There are many platforms for creating websites. These platforms can be divided into two main catagories -
platforms that require installation (local or hosted server) and cloud platforms.
In the first catagory we will focus on Wordpress and in the second catagory we will focus on Simbla Website Builder.
Let's compare the two platforms according to the parameters we put in place in the previous section:
Easy, quick and affordable
WordPress installation requires prior knowledge. It can be installed on your own server or on a hosted server. If you are not familiar with WordPress and you want to use it, we recommend using an automatic insallation service. WordPress itself provides hosting and installation - https://wordpress.com/website/ or you can use a similar service.
Simbla - Starting your website with Simbla is much simpler and faster. You can register with Simbla online www.simbla.com and start creating immediately.
WordPress requires security and version updates. If you are using WordPress, make sure you are using WordPress's latest version and use a service that will keep your Wordpress version updated. This is a critical issue for your website and the only way to keep it protected and secured.
Writing articles is quick and easy with WordPress but if you want to make substantial changes to the website's structure or design you'll have to get into the HTML code.
Simbla - no need to update. The platform is allways updated with the latest version.
Writing new articles with Simbla is easy and simple. Changes in the structure or design of the website is easy and intuitive with the Drag & Drop UI.
Secure and stable platform
WordPress - Make sure you are using WordPress hosted servers or another known secure hosted service. Make sure that the website is automatically updated to the latest version of WordPress. Otherwise it will be exposed to hacking.
