Abbreviated quote from WordPress.org
Open Souce Content Management
WordPress is most popular for its packaged application, which can be downloaded from WordPress.org and installed anywhere as the basis, platform, and structure for an entire website.
WordPress is open source, meaning simply that all of its code and files are free to use, customize, and enhance, as a result WordPress technology has been harnessed by thousands. From curious individuals to freelance professionals to Fortune 500 companies, people all over the world use WordPress because of its many powerful features. These include a templating system, workflow, search-engine friendly link structures, advanced content categorization, and more.
But it's FREE so what the heck do you need us for . . . ?
Well . . . truth be told you don't. You can do this on your own. If you have the time to invest in doing the research to successfully set up your own site or blog I would suggest you bookmark this site and get on with it. I would however add us to your favourites or bookmarks in the event you need some help with the process of installing and setting up your site. Don't get me wrong, it can be done with relative ease. You will have a functioning website or blog and can start adding your content right away.
In reality it's not quite as simple as some say and many people find it takes a little longer than they first thought. Remember you want a professional image for your company.
Call us if you want a professional looking WordPress website or blog which represents your company to the best advantage. Our WordPress Installations provide this and the ability to take control of your own content from that point on, or you always have the option of having us manage your content for you at a fraction of the cost of tradition methods.
