Wordpress is the most popular CMS for being widely and heavily used to build websites. In fact, about 30% of the websites that exist on the Internet are built on Wordpress. The popularity of this great CMS goes beyond belief. It was built as a blogging platform in the beginning but kept progressing thanks to designers and developers from different walks the tech globe that contribute with their pinch of value by creating plugins, widgets and premium design themes that make Wordpress more functional and easier to transform from a blog aspect to a website. The flip side of the coin though is that this open-source aspect of Wordpress and the ability to integrate with external plugins and widgets slow down websites’ performance big time. In fact, the major performance issues that most Wordpress sites face are the slow response caused majorly by the plugins and widgets that call different servers to ping back a response.
