Wordpress powers a whopping 43.3% of all websites on the internet!

You can build any kind of website on WordPress, be it e-commerce stores or full-fledged forums for discussions.

Due to its immense flexibility, while building websites without much technical knowledge, WordPress has a huge fan following. It hosts an array of free or paid themes and plugins.

However, you would need to be in charge of managing the security and management aspect. WordPress itself does not come with inbuilt security but gives the community an advantage to build upon the plugin system that it provides.
