Open Source Free WordPress Small Business Websites
WordPress CMS is open source software you can use to create a beautiful website, blog, or app. It's free to use, alter and reproduce.
It is rare and wonderful that that the best thing you can buy (for your website) is not for sale, because, it is free… forever.
39% of the web uses WordPress, from hobby blogs to the biggest news sites online.
I’ve been building websites for 27-years, for major brands, small businesses, and everyone in-between. I started with HTML 1.0 and implementing tables and invisible pixels to design and control the website. WordPress is the single most significant tool ever created for website design.
There are certain business websites that are better served on a platform other than WordPress.org
However, it’s unlikely your small business is one of these businesses.
The WordPress Mission
WordPress is software designed for everyone, emphasizing accessibility, performance, security, and ease of use. We believe great software should work with minimum set up, so you can focus on sharing your story, product, or services freely. The basic WordPress software is simple and predictable so you can easily get started. It also offers powerful features for growth and success.
We believe in democratizing publishing and the freedoms that come with open source. Supporting this idea is a large community of people collaborating on and contributing to this project. The WordPress community is welcoming and inclusive. Our contributors’ passion drives the success of WordPress which, in turn, helps you reach your goals.
