Is WordPress Right For Me?


When creating a website, there are a lot of choices to be made. One of the first and most important of these choices is which method or you will use. Whereas in the past many websites were built from the bare bones using coding methods like HTML, nowadays there are many different ways to construct websites. One of the most popular ways to do this is with a Content Management System, such as, for example, Joomla, Drupal, or WordPress. While a Content Management System (or CMS) is undoubtedly in most cases easier and faster than doing all of the coding yourself, all of them have their benefits and disadvantages. In this article, we will be comparing the positive and negative aspects of the most popular CMS–WordPress.

Advantages of WordPress

  1. WordPress is easy to use. WordPress is one of the easiest platforms to use, because it is designed to be user-friendly, particularly for beginners who do not already have experience building websites.
  2. WordPress is cheap. There are few costs involved in creating a website via WordPress. The only entirely necessary cost of running a website using WordPress is the small cost of domain and hosting. You may choose to buy extra themes and plugins, but these are not necessary as thousands of themes and plugins come entirely free.
  3. WordPress is popular and thus has a large support community. Because WordPress is so popular, the online community backing it up is exceptionally large and knowledgeable. If you are having a technical problem, the odds are you will be able to fix it easily.

Disadvantages of WordPress

  1. WordPress lacks the advanced functionality of some other platforms. Many platforms come equipped from the start with a number of functions that, on WordPress, you would have download extra plugins in order to use. This makes advanced changes to your website longer and more difficult to make.
  2. WordPress is not always lightning-fast. The way that WordPress is run, along with the sheer number of plugins you will likely want to download, can sometimes result in less-than-optimal loading times and overall lethargic behavior on the part of your site.
  3. WordPress is subject to greater security threats than other platforms. Simply because it is the most popular and widely used platform, the odds its security being compromised is higher than with many other, less popular systems. This is not to say WordPress is unsafe, by any means–it simply means that web administrators may wish to place an extra emphasis on security if they are using WordPress.

Alternatives To WordPress

Wordpress Alternatives

We all know that WordPress has, in recent years, gained a reputation as one of the most popular methods of building a website. However, if you are reading this, it is likely because you are wondering, is there other software out there comparable to or better than WordPress? While WordPress may be the right choice for some, each website, being different from all others, has specialized and individual needs. Below you will find a comparison of the three most popular Content Management Systems (CMS) available on the internet today: WordPress, Joomla and Drupal.


WordPress is known for being the easiest CMS for beginners to learn how to use. In addition, it is free to download and readily customizable, with thousands of free plugins and themes. All of this does, however, come at a cost. Aside from the fact that–simply because it is the most widely used CMS–it is the most vulnerable to being hacked, WordPress websites are also known to become sluggish and clunky when too many extra plugins are downloaded. Thus WordPress is typically only best for beginners, and those who want to build relatively small websites.


Joomla, like both WordPress and Drupal, is a CMS with numerous available free themes and plugins. However, it is known for being more powerful and efficient in some regards than WordPress. For example, it contains numerous features from the moment you download it that, were you using WordPress, you would have to download extra plugins to implement. On the downside, the level of technical experience required to use Joomla is notably greater than in the case of WordPress.


Drupal is known as the most powerful of these three Content Management Systems. This is why it is used most often by corporations, government departments, and other groups with a need for large, advanced websites. In addition, Drupal websites often load faster than those of WordPress or Joomla, because it is highly optimized and efficient. However, as with Joomla, use of Drupal requires some advance knowledge of coding. Also, because it is less widely used than software like WordPress, Drupal has a notably smaller online support system.

Shared Servers Vs. Dedicated Servers Vs. VPS

Server Types

As you build a website, one of the first questions you will have to answer is what type of hosting service you need. For most startup websites, shared hosting is perfectly adequate. Shared hosting, not surprisingly, means that the data for your website will be stored on the same computer as the data for many other websites. Websites that experience high levels of traffic, or that have special requirements, may be better off with a dedicated server. As you may have guessed, a dedicated server is a single computer that hosts your data, and nothing but your data. There also exists a sort of hybrid between these two options known as virtual private server, or VPS for short. We will come back to VPS hosting later. For now we will examine the practical implications of shared servers and dedicated servers. Here are the key differences.

  • Price. Shared hosting means shared expenses. The main advantage of Shared hosting is that it is far more affordable.
  • Traffic volume capacity. Because shared servers must handle the traffic volume for all of their constituent websites, they are less able to handle large quantities of web traffic.
  • Security. Websites hosted on shared servers are at a higher risk of experiencing security issues.
  • SEO Blacklisting. Search engines may blacklist the IPS of a server that posts spammy content. By hosting your website on a shared server, you run the risk of being punished for your neighbor’s actions.
  • Disk space. Because you’ll be sharing memory with your online neighbors, you will have less room to store data on a shared server. Depending on your needs, this may or may not be a problem.
  • Performance. Because you will have an entire computer working for you, dedicated hosting means optimal Performance.

So what about VPS hosting? VPS is different than shared serving because uses partitions to simulate many of the benefits of a dedicated server all while using the same computer. It offers better functioning than shared serving at a fraction of the price of dedicated hosting.

Well here is our first post, I’m pretty excited to get this site up and running.

Just a quick about me/us:

My name is Aaron, I run a eCommerce site called Littleaton.com. It has been a slow road, a lot of fun but very trying on my patience and my wife’s.  So i decided to take a step back and maybe let it kinda work itself out and just let the search engines eat it up a bit.

So one day i had a idea while in the shower that i wanted to start a Web Hosting company, so i talked to a few friends and asked them what they thought.

Over the next few days we did alot of research and figured out what would need to be done and how to go about doing it.  So here we are now, almost ready to launch and already have 2 “Test” clients going and working perfect.

We are just a few steps/tweaks away at launching and opening our doors to the public, so make sure you stay tuned for our updates.
