What are the best CMS alternatives to WordPress?

best alternatives to wordpress

There are plenty of alternatives to WordPress floating around. Some of them you’ve probably heard of and others are just waiting to be discovered. There are an endless supply of website providers. So, do your research, and pick a platform that doesn’t hold your site back.

Dive through the list of WordPress alternatives:
1. Drupal
This wouldn’t be a real WordPress competitor list without Drupal. They are one of the most flexible CMS options available. Since it’s an open source platform there is support for just about any need and you can find modules that can adapt to any situation. You’ll typically find enterprise websites that need advanced security and custom solutions using Drupal.

2. Sitecore
Sitecore combines a marketing platform and CMS. It offers incredible flexibility, although in return is very complex and lacks user friendliness. If you decide to run with Sitecore be prepared to pay heavy development costs or hire an in-house technologist.

3.  Shopify
New e-commerce owners flock to Shopify for it’s simple, yet extremely effective interface. Even the greenest users can get a site up and running with a day on Shopify. To top it off, there is a built-in blogging platform, 24/7 support department, and automatic submissions to social buying networks.

4. BigCommerce
BigCommerce specializes in e-commerce scalability, allowing all business sizes to thrive. The dashboard has advanced customization modules so that people working in different positions can focus on the most critical tasks for their role. BigCommerce is considered to be more of an all in one system and relies less on 3rd party add-ons than the competition.

5. Magento
With the ability to manage multiple e-commerce storefronts, Magento appeals to large scale operations. Sometimes, the sheer amount of options, apps, and extensions can prove to be too much for a small team to handle. There is a long setup time with an even longer learning curve, but when you get the hang of it, Magento is well worth the effort. I strongly suggest having a dedicated developer in-house.
