Webflow Vs WordPress: Know The Difference

Website designing made easy with these SaaS-based CMS software

As Thomas Watson Jr., businessman and second president of IBM puts it, “Good design is good business.” As technology advances, software as a service (SaaS) for building websites and hosting them is getting more popular. Two such services are WordPress and Webflow. Both of these help web designers to design websites without having to know anything about coding. 

We list out a few distinguishing features between WordPress and Webflow to help you understand them better. 

WordPress vs Webflow:

WordPress is an open source software that is free for all, except the hosting fee. It came into existence much before Webflow and has been in use since at least 17 years. This highly popular software is the most sought-after by businesses, bloggers, designers, and developers.

Webflow, on the other hand, commenced in 2013. Its users have been steadily growing in numbers since then. It allows users to build websites without having to write lines of code.

Which one is easy to use?

Because of its open-source nature, WordPress is an excellent choice for professional developers and designers. Using your HTML/PHP knowledge and numerous paid and free plugins, you can alter templates or write codes for your website.

On the other hand, the Webflow site designer is a coding automation tool that allows you to work with HTML, CSS, and JavaScript without having to write any code. You may visualise the code, and the system will change it to the layout you pick. Simply put, the site designer is the one who creates the code for all of the elements and layouts.

User-friendly:

User friendly

Though its dashboard has too many options, most of them may not be relevant to your clients’ interests. However, WordPress is extensible so you can replace the default editor with a page builder that suits your needs.

Webflow has a straightforward on-page editing interface and a clean dashboard user interface (UI). Webflow provides you exactly the information you require. Although Webflow's default editor is more user-friendly, it still has the same learning curve as WordPress. 

Cost:

WordPress is free of cost as mentioned earlier, but one will have to pay for hosting and SSL certificates. 

Webflow has three plans- Basic, Content Management System (CMS) and Business, which range anywhere between $12 and $36 a month.
