When building a business website, it’s important that you pick the right content management system (CMS) to be its foundational base. If you choose a platform that isn’t suitable for you from the very beginning, you could end up paying a lot of money later to move to another. At the moment, WordPress, Drupal, and Joomla are the top CMSs in the market regarding both popularity and usefulness. They will help you make sites that look good, perform well, and be mobile-friendly.
We’re going to take a closer look at the three in the post and help you pick the best one for your business:
WordPress is the most popular CMS in the world at the moment and about 25% of the entire internet uses it. It lets you build some very good-looking, feature-heavy websites with the help of over 45,000 plugins. You also get access to a lot of support from a worldwide developer community. The platform started out as a blog, though, and it shows when site performance begins to slow down the more the plugins you add to it.
Drupal isn’t easy to use, but if you have the programming knowledge, you can set up some very advanced websites with unique features that perform very well on both desktops and mobiles phones. The platform also offers a great deal more security on the whole, but updating Drupal-based websites can be a chore – it’s difficult and time-consuming.
Joomla is somewhere between WordPress and Drupal when it comes to ease of use. Mid-level sites on it will perform better that WordPress and it is also much easier to update than Drupal. You can customize your pages well with the help of thousands of free extensions. You won’t have security problems on it either.
Which one should you pick for your business?
It depends on your unique business. We recommend WordPress is you’re on a limited budget and need something built quickly. Drupal is better if you want a big, enterprise-level website that performs spectacularly well, while Joomla is somewhere in between. All of these CMSs are work well for businesses. The ‘best’ CMS platform is the one that’s right for your business and fits your requirements. So, choose wisely!
