2020Media is a internet company with a established track record. In this post we’ll find out why 2020Media and WordPress make such a strong solution for any business or non-commercial site.
The Rise and Rise of WordPress
But what was it about WordPress that allowed it to flourish where so many have languished? The story of its success is simple: bloggers needed a quick and easily customisable platform to host their content and WordPress offered a free, open sourced publishing tool that people could adopt and tweak as they wished. But the days of WordPress being simply a ‘blogging platform’ are long gone. The past 10 years have seen the software evolve into a sophisticated content management system that users can build entire websites and applications on.
Over the years it’s seen its fair share of rivals from the likes of Blogger to Joomla, but with recent research revealing that WordPress now accounts for a 62% share of the content management system market, it’s clear the system is now leagues ahead of the competition. An astonishing 23% of all websites in the world are published using WordPress (source: http://w3techs.com/technologies/overview/content_management/all).
2020Media – a UK web host with a great track record.
2020Media was founded by three friends in 1999. Initially working in streaming media and Java, the company soon broadened it’s services into web hosting, domain names and internet services. Over the first few years (and the first DotCom bubble), 2020Media gradually brought all the essential services in house so that it was no longer dependent on any one supplier for any part of it’s services. This included joining RIPE in 2002, using independent datacentres, and becoming an accredited domain name registrar.
With a keen personal interest in Internet Governance, emerging web technologies and the open source movement, the directors have guided 2020Media into it’s current position as a leading UK web host with a highly skilled and knowledgeable team of experts ideally placed to help the SME market, tech-savvy entrepreneurs, local government and the non-profit sector achieve their goals on the internet.
