The “web 2.0” era has shown us that technology is shifting from decentralisation to centralization. When it comes to internet shopping, Amazon and Walmart have taken over, while Facebook, Medium, and Substack have absorbed a huge chunk of the content previously published on blogs. Even in the WordPress sector, there has been a frenzy of acquisitions. Companies such as GoDaddy, Automattic, and Liquid Web are acquiring WordPress-related platforms.
We previously mentioned Elementor’s switch to cloud hosting as an example of the several “flavours” of WordPress that consumers will become accustomed to. When compared to Full Site Editing and the original-flavor WordPress, adjusting a sidebar or menu with the Elementor WordPress editor can be challenging. WordPress.com is the most visible example of the disparities in user interfaces between hosting companies.
While open source WordPress has always existed independently of Automattic’s proprietary platform, the latter has recently created some of the most exquisite dishes for its proprietary platform. Open-source software, on the other hand, is tough to criticise, especially when a firm as generous as Automattic provides so much to the community. Self-hosted WordPress sites have a far more recognisable interface than WordPress.com sites, but the distance between the two has only grown wider over time.
