Which type of site is right for me; WordPress or Jamstack?
There are a lot of articles out there talking in-depth about this subject, such as this one, however, we’ll aim to summarise the argument.
Jamstack sites are great if you don’t update your content that often and need a simple business card-style website. They’re fast, secure, and easy to maintain. We can create a great design and help you gather content to put on your site.
WordPress sites are great if you have a lot of dynamic content, not to say that the Jamstack isn’t but generally, you need to set-up both to manage your content, kind of defeating the point. Dynamic content can include things like blogs, products, or other data types.
Two of the biggest selling points of a Jamstack site are speed and security. That’s literally what it says on Jamstack.org. However, WordPress has come a long long way in 17 years. With PHP being updated ever so regularly, WordPress has become very fast. We also use various techniques to speed up our WordPress sites which you can read about here. WordPress is very secure now too, with plugins updated regularly and various security suites available. If you purchase our WordPress Maintenance Plan you can rest assured we’ll do everything in our power to keep your site up-to-date and secure.
In conclusion, both technologies have their merits, but the web has come such a long way that both technologies are on pretty equal ground. A Jamstack site is generally more cost-effective though. So, if you’re on a tight budget, contact us today!
