WordPress is a Content Management System which allows you to do much more than just blog. It allows you to register users, sell products, distribute content, host videos, maintain databases and much much more. There’s a reason why multimillion dollar companies such as the one’s we’ve previously listed trust WordPress; it’s simply an amazing tool that allows multiple people from different pages of the world to work on the same site and as a team while at the same time effectively managing their roles within the work.

Depending on what it is you want to do, there are tens of thousands of plugins which extend the functionality of your website. The much larger number of themes available for download and use enhance your ability to customize your website to look and feel anywhere you want it to. The possibilities are limitless.
