Highly customizable platform powers Internet’s top portals.


WordPress is an amazing software that powers a plethora of Internet sites, such as TechCrunch, CNN, Mashable, and even tbreak. The publishing platform offers a very robust way to customize site elements, schedule content, as well as the ability to integrate hundreds of community plugins to add value to your site.

In a recent survey from Pingdom, around 48% of the top 100 blogs were powered by WordPress, either hosted on wordpress.com or on personal hosts. “The last few years we’ve really focused on both the usability and flexibility of WordPress, which has resulted in accelerating growth in both big and small sites. I expect even higher adoption among the largest sites and blogs over the next year.” said founding WordPress developer Matt Mullenweg.

Many users of other blogging platforms have found the move to WordPress to be quite easy, which attributes to the platfrom’s growing user base. It’s flexibility with design and templates also makes it very easy to change looks entirely just with a few mouse clicks.
