WordPress is a free and open-source blogging tool and content management system (CMS) based on PHP and MySQL. It has many features including a plugin architecture and a template system.
WordPress was used by more than 23.3% of the top 10 million websites as of January 2015 according to W3Techs, making it the most popular blogging system in use on the Web at that time.
This number has since grown to 26%, as revealed in September 2017 by BuiltWith Trends Report, which also states that WordPress now powers almost 37% of all the websites whose content management systems they track.
The most recent version, 4.9, is available for download or update in over 90 languages and serves over 58 million sites around the world.
Why do I need a good host for my blog?
Do you want to run a blog that people will actually read? Well, it’s not enough to just write great content. You also need a good host for your blog. What is hosting and why do I need one?
Hosting refers to the space and bandwidth provided by an Internet Service Provider (ISP) where your website files reside. Have you ever had trouble loading a page on your site or browser because of low bandwidth?
Your pages may have loaded slowly or maybe some images didn’t load at all if they exceeded the amount of data allowance allotted by your ISP.
Is WordPress updated regularly?
I’ve been a blogger for a few years now, and I have noticed that lately WordPress has been going through some changes. It’s not just the new features they are adding, but also the updates to existing features as well as security patches.
The thing is that these changes sometimes come out of nowhere and can take hours or days to implement on your website if you don’t know what you’re doing.
So I wanted to do this post to try and answer one question: Is WordPress updated regularly?
