What Is Better for Your Business – WordPress or HTML?

If you’ve dabbled at all in web design over the years, you’ll likely already know that there are a wealth of platforms and options that can help to bring your brand and business to life online. It can be hard to figure out which is best for you – and while much of the decision can be made based upon your own personal needs and specifications, there is much to be said for and against two of the most popular assets in web design today. Let’s take a look at HTML and WordPress – both of which are great platforms to get started on and develop for – but both with their own plus points depending upon what you need to get out of your web design.


Static HTML Website

HTML, for those who are really steeped in the programming of websites going back decades, will already seem familiar. It’s responsible for helping to build sites that are considered ‘static’ – and much of the editing can be done line by line when you open up the hood. HTML can seem a little tricky – after all, fluency in scripting languages such as CSS and JavaScript are essential if you are aiming to build an albeit static site which is all-singing and all-dancing. While you can effectively teach yourself these skills, HTML is hardly considered an entry-level way of going about things – and much of the power will be left in the hands of the web design team and marketers. What does make HTML worthwhile is that it requires little to nothing in the way of regular upgrades or updates – meaning that unless you make changes yourself, it’s massively autonomous.



Easy-to-Use WordPress Platform

WordPress, on the other hand, has worked its way up to becoming one of the most popular business website builders on the planet. It’s well-known for having simplified the whole web design process – meaning that, while it can take a while to get to grips with some of the more complex features, people have been able to create their own sites from scratch with just a few tutorials. It’s also massively flexible and offers complete control and choice to the end user – meaning that once your web design team has set you going and has shown you the ropes, off you go – make the site your own and update it as and when necessary! WordPress’ only downfall really lies in the fact that it does require maintenance and regular control – but it remains cost-effective, if something which needs a lot of attention.

For us here at SEO CoPilot, we’ll tackle any route we can to get your business looking brilliant in no time – WordPress, however, has largely become the standard and we’re proud to be able to offer flexible, manageable website building packages to a wide range of clients up and down the country.
