- Open source: WordPress is an open source platform meaning that developers can use the code written and used already without having to modify or starting from the beginning, is not that great? As it has large communities of developers, thereby, developers share codes with each others saving time and cost of writing and implementing a new one. It comes under the GPLv2 license that means, you can easily modify, distribute and use the code without having to pay any subscription or license fees.
- Usability and simplicity: With other frameworks or CMS you need have a basic understanding of technical jargon and knowledge but when it comes to WordPress users with no technical background and use it and that too, quite easily. You don't need to be familiar with programming languages like HTML, PHP, CSS etc as it is click and use. WordPress is easy to setup, update and manage.
- Easy of operation: with time everything changes or just to abide by the new technology and guidelines you need to introduce a little modification in your site be it removing/adding a page, changing the background color, themes etc. Now, what? You will be outsourcing your project or hiring designers or developers for the modification but with WordPress, you don't have to hire anyone no need of technical assistance as you can make changes to the site without writing a single line of code. This saves you time and money as you don't need a high-level developer/designer for its setup.
