WordPress is basically software you can use to drive a website or blog. The core software is built by hundreds of community volunteers. Additionally there are literally thousands of plugins available all of which add additional functionality for websites.
The Web Hound is one of over 60 million people have chosen WordPress to power their website and we believe that WordPress is one of the best and flexible ways to power websites.
However we do not just download the site and let you loose on it! Remarkable Design specialise in combining a strong design ability to make your site stunning with a technical ability to develop the core software to ensure you site both looks and behaves exactly as you want it. We rarely use the free themes but rather design a site from scratch to ensure you get a persoanlised site and not just an off the shelf look.
True there are other systems that provide more functionality but this often comes at a cost of the ease of use that WordPress provides. This is why Remarkable Design has adopted this system to drive pretty much all the websites that we build.
History (courtesy of WordPress)
WordPress started in 2003 with a single bit of code to enhance the typography of everyday writing and with fewer users than you can count on your fingers and toes. Since then it has grown to be the largest self-hosted blogging tool in the world, used on millions of sites and seen by tens of millions of people every day.
Everything you see here, from the documentation to the code itself, was created by and for the community. WordPress is an Open Source project, which means there are hundreds of people all over the world working on it. (More than most commercial platforms.) It also means you are free to use it for anything from your cat’s home page to a Fortune 500 web site without paying anyone a license fee and a number of other important freedoms.
What You Can Use WordPress For
