How good are websites made with WordPress

35 websites created with WordPress

WordPress is now much more than just blog software. Realizing even large and highly complex websites with millions of visitors a month is no problem for the flexible solution from Automattic. The worldwide triumph of the free content management system is unstoppable. Over 60% of all websites with CMS already run with WordPress. The trend is still increasing. WordPress is the only CMS with a significant increase in distribution. All other systems at least stagnate or even lose market share. It's not a miracle, because WordPress is easy to use and developers have almost no limits. With the right configuration, WordPress can easily handle millions of visitors per month, which is one of the reasons why even large and well-known brands are increasingly relying on WordPress. Today we present a selection of those world brands that are already using WordPress as their CMS.
