Very frequently, they call it war  – the existence of three awesome platforms for building websites – WordPress, Joomla and Drupal. Fans of each platform are trying to persuade the whole world that their favorite CMS is the best. However, keep in mind that for a successful web project you don’t need “the best CMS in the world” (which actually doesn’t exist), but rather – a platform that would most fully meet your requirements.

So, when choosing your perfect CMS, get a clear vision of your whole project, which will greatly simplify the deciiion making process. For a start, answer the following questions:

  • what is the purpose of your website?
  • what functionality it is going to possess?
  • what is your current level of expertise in website management?
  • are you willing to learn?
  • how much you are ready to spend on website maintenance?
When you’ve got the answers ready, this infographic from BMC Hosting demonstrates how good are WordPress, Joomla and Drupal in various aspects of website creation, like general purpose, number of extensions/themes, setup and maintenance costs, technical expertise level required etc.

What if you’ve already got a website ready but realize that your current CMS platform doesn’t meet your needs anymore? You think that there is no other option than starting all over again?
