What is WordPress?

WordPress is currently the fastest growing CMS software. Initially, WordPress was largely associated with blogs as its main functionality was to allow easy blog experience. Yet, over time, its developers expanded its functionality to allow the creation of more complicated websites and grew it into a content management system rather than a blogging tool. WordPress is considered the easiest to use CMS thanks to a very friendly interface. It also has an amazing number of plugins which allow extension of its functionality in various possible ways.
