Wordpress vs Drupal: Which one is better for your web solution?

June 18, 2021

This is not the first time we talked about the differences between Wordpress vs. Drupal and discussed which is best to carry out web solutions in Panama.

In fact, we already have a blog about the benefits of using Drupal, which you can read here.

However, today we will not only talk about the differences between these two systems of content management, but which of the two is the best option for a Panama ecommerce solution. Let's begin.

1: Drupal has a special platform for e-commerce sites

While it is true that Wordpress is the most popular site to build websites, and is an excellent platform to develop blogs and less complicated websites, when looking for a Panama ecommerce solution, it falls short.

On the other hand, Drupal has a business management software known as Drupal Commerce, which is specifically designed to develop ecommerce sites and applications.

This is one of the greatest benefits that Drupal, as a software development technology, can offer to all those people who not only want to have a web page, but who are looking for a digital commerce solution adapted to their needs.

2: Drupal is much safer to use

Both Wordpress and Drupal are constantly updating their security measures (which, in fact, has given enough to talk about among the community of Drupal Panama), however, Drupal is by far the most secure platform.

So much so, that the vast majority of websites that are hacked are developed in Wordpress, while platforms such as Drupal and Joomla suffer from very few security breaches of this type.

Although it may not seem like it, the security of a web page is extremely important, especially when it comes to Panama ecommerce solutions, in which you want to provide the same security to your customers.

3: Wordpress platforms are easier to develop

This can be considered as a pro as much as a point against. Although it is true that no prior knowledge is required to be able to create a Wordpress platform, it is also true that this limits the options of those who seek to develop a much more complex web page.

On the other hand, Drupal (although more complex at the moment of understanding and using), offers a much bigger experience to all people in search of web solutions Panama.

While it is true that you need expert developers who know how to manage Drupal in order to create a web page on this platform, it is worth it once you get the final result.

4: Drupal offers more flexibility

There is only one thing that most people looking for a Panama ecommerce solution have in mind when they want to develop a digital platform.

This point is directly related to the previous one, and the truth is that, thanks to the complexity of Drupal, is that it offers thousands of different options that allow you to customize your platform as much as you want.

While it is possible to customize your website with Wordpress, this CMS only allows you to a certain extent. On the other hand, Drupal allows you to optimize both the image and the internal (backend) of your platform so that it fully adapts to your needs.

5: Ease of development and costs

While we have been mentioning that Drupal is more difficult to use -in a way-, than Wordpress, it has a great ease of development, especially when you consider that Drupal has incorporated the use of frameworks such as Symfony and how easy it is to manage the PHP language, the ease of development is much higher.

It is also worth mentioning that Wordpress and Drupal costs are relatively low, since both CMS are free. However, when finding expert developers in any of them, it is likely that the developers Drupal experts are more expensive (Although again, this depends directly on the type of solution you seek)
