CMS-based websites have become more and more popular over the years and one such amazing CMS- website is WordPress. Today WordPress continues to maintain its position as the most simple and popular website-maker.
At least 20% of the whole web is filled up with WordPress websites. From creating websites for reputed organisations like NASA to building authentic business websites for companies like the Ford Motor Company, WordPress has travelled a long way.
