Host All Of Your Websites, Not Just Your Blog, With Certified Hosting And Wordpress12/16/2011
WordPress is, hands-down, the number one tool for blogging. No other platform comes close to matching the ease of use and excellent blogging capabilities offered by WordPress. That’s why millions of people and businesses use it every day to share experiences, spread ideas, and build audiences.
But WordPress is much more than a blogging platform. With the right customizations, a WordPress website can become the home of a vibrant forum community, or maybe a professional-looking business page. WordPress can be used to create online stores that are simpler and cheaper to maintain than sites created with dedicated apps. And the list goes on – wikis, online manuals, intranet portals – there is little you can’t do with WordPress hosting.
Certified Hosting, a leading provider of WordPress hosting solutions, recently published an article called More than a Blogging Tool – Discover the Versatility of WordPress, which offers tips and information on using WordPress as a CMS, a lightweight forum, or as an ecommerce app. If you’re considering starting a new site that falls into one of these categories, you should definitely check out Certified Hosting’s new WordPress hosting resource. Before you shell out hundreds of dollars for the services of a developer or buy a specialized application that is too complicated for your needs, give WordPress a try.
Use plugins and themes to transform your WordPress website
One of the features of WordPress that makes the open source platform so versatile (and so popular) is the powerful plugin and template system. Plugins extend the functionality of WordPress beyond the scope of the basic app. For example, you can have a plugin that integrates your site with PayPal and other payment gateways -- an essential feature if you plan to run an online store. Other plugins change how pages are displayed, add photo galleries, or integrate social network feeds. Chances are, however you need to customize your WordPress website, there is a free plugin to help you.
Themes can also be used to transform your WordPress website, but themes only change the appearance of the site and not its functionality. There are plenty of free WordPress themes available online, some of which are designed at a professional level. Moreover, good WordPress hosting providers offer free WordPress themes with their plans, which means that you won’t have to worry about finding and installing good themes yourself.
