What is WordPress?

WordPress is a completely free tool used to create dynamic websites. Originally, WordPress was developed as blogging software. In recent times, since WordPress is so robust everyone from web developers to average computer users have used it to build beautiful websites. With WordPress there really are no limits!

What is a blog?

A blog is a type of website or part of a website that is maintained on a regular basis by it's owner with entries regarding commentary, reviews, opinions, and other media such as video. The term blog is actually short for "web log" but can also be used as a verb. In the verb form, "blogging" means to post to your blog.

WordPress, it's completely free?

WordPress is completely free. There is no trial version to "test" or no "free" version that lacks all the full features. WordPress is a free and open source software. Open source software typically relies on the community of developers to develope and test the software, provide support via forums, and . Without the "community" WordPress would cease to exist and would not be as robust as it is.

How does WordPress work?

WordPress is dynamically driven through the use of a database. You must have the ability to create and utilize a database to use WordPress. WordPress stores all of the information such as posts, articles, and pages in the database. Installing WordPress on your hosting account is easy. WordPress has touted itself as having a "5-minute" install, and it's true. Even a novice can install WordPress in five minutes!
