The best part of the WordPress is that you can schedule your posts. You can post according to your convenient time.    

9. Multi-user

WordPress is multi-user open source software. You can assign users a different type of roles. Given below is the list of default users in WordPress.

When you create a website you become an administrator by default. The administrator has full control of the website’s backend. Given below is a list of tasks controlled by the administrators:

  • They can update, delete any posts or content.
  • They can also Manage Plugins and Theme.
  • Can delete other user accounts.
  • Can edit the code manually.

Amongst all the users’ administrator is the strongest and dominant user role and should be rarely assigned to any other account. If you give someone else this role, you are giving them the power of your website. So allocate this role wisely.

2. Editor

Here, if any user is assigned as an editor he/she would be able to create, manage, delete, update and publish post and pages of the website. An editor is also authorized to moderate comments and manage category and links, but they would not have the powers like an administrator.


An author has less permission level as compared to the editor. The author has permission to update, delete, and publish their posts. The author’s primary role is to create content and publish their posts.


The contributor’s job is minimal. They can only read the post and can delete and edit their posts. Their posts are saved as a pending post and submitted for review. Once the editor or administrator publishes the post, they would not be able to edit the content hence after.

5. Subscriber

Subscribers can only manage their profile and read all the posts on the site as well.

6. Super Admin

This function applies to just multisite installations. Multisite is a unique feature of WordPress which allows a user to create a network of sites on a single WordPress installation. Super admin may create a new site, remove users, and may handle all Plugins and themes.  The admin is the maximum degree of accessibility that may be supplied to a WordPress installation.

9. In Built Gutenberg Editor

With the latest release of WordPress version, it has shifted from classical editor to Gutenberg editor. The latest editor works on the block and is user-friendly. Using this new editor, you can easily create a beautiful layout of your site.

10 Robust Community:

WordPress has an active community, as we discussed earlier that 35% of the internet consists of WordPress websites. Since there are millions of WordPress users, so the community is also vast. If you face any problem, you can take the support of the community.

So, according to me, these are the top 10 reasons to use WordPress for your website. Other reasons are: Ready to use, customizable, multimedia support, third-party software integration, social media integration, and you can publish content immediately, easy to understand dashboard and many more.

To Sum Thing Up…

In last I would like to conclude that here we have only discussed the top 10 reasons to use WordPress.
