k, this has been bugging me for ages, How does WordPress make money? THey dont put advertisments on the websites who use their system or their own website…(I think) – the service is free… So how do they do it? Is it somesort of donation system?
The WordPress software (wordpress.org) is used to power wordpress.com – they are both owned and operated by Automatic. WordPress.com does use advertising in some of it’s blogs, but it also operates a subscription system for premium services.
So it is true free and open source philosophy. The software is free forever (wordpress.org), but they charge for added value services (a hosted blog with premium features).
