Put simply, WordPress is a software that you can use to create your own site, blog, even application. After its first release back in 2003, WordPress has been improving to mature into an extensively flexible Content Management System (CMS). Today, WordPress powers more than 30% of the web. That’s including some of the most popular sites you know. WordPress is the platform that offers you the capability to build and manage your personal website and make it as complete as possible without the need for code writing knowledge. Frankly, if you have used a text editor such as MS Word, you will probably have zero problems with the WordPress Editor.
In our days, there are some discussions about a new platform type - Digital Experience Platform (DXP), and the fact is, WordPress is the closest one to that description. Basically, a DXP is an integrated set of technologies, based on a common platform that can reach multiple highly-specific users on a more personalized basis. While the majority of marketing campaigns are tailored to their specific platforms, a DXP would give you the opportunity to carry out such campaigns, regardless of your device.
To answer your question quickly - Yes, WordPress is free! It’s open-source software which grants you the freedom to use, modify, build upon, and redistribute the software in any way you would like to without paying any additional fees.
However, in order to publish WordPress on the web, you will need a WordPress friendly web hosting.
Every shared hosting account has its own Control panel via which you can create and manage your website, emails and FTP accounts. The Flex-Small, Flex-Medium and Flex-Business hosting packages provide you with an extra option to add additional domains and create independent websites managed via a single control panel without the need to purchase a second hosting package..
You most certainly don’t! The majority of WordPress users are not tech-savvy, exactly because there is no need for CSS or PHP knowledge when you are operating the CMS. There are more than enough feature-rich plugins and themes that will help you in making your website appealing with ease.
Installing WordPress comes included in the package and there will be no extra fees applied. This can be easily done with just a few clicks with the use of Softaculous from your cPanel. You can always depend on our support team to install any CMS for you upon request, which would be free of charge.
Yes! We would gladly become the new home of your WordPress website. The transfer process is extremely easy and straightforward. Save time and effort by letting our Technical support staff move your existing cPanel hosting account to a new account at Flexible Net. The best thing about our free transfer service is that it requires zero downtime to your sites. On top, once you purchase one of our hosting packages, you get a free domain transfer plus 1 year of free domain name renewal. Note that if you are not using cPanel with your current host, we would transfer up to three sites and/or databases for free (depending on the hosting plan you select).
Because WordPress is open-source software, there are regular updates to it, with the addition of continuous security patches (several times each year). It’s a good idea to always be using the last available release of WordPress, since it would be the most secure version of it, in addition to having more features. In case you want to test something on your site, but without the risk of breaking it, you can quickly set up a staging site and freely edit there. The staging site is basically a copy of your live website in its current condition.
Since updates will be seen in your WordPress dashboard, they are quite easy to be done. Performing them is a matter of a click and take 5 or 10 minutes tops. Just click on the refresh/update icon or go to Dashboard → Updates and then click on “Install now”. You will see the confirmation screen that welcomes you to the latest version of WordPress after the installation is complete. It should only take seconds, but keep in mind that while the update is loading, your site will be in maintenance mode.
Prior to pulling the trigger and upgrading your live websites, in order to proceed with a safe upgrade generate a backup manually.
It’s always the best idea to make significant changes and perform tests to your site in a staging or development environment rather than on your live site. Otherwise, you risk potentially breaking your front and back-end. Be sure to check your error log for any errors.
You can have as many WordPress installations as you need on your Flexible Net account.
If you are not sure about which WordPress version your site is currently on - no worries! All you have to do to check your current WordPress version is going to your WordPress dashboard after logging into your site. The current version number can be seen at the bottom-right corner of the dashboard.
