5 reasons we love WordPress
WordPress is a content management system (cms). We love it here at MyIP.gr and believe that everyone should – at least – be aware of its existence.
Here are 5 reasons why we love WordPress so much. It’s free! Let’s face it – it’s FREE! When we say free we mean completely free and it is all open source. But what is open source? This means that the source code of the program is open to its users and changes can be made to its original design.
Everyone can contribute by creating a plugin (called Plugin) that will work with WordPress. There are thousands of plugins available in WordPress to choose from and you will definitely find one that exactly suits your needs and requirements. Each plugin performs a different process such as SEO actions, makes the website faster, adds extra features, etc. All you need to do to run your own website on WordPress in a MyIP package from a company in the industry. On our homepage you can find all the companies we have worked with and we recommend them 100%!
Optimize your SEO!
What exactly do we mean by that? How can a content management system help us with SEO? Using WordPress makes it very easy for Google to locate your website and content and thus index your page faster and better!
This is the biggest plus of WordPress that does not require extra effort for SEO optimization. If you want to go a little further, there are many SEO-based plugins available like Yoast SEO. You can use as many as you want, many or even one. These always tell you what you need to optimize so that your website has better rankings!
It is visible!
WordPress has a very wide variety of themes – templates that you can use or if you want and have the knowledge, you can make your own themes!
It is also great to have a mobile friendly page, which is especially important nowadays. Your website should respond and WordPress loosens your hands on this piece as most templates are responsive on all devices (tablets, mobiles, desktops).
There are many bad guys on the internet and you need to be protected. With the help of some plugins your site will be safe against malwares or other attacks.
We strongly recommend that you install a security plugin, at least in terms of login protection – that is, limit how many times a user can enter the wrong password. New threats are emerging every day for this and you need to be prepared.
Ease to use!
It is one of the most important benefits of WordPress. You do not need to know HTML (although it is definitely very useful and helpful) to maintain your website. If you do not have your own developer WordPress is much easier to learn and manage on your own.
You may at some point hire a developer who needs to learn your code but with WordPress not much changes – if you have done it again in the past you can easily repeat it. Building a website in WordPress is a very easy and – relatively – fast process. Even if you do not have any programming knowledge, then you can very easily create a website in WordPress!
Day by day, your knowledge of WordPress web design will increase and so you will be able to do more and more advanced things on your website!
