Web development as the name suggests means development of the web. Web in this context means the world wide web. We can develop the world wide web by developing or creating web pages or websites. Now the next question would be, how can we create a website? Well, there are two ways to build your own website :
- Coding from scratch.
- Using a content management system(CMS).
Coding From Scratch
Content Management System
There are some self-hosted CMS as well such as Wix, Weebly, etc. They are comparatively much easier to use and doesn’t require any software installation either. But, they are highly not recommended to be used if you are aiming to get huge traffic on your site. Also, functionality is limited in self-hosted CMS.
CMS VS Building From Scratch
- There is not a lot of flexibility.
- For total functionality, you have to include plugins which are not always free.
- It might take a lot of time checking for codes for the website’s security and stability.
