WordPress is a free, open source content management system (CMS). It’s a software that allows people to create, organize, and update websites without having to manually code every page. WordPress was actually started as a blogging platform, however, it has grown into something much more than that now. It has evolved to be used as a full content management system and so much more through thousands of plugins, widgets, and themes. WordPress is currently powering 30% of the web, making it the most popular CMS in the web world.
WordPress is a vast software that comes in two forms—WordPress.com and WordPress.org. WordPress.com is a blog hosting service that allows users to setup a free website that operates on custom version (limited) of the WordPress software. And then there is WordPress.org, a software with which you can do just about anything without any limitations. In simple words, WordPress.org is basically the home of the open source WordPress software. Most importantly, WordPress is an all-in-one feature-packed website platform, and it can do just anything!
