A popular fad among many web designers today is to use Wordpress for business websites. Wordpress is a blogging program that many web designers now use as a platform to make business websites.
I can see only two reasons why a web designer would do this:
Below is a security advisory that I received at the time of this writing:
Date Reported: 29 Oct 2015
Affected Packages: Wordpress
Several vulnerabilities were discovered in Wordpress, a web blogging tool. The Common Vulnerabilities and Exposures project identifies the following problems:
The above security advisory is a common occurrence. Wordpress sites are constantly getting attacked and hacked, and in response Wordpress constantly releases updates to fix vulnerabilities in their codes.
The reason why Wordpress is always under attack by hackers is because it is very popular. Many people use it because it is free and easy to set up. Wordpress allows people with no experience, skill or knowledge in web design, web development and web programming to have a blogging website where they can share their thoughts with the world. Many individuals have left Wordpress for Facebook and web designers have picked up where they have left off.
Hackers enjoyed annoying bloggers by breaking into their blog and wiping out all their data and replacing it with porn and pharmaceutical items like Viagra. Now that Wordpress is being used for business websites hackers take even greater pleasure in destroying businesses. Imagine what would happen to your online reputation if people went to your business website and saw porn and pills. And who knows how long it would be before you or your web maintenance company caught this disaster and took the site down before further damage could be done to your business.
Wordpress is a free downloadable open-source program. Anyone, including hackers can download Wordpress and view all of its source code. The source code is what makes Wordpress. This is equivalent to you advertising the location of your safe along with the combination.
In the client's Wordpress control panel, they will often see a message telling them to update their Wordpress version (to fix vulnerabilities), along with this message:
They warn people to backup their files and databases before updating, because since the first Wordpress version there has ALWAYS been problems following an update.
A Wordpress business website is going to cost you a substantial amount of money for the website and the monthly maintenance contract. The monthly maintenance contract will be necessary to keep your Wordpress business website operational and to try and keep it from being hacked so your site isn't used to deliver porn and Viagra to your visitors.
I understand the advantages to web designers that use Wordpress to make business websites:
But I also know the disadvantages of a Wordpress site for business owners:
