Whether you are creating a business or personal website, you might be wondering what content management system is the best option for your needs. Today, you can choose from a variety of CMS options, including Drupal vs WordPress CMS. Both choices offer advantages, but also have their drawbacks.


 Drupal CMS

Drupal is known for being extremely powerful as well as developer-friendly. If you are building a complex site, Drupal is a good choice.

It is often considered to be a robust development platform than other CMSs, and is used more often in building back-end solutions to works with the CMS front end.

 

Among the most important advantages of Drupal is that it provides a robust suite of features, including user account registration, RSS-Feeds, system administration, menu management, and page layout customization.

Drupal includes excellent building tools and templates, meaning you can avoid the need to start from scratch and ultimately save time, allowing you to grow a site rapidly.

WordPress CMS

WordPress is known for being extremely easy-to-use and has largely developed a reputation as a blogging platform.

With the addition of numerous plugins, widgets, and themes, this CMS platform is now increasingly used for a variety of other purposes, including social media

One of the main benefits of WordPress is that you do not need a lot of technical experience to get started.

The intuitive design of WordPress allows you to get set up rather quickly.

Thanks to the ease of use offered by WordPress, it is preferred by novices and experts.

If there is a disadvantage to this CMS platform, it’s in its security. With so many worldwide users adding open source plugins (how WP works), this CMS is an easy target for hackers and cyber attacks.

We recommend WordPress for smaller websites that do not use a lot of plugins, and for those where the plugin they choose are a good fit for their business. (ie: Retail)
