PLATFORM- The foundation to your business

WordPress.org

30% of all sites on the web are built on the WordPress platform,  The .org version is the free version and the .com is the paid version of WordPress, we only work in the .org version.   Is it easier to use a different hosting platform?  Maybe in the beginning. If you are going to create an online business and you would like to control your presence, stick with WordPress.org.
