WordPress Market Share

Probably every active Internet user has heard about WordPress. If you haven’t, you better check this out. Over the last years, WordPress has become the most popular CMS in the world. It’s an open-source content management system (the so-called CMS), with which you can quickly and easily build your own website. Its development started 12 years ago, back in 2001 under the name b2 cafelog. Today this platform is the most popular CMS in the world and powers 19% of all sites in the world, around 72 million. Not only it’s completely free, but also its professional, secure, and highly customizable. But one of its main powers is that you can use thousands of different plugins and themes to extend the functionality of your WP site. You can install them online, just with a single click, and most of them are completely free, too. We built our site using this great platform and the feeling is great. Although that there are hundreds of other CMSes out there, the second most popular – Joomla, has only 3% of the market share.
