What is WordPress?

Categories: Chapter 1, CMS, Hosting Options

WordPress is one of the most popular open source content management systems available. It has global and vibrant users, developers, and support communities.

While it can be compared to Drupal and Joomla as a user-generated content workhorse, but WordPress distinguishes itself with a broad array of hosting options, functional extensions (plugins), and aesthetic designs and elements (themes).
