Example of a WordPress website developed by RVC

This site shows how you can create a professional "static" website using the free, open source solution at WordPress.org. By static I mean no comments and no auto-archiving blog feature.

Many people only think of WordPress as "blogging software" but the great thing about using it for a traditional, static site is you can seamlessly add a blog and comments feature later, if necessary.

To be clear, I am referring to WordPress.org which requires a 3rd party hosting provider. WordPress.com, which is a viable solution for some, is a hosted solution managed by Automattic. While both options use the same software, WordPress.com has some limitations. For example, you cannot use custom themes and you cannot upload plugins.

As for extensibility, there are more than 1,400 themes to choose from and over 17,000 plugins at WordPress.org.

Because of its extreme flexibility, the WordPress theme I like to use is Atahualpa. It's what I used for this site and I highly recommend it.

Finally, to give you an idea of popularity, last time I checked, there have been over 42 million downloads of themes from WordPress.org.

So if you are considering alternatives for your next website, don't let "free" fool you. It's a viable option. WordPress.org's free, open source software offers more options and customization capability than many proprietary/paid solutions.
