The question “Why WordPress?” is easy to answer. The CMS from WordPress is an open-source software and therefore basically free of charge. There are also other good content management systems like Joomla, Typo3 and Drupal, which are free. For most users it is important that the training and handling of WordPress is simple. With Drupal, Joomla or TYPO3 the training and the operation is considerably more complicated than with WordPress. Once WordPress has been professionally installed in its basic configuration in terms of functionality and appearance, it is comparable to a normal word processing program for the user. You can then manage the website yourself without any previous knowledge.
