Why WordPress

The Open Web has changed the world and we have all benefited. We’ve learned skills, launched careers, formed friendships, met life partners, championed causes, and experienced the outputs of infinite creativity. We’ve also created products, platforms, communities, and entire ecosystems that wouldn’t exist without the Open Web.

WordPress is a product of the Open Web, built on the four core freedoms of Open Source software. WordPress powers more than a third of all websites and has become an Operating System for the Open Web, serving creators over a wide range of ecosystems spanning cultures, languages, and geographies. For individuals and organizations relying on or connected to the Open Web, WordPress matters.

Web technology companies have more opportunity than ever to grow through WordPress. From direct integrations that attract new and retain existing customers to creating Ecosystem Plugins, WordPress is the best vehicle for expanding reach and impact.
