What is WordPress and what does it do? To answer this question, I will begin with an analogy. If you want to make a pizza, you must first make the dough, then chop and prepare the ingredients you want to pour over the pizza one by one, and finally put it in the oven to cook. It’s a lot of hard work and very time-consuming. Before that, you should already have knowledge of how to make a pizza.
So why waste time when there is a semi-finished pizza market? You open the package, put it in the oven, and that’s it. If you want to make a richer pizza, you can add whatever you want. It does not require training or hours of preparation.
This way you have a delicious pizza in less time and at a lower cost.
All site builders and content management systems (CMS) like WordPress do the same. Simply put, they provide you with a house frame so you can execute your own plan with the wall and no longer have to spend time on concreting and framing.
Just like a ready-made pizza.
With WordPress, you can start a blog, personal website or online store without coding or getting involved with complex tasks.
In the following article, we hope to get you a little more familiar with WordPress.
What is WordPress?
WordPress is a free content management system that anyone can use to get their website up and running.
Just install WordPress on the host server, select the desired template and then edit the pages and posts for the website. The simplicity and completeness of WordPress features have led to the fact that about one-third of the world’s websites now use WordPress.
At Kiuloper, we use WordPress on a daily basis to tailor our website to our specific needs and find it to be very easy to use and effective.
Why is WordPress so popular?
Along with WordPress, there are several other content management systems such as Joomla, Magento and Vix, but none of them are nearly as popular as WordPress. Here are some of the features that keep them ahead of the competition.
The most important and main feature of WordPress is simplicity. Anyone can work with it and you do not need any WordPress training course at all. The initial installation may require some technical knowledge, but after installing a graphical and simple user interface, you will be dealing with a smooth-running system ready to customize your website.
With WordPress, you can launch any type of website. Edit web pages as you wish and publish any content such as images, videos, forms, etc.
No matter what your goal is, with WordPress you can easily find a way to do whatever you need. Even in recent years, there has been a way to turn a website and WordPress into a mobile application.
Open source means that all WordPress code is publicly available, and anyone can help develop it. Simply put, this is a public benefit project and its development benefits everyone. Developers and programmers from all over the world work on WordPress. Some work on the core of WordPress, some on plugins, and many more that build or update WordPress templates.
Of course, all this effort is not without pay. Template developers make money from their sales, and plugin developers make money by providing paid features.
Ability to install plugins
As we said, WordPress only gives you a basic framework, so the rest is up to you. For example, if you want to put a registration form on the site, set up a bank payment gateway for your online store, or connect an online chat service to your site, you will need plugins.
WordPress repository has thousands of free or non-free plugins that solve any need or problem you may have.
If you have little technical knowledge about website security, you will always be wondering if your site has a security problem. How can I prevent my site from being hacked?
WordPress solves this problem to a great extent by implementing security measures and at least your site will not be compromised with simple hacking techniques. Of course, this does not mean that WordPress has no security issues at all, it just means WordPress is able to eliminate most of the risk.
Suppose you design and code your site without the use of content systems such as WordPress. You will definitely need a lot of changes and updates after at least a year. These updates are not just your own taste changes. Development and design strategies, security, website promotion and speed up are always changing so you can not get a designed site and use it forever.
What do we need to use WordPress?
Well, now we come to the sweet and lovely part of the work, which is installing WordPress. You need a domain and a host to get started with WordPress.
Domain registration is not difficult; With a simple visit to our domain page, you will easily be able to register the domain of your choice in a matter of minutes.

Is WordPress enough?
Semi-prepared pizza is only suitable for days when you do not have time to prepare food or a party is on the way. We do not expect its taste and quality to be like fresh, home-cooked pizza.
The same is true in the world of web design. If you are going to have a simple website or a medium-sized store, WordPress will meet all your needs. If there is a small problem, you can solve the problem with the help of a web designer. But if you want to create a completely custom site tailored to your needs, WordPress will not help much.
We suggest that if your goal is just to launch a simple site such as a personal site, company or blog, with WordPress you can reach your goal in the best possible way at the lowest cost. If you have a big goal like starting an online business or online store, you can also start with WordPress and after expanding the work and reaching a stage where WordPress was no longer responsive, you can spend there and build a complete dedicated site. That is where we excel here at Kiuloper.
