    Default Wordpress for commercial websites

    Wordpress is originally a CMS geared toward bloggers, but I notice that now there are many regular websites running on Wordpress, and they still look professional. Do you think it is possible to use Wordpress to build a commercial website, on which you sell products to and accept payments from your customers?

    It is definitely possible to build a commercial website with WordPress. It is enables a user to create a website as well along with being a blogging platform. This is possible through a WordPress hosting platform. With a WordPress hosting plan you will not have to worry about managing the technical aspects of creating a website as WordPress provides with a very simple and user-friendly platform.

    Yes, I think it is possible to use a Wordpress website to sell products (especially information products) and accept payments. You can use Download Monitor plugin to share/sell downloadable files on your website.

    Wordpress CMS is highly customizable and hence it can be used to build professional websites as well. One of the best benefits of Wordpress are the plugins which are available for it. You will find many plugins which are available for Wordpress and can serve your needs for different purposes.

Moreover you also get the option of downloading free plug-ins and extensions.

    One of the other benefits of Wordpress is the fact that it's a very light weight CMS. It does not have any special requirement and one can host it with a shared hosting plan whether Linux or Windows.

    Yes, of course it is possible to create a professional website running on Wordpress. If you want your website to be unique, you can even design your own theme or customize the existing theme. The choice is yours.

    I think WordPress is the best platform to create a website. With a WordPress hosting plan, you will get access to a large community of WordPress users who will provide you with technical information and suggestions to create an impressive website. Even if you are not tech savvy, using WordPress will not be difficult for you.

    Yes, Wordpress is an amazing platform geared towards bloggers and webmasters who don't want to deal with web designing and coding that much. I still wonder how they can provide it for free.

    If you sign up for a WordPress hosting account, then WordPress can be downloaded for free. You only have to pay for the hosting charges.

    Wordpress users have so many design options and templates available. Each website has an individual look which is so important. I'm glad to find out that ecommerce is possible from Wordpress sites. I guess there is a plugin for everything when it comes to Wordpress!

With WordPress hosting, a highly efficient online store can be established with minimum efforts. Through the scripts and plugins provided, the online store can be made impressive with fast navigation and thereby the online transactions will also be efficient and the customer will get a better online shopping experience.

    You are still allowed to download Wordpress for free no matter what hosting provider you purchase a hosting plan from. I believe many eUKhost's users are running Wordpress blogs without encountering major problems.

    Wordpress is so popular that many web hosting companies have software included in the control panel that enables Wordpress to be installed. With all the plugins, you should be able to do anything from having a shopping cart to hosting videos.
