With nearly 455 million sites on the internet using WordPress, it consists of 40% of the internet. As an Open-Source content management system, WordPress was primarily created for developing blog-related sites. However, due to its simplicity, it is being used for developing other types of websites such as for business, membership, online courses, non-profits, portfolio, social, e-commerce, and much more.
Whether being a website developer or not, anyone can quickly build a website using WordPress.

Unfortunately, even having a complex password to login-in to access, thousands of WordPress websites are still hacked every day.
