Joomla and WordPress are two of the most popular and versatile web development platforms on the market right now. If you’re familiar with Joomla, you’ll probably be more than satisfied with its various features and functionalities. Nevertheless, it’s not until you make the switch to WordPress that you realise the versatility and flexibility you’ve been missing out on.
Think of it this way - there’s a reason why WordPress currently powers more than 75 million websites worldwide. Joomla trailing behind with just 2.5 million. Both platforms make it quick and easy to build attractive websites that are easy to maintain, but Joomla simply doesn’t compare when it comes to creativity, scalability and scope. If you’re serious about creating a website with the power to compete by 21st century standards, it may be time to consider WordPress migration.

Despite being an incredibly capable and popular web development platform in its own right, Joomla lags behind WordPress in several key areas. Some of the biggest advantages of migrating from Joomla to WordPress include the following:
Quick and easy development of world-class websites, with simplified ongoing maintenance and management.
Faster page loading times and generally improved website performance, improving the user-experience and contributing to SEO.
The general structure of WordPress is simpler than Joomla, therefore easier to work with for newcomers.
An enormous community of developers worldwide, creating an open forum for sharing information and advice.
WordPress is also a uniquely secure and stable CMS, which isn’t nearly as prone to problems and threats as Joomla.
Much greater SEO potential and general flexibility for improved rankings with the major search engines.
WordPress has a significantly larger library of themes, plug-ins and extensions for website enhancement than Joomla.
In conjunction with a leading ecommerce plug-in, a WordPress website can be quickly and easily transformed into a powerful online store.
The flexibility of WordPress makes it suitable for the vast majority of small and large businesses alike.
Building, launching, managing and optimizing a WordPress website can be comprehensively affordable - perfect for newer and smaller businesses.
In essence, WordPress has the capacity to take everything that’s great about Joomla to an entirely higher level. From simplicity to security to site performance to SEO, WordPress has become the content management system of the 21st century.
