WordPress for most people is a free blogging service that can be accessed quickly and easily at WordPress.com. Opinion or knowledge that is not wrong, it’s just not complete because other than as a free blogging service WordPress also is the engine behind a website (any type of website, and not just a blog) are often referred to as CMS (Content Management System), this WordPress as a CMS can be downloaded for free at WordPress.org.
In this world of so many CMS developed by various parties, from which is opensource and is distributed free of charge such as WordPress, Joomla, Drupal, etc. nor paid as assetnow, interspire, etc. But in my opinion there is no significant difference between CMS paid and non-paid in terms of technical support and security.
