platform, that's pretty impressive. When it comes to WordPress design, CanberraWeb is well-versed in the workings and the benefits of this CMS.

Here are a few reasons why you should be using WordPress for your website.


WordPress is open source software, which means it has thousands of developers contributing code in the form of plugins and extensions. The sheer number of supported plugins makes WordPress one of the most versatile CMSs on the market.

Because the majority of WordPress's extra functionality is added as plugins, WordPress is also a lot leaner than other systems that often include all potential functionality as standard.

Ease of use

WordPress is one of the easiest CMSs on the market to use. This is because its admin interface is designed with users in mind. From its inception in 2003, <a href="https://www.elegantthemes.com/blog/resources/the-evolution-of-ui-vs-ux-in-wordpress-web-design">WordPress's interface updates</a> have consistently moved toward a more friendly and intuitive user experience.

What does that mean for you in 2018? A beautifully designed and easily navigated admin interface that will have you updating your content with very little training necessary.

Update from anywhere

WordPress is browser based which means you can update your content or post a blog from any computer with an Internet connection. With the majority of us accessing the Internet on multiple platforms, this feature is more important than ever.

WordPress also has both an Android and iOS app which means you can update your website on the go.

Scale your website with your business

WordPress scales incredibly well. This means you can build your small, starter website in WordPress and rest assured that you can stick with the platform as your business (and your website) grows.

Even if your functionality needs change as your business does, you can add to WordPress' existing functionality with plugins as required.
