About IsItWP.com

Hello and Welcome to IsItWP, the #1 WordPress technology lookup tool in the market.

At IsItWP, our main goal is to help you find out what websites are built with WordPress, and show you the technology they are using such as WordPress hosting, themes, and plugins.

If you’ve ever asked yourself:

  • “Is this site running on WordPress?”
  • “What are the most popular WordPress plugins?”
  • “Which WordPress themes are more popular?”
  • “Who is hosting a specific website?”
  • “What are the best practices to follow in WordPress?”

Or if you have any other questions about WordPress… You’re in the RIGHT place!

Why IsItWP (Our Story)

My name is Syed Balkhi, and I’m the founder of WPBeginner and the new owner of IsItWP.

At WPBeginner, we would often get asked about whether specific sites are using WordPress? Or which plugin they’re using to accomplish specific tasks.

Most of the information that you would normally find by looking up the source code of the website which is not easy for beginners at all.

So I thought it’d be a good idea to build a tool that can help users find all those details.

I started looking around the WordPress ecosystem and discovered a tool in it’s infancy called IsItWP.

I quickly approached the owner Gordan and asked to see what his plans were. Since it was side project, this wasn’t his priority.

With a little back-and-forth, I found myself making an offer to purchase the site and hiring Gordan to build additional functionality for IsItWP site that the WordPress community can use for free.

Now we’re on a mission to create the best technology lookup tool for WordPress.
