What’s the difference between Drupal and WordPress? Which one is better?
Drupal and WordPress are two of the most widely-used open source platforms used today. Drupal, actually a development framework, is the more powerful and technically advanced of the two, capable of supporting large, data-driven sites. Drupal is very versatile, offering unlimited possibilities for customization. Developing a Drupal site is a more complicated process. Because of the advanced programming required, Drupal sites typically cost more than WordPress sites.
WordPress, a very popular development platform, is a suitable choice for many small to medium-sized businesses. WordPress works especially well for most blog-focused, media-rich sites that don’t require large or complex database structures. WordPress offers abundant choices in terms of look, feel and functionality. In most cases, WordPress sites are the more affordable option because they don’t require the same level of intensive programming as a Drupal site.
It’s not a question of which one is better, but which one is better for meeting your website needs. In recommending the appropriate platform for your website, we consider your business and marketing objectives as well as desired website features, functionality, overall complexity, intended use, long-term needs, e-commerce requirements and budget. We also look at the level of customization and the type of programming required to best meet your objectives.
