WordPress can manage both a website and a blog
Having your website and a blog set up in two different places can prove difficult and be hard to match the design to keep with the same branding. WordPress allows you to manage both your blog and your website in the same place. You can also have just a website, or just a blog using WordPress.
Easy to integrate plugins
Many companies may need extra features on their websites such as a booking calendar or contact form. WordPress has a range of free and premium plugins that are quick and easy to install with no knowledge of coding needed. With a few clicks you can have the plugin of your choice active and ready for your customers to use.
WordPress is constantly updating
One of the main things you want from a system is for it to constantly update to match the current needs of the users. WordPress is over a decade old and constantly release security and plugin updates to make sure your site keeps current and avoid common security errors. One example to this would be that the WordPress CMS was updated to responsive meaning it will display on mobile devices. There is also a support forum which usually answers any common questions and help you solve an issue quickly.
Website security is vital for any business to avoid hacks and attacks on a site. There are a range of WordPress plugins available which include features such as firewall, IP blocking, update detection and blocking users that try to hack your website. A plugin like this is much needed to make sure that your site fully protected from attacks.
