WordPress is open source web software you can use to create a beautiful website or blog.
We build WordPress themes for both self-hosted (wordpress.org) and hosted (wordpress.com) version of WordPress. The difference between the two is a lot like owning (self-hosted) or renting a house (hosted).
When you own a house, you have more freedom and control over how you want it to look and what you do to it. You also have more responsibility with maintenance and updates.
When you rent a house, you’re limited to what the landlord provides and what they allow you to update. The responsibility of renting a house is less than owning, however, there are many limitations to what you can do with your home.
