There are various CMS like WordPress, Joomla, Drupal, Magento, OpenCart, Prestashop available for us. But we’re very familiar with the name WordPress and Joomla. Aren’t we? Yes! Because these are the leading content management system for us. However, WordPress is way ahead of Joomla. On the other hand, Joomla is capturing the market fast. You definitely need a CMS to build and customize a website. Now, which one will you choose? Will it be WordPress or Joomla? In this article, you’ll witness a comparison between these two CMS giants. So, what do you think who should win in a WordPress vs Joomla comparison?

Well, it’s not about a fight at all. Here you’ll get to know about some basic sides of WordPress and Joomla. So, let’s start the comparison right now!


WordPress vs Joomla – Which one to Choose?


So, this is the first round of WordPress vs Joomla comparison. When it comes to search engine optimization or SEO, Joomla gets the sharp edge. How? Let’s see. Joomla allows all the users to set keywords and meta-description for any new article which is undoubtedly a cool function. But, you need some plugins and extensions to increase the capabilities of both platforms. However, WordPress has Yoast SEO plugin which is literally the best plugin with tons of amazing features. Similarly, Joomla has an extension with the same features called Easy Frontend SEO (EFSEO) which is like the Yoast SEO. But when it comes to search engine optimization, nothing can actually beat Yoast. So, WordPress takes the victory in the first round.


Asking about security? which platform is more secure? when it comes to WordPress, it is much more depended on security plugins. However, WordPress doesn’t offer SSL certification or 2FA security features on its dashboard, which can fuel your nightmares. However, thanks to those security plugins that have assured highest security for WordPress users worldwide. On the other hand, Joomla has their basic security features such as SSL and 2FA. That’s not all, Joomla also offers their own set of security extension to their user. Finally, we’re done with the second round and the winner is Joomla here.


We’ve had the discussion already. WordPress has tons of plugins for security and customization. On the other hand, Joomla has set of extensions. But, when it comes to customization, WordPress is way ahead of Joomla. The same thing happens when we talk about the themes and templates of each respective platforms. WordPress themes have more features, fantastic support, and amazing user experience. So, WordPress is the winner of the third round without a doubt.


WordPress is for everyone. You can build a very simple blog to a very complex website with WordPress. You can use WordPress even if you don’t have any web development experience. However, Joomla is full of complexities. You can’t manage Joomla without minimum web development ideas. Comparatively, both platforms have complex sides but WordPress tends to be much flexible. So, we’ve got the winner of the fourth round! It’s WordPress again.


So, this was out WordPress v Joomla comparison. We have compared both platforms and what we have found is, WordPress is the one we should always choose. But we’re not saying that Joomla is bad for the business either. Joomla has amazing potentials and it’s going to be one of the leading CMS in coming years. Joomla needs some more flexibility to take the pride. If you have finally decided which CMS is perfect for you, it’s time to select a host. In that case, Host SEO is always here to help.
