Currently 68% of all websites uses its own CMS programmed specifically for the website. The remaining 32% of websites use a CMS (content management system)
available on the market. Among the most popular CMS
available there are WordPress, Joomla or Drupal. These CMS do not have any license cost and can be installed on the client server.WordPress
is arguably the quintessential CMS because it is present in 17.6% of the existing sites in May 2013 according to W3Techs
, up 1.3 points on May 2012. Meanwhile Joomla and Drupal continues to stagnate with 2.7% and 2.3% of market share in 2013, at very same levels than 2012. Other CMS are Blogger (1.3%), vBulletin (1.1%), TYPO3 (0.6%) or DataLife Engine (0.5%) enjoying low market shares.
As regards e-commerce, Prestashop and OsCommerce with 0.3% continue being the two most preferred platforms, while Magento does not rise in the statistics.
The use or not of available CMS is a very important decision in terms of technology and should be based on the project site. Availabe CMS have their major limitations in terms of web design and web programming but we have to admit that for simple projects it can be worthy if it comes to getting a low-value added project but also at low cost.
