When making a website, the developer has mainly three choices between WordPress, Drupal, and Joomla. All three of them are free and comes under open source software category and licensed under GPL. The basic features to each are;


WordPress is the most commonly used website development software used by the programmers all over the world.

It was released in 2003 by Matt Mullenweg and since then, it has ruled the CMS development with estimated 74.6 million websites running on the internet, is created on WordPress.

It too has its cons also as it is not developer friendly. Moreover, not much space is there for modification, easily hacked and updates create more problems than fixes.


Joomla is gaining its popularity day-by-day. It was released in 2005 under Mamboo. It is also free software with estimated 2.8 million websites running on its platform. It is developer and designer-friendly as they can do modifications. It also has a huge community of users which are ready to help the fellow developers any time.

It also has some cons, like, it is not that user-friendly as it is still difficult to understand for everyone and they have recently built it from ground zero so versions available is little confusing.


Drupal is considered as the most advanced web development software out of the three. The main advantages are if you like to code your own version of the website then Drupal is for you. You can use practically hundreds of tags and can take help from other members of the community.

Its benefits also contribute to its cons like Drupal is not very user-friendly as you have to know about CMS to handle and use it. It takes more time to upload hence costing more money than the other two.
