I am planning a new site for domain name and host resellers.
I need a suggestion on the best platform.
Joomla, Wordpress, pure html or what?
Hope to hear from you.
I think wordpress is the best CMS to design a webiste. Because its user-friendly as well as SEO friendly platform. Also, It's very easy to use and understand. It will help to gain SERP. Its templates are attractive. So, I would like to suggest you wordpress for web design. Thanks
I suggest WordPress because blog and simple product website become more seo friendly and we can modify page links, post links as per the date and category wise, We can easily add meta data to all pages and posts, we can append .php or .html at the end of url.
I've used both Wordpress and pure HTML, and they both have their advantages and disadvantages. Personally, I would opt for pure HTML if you're going to create a website for resellers etc. It reduces the risk of being hacked, and reduces the amount of bad bots. I know from experience that Wordpress is a haven for bots that will try and get into your /wp-admin/ directory.
If you need more complex features that you do not want to, or cannot code, then go with WordPress.
I work with WP, Joomla, Drupal, and WP is way easier to deal with for the most part. There are many themes out there both free and paid on websites like themeforest. Also, it is very easy to find someone to create a custom theme if you want one.
The easiest solution (Wordpress) doesn't always mean the best. Especially if you intend to just install Wordpress and let it live without performing upgrades. This always leads to a disaster - your Wordpress being hacked by bots that exploit security holes.
I see no reason to use Wordpress these days - there are powerful static site generators like Jekyll or Middleman, and a lot of open source themes for Bootstrap at StartBootstrap.com. You develop a website like a pro, with asset pipeline and CoffeeScript, and get raw HTMLs on the output. You don't even need a PHP or SQL database to run it.
I remember back in 2004 when I joined WHT, any hosting company that used a template (usually from TemplateMonster back then) was mocked and considered untrustworthy.
Personally, I'd recommend hiring a web designer to create a unique template for your website. If you have the skills, create one by yourself.
It's totally fine to use a CMS (we prefer Drupal), but make sure to always keep it up-to-date and host it under a separate cPanel account, just in case it gets hacked (e.g. due to a 0-day vulnerability).
In order to find the best platform you'll first need to see what special features your site will need. Every script is different from one a nothing in such small ways that it could make a huge improvement depending on what you exactly want to use the application for.
All the ones you listed are great it's something you have to think hard about and at the end of the day choose the one you feel most good with. It's like purchasing shoes you first try the shoe on to see how it feels , performs etc..
