What is Wordpress, how it works and what is its use?


Date: 15 Sep 2016   Posted By: Ramakrishna Kambhampati     Group: Computers    Category: Blog and websites   

I come across on internet and even in our site. Members are using the word wordpress. I am thinking it is a kind of blog or website through which members can develop their own site freely. In fact I don't have any clear cut knowledge regarding this.
I want to know from experts in simple terms what Wordpress is and how it works?
What are the ways to develop in wordpress and can we link this wordpress blog or website to Adsense account?
What are the content posted in this wordpress?
If we register for wordpress will it become our own site or not?
I request technical experts to explain about
wordpress in a simple and easily understandable way.
Awaiting response.

WordPress is a CMS and it can be used as a blog or the eCommerce store or as any other website software. It has plenty of extensions that helps you add more features to the WordPress.

WordPress is available in two format - self hosted where you have to find your own hosting and use the software. And another is cloud hosted, which you can find on wordpress.com. And here you have to pay them some specific fee for monthly hosting of the blog. Initial 50mb is free on the wordpress.com but later you have to buy the hosting plan for more storage on wordpress.

You can design your own themes if you know how to code in HTML, PHP and CSS. This combination allows you to convert your normal HTML page into PHP based theme files. An then you can use the theme on your blog. It is not hard to learn and with practice you can easily get hold of the wordpress themes as time goes on.

As you learn how to edit the themes then you can add the adsense code in HTML. And that way you can display the code in the post or the sidebar.

In terms of content wordpress has post and pages concept. Static and fixed content goes into the pages. And regularly updated content goes into post.

If you register on wordpress.com with domain or subdomain it remains yours as long as you are paying the fee. If you are buying your own hosting and domain, and then using wordpress on hosting, then it remains yours as long as you own the hosting.

Wordpress.com is a site where you can make your own website having a sub-domain 'wordpress'. Wordpress has better features and tools in comparison to other blogging sites. Also, Wordpress is SEO efficient. Wordpress provides free hosting to its user, so you can upload posts free of cost. Now, if you wish to purchase domain for your wordpress site, then it would cost you.
Additionally, you can link your wordpress site to Adsense account for earning if your site is at-least 6 months old and have relevant posts in it. If your site is getting a good amount of hits per day, then you can earn a good revenue per month.
