Popular CMS: Understanding the Basics of WordPress

Hello, this is the WebSpeed support desk. In this blog post, we will provide an overview of WordPress.

The WebSpeed service specializes in the use of WordPress. However, we understand that some of our website visitors may be unfamiliar with WordPress and are wondering "what is WordPress?" Therefore, we would like to provide a brief explanation of WordPress in this post.

What is WordPress?

WordPress is an open-source and free CMS (content management system) that was first released in 2003.

It boasts an overwhelming share as a CMS worldwide and according to W3Techs, which provides statistical information on the technology, 42% (as of 2022) of all CMS users are currently using WordPress, and over 40% of websites globally are created using WordPress.

WordPress is widely used all over the world, from personal websites to corporate and government websites. Let us take a look at why WordPress is so popular.

WordPress offers a plethora of themes, making it easy to create blogs and websites.

Normally, when creating a blog or website, one would have to commission a website developer to create the site. This can cost tens of thousands of yen or more, making it difficult and cumbersome for those who wish to create a website without much hassle.

However, WordPress has themes that allow users to easily create a website without any technical knowledge of HTML or CSS. This is why WordPress is so popular, as anyone can easily create a website without having to commission someone else to do it.

WordPress offers a wide range of plugins that can be used for various purposes.

WordPress offers various plugins as an extension feature, which makes it possible to implement even complicated tasks easily.

For instance, creating a backup of a website, including the database, can be a difficult task without using plugins. In that case, one has to log in to the server and use complicated commands to create a backup. It requires a certain level of technical knowledge to create and manage backups safely.

However, using plugins makes it possible to create and manage backups visually in the WordPress admin dashboard, even without extensive technical knowledge. With the help of plugins, creating a backup is much simpler and accessible.

Apart from backup plugins, security plugins and other plugins are available, which expand the possibilities of WordPress even further.

Even in the event of troubles, it is easy to find resolutions

When operating a web site for a long time, various troubles will inevitably arise. When trying to solve these problems, one would usually search for articles related to the specific trouble on search engines such as Google.

However, if the number of users is small, it can be difficult to find solutions to the problem. This can result in a significant amount of time being spent trying to solve the problem.

In this regard, WordPress has a large number of users all over the world, and these users have been contributing to web sites by posting solutions to various problems. Therefore, even if any trouble occurs, one can quickly find a solution to it.


By using WordPress, you can easily create a website and execute and manage difficult tasks such as backups with plugins.

Moreover, if any trouble occurs, there are abundant articles available on how to solve them, written by users from all around the world. This makes it possible to solve problems quickly, rather than attempting to solve them on your own. When using a website, such as a blog or homepage, please consider using WordPress.

Additionally, please consider using WebSpeed, a service that can quickly set up and strengthen the security of your WordPress website.
