It has become perhaps the most popular content management system (CMS) in the world. This widely used CMS has become a favorite among businesses because of how powerful and user-friendly it is.
WordPress Now Powers 43% of the Web
Most recent stats show around 810 million websites use WordPress as of 2023. This represents around 43% of all websites. And that figure is growing rapidly. In fact, over 500 sites are built with WordPress every day (including websites like NASA, Time Magazine, CNN, and The White House), compared to just 60-80 on competitor platforms like Shopify and Squarespace.
No Licensing Fees
On top of that, WordPress is also open source with zero licensing fees, so you’ll never have to worry about hidden charges. WordPress will always be free for you to use.
WordPress also comes with unprecedented support. The community of WordPress developers all over the globe who continue to improve it 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, is hard to compete with.
When you use WordPress, you’ll never be locked down to a particular provider again. You will never have to go through the same “hostage” situation where your website is developed on a unique, bespoke system and you can’t move it to a new provider without a huge overhaul.
With WordPress, you have access to an almost unlimited pool of developers—but we’re confident you’ll want to come back to Bright Light when you need support.
