Why Do We Love WordPress?

The answer to this is very simple!

On the sales team for 34SP.com I am asked every day by new customers if we have our own site builder. I also get calls from potential customers who are not so happy with their current host and want to transfer to 34SP.com, but are frightened as they are locked into another host by a custom ‘website builder’.

At 34SP.com we love WordPress and we recommend this content management system to all our customers because it’s versatile, current and simply… Open Source.

“WordPress is an Open Source project, which means there are hundreds of people all over the world working on it. (More than most commercial platforms.) It also means you are free to use it for anything from your cat’s home page to a Fortune 500 web site without paying anyone a license fee and a number of other important freedoms.”

It’s also focused on user experience and web standards, so don’t be put off by the thought of getting used to a new interface. As WordPress is Open Source there are plenty of ways to easily learn about it online. There is a huge community of designers and developers, business owners and hobbyists, that all use WordPress and they’re talking about it all over the internet.

For the people out there that will choose website builders based on examples they’ve seen or nice looking sites (I must admit I do), WordPress suits us all.

There are plenty of websites out there that supply WordPress themes for you to pick from. Try Googling for what you want specifically, you are sure to get plenty of choices. Examples could be something like ‘Photography WordPress Themes‘ or ‘Ecommerce WordPress Themes

WordPress is also egalitarian, inspiring a variety of people to create themes and inspiring youth. From a web developers perspective, it gives them a chance to compete with companies and ultimately form their own businesses from it. WordPress gives developers and designers out there a chance to display website building talent on a global scale. It doesn’t get much better than that!

34SP.com has always been part of a widespread community that promotes Open Source platforms, and we believe that WordPress is a perfect example of versatility, support and ease of use.

Host your WordPress site with us and you will get your first month of WordPress hosting FREE. When your site is ready you can use our WordPress auto installer or we’ll do it for you, as we’ve done it thousands of times. So Sign Up Today You won’t regret it 🙂

  1. It is not a customer management system. It is a blogging platform, a very good one, but still a blogging platform.

    I am very happy if it is used for creating websites as they will shortly be looking for a website designer.

    There are also loads of better, simpler CMS’s than WordPress that are open source.
