WordPress was originally designed as blog software. Increasingly it has been used to build websites that can be updated by people who have no experience with html or website maintenance.
There are several versions. One is hosted for free on wordpress.com and is really meant for those who want to blog. The other version is downloadable for free on wordpress.org. One of the reasons our websites are so affordable is that the backbone is open source and free.
It’s intuitive, easy to use and strongly supported by a wordwide group of designers and developers who continue to make it better, write add-ons and plugins for special functionality and outpaces every other content management system in its class.
For highly robust sites needing e-commerce or community software you may want to look at Joomla or Drupal. If you need that sort of functionality you should visit our other site: www.rrinteractive.com
