    Wordpress


    All along I thought wordpress was a blogging site. I have a client who said she had a wordpress site hosted by bluehost.com. I was sure that she only had her domain with bluehost that pointed to her wordpress blog. Bluehost has on there home page that they have wordpress. Now I am totally confused. What is wordpress?

    WordPress is a CMS (content management system) that is free to use and extremely user-friendly. You can create attractive blogs and websites with it. It comprises of a wide range of user-friendly features, easy to use applications and themes, scripts and plugins. Even the users who are not tech savy can create impressive website with WordPress and it can be integrated with any of the web hosting plans.

    I understand that you are confused. WordPress is a website (blog) management platform and CMS. a Wordpress CMS based site would be hosted with any hosting provider who supports it (99.9% do). However the Wordpress founder and owner created Wordpress.com to offer both free and paid services based on his website management platform.
