WordPress is an open source and freely distributed blog publishing platform and CMS (Content Management System) with a strong focus on accessibility, usability and user experience.

Features at a glance

The software features cross-blog communication tools, specific comments section, spam protection, full user registration, password protected posts, support for importing various documents, a XML-RPC interface, intelligent text formatting, support for multiple authors, as well as bookmarklets and workflow.

Probably its most important feature is that it is search engine friendly. It integrates powerful link management functionality, a neat permalink structure, automatic filters for standardized styling and formatting of text in blog posts, and Pingback and Trackback support.

In addition, it provides users with the ability to assign multiple, nested categories to blog posts, as well as to tag articles and blog posts. It is supported on all mobile platforms, including Android, BlackBerry, iOS, Windows Phone, and WebOS.

It's easy to install and update

WordPress is easy to install and upgrade, it can be quickly extended through official add-ons or plugins provided by the community, and provides users with a plethora of themes, so you can beautify your site whenever you feel the need.

It is a web-based application that can be easily deployed on a running and healthy Linux-based server with Apache or nginx, requiring only PHP 5.2.4 or greater, MySQL 5.0.15 or higher, and mod_rewrite.

Getting started with WordPress

Installing this piece of software is an easy task, but we strongly recommend to get one of those shared hosting services that offer a preinstalled version of WordPress from the get-go. A complete list can be found on the official website.

Because everyone knows that WordPress is the most popular blogging platform on the Web, we feel obliged to recommend it to anyone who just discovered the Internet and wants to quickly create a simple and beautiful blog or website. It deserves more than five stars!
