WordPress is one of the most sought after content management systems (CMS) and is a platform used by more than 60% of websites on the internet. It drives one in every five websites and launches 100,000 new websites everyday. If you are a business owner thinking to have a website, you are likely to fall into one of the below given categories:
You want to have a website but you don’t know which platform to use for getting it built.

In both the scenarios given above, WordPress would be the best platform to serve your needs. At Biztech, we have a dedicated team of more than a dozen WordPress developers and provide a range of WordPress development services.
Let us see what makes WordPress the right choice for any business website.
1. Abundant themes
One of the major reasons why people love WordPress is because it provides with plenty of professional looking themes. These themes enable you to have a professionally designed website and saves expenses spent behind hiring a professional website designer. You can find more than two thousand free themes on the official WordPress Theme Directory. If you want, you can also buy paid themes from marketplaces like Theme Forest.
2. Easy to configure, update and manage
There is no need for you to be a computer expert or HTML coder in order to use WordPress. You just need a smooth working internet connection and a web browser to create your website. Just login to WordPress.com and create a free account. Thereafter, you will have your own website. If you pay some additional fees, you can also host a website with your domain name.
When you are launching your business, WordPress is a great way to do it. Once you are ready to customize your website, you can change it into a web hosting account.
3. Excellent for both website and blog
When WordPress was launched, it had started out as a blogging system. But in few years, it evolved into an all-inclusive website content management system. And as a result, people started using WordPress not only as a forum to write blogs but also to manage the entire website. So you can do both, maintain a blog and/or have a website for the same.
4. Responsive on mobiles
Accessing websites is no more confined to websites these days. With the ever increasing growth of mobile browsing, your website must look and work great on smartphones and tablets. Most of the WordPress Themes available today are mobile responsive helping your customers to browse your website on their smartphones effortlessly.
5. Friendly with Search Engines
Matt Cutts from Google (formerly) quoted in one of his speeches that “WordPress takes care of tons of SEO issues.” And if you install and use some of the leading SEO WordPress plugins like Yoast, your website will become even more search engine friendly.
6. Add features without professional help
WordPress has a plugin for every functionality you need on your website. The platform was designed in such a way that it can be extended according to your requirements. Be it a contact form or an ecommerce system, there’s a plugin to meet your every business need. There are an array of plugins that can add functionalities to the core system of your website and you can integrate them to your website without hiring professionals.
