Why WordPress?

Due to its robust features, many of the top brands use WordPress to power their websites including but not limited to: Time Magazine, Google, Facebook, Sony, Disney, LinkedIn, The New York Times, CNN, eBay, and more.

WordPress is free software, this means you are free to download, install, use and modify it. You can use it to create any kind of website. It is also open source, which means the source code of the software is available for any one to study, modify and play with.

Using WordPress rather than a web agency’s proprietary CMS solution means that you are more easily able to move supplier for hosting or future development.
