If we want to raise our business to the triumph, we need to select the most suitable CMS platform that can be easily customized based on the requirements. To fulfill all the needs we have two of the famous entities named as Drupal and Squarespace.
Let’s have some points that can make the picture crystal clear:
Both the systems have some pros based on the particular problem. Talking about Drupal, it delivers high-performance, scalability, and reliability to the users for the welfare of the business for which the website has been created. It is a huge open source community where one can easily manage the site on their own, as one can easily add or manage the predefined themes and templates which make it a great tool for developers, site-builders and content managers. On the other hand, Squarespace includes professional appealing templates, it allows you to update the content without affecting the live website while working on an update. It also includes various options for customizing the pages with attractive slideshows and different designs to display, pictures, products, and text.
Talking about the cons, Drupal may be a slow system to work with, if it is not provided with an adequate amount of server resources. One of the complex task to deal with Drupal is to stay up to date to that of a current version of Drupal when support for some key modules has been lost after the last release. While on the other hand, Squarespace is more expensive than other website options, but if you have experts for coding or maintaining a site than it may be a cheaper option to apply.
Inching towards extensibility, Drupal Provides over 30k modules with programming. While on the other hand, some extensibility is also provided by the Squarespace official integrations with high-quality API and widgets.
Security and updates
Coming on the Security or update issues, Drupal includes many built-in security features but when compared with others, it needs some more features to be added for the better results. While on the other hand, Squarespace is quite easy than that of Drupal and have a better maintenance for the security features.
Keeping all the points in mind, it is a complex task to choose anyone as the best side of both, but every system can never be a perfect solution for all the aspects. So we need to decide the best one according to the needs of the particular scenario.
