Converting a Website To WordPress

Converting a Website To WordPress

If you are wishing you could easily make changes to your website, would like a redesign, or want to add functions without expensive coding, you might want to switch your website to WordPress.

WordPress is the most popular CMS (content management system), used by 60% of all web developers and running 1/3 of all websites on the web! And there’s a reason for that. WordPress speeds up website development, makes it fast and easy to add complex functions such as site search, dynamic content and e-commerce, and allows non-coders to easily make changes to their content. Nowadays many websites developed in HTML or PHP and even other CMS’s are getting converted to WordPress. Still, some are afraid to convert their site from PHP or other CMS’s to WordPress for fear of spending lots of time and money, and possibly losing data.

Unless you’re good with HTML code and want to get your hands dirty figuring out the more complex parts of WordPress, it’s best to a WordPress expert to convert your website. If all you want to do is to copy your existing content to WordPress in an off the shelf design, that can be very fast and inexpensive.

Advantages of using WordPress :

Easy to use: WordPress is easily installed and modified whenever required.
Easy to customize: WordPress comes out of the box with most of the functions you need for a basic website, but there are literally millions of free and paid designs (themes) and plugins that add additional functionality or features to it.
Support: As WordPress is the most popular CMS, there are a large number of developers and hosting companies supporting it, and new plugins and themes are added every day.

Thus, for those who are looking for converting or updating their website, WordPress is highly recommended.
