Why we LOVE WordPress
By far, the most popular open source Content Management System (CMS), powers >25% of all websites on the world wide web!
WordPress (aka WP) is free to install, deploy, and upgrade. Ten’s of thousand of plugins and templates power a flexible and simple interface, which reduces development costs and deployment time.
ReachRhino has years of accumulated knowledge to deploy high quality websites using WP. Few reasons why it’s our top choice for most clients:
1. Most popular CMS in the world
WordPress holds the largest CMS market share by far, and currently accounts for over a quarter of all websites. As a result, many users are already familiar with the WordPress CMS, requiring less staff training when building a new site.

WP can be self hosted, so no costs associated with downloading, installing, and upgrading. There are more than 50,000 WordPress plugins (often free), such as slideshows, contact forms, SEO optimization, etc.
WP is so popular because it meets the demands of many users with its flexible framework, which allows designers and developers to create and modify layouts and applications. Coupled with user-generated extensions, websites are no longer limited by enterprise extensions.
Our team has experience extending WordPress functionality, as well as incorporating a wide range of plugins, to meet our clients’ unique demands.
4. For anyone – not just developers
Before WP became a popular CMS for website development, it was developed for the non tech savvy bloggers. So, most of the user-interface components are easy to use, and there are written and recorded manuals available for easily learning how to use WordPress functions. Our team handles all the complexities of setting up and customizing your website; all you have to do is to update the content on pages, posts, widgets, etc.
One of the premium plugins we provide to our clients offers both written and video user manuals for WordPress to facilitate onboarding with the WP.
5. Low setup and maintenance costs
DeviousMedia stated that WP incurs fewer setup, customization, and maintenance costs in comparison to other Open Source CMS like Drupal and Joomla. Additionally, it is relatively easier to find WP designers and developers if more customization or development is necessary in the future. You don’t get locked down by a static website or proprietary CMS that is costly to tweak after initial development.
