What is WordPress?

WordPress is a popular free php software that can run on almost any web hosting platform.  ‘WordPress’ also run their own hosting platform, but is subscription based and generally more costly than normal hosting providers.

WordPress software is a ‘content management system’ that makes building a website much easier than trying to build from the ground up.  Allowing users to build websites without having to know code, but will also interface easily with other brands 3rd party code.

We feel that the best way to enjoy WordPress is running on our hosting, as you get the best of both; best website building software with the best hosting platform while costing a fraction of what other providers are charging.
