WordPress is a Content Management System (CMS) that has many benefits. When developing a website using WordPress that site can be deployed very fast. Many common features that most websites need, such as a contact form, can be implemented with very little effort. Because WordPress is expandable with plugins, even many more complicated features can be added to the project without the need for complicated or expensive programming.
WordPress has a huge support network and a solid company behind its development. This makes WordPress an ideal candidate as a CMS due to the fact that the developers are constantly looking for vulnerabilities and exploits then releasing patches to help keep it secure. Furthermore, the developers are always working to improve its comparability, speed and reliability.
