WordPress began as an online publishing platform founded in 2003. The platform has since grown into the “most popular” web content management platform in the world and is used by developers and non-coders alike. WordPress is often commonly referred to as a Website builder.
WordPress users have the option to choose between the hosted version (wordpress.com), a self-hosted version (wordpress.org) and an Enterprise version which includes managed hosting, SLAs, and dedicated technical support.
Some recognizable brands who use WordPress include The Rolling Stones, The New York Times Company and more.
ISSUES WITH WORDPRESS IN CHINA
There are thousands of themes and WordPress plugins that exist in the Wordpress ecosystem. While this is great for adding depth and functionality to a site, each of these plugins are managed and updated by independent developers, with varying degrees of compatibility, and may therefore lead to complications.
While Chinafy handles hundreds of plugins and third-party resources, some may be blocked or delivered slowly in China and thus requiring custom handling for each to optimise the site as a whole.
Additionally, most sites built outside of China face similar barriers when it comes to fast and effective China delivery - and Wordpress is no exception. While resources from Wordpress are not blocked in China, there are key areas that require modification for optimal China delivery.
