WordPress is the world's most popular content management system (CMS). It is generally easy to operate, resulting in a shorter and less costly development cycle. Due to the popularity of WordPress there are a huge number of templates and plugins which can further shortcut the development process. More complicated web functionality such as search engine optimization and e-commerce is made less difficult by available plugins. Since WordPress has millions on installations it is highly unlikely that it will cease to operate anytime soon. The huge number of installs does attract significant attention from the black hat hackers of the world which is why it is important to have your WordPress installation professionally setup and monitored.
