WEB DESIGN: WHY NOT USE WORDPRESS?
Our goal is not to try to convince you to use or not use WordPress; our purpose is to advise and educate so that those who want to invest money or time in creating a website have a clear understanding of everything involved.
WordPress is one of the most popular content management systems (CMS) in the market, but that doesn't mean it's the best option, as it is also the most hacked, the most insecure, and the one that violates copyright the most.
At Cesko Design, we present some reasons why you should not use WordPress or common CMS:
- Security Issues: Like any CMS, WordPress can be vulnerable to security attacks. Although WordPress has a large community of developers constantly working on updates and security patches, the platform remains one of the favorite targets of hackers. If these updates are not maintained, there can be a large number of vulnerabilities in your website, endangering both it and its visitors.
- Limited Customization: While it offers a lot of themes and plugins to customize your website, there are some limitations to what you can do with the platform. If you need a custom solution, you may have to look for a more flexible CMS or even custom web development.
- Feature Overload: WordPress is a very comprehensive CMS that offers a wide variety of features and functionalities, but this can also be a disadvantage. If your web project does not require all the features offered by this CMS, you may feel overwhelmed by the number of options available.
- Performance Issues: It can be heavy and requires a lot of resources to function properly. If your website is not hosted on a suitable server or not optimized correctly, you could have performance issues that will affect both the site's loading speed and the user experience.
- Constant Maintenance: Although WordPress is easy to use, it requires constant maintenance. You need to ensure that the CMS and all installed plugins are kept up to date, and regularly back up your website to be prepared in case of a service interruption.
- Not Professional: If you want a simple website, you could use WordPress as it does not require programming skills and would be more of a template mounted on a server than a website. We know that nowadays it is vital that users and visitors need interaction, notifications, chats, web apps, and customizations that go beyond a template to provide them with a unique experience when entering the website.
It could be said that WordPress is a good choice for many websites, but it may not be the best option for all projects.
