The best websites today are powered by easy to use content management systems (CMS) that allow you to make changes to a website without needing to touch a single line of code.
WordPress, Joomla and Drupal all offer great features, tons of customization, ease-of-use, and strong security.
It’s important to note that all 3 are virtually FREE. Yup, open source = Free to use and no licensing involved.
- WordPress – Best choice for beginners because of it’s ease-of-use, it works especially well for small to medium sized websites, blogs and stores.
- Joomla – Great for e-commerce or social networking websites, but requires a basic understanding of technical skills.
- Drupal – The most difficult, but also the most powerful. It requires a familiar understanding of HTML, CSS and PHP.
At Silentblast we prefer the WordPress platform not only is it the most popular on the internet today powering over 60 MILLION websites! but it also has the biggest developer community. We’ve embraced this platform for many reasons and our “BLASTBUILDER” plugin and theme is the main reason! It allows you to easily and visually control your content as opposed to working in the backend using the WordPress editor.
