Best Website Platform to Build Your Website On, and Why!

Could spark a debate, but let's dive in...

The ranking order for the top six platforms are as follows:

  1. WordPress
  2. Joomla
  3. Shopify
  4. Drupal
  5. Squarespace
  6. Wix

In my view, Joomla's high count is due to legacy websites from over a decade ago when WordPress and Joomla were pretty much alike.

Shopify's large user base aligns with the rise of DIY eCommerce websites, yet I'm more inclined towards WooCommerce.

As for Drupal, I share the same viewpoint as Joomla – mainly old, legacy websites.

Squarespace and Wix have gained traction due to the increase in DIY hosted website platforms.

However, one should be wary of Wix. As you add more features, the recurring monthly costs escalate. You can either develop it yourself or hire a designer, yet it's still limited compared to WordPress.

The essential question is – why start with one platform, only to switch later? Sounds like a questionable business decision to me.

With the sprawling open-source community and the emergence of easy-to-edit platforms, WordPress is not confined to theme styles, making it an unparalleled choice.

WordPress eases the process of scaling your website as your business expands.

Here's the latest data, updated weekly, tracking ALL websites globally.

This isn't merely about popularity. The vast gap between WordPress, commanding over 35% of ALL websites globally, and the next competitor, Joomla with 2%, signifies why we choose WordPress.

Flashback to 12 years ago, WordPress and Joomla were level pegging. Glad we made the right choice :)

We exclusively build with WordPress.

Our preference stems from our belief that WordPress offers clients the BEST platform for business expansion.
