WordPress, Drupal, Joomla or Raw HTML / CSS / PHP?
First thing you need to do is choose what website platform to build your website on. There are many different CMS (content management systems) to choose from and choosing the right platform is top priority. You don’t want to start building your site on a CMS platform to find out that it’s totally wrong for you and your site.
There are plenty of other website builders out there to choose from, but WordPress wins hands down for a number of reasons:
1. EXTENSIVE LIBRARY OF CUSTOMIZABLE PLUGINS
Plugins can pretty much do anything to your site and make it exactly how you want it. You might want just a simple information only or a complex e-com site with hundreds of products. WP can handle this.
WordPress is extremely powerful and can run most types of sites. It’s a trusted platform for many of the busiest websites in the world. It can handle pretty much anything.
3. RESPONSIVE & MOBILE FRIENDLY
With more and more people viewing sites on their phones and other mobile devices, it’s really important to have a site that is responsive to these digital demands. With WordPress, most themes come mobile friendly as standard.
4. DEVELOPER SUPPORT
WordPress is blessed with a vibrant and helpful community of developers who offer online training and troubleshooting via forums and discussion boards.
