    Hi Blazho,

    Wordpress is easy to use and update. However, I am using Drupal now. They are a lot of modules and plugins to add on. You may consider Joomla as well. 

    I would suggest you to list down all your requirements before choosing one of them. What functions do you need, for example: A shopping cart? Do you need to accept payment online? Forum? Article posting?

    Then, try to find out if you can find any free modules or plugins to support your needs (of course you can choose to hire freelancer to develop custom module for you).

    Hope that helps.

    Every CMS has its own features that would be beneficial for different Businesses based on their requirements.

    I am putting here a comparison of WordPress with the two other most popular CMSs, i.e., Joomla & Drupal.

    WordPress vs Joomla

    Although Joomla has a number of components, modules, and plugins to offer, it gets overshadowed by WordPress for the following reasons:

    Problems can be fixed faster and more consistently in WordPress than in Joomla. This way, WordPress does not just save our time, but also lowers the cost and improves the performance.

    Since Google is more compatible with blogs and Google content, users take up WordPress to host their blogs on. This is because blogging becomes really difficult in Joomla if you do not have a good content creation kit or custom field system.

    A website can be created very fast on WordPress, compared to the speed offered by Joomla. Moreover, unlike in Joomla, you do not have to deal with conflicting plugins in WordPress.

    WordPress evolves a lot. But unlike Joomla, WordPress does not charge its users for every 0.5 version update.

    WordPress vs Drupal

    WordPress has a certain edge over Drupal. Let us see how:

    Drupal is much more complex than WordPress. While WordPress can be explored and enjoyed by anybody, it needs a severely experienced developer to operate on Drupal.

    On WordPress, updating the software core, themes and plugins are much simpler, compared to Drupal. While it requires only a few clicks to update the software on WordPress, updating Drupal is again a task for technicians.

    WordPress widgets are capable of entirely adapting to the cascading style sheets of your active theme, something that Drupal is not able to do.

    Customizing your website with different free and premium themes is easier done on WordPress than on Drupal. Moreover, WordPress emanates a learning experience, while exploring Drupal is often risky and alarming.

    All I see is that you guys are offering me so called free open source CMS as WordPress or Drupal.But for business needs they don't fit to the small business needs.I talk more about commercial CMS as Wix,Exai,SquareSpace which started to overtake market share of CMS in last 2 months.
