    Depends on what the complexity is and how proficient you are with WordPress. Many Government agencies, Fortune 500 companies and Universities use WordPress just fine. Again, depends. No one thing is the best tool for every job.

    I love WordPress and have used it almost exclusively for maybe 8 years. I've tried other Content Management software, but I couldn't quite figure out how to get them to do what I want, which isn't the case with WordPress.

    I have a little experience with Weebly and Wix. Those seem much easier to use, so you can drag and drop things easier (Wordpress does have this as well in some cases, it's just hidden).

    Ultimately, I think it depends on your comfort level, though I always encourage people to just play with the services to get a feel for what works for you.

    WordPress is recommended for a reason.

    Be weary though not all themes are equal.

    Its easy user interface its flexibility and simplicity as a content management system... it beats wix and weebly in both of those areas its constantly being improved upon , and lastly but probably of most importance google likes wordpress from a seo perspective , for some reason it hates wix nd weebly.

    wordpress may be a little more 'complex" than weebly and wix BUT


    You would have a search engine optimisation nightmare on the latter platforms

    Not at all. Drupal, for example, is good enough for SEO.

    Agreed drupal is more suitable for seo, however the fact that you have to download modules and lugins: from external sites comprmises security somewhat, also from a users perspective most people wont know where the true power of drupal lies. Its a waste to be honest. Drupal was mind for developers not your average guy looking to create a website so using it to its fullest potential for a website wont happen unless you do know coding in which case you may forfeit wordpress. But your average business owner or person you develop a site for will not understand drupal.

    Dont get me wrong i am not knocking drupal i think if used properly its wayyy maore powerful than wordpress.

    I used wix before to build an online portfolio. It wasn't the best experience. If your just looking to "drag and drop" to build a website, it works well for that. My problem was trying to customize it beyond that. I found the whole system clunky and slow when trying to edit the CSS.

    I just built a free website, so I'm not sure about their hosting. But with wordpress you can choose any host you want, and have plenty of free plugins to choose from to get the functionality you want.

    WordPress is super adaptable and can be reached out by utilizing modules. Much the same as topics, there are a huge number of free and premium modules accessible for you to utilize (What is a module?). Not just these modules can add additional usefulness to WordPress, there are loads of modules which can add a radical new stage to your WordPress site.
