WordPress is reportedly the backend software powering more than 60% of all websites worldwide. That’s an astounding number, but there’s also a good reason why so many website owners rely on WordPress. It’s widely supported, customizable, and can do nearly anything you may want with your website.

WordPress comes in two main versions: Fully managed WordPress.com and self-hosted WordPress.org. The fully hosted version relies on nearly identical software, but the company responsible for building WordPress (Automattic) handles all hosting and software updates.
