WordPress: the best CMS of 2020

Performing, practical and with excellent functionalities: WordPress is the most used CMS to create websites.


It’s the most known and used CMS (content management system) in the world: WordPress is a personal publishing software platform that allows you to create any kind of website, from showcase sites to e-commerce (thanks to the WooCommerce plugin, which we’ll talk about below).

Born as a simple blogging platform, today WordPress is the generalist CMS par excellence: what makes the difference are the various installable plugins that allow you to create any type of website.

According to data collected by W3Techs, WordPress is the most used CMS to create websites: this is not surprising since it is considered a very performing CMS, with excellent features and practical to use for different types of projects.

The percentages speak for themselves: 39.5% (updated to January 2021) of all websites online are structured on the WordPress CMS – surpassing with the first month of the new year the previous figure of 35% for 2020.

Taking into account that many sites don’t rely on any CMS, it comes to consider that the above percentage would be much higher if we considered only sites that rely on CMS.
