Wordpress is one of the most popular content management systems on the market. It’s a user-friendly system and you can build a website without being able to code. In total more than 450 million websites are built on Wordpress. Especially the ecommerce plugin ‘WooCommerce’ is used by 25% of the ecommerce websites and generates 7% of the worldwide sales online.
The downside of Wordpress is that you need plugins and themes for additional features which could slow your website down significantly, especially when you run an ecommerce website. You need to update the plugins and themes regularly. All the additional features add lots of extra and redundant code to your website which slow it down or break with these updates.
