How do I Choose Between Wordpress and Joomla for my Site?

Sure COOLCOM boasts an impresssive compliment of some of the very best webmasters, Developers, I.T. and Server Professionals this country has to offer, and that's just about the best reason you can imagine to host here even if your site is being built by your own designer. 



Joomla and Wordpress are by far the most common and popular website building tools today, and most webmasters, including our own, will recommend one of the two for yours.

We don't expect our clients to install that software themselves, and few Webmasters are actually I.T. trained, so COOLCOM will not send you to a button to do it on your own. Instead we install your software choice for you, complete with the most up to date version so you are starting out with the utmost in security and ready for your webmaster to work their magic. 


How to choose between the two?


Wordpress is great for the person who wants to keep it simple. Once your webmaster has set things up it's pretty easy for you to add pages, update the blog, and update your Wordpress software and plugins. So this is a pretty good choice if your requirements will be consistently straight forward. Most webmasters lean toward this software because it's easy to use for them and conversely you. 

Joomla is for the more complex site; the site that might need a membership base for instance. Joomla is not much harder to update and maintain, but because it does more there is certainly a little more to learn at the outset. Joomla is the software you would consider if you have a site where members should see material that regular visitors do not; also the best choice for a complex shopping system if you prefer proprietary to hosted carts. 

If you really aren't sure, by all means ask us. We have team members that are highly skilled in both packages, even if you stick with your webmaster we can offer you advice that is based on your needs rather than our knowledge. If you would like some free advice from one of our Graduate I.T. Techs, by all means just fill out the form below. We'll get back to you with our thoughts within the day.
