XPRS vs. WordPress

There are an abundance of content management systems and website builders out there, each of which offers unique features, benefits, and levels of performance to their users. But sorting through them all to find the right solution for your needs can be a time-consuming and laborious task.

So you might be wondering:
How do I decide which platform to use?

In today’s post, we highlight an old familiar face, WordPress, and compare it to new-kid-on-the-block XPRS, in an effort to help you determine which site builder is best suited for your needs. Both have distinct advantages for different situations. Likewise, both platforms have excellent features that the other doesn’t necessarily offer.

Introductions: WordPress vs XPRS

WordPress is pretty much the gold standard when it comes to content management systems. Launched in 2003 as a blogging platform, as of 2014, it has been used to create more than 74 million websites between wordpress.org and wordpress.com. It is built on PHP and MySQL and utilizes HTML5 as its programming language. Chances are, in your daily internet surfing you will visit more than one site that was built using WordPress.

XPRS is a brand spanking new website building tool that was launched earlier this year. Like WordPress, it is based on HTML5. However, unlike WordPress, XPRS is not a CMS. Instead, it is a visual editing tool. It uses a proprietary technology called POLYDOM, which essentially allows you to create a website out of smart content blocks. These blocks can be built and designed in endless ways, giving users an incredible level of flexibility in creating their websites. More than 20,000 websites have been created since XPRS came online, with that number growing by the day.

With the basics out of the way, let’s explore both of these programs in a head-to-head matchup to see which platform is best for your website needs.
