WORDPRESS CMS (CONTENT MANAGEMENT SYSTEM)
WordPress is an open source project that was started in 2003 and originally used as a blogging tool. Since then it has evolved into a fully-fledged content management system (CMS) that can be used to create a range of stunning websites. From simple blogging sites to a stand out selling point for your business, a WordPress website can handle it all.
