About WordPress:

WordPress is the best website builder because of its popularity, intuitive features, scalability, and ease of use.

With WordPress, you will have complete control over your website as opposed to other builders that restrict you to building inside their environment.

Unlike other website builders, you will require your own hosting account to host your own website. Setting this up is super easy! Anyone can be up-and-going in minutes.

WordPress let’s users of any skill level build different kinds of websites, like eCommerce stores, social networks, membership forums, personal portfolios, corporate informational website, and more. It offers limitless design possibilities with thousands of beautiful pre-coded templates for you to choose from (you can even make your own!), and millions of plugins to customize your sites. Think of plugins as WordPress apps – simple, one-click downloadable programs that add specific functionality to your website.

WordPress also offers many options to translate your website into different languages.
