As of today, WordPress powers more than 35% of all websites on the Internet. The WordPress business ecosystem generates several billion dollars each year. Not only that, it is the fastest-growing content management system in the world, with roughly 500 new sites built every day that land in the top 10 million most popular sites on the web— more than Wax, Shopify, or even Squarespace. Maybe that’s why WordPress is trusted the world over by major brands like CNN, Patagonia, Spotify, TechCrunch, TED, Thomson Reuters, USA Today, Warby Parker, and more.
WordPress Offers Scalability
For many of them, scalability is the top reason they choose WP. An international study jointly commissioned by WP Engine and Manifesto and conducted by Vanson Bourne examined which content management system (CMS) technologies are most commonly used by enterprises. In the study, which included IT and marketing decision-makers in the U.S. and U.K. who used it as either their primary or secondary CMS, the top benefits included scalability, a robust ecosystem, faster time-to-market, better security, and the availability of skilled developers.
