WordPress.org Is A Custom Web Hosting Provider?

While browsing through my feedreader this morning, I had a chance to read a bunch of the feedback related to the 2.0.x legacy branch of WordPress being retired. However, one site I came across which I’ve seen many times before in my feedreader, Globalgold.co.uk published a hilarious press release of sorts.

Custom web hosting provider WordPress has announced the retirement of one of its software packages.

In a blog on the company website

Ok, I don’t need to go into details reminding people that WordPress.org is not a web hosting provider and that WordPress.org has a development blog for the software, not a company do I? Oh wait, I just did.

  2. @DD32 – LOL I have no idea what MailChimp has to do with anything in that Press Release


  3. Funny stuff. Goes to show some people don’t research the topics they are writing about.


  4. LOL, that is funny – I could not expect some folks would be able to write that. :D


  5. @Martin – Exactly. It’s just funny all the way around.

    @Banago – Yeah, not sure how they could think WordPress.org is a webhosting provider.


  6. I also used a WordPress as a platform for my website and honestly very satisfied with a solution I have. Its CMS is great and very convenient. In addition, WordPress blogs are easily customized.
