WordPress is a CMS (content management system) that is used for approx 35% of the web. Think of it as a graphical user interface for creating a website. It was even used to build our site.
It’s notorious for it’s easy learning curve and flexibility. It’s an open source product so developers have created thousands of themes and plugins to extend it’s capabilities.
.com vs .org
WordPress.com is hosted on their server while .org is hosted on the one of your choosing. I recommend using a hosting platform and installing wordpress through them.
SEO – I prefer Rank Math over Yoast
Visual Builder – I’m using Elementor pro in combination with JetEngine for my design and dynamic content
- Let’s Encrypt (free SSL)
- SG Optimizer (if you’re hosting with SiteGround)
Backup – Updraft
