Celebrating a decade of WordPress

Celebrating a decade of Wordpress

Warning – You’re about to fall under WordPress’ spell (We sure did)

The NIU Design & Development team are celebrating ten years of WordPress! Yes that’s right a decade of developing some of the island’s most popular high quality websites thanks to the most popular open source Content Management System. We’re definitely not alone actually we’re in extremely good company as WordPress is used in 73million websites hosted in all corners of the globe. Want to know what’s so great about WordPress? Here are our favourite five reasons.

  1. Hands down it’s the most popular CMS in the world. NIU were one of the pioneers for WordPress in the Maltese islands, so thanks to our team it now requires less training time for staff because at one stage in your career or another you probably have already used WordPress.
  2. WordPress can be self-hosted so there are no additional costs for downloading, installing or upgrading. Plus, you’re spoilt for choice. There are more than 20,000 WordPress plugins (the majority of which are free)
  3. It’s customizable, flexible and allows designers and developers to create and modify layouts and applications. You definitely won’t feel limited when you choose to go down the WordPress route!
  4. Originally, WordPress was developed for non-tech savvy bloggers, in other words, it’s extremely user friendly and there are loads of written and recorded manuals available. All you have to do is trust our expert team to handle the setting up and customization of your website and then you can manage the fun stuff – updating of content, posts, widgets – let your imagination run wild.
  5. You’re going to love reason number 5 – Lower setup and maintenance costs. According to Devious Media, when compared to other Open Source CMS, WordPress incurs less customization, set-up and maintenance costs.

So let’s raise our glasses and salute NIU’s ten years of WordPress! Cheers to many more.
