It is the official successor of b2/cafelog. WordPress is fresh software, but its roots and development go back to 2001. It is a mature and stable product.

WHAT IS WEB DESIGN?
Web design is the process of designing websites – a collection of online content including documents and applications that reside on a web server/servers of a hosting company.
BEFORE YOU START A WEBSITE
You need to get a place to put your Web pages (hosting company), a domain name for your business & email addresses, a web design company and to understand the legal issues surrounding Web pages and sites.
SEARCH ENGINE OPTIMIZATION – SEO
Search engine optimization (SEO) is the process of improving the visibility of a website or a web page in search engines via the “natural” or un-paid (“organic” or “algorithmic”) search results. Other forms of search engine marketing (SEM) target paid listings. In general, the earlier (or higher on the page), and more frequently a site appears in the search results list of Google, Yahoo! & Bing, the more visitors it will receive from the search engine’s users. SEO may target different kinds of search, including image search, local search, video search, academic search, news search and industry-specific vertical search engines. This gives a website web presence.
A web hosting service is a type of Internet hosting service that allows individuals and organizations to make their own website accessible via the World Wide Web. This service usually also includes email hosting with the same domain name as that of a company’s website.
WEB CONTENT MANAGEMENT SYSTEM
A web content management (WCM) system is a CMS designed to simplify the publication of web content to web sites and mobile devices — in particular, allowing content creators to create, submit and manage contents without requiring technical knowledge of any Web Programming Languages or Markup Languages such as HTML or the uploading of files. Typical content management systems are WordPress, Joomla and many more open source and paid solutions.
