WordPress is the #1 Content Management System, by a long shot.
By the Numbers
There are plenty of reasons why WordPress is the #1 Content Management System in all of the world, mostly because it’s downright amazing. The statistics that make this CMS the world’s most popular are truly mind-boggling. A few for example are the numbers. 74.6 million websites depend on the power of WordPress. 50% of that 74.6 million are hosted on WordPress.com, the free blogging platform. When it comes to self hosted websites though, WordPress makes up for about 19% of all websites on the internet, those numbers are quite impressive considering the internet reached a total of 863.2 million websites in the latter half of 2015 with at least 70% of those websites not using a CMS at all.
