Although WordPress is free to use and is simple for people which basic or no knowledge of software development, still it is not preferred by companies for building up their forums or blogs. There may be multiple reasons for the same. Today we will look on why NO to WordPress websites?
Few of the major regions because of which the website are preferred to be built from scratch rather than using WordPress framework are mentioned below.
SLOW IN SPEED
Generally, if you have to build a simple website, you require less functionalities and less coding. But the developers find it easy to develop website using WordPress as it provides several number of themes to choose from and multiple set of plugins which can add functionalities to the website. Which increases the load of code on the website, causing increase in the processing requirements and thus slower down the website overall performance. It may also lead to lower ranking in Search Engine Optimization (SEO).
LACK OF FEATURES
WordPress plugins are designed to do a fixed set of stuff, if you want customization in the functionalities its going to be the toughest task for you. In case you are developing a website from scratch, you will be able to develop the functionality as per your requirements. In WordPress, if you need 5 functionalities which are interconnected to each other, you will be adding 5 separate plugins which will not only increase the processing load on the server but also will slow down the website. And if in case you require some changes, it will be hectic as all the plugins are generally from different vendors and connecting and changing codes may be a big problem for you.
If you have developed a WordPress website yourself and are unable to do some sort of troubleshooting or changes, you will not get any support unless and until you have a paid subscription. And you might even have to hire a WordPress developer or look for solutions on the net for long.
LACKS DESIGN FLEXIBILITY
WordPress generally provides very good looking themes which can be used for developing a website, but these themes are very difficult to modify, many times if you are developing a website by yourself, you will find issues changing design of a WordPress website. If you are purchasing a theme from some vendor, then you can expect some changes from them but that too at a very smaller extent.
WordPress is considered to be vulnerable as it has plugins that are written with multiple loop holes and if someone uses that plugin, he/she makes the website vulnerable, and its almost impossible to check the codes of each and every vendor before putting it live. Also, there can be cases when you install an unknown plugin and make your website and data on it insecure, causing you loss in multiple ways.
Although you have developed the website investing your team and labor, still you will not have all the rights. You don’t own the codes and website. Also, you are kept on the risk of WordPress vulnerabilities, as it goes on updates very frequently. If you want to have copyright of your codes then it will be preferred not to use the WordPress framework for development.
