WordPress is a content management system that runs on MySQL and PHP. The best part about WordPress is it is free and an open-source platform. It comes with a wide range of templates opening up the possibilities in creating an e-commerce website, or a service provider website, or an individual’s website. Thus, it meets the requirements of all the facets of the world. Its features are plugin architecture and the above-mentioned template system. Though it is mostly associated with blogging, it also supports other content like media galleries, traditional mailing lists, and forums.
