For newbies it is the only platform which can let you produce something productively without having any knowledge of php. Your other option is blogger, just buy a domain and direct it to blog and build. It is hosted by google, however soon you will realize that it lacks features. Regarding security about wordpress, there are tutorials which guide on improving security for the site.

Blogger is just for rich content sites. For online stores, wordpress would be perfect. Wordpress has plugins which will convert your site into a full online store. There is a learning curve. So if you start today you will be able to make something in few days, improve that in few more days. After few months of working and learning you will be a wordpress expert. What you will need is stable hosting to experiment and domain to experiment. I suggest haphost for hosting and get your free domain from uni.me or any other place you prefer.

If you need to do anything commercial, then go for your own domain name. Search engines do not like free domains that much, and for an online store, search engine rank is the biggest source of customers.

Wordpress can be as strong as any other framework. It all depends upon how you use it. Illegal plugins and themes are the biggest cause of hacked wordpress websites. So, make proper investment and get a good security plugin for WP, good theme and your site will be secure.

IM me and I can help you with that.

Haphost and uni.me are free services, they provide hosting and domain respectively. Haphost is the new name of host1free, if that rings any bells :lol: . Anyway use them to experiment and once you are confident you can go.

Get a domain and web hosting to start a new website!

So did you get your site done. Contact me if you need help, I m already doing this stuff.

The wordpress script downloaded from offical website is secure, & It's tested version by wordpress officals, However, The nulled script or crack wordpress theme version might contain internal hidden script that might harm to your data. Kindly also make sure, when you are going to install wordpress plugin, it's registered by wordpress offical.

Thanks.

yea usually wordpress nulled templates and plugins have those sorts of gifts like sending SPAMs to Emails, but in real you have to Digalot to make sure your wordpress is protected usually the spam goes using contact form pages, Comments, OR Registration forms you can always add Captchas to them and make sure to install a plugin who detects the Brute force attack will surely protect in some cases...

If commercial, never opt for free hosting etc. Buy your domain and reliable hosting and then start...as stated above.

Security issues can be addressed with proper coding/ plugins etc... Google is your friend.
