You Have Full Control of Your Website
WordPress is self-hosted which allows you to maintain a full backup of your website. Unlike Shopify, Wix, Squarespace, and Weebly there are no monthly service charges.
Moreover, Shopify, Wix, Squarespace, and Weebly limit your control to whatever features are offered in the premium packages.
That leaves you with some limitations and you don’t technically have full ownership of your site and content. You’re renting the website from these companies. So when you stop paying, all of those files and pages are either lost or held by the company. With WordPress, you own the files, and no one can prevent you from moving them to other hosts.
