1. Easy to install
Installing WordPress is a process that takes less than 1 minute. When you have already set up your domain with your hosting account, all you have to do is enter the name and quick-install application in the CPanel, select the domain and install the platform.
Everything can be achieved in a matter of a few seconds! After this, you can enter the main Dashboard and make the necessary changes and adjustments.

In a short time, the WordPress Dashboard will become an important part of your daily life, something that you will surely love.
3. Say goodbye to codes
One of the main obstacles that many people have when they want to create their website is having to deal with codes, programming languages and all that kind of advanced technical knowledge.
Even if you do not know anything about coding and even if you’ve never used WordPress before, you’ll still be able to manage and actually create a functional website thanks to the code-free, intuitive platform. After all, with WordPress you do not need to know about code. Of course, if you want to become a developer and a professional on the platform, you will need some experience in PHP, CSS, and HTML, but if you are looking to create and manage a simple website that meets your main business objective or for personal use, it’s not necessary to know anything about programming.
4. Better SEO positioning
Google and WordPress are best buds. Why? Because WordPress is an excellent tool for SEO. The internal optimization is much faster and its structure makes the search engine giant give special preference to pages and blogs created with WordPress to position them better.
This is an amazing advantage, especially if one of your objectives is to position yourself in search engines.
5. Total control
With WordPress, you have total control of all the important elements of your blog or website. This includes design, performance, speed, content, links, etc. Unlike other free platforms like Blogger and Tumblr, with WordPress in your domain, you decide what to publish and nobody can delete the content you have.
Of course, as long as your information is not duplicated, offensive or does not comply with certain important terms of the Web.
6. Design for all
It does not matter if you need a business page, a site with a list of houses for real estate, a gallery with your photos, a portfolio with your work, a resume, a personal blog or any other type of page, WordPress will always have a solution for you.
Many people think that WordPress is just to create blogs. They are totally wrong! The platform serves perfectly for all types of sites. Just look for templates on the Web and in a matter of minutes, you can find many high-quality options.
The plugins are like small software tools that you can install in WordPress to improve the functionality of your page in different areas. For example:
- A plugin to easily insert subscription forms by email
- A plugin to show your Facebook fan page
- A plugin to optimize ON-Page SEO.
- A plugin to avoid SPAM in the comments of your articles
There are endless plugins that cover different needs. Some are free and others have a price. The important thing is to detect what you need and you will find it quickly.
8. Quick modifications
It’s very common that there are times when we need to make some changes in some area or part of our site. Things like editing text, adding images, creating a new section or any other similar need.
With HTML, PHP or any other programming language, this could be time-consuming and much more laborious. But with WordPress, you can modify anything quickly and immediately.
Will anyone else post content on your page? Do you need to create your site collaboratively? No problem! WordPress has the option to add the users you want to be able to edit the site, add content or change certain aspects of the configuration.
There may be several administrators or users with the role of editor or author. That will depend on your choice and company.
10. Adaptation and community
WordPress is a very simple platform that users can adapt to quickly and easily. As we have seen, it is easy to install, manage and use. There are thousands of options to design it as you want and has a large catalog of plugins to make it more powerful in various important aspects.
In addition to this, being an open source, you can have access to a large community of people who can help you with any problem or question you have about the use and maintenance of your site. There are forums, official website and thousands of blogs that can help you get the most out of your site.
