There are still some who believe that WordPress is a CMS suitable exclusively for bloggers or small and medium-sized businesses. Nothing could be further from truth, WordPress is increasingly used by large companies that can have millions of monthly visits. For this reason we see a growth of hosting providers with exclusive WordPress services for large companies such as WordPress VIP, and of whom we are technology partners.
Today we want to share with you some examples of large companies that do use WordPress on their websites. Before showing you some examples, though, I just wanted to let you know that you too can easily check if a website is using WordPress. To do so, you can use websites like What WP Theme Is That, Is It WP or WP Theme Detector, among others. You also have an extension for Google Chrome, Firefox, Safari and Opera browsers, WordPress Theme Detector and Plugins Detector that you can install to quickly check if any website is WordPress.
Alternatively, you can check if a website is a WordPress website by inspecting the source code of the page. In many occasions you will find information that will indicate that it is a WordPress website.
Now, without further ado, let’s see different examples of WordPress websites of large companies where for each of them I indicate the number of monthly visits it has according to Similarweb. The list is arranged in alphabetical order.
