When it comes to developing websites, there are two you can consider – WordPress and HTML.   As many website developers know, they both have their pros and cons. This blog post will explore the differences between the two so you can make an informed decision about which one to use on your next project!  While both offer a multitude of benefits, this article will focus on both upsides and downsides of the two. Let’s get started!

 

What do we think?

 

So ultimately we don’t think there’s a right or wrong answer here. we think there are pros and cons to each of these things, and so let’s dig down into them a little bit.

 

Here’s some of the advantages of having a hand-coded HTML website. One, you have the full range of control of everything, and you don’t have third party plugins that can compromise security or that could update and break the look and feel of your website.

 

 And that’s why the front end of most business websites is mostly coded in HTML, CSS and PHP. We’re comfortable with that. And it gives you that full range of flexibility. You can do what you like and can make it look exactly how you want. On the other hand, this is not very good for a large website or a content driven website.

 

I think this is best for websites that are limited to no more than 15 or 20 pages. Usually closer to five or 10. We think a small website that’s very focused. It would be okay for hand code HTML. If it gets any bigger than 20 pages, it’s going to be cumbersome to manage and update, even if you include files and you’re templating out things like the header and footer, We still think it is a monster to manage as a monster to redesign and to update.

 

If you are building anything bigger than 20 pages or even bigger than 10. We wouldn’t want to go there. If you’re building a content driven site, then we believe a content management system is appropriate. Something like WordPress or an alternative. These are things that make sense to us because if you’re doing something like an online publication, a blog, a magazine, a podcast, a video blog.

 

A gallery for your portfolio:  We really think that using a WordPress site is the most practical thing that you can do. Being able to modify it and use HTML and PHP and CSS to make your changes and tweaks by playing within the overall framework is something that’s just going to make life easier and making a new page is as simple as a push of a button.

 

So it makes sense to do those things, especially if you’re uploading a lot of media content. And it’s going to make life easier. And if you’re someone who’s less technical and much more on the creative side, this is probably going to be better for you. It just comes down to how you’re going to use the site and what your priorities are, and also what your individual skills are.

 

There’s a right or wrong answer. Now, if you’re looking to launch your website, We have some recommendations for you.

If you want to get web hosting, We highly recommend hostgator.com. It’s really affordable, especially if you don’t have a big budget and you can set up different types of plans and they have great deals.

 

Maybe you just want to put everything in one place. Maybe that’s easier for you to manage. If you want to build a website without coding at all, you don’t want to do it. WordPress is too complicated. HTML is something you don’t have the time to learn in the first place. Just hit us at [email protected] and we will be more than happy to assist you.

 

Well either way it’s definitely subjective of what you like to use and feel comfortable with.
