Wordpress-WebsitesWordPress was started in 2003. It’s an open source software based on PHP & Mysql.

E-Commerce
WordPress can be great solution for your e-commerce shop as well. If you want a small online store with no more than few hundred products then you can easily decide to use WordPress for that. If your store is a bigger thing with over thousand products then I would recommend to use Magento or PrestaShop as those 2 e-commerce platforms can handle any online store size.
