Comparison of CMS options for foreign trade station construction - which is better, WordPress/Joomla/Drupal/Shopify

At noon today, a former website building customer wanted to build a B2C type website for foreign trade and asked which program to use. Here he also lists several programs, such as our common ones WordPress / Joomla /Drupal/Shopify。 In fact, these are really good and mainstream foreign trade CMS programs, but each has its own advantages and disadvantages.

The figure above shows the statistical data from w3techs and the usage of CMS in each program in each year. We can see that the four programs mentioned by the brother above are also in use, but in this article, Lao Zuo will take a look at the characteristics of these programs.

First WordPress

I believe many personal websites are very familiar with this program. Basically, our personal websites will use this program to build blogs or content management systems. And most of the websites built abroad will use this program. At the same time, if we use the WP program to build a website, there will be many free and paid topics. For example, we can see that the theme forest also regularly releases free commercial themes.

If we need it Free theme You can find many WordPress foreign trade topics on the Internet. In addition, there are many plug-ins provided. In a word, WP can create many website models, which are quite self owned. The only disadvantage is that the speed will be slow after the data is large or complex, requiring high configuration servers and optimizing performance.

Second Joomla

Joomla program is also quite common. At the beginning, many people will use this program to do content management systems, rather than foreign trade websites. Joomla provides the MVC system, namely the Model View Controller, which separates the original code design tool from the business design tool. But Joomla is not perfect. Significant code modification on Joomla may cause the system to not work or the system to be overloaded. If we compare Joomla and Wordpress together, we will find that this program is insufficient in humanized design, and the update frequency is relatively small, which is also due to the lack of resources provided by its third parties.

Third, Drupal

This Drupal program used personal blogs more in its early years. We can also see that the Drupal community is rich in content and resources, but these information updates and resources are insufficient. For example, we need more themes and plug-ins than WP. However, there is no problem with security, unless we can re develop ourselves, there is no other problem.

Fourth, Shopify

Shopify is a popular third-party CMS platform. This is not our independent website, but a similar self-service website model. But we can bind the domain name and set our own theme. But it needs to be paid monthly. One advantage of this is that the official platform does not need our own operation and maintenance server. However, there are also shortcomings, such as inflexibility, the need for in-depth research on secondary development, and the need for monthly payment.

In short, Lao Zuo personally believes that if it is a foreign trade website, I prefer WordPress to do simple foreign trade procedures, such as enterprise websites. If it is a B2C of a large website, it needs to use large programs such as ZENCART or Magento.
