"My review of Wordpress.com"
What do you like best about WordPress.com?

Here's what I liked about Wordpress.com: 1. Pricing: The first thing you will notice while creating an account on Wordpress.com is pricing. I must say, at least in India, that it's one of the most affordable options to go for, rather than buying a hosting plan and installing Wordpress manually. Even the free plan is far better than free hosting services. Even in the free plan, you get the newsletter facility, a WordPress.com domain, and unlimited pages. The paid plans are a must if you plan to go for an annual plan. 2. A Whole New Wordpress Experience: I have installed and used Wordpress, but Wordpress.com takes it to the next level. It gives you a sleek interface that is much faster than the traditional one. There's no bloat, as WordPress typically comes with bloated extensions and themes. You get some built-in extensions that are actually useful, like Jetpack and WooCommerce. 3. You will barely need an extension: Everything you need is pre-installed. Want the share buttons? Check. Want a contact form? Check. The free plan does not support plugins, which I thought was a con, but it's a pro. Plus, you will get access to premium themes in the premium plans. All this adds 10 times more value to subscriptions. 4. Marketing support: You will get a lot of things under the hood. You can hire experts to build your website, purchase credits for SMS marketing, and lots more. This alone will remove a lot of the hassles of having a website. 5. Responsive and quick website: Even with no plugins, the website was pretty responsive, with great speeds on Google Pagespeed tests. The GTMetrix also gave good scores. This is seriously a well-developed product.

What do you dislike about WordPress.com?

Here's what I hate about Wordpress.com: 1. Free trial: Rather than a free plan, they could have offered a free trial. This would allow users to see the full potential of paid plans, especially bundled subscriptions like Jetpack. 2. Monthly plan: The unavailability of a free trial will leave a user trying the monthly plan, which is almost double what you would be paying for the annual plan. 3. Transaction charges: They charge for transactions, apart from the payment processor fees, even in the premium plan. I think this is a con of going to a paid plan.

What problems is WordPress.com solving and how is that benefiting you?

Here's the list of problems we're solving via Wordpress.com: 1. Online Presence: Wordpress.com allows us to build a website quickly, thus helping us build a brand. 2. No-code builder: Wordpress.com allows building websites without a single line of code, thus saving us money and time spent on coding the same. 3. Customizability: WordPress is known for customization. Wordpress.com takes it to the next level. It helps build a brand's identity.

"Reliable performance from an industry staltwarth "
What do you like best about WordPress.com?

An enormous support community, access to many many free or low-cost enhancements and features, and a general open source , freeware nature make WordPress a go-to for a lot of website projects. Getting the WordPress CMS up and running on a web server is quick, easy, and free. The CMS comes with great templates already, but an array of nearly endless additional templates are also available for free or at reasonable prices. Similarly, plugins, which add additional functionality to a website, are available often for free, or again at a very reasonable price, through sites like code canyon and theme forest.

What do you dislike about WordPress.com?

While the WordPress CMS is sturdy, it also can take 2-3 seconds to load each new change on the administrative side. As a site administrator making multiple changes to the website can feel cumbersome. Additionally, and this is one of the things it bugs me most about it, the way that I handle CSS and JavaScript files is something to be desired. If your web developer an attempt to get a decent grade on Google's site speed insights with the WordPress website – good luck. It's likely that the multiple CSS files in the multiple jobs script files or hang you up.

What problems is WordPress.com solving and how is that benefiting you?

With WordPress I've been able to set up, design, and launch complete websites, micro sites, or simple pages that looks great, and perform reliably.

"Great for building your own websites"
What do you like best about WordPress.com?

I've used WordPress to build and host a few websites over the last 10 years, and from someone with little coding/web design experience, they make it so easy! I love that there are a ton of free templates that I can choose from and customize. The price point levels are also great, allowing you to pick and choose which features you want like video streaming and merchant options.

What do you dislike about WordPress.com?

.While there are a ton of templates for your website, the free options don't allow for you to customize where your feed/box/item will be placed on the page - at least none of the ones I've used or tried allow it. From mt understanding, there are templates you pay for and move around boxes or you can pay for WordPress to build the website for you, but that can be a little pricey if you're just starting out.

What problems is WordPress.com solving and how is that benefiting you?

The biggest benefit I've seen is having the option to integrate Gmail into your site, this allows for a professional email address and makes your website that much more professional looking as well. This does cost extra, but if you have a few different departments or contributors, it's worth it.

"WordPress- good for diving right in "
What do you like best about WordPress.com?

I like Wordpress for it's no-nonsense approach to creating your own website without the fees associated with more in-depth programs. It won't look as professional as Square Space, but you can't beat the price.

What do you dislike about WordPress.com?

It can look cheap if you don't put in some real time to organize everything and to make sure that you're utilizing as many features as possible for that professional feel.

What problems is WordPress.com solving and how is that benefiting you?

It solves the business problem of needing a website to drive traffic, without having overhead to cover the cost of a professional designer.

What do you like best about WordPress.com?

WordPress.com is easy to use and this simplifies content management for site owners and web development for tech newbies who can easily add new pages, add products, images, manage blog posts, and more without having to input code. Also, WordPress is affordable and site owners can cut costs with its free themes whose price range from free to $99. In addition, WordPress has an active community wih more developers creating new themes and plugins than any other online software of its kind.

What do you dislike about WordPress.com?

Security issues are a major drawback of WordPress.com since it relies heavily on plugins which is vulnerable to malicious attacks and hacking activities. The other aspect I dislike of WordPress is its updated that have a great potential of ruining my site. Last, web developers hate PHP which is used by WordPress.com due to PHP’s broken language and inconsistency to the customization procedures used in this software.

What problems is WordPress.com solving and how is that benefiting you?

WordPress has greatly helped us in content management due to its simplicity and easiness when navigating through content and pages. Also, the wide variety of plugins in WordPress has made it cost efficient to install and thus developing site has become very easy and cost friendly. In addition, the WordPress plugins have enhanced our site’s SEO purposes, and today our site is ranked high in all search engines.

"Create your website in minutes."
What do you like best about WordPress.com?

It is really good, it has many templates that facilitate the work for a non-professional user, it has some flexibility to customize your website, you have the possibility to add add-ons and edit it to your preference, you have many widgets to install, very easy ways to modify, The support responds very quickly to solve any type of problem, in my opinion I like it very much, WordPress is exactly what I was looking for.

What do you dislike about WordPress.com?

What I don't like is that it has so many functions that sometimes I get lost and confused, and I find it difficult to find the right options for my site, I like its template search engine, but not all of them are very good, almost all of them are identical and to be more original you have to pay, whose price is a bit high, but I do not complain about that, as it is worth paying for something so incredible.

What problems is WordPress.com solving and how is that benefiting you?

After learning to use it, I was able to create several websites in a simpler way, of course it cost me a bit at first, but it was a great unforgettable experience, and I feel more professional doing my job, WordPress has been a great help.
