WordPress CMS (Content Management Solution) is the world leader when it comes to hosting content driven websites. According to a new report from CodeGuard, a website backup and monitoring service provider, 79 percent of content websites are powered by WordPress, followed by Joomla with 7.2 percent and Drupal with 5.3 percent.

The report also highlights the fact that due to ease of installation, management and support, WordPress is being adopted by website designers and developers more than bloggers, eventually making it a real Content Management System. The number of static pages hosted on WordPress is greater than posts. Most of the hosting providers have started offering WordPress specialized hosting to cash in on the growing trend. Some of these providers are offering WordPress Installation on shared environment while there are few offering the complete dedicated server optimized for WordPress CMS.

The report also lists down the top WordPress themes installed by the site owners. Avada, Twenty Twelve, and Twenty Eleven are the most preferred themes by WordPress admins.
