The main CMS

Get to know the main CMS platforms and what their differences and advantages are


Wordpress is arguably the most famous CMS! Being in the market since 2013 and initially targeted only at Blogs, it has quickly become the most used CMS worldwide, being responsible at this time for 70% of websites across the internet, with thousands of themes and plugins available.


Joomla has been around since 2005, originating from a fork of Mambo. Despite the "Boom" originated with Wordpress, Joomla still continues to be used for institutional sites like Schools, Government, etc. It also offers thousands of free templates, extensions, multi-language support, user management and more!


Originally created for Forums, Drupal became open-source in mid-2001. It is backed by a robust community with some of its advantages being security, being oriented to developers, and having modules and flexibility to introduce new features without the need for plugins.

Advantages and Disadvantages of Using a CMS

Fast and Easy to Publish

With a Wordpress, Joomla or Drupal website you can save a lot of time and development costs. It allows the introduction of new contents, pages, images, users and permissions in an easy way without having to resort to a specialist or programmer. If you already have some experience, this could be a good solution for your company.

Open Source, Features and Plugins

If you choose an open-source CMS you can install one of these platforms for free. Wordpress, and other platforms like it, rely on a giant community that updates and creates new features every day making them available at no cost. Without the need of any technical knowledge, it allows you to easily install and use various plugins and functionalities (eg, Calendars, Forms, etc.), reducing investment costs.

Automatic Updates

Most CMS have automatic update systems, allwing the web site, plugins and extras, in most cases, to be always updated and in the latest versions. It always requires, however, the attention of an operator who will be responsible for the periodic updates of the website.


Implementation and Maintenance Costs

Although free, CMS can have an initial implementation cost, namely: installation, customization, themes, etc. On the other hand, if the maintenance is not properly done, it may jeopardize the website causing security problems. The price of plugins and extras (the really good ones) can also have high and annual costs.

Low Flexibility and Creativity

If you are looking for very specific features, then you should avoid a CMS solution. It is not always possible to implement "correctly" certain features so that, depending on the case, it may make sense to make a custom website. The same happens with creativity. There are hundreds of templates available, but these do not always allow you to assign your personal touch. So, it can take much longer to personalize them compared to a costum website.

Fragility and no VCS

These platforms, as already mentioned, are easy to use. Nevertheless they can very easily be broken. That is, a badly configured option or bad management can cause the website to be inaccessible or even have permanent errors. This is not the case with a custom website where there is the concept of Version Control that allows you to maintain the integrity of your project and reverse or limit specific changes.
