CMS Website Development Company Mar 30 / 2024

Did you know that 94% of the users’ first impressions about your business relate to your site’s web design? Also, 88% of the users are less likely to return to a website after a bad experience.

In the vast landscape of the internet, where first impressions matter a lot, having a well-designed website has become a necessity. But spending a hefty budget on website design might not be possible for all, especially small business owners. Content Management Systems (CMS) are here to solve the problem.

What Is a CMS Platform?

With Content Management Systems (CMS) platforms, you can develop websites, even if you aren’t a coding genius. There are pre-designed templates that you can use to design, create, manage or modify website content.

There are over 2000 CMS platforms available and here we save you time by listing the best ones.


Magento is an open-source platform that is made especially for e-commerce stores. The platform can feature a huge number of products and orders and thus is suitable for both small and large businesses. Magento holds a 9% market share among global e-commerce platforms.


  • Provides a flexible shopping cart system for online merchants.
  • You can manage multiple stores regardless of the varied locations, languages, and currencies used.
  • No upfront costs. You can sign up for free and upgrade anytime you want.
  • Provides advanced reporting functionality and catalogue management tools.
  • Offers 24/7 support.
  • Great mobile responsiveness.
  • Great for SEO.


  • Might get expensive since it requires hosting.
  • The initial setup might look complicated to beginners.
  • The user might need to know the basics of coding.
  • The customisation might become time-consuming.


Squarespace started marketing itself as “a website builder for creatives” but over time, the CMS platform has become an all-rounder. The first thing that comes to mind about Squarespace is the stunning homepage and the beautifully designed templates. If you are looking to create an aesthetically pleasing website, then Squarespace should be at the top of your list.


  • Stunning templates that look great on all devices.
  • The templates can also be customised.
  • Excellent marketing features for business growth.
  • Great features for blogging like multi-author functionality, AMP support and more.
  • 24/7 support (email and live chat).
  • Can support up to 1000 pages but 400 pages are recommended for the site to run smoothly. (400 is still a great number, Wix has a 100-page limit).


  • The templates can increase your website’s loading time.
  • Not suitable for large websites.
  • Not suitable for multilingual websites.
  • A limited number of external extensions.
