W3 Techs has also reported that PHP is currently used by 82% of the websites worldwide. In other words, 4 out of every 5 sites that you browse daily are likely powered by PHP – Facebook being one of the most famous examples.
The vast majority of web projects online are content-centric, i.e. providing information in some form as the main type of service that their visitors are interested in when browsing. Some examples being:

Each business that relies on standardized content for their digital presence can leverage a CMS such as WordPress, which currently powers over 26% of the websites online. Content Management Systems are built around the concept of content, allowing you to publish news, pages, and extend the core platform for any other type of content as well. They do support users and different roles (such as administrators, editors, customers), and provide you with the opportunity to extend your platform, both in terms of design (with little to no constraints), and functionality (through custom plugins integrated within your core system).
DevriX specializes in WordPress development for successful businesses and has been actively contributing to the Core community through patches in the Core platform, free themes and plugins, organizing WordPress events around the world, translating WordPress and providing support for users.
