What is WordPress?

WordPress is one of the most popular CMS, or content management systems. CMS is software that lets you create, manage, and modify digital content.

WordPress actually powers one third of the entire internet! It is the most common way for businesses, organizations, and nonprofits to create and manage their websites. 

There are two solutions:

  • WordPress.org. If you use WordPress.org, you take care of your website hosting. 
  • WordPress.com. If you use WordPress.com, WordPress takes care of the hosting.

If you want to add e-commerce capabilities to your WordPress website, you can install special plugins like the Ecwid E-commerce Shopping Cart plugin. It automatically creates a Store page where your customers can purchase your products. You’ll be able to manage your online store right from your WordPress back-end.
