Are you considering having a website created from scratch but don’t have any idea on how to make one? Why not install WordPress on your web hosting server, instead? WordPress is an open source blogging platform which can also be converted into a website for free. Multiple business owners and bloggers alike are already using WordPress because of its exceptional flexibility and functionality.
Compared to the traditional web site creation, WordPress has big advantage because of its numerous plugins and themes. With the plugins and themes, your website can be customized according to your needs. All plugins are designed with specific purpose. One of the most popular plugin is called Akismet, which purpose is to protect your site against spammers. Some of these plugins are available free of charge but you can also hire a developer to create unique plugin that is customized according to the functionalities that you need.
There are also numerous themes which you can use to make the website’s appearance more appealing to its visitors. Same with the plugins, themes are also available either for free or for a minimal cost, but you can also ask a web designer to tweak the existing theme according to your specifications. However, there’s more to WordPress than just website customization. Below are some of the advantages of using WordPress as a Content Management System tool.
Ease of Use
WordPress is very easy to setup especially if Fantastico is present in the cPanel of your hosting account. If Fantastico is not available, you can still install WordPress into your web hosting account manually by uploading the core files via FTP.
Updates and upgrades can be easily done by clicking a link. Everytime a new update is available, a message on the administration panel will appear to inform the site’s administrator about its existence.
Anyone who has experience in PHP language can work within the codex to modify certain operations and functions. A developer can visit wordpress.org to view the CMS documentation to help him go through the codex, themes and plugins modifications with minimal effort.
Virtual Assistant Friendly
Updating the website’s content can easily be done through outsourcing. You can give a VA his own username and password to input the necessary file to update content to the site without worrying that he might mess up the entire site.
Learning to build a website using WordPress is a bit challenging and fun at the same time especially for the newbies. And today is the best time to start learning the skill.

We are getting a lot of calls this morning about malware infections on peoples computers; So far they are all different infections, but it’s rather strange to get such a spate of them all at once, leading us to believe a new exploit has been found and is being actively exploited ahead of Microsoft fixing it.
All the clients we have seen infected this morning have been using Internet Explorer, so we strongly recommend everyone go to getfirefox.com and switch to Firefox, so as to help avoid these kinds of expensive problems.
