Why Word Press? Well, if you know anything about blogging you’ve heard of WordPress. But what about other web presences besides blogging? WordPress is used EVERYWHERE!
What is WordPress really? It’s a computer program; it’s web software you can use to create a beautiful website or blog. Technically WordPress is a combination of PHP Programming, HTML, style sheets and a database that all come together into a thing of beauty. If you go to the WordPress.org website, they will tell you it is both free and priceless at the same time. Free you ask? Well, yes. The software itself is free, but you’ll need to spend a little money for a domain name and someone to host your WordPress site. If you need a blog, and you’d like it up quickly, wordpress.org will let you set up a totally free site, but to really take advantage of the internet you’ll need those other two things; a name and a place to live. Your domain and your hosting company.
So for five to ten dollars a month and a ten dollar name investment, you are on your way. But wait, there’s more. Indeed so much more, that you’ll need a guide. That’s us. Call us for more information, for some free advice, and possibly a partner in your new venture. Check us out and we’ll tell you exactly Why WordPress for your web site.
