When you get around to making those crucial decisions about building a website one question you will need to answer is what type of CMS (content management system) you will plan to use. These days many people prefer to use a content management system for building a blog or website as it makes it a lot easier for people with no web design experience to make minor changes to the website such as adding blog posts, uploading new images or making small edits to your key pages.
In this comparison guide, I will be running through the most popular content management systems out there – WordPress, Joomla and Drupal.
Each of these platforms offer a huge amount of functionality and depending upon the type of website you want to create (blog, online store, portfolio, etc.) will also determine which CMS you may end up using for your new site. Here you can find my list of the best blog sites.
Of course the main appeal of any good CMS is it’s ease of use. This is why a CMS is a good choice for any one that has a team of people managing their website who do not have any web development skills or very little technical expertise.
A good CMS will be SEO friendly, conforms to the latest web accessibility and international standards, is flexible to your future needs and offers an excellent return on your investment.
Currently WordPress powers over 35% of all websites on the world wide web and of these three major CMS players it has a 58.4% marketshare.
