The Most Popular CMS

WordPress is the platform for countless types of websites such as personal blogs, community websites, stores, membership sites to fully featured eCommerce and fan sites.

There are hundreds of freely available templates (or themes) that can also be modified with a little knowledge of html and CSS code.
