WordPress Beautiful blogs and websites are created with wordpress. You can easily create posts and pages without a lot of thinking involved. And it allows a lot of flexibility, plug in’s and widgets to customize your site. Purchasing dedicated wordpress hosting is best to avoid site loading lags and page navigation delays.
You have to be on top of backups, updates for the theme, updates of the wordpressversion, and all associated plug ins for everything to work efficiently. The only downside to wordpress is that there is no help if things go wrong. If you choose wordpress, ensure you get wordpress specific hosting vs regular hosting to avoid issues with speed. Quick loading of your pages is critical to keeping people on your site.
