WordPress is a free and open-source content management system based on PHP and MySQL. To function, WordPress has to be installed on a web server, which would either be part of an Internet hosting service or a network host in its own right. Open source WordPress is the most popular online publishing platform, currently powering more than 28% of the web. We wanted to bring the WordPress experience to an even larger audience, so in 2005 we created WordPress.com. The popularity of WordPress represented by search trends is reflected in the usage rates of the CMS, with WordPress being used nearly ten times as much as its closest competitor, Joomla. While WordPress tops at 26.7% of websites using the platform, Joomla is used by about 2.8% of websites. This difference in usage rates only becomes starker when you take a look at the market share of the CMS. WordPress has nearly 60% of the market share. While the WordPress community across the world was growing, and more and more people were building WordPress sites for varied purposes, only the recent release of statistics has managed to shine a light on how big the CMS has actually become. About 26% of websites in the world are said to be powered by WordPress. This number is said to grow to 30% in a few years as WordPress is not just the most popular content publishing option on the web, it is also the fastest growing CMS. It is simply the most popular option for building websites. With this, the mission of “democratizing publishing” as Matt Mullenweg phrased it, seems to have been realized. However, this realization only seems to be the beginning of something bigger. As more people use a platform, chances are that its following will increase because their interest has been roused. If so many people are choosing WordPress then there must be use value from the CMS. The continued growth of the CMS, however, can be attributed to the initial inklings that pushed them to use WordPress proving true. The scary or exciting part is that all the points that make WordPress useful are only growing bigger and stronger market-wise. We have seen this in the growth of the WordPress market.
