Originally designed as a blogging system, WordPress has grown into a globally recognised open-source content management system (CMS). This is used for website design and website management for all types of businesses.

With top brands like Disney, Facebook and Sony using WordPress, one can see why it’s used by nearly 40% of websites on the internet.


So, here’s why WordPress web design is popular in South Africa:


1. Beginner Friendly

If you’re not technically inclined, the WordPress web design is for you since it’s beginner-friendly. With it, you don’t need to have coding knowledge or advanced design skills to design a website using WordPress.


 2. Free

You read that right! WordPress is a free, open-source platform. Thus, you don’t have to pay for the download or make any changes based on your web design prerequisites.

However, If you like to have your own custom domain name (e.g., www.xploited.media) and monthly hosting, you’ll have to sign up with a web hosting company, like Xploited Media, for hosting and your domain registration.
