In this series, I am discussing why WordPress is a great website platform. In last week’s post, I discussed how widely used WordPress is and because of it, it is easy to find support if needed.
In this week’s post, I’ll discuss what many people like most about WordPress… IT’S FREE!!
Yes, the WordPress platform is completely free to use. In addition, many of the plugins that can be used with WordPress are also free. That means that you don’t need to spend hundreds of dollars for the software used to build your WordPress website.
There are some plugins that do have costs associated with them. Also, if you want to purchase a premium design (Theme), there will be a cost for that as well, though many of the premium themes cost less than $75. However, if you are able to build, install, and maintain everything yourself, you can do that for only the cost of your hosting and domain name. This means you can build a very inexpensive church website using WordPress.
Overall, WordPress is one of the most economical website options available.
