    Is this an online store? If so, DO NOT use WordPress.

    My recommendations for beginers:
    Blog Posting - WordPress
    Content Site - Joomla
    Online Store - Prestashop

    I do not prefer wordpress since the user might know the name of the template, and also, HTML has extended functions than wordpress.

    I would definetely not use simple html. Wordpress is a good option, such as Drupal, Joomla, etc. But you mentioned 'trading'. If it is online store, then go for prestashop or other similar e-shop software.

    I would visit templatemonster.com and buy a nice WP template. That will give a 'business' feeling in your site.

    If that is the case, yes I would most definitely go with WordPress. Once you have your wordpress site up, and configured the way you want it, adding content to it becomes easier and effortless as oppose to having to code-in your entries with HTML.

    If it were a store, selling items, etc, I would've suggested looking at a shopping cart scripts.

    WordPress is just fine for a corp/biz website. I know this, because I've built several. I would not built a huge site with complex business logic on WordPress, but most corporate sites are actually very simple.

    Just please take the security seriously. It's not rocket science, but you can't have a nonchalant attitude towards it.

    Also, please disregard any advice telling you that "WordPress is just for blogs" or "don't ever use WordPress for ecommerce". These people don't know what they're talking about. The right kind of answer is a question: "Well, what kind of site are you going to run?"

    +1, if you lack web design skills, then this is a great way to get started quickly and affordably.

    You might also check out Theme Forest--they have some cheaper options.

    Thank you! I can't count how many times I was involved in a WordPress discussion, where at least one user would say "WP is just for blogs". This script is amongst our company favorites and there are numerous reasons for that.

    Even though there are many specific scripts, that can be recommended for certain types of websites, there are as many that will offer you plugins to transform your online project into anything you wish. And with WP, most of those plugins are absolutely free of charge. Its such a large community that I have a hard time recalling the last time I was searching for a website functionality extension and did not find anything useful.

    For your particular question, again I have no doubt - WordPress is your application of choice. You can give a much more professional outlook of your business, integrate the exact functions you need, its quite user-friendly and easy to learn AND to top it all it is absolutely magnificent for SEO.
