Azuro Digital owner Daniel Houle claims that WordPress is the only real “no-code” website builder on the market that offers simple plugins for almost any functionality.

“WordPress competitors boast of being ‘no code’ solutions, but if you need to do something complex (or even something that should be simple) on a platform like Wix, you’ll need to add custom code,” Houle said. “WordPress is the only true ‘no code’ solution because it has a simple plugin for almost any functionality.”

In the opinion of Delower Hossain, founder and CEO of Dbuggers, the popularity of WordPress is due to its flexibility, which allows companies to create any type of website.

“We have seen clients improve search rankings within 2-3 months in search results. They have jumped from page 3 to page 1 in organic search. There is definitely a change from 10% to 20% that we have seen in clients who switched to WordPress.”
