WordPress is an open-source content management system (CMS) built for the community. The best part about WordPress is that it’s an open system that uses plugins, which allow you to add functionalities to your website. WordPress Plugin Repository has a vast selection of plugins and themes available for your use. These plugins and themes release regular updates. Not all of these updates address security; some of them come up with functional or aesthetic improvements. So, ensuring your plugins and themes are updated keeps your website both safe and functional.
