As we mention earlier, we are specialists in web development and design with WordPress after many years of working with this CMS. They say that experience is a degree, and in our case, it is like that.
We master the good backend that it offers and the frontend (which, for the not so knowledgeable, is the most visible part of a website). And, in addition, we are specialists in PHP, which is the web programming language with which WordPress is developing.
Let’s say that PHP is the ABC and the basic language, and to program and develop a website independently. You will have to master it minimally. It is true that with basic notions of HTML and CSS code. You will be able to manage your website at a basic or intermediate level. But for more advanced WordPress web design or development issues, mastering this language will be essential.
On the other hand, if you are going to work with databases; it will be important that you master some of MySQL, which is very well known for servers.

Whether they are pages with custom code from WordPress or with its own CMS that it offers, the reality is that more than a third of websites are designed and developed with WordPress.
Other CMS that are also known are very far from the market share of this giant. We are talking about developing websites with Joomla, Wix, Squarespace, or Drupal, perhaps the ones with the most name.
In turn, something similar happens in the world of eCommerce. Through WooCommerce, the WordPress plugin surpasses specialized platforms such as Shopify or Prestashop, who, even having clients, do not reach the prominence of WordPress Development Service in Lahore.
However, to know if a website is developed with WordPress, we give you 3 ways:
