CMS

Drupal Joomla WordPress

If you need to create a website for your business, you might be wondering which content management system (CMS) is the best choice for you.

Three of the most widely-used ones are: Drupal, Joomla, and WordPress. All three are open-source software, each developed and maintained by a community of thousands, and all are free to download and use. The open-source format means that their platforms are continuously being improved to support new Internet technologies, and basic functions can be continuously enhanced with an ever-expanding array of add-ons, contributed from their respective communities.

Your choice depends on your goals, technical expertise, budget and what you want the site to do:

WordPress

Despite its humble blogging beginnings, WordPress has taken the world by storm, powering over +100 million websites today.

WordPress is also used on over 40% of CMS-based websites – leading the market of DIY CMS websites by a wide margin.

Most people are still under the misconception that WordPress is still only a limited option for blogs. It’s not. It can handle everything from enormous eCommerce websites and large hotel websites to well-known fashion blogs that get tens of thousands of visits each month. It’s become a much better well rounded CMS over the past few years, and can handle the majority of use cases at any scale.

Drupal

For a complex, highly customized site requiring scalability and complex content organization, this might be the best choice.

 

Joomla

For something in between that has an easier learning curve, Joomla might be the answer.
