Whether you make WordPress Website or Coded Website (using html, css, js) what will be your motive ? your motive will be to make a website that is unique, secure, favourable in nature for you & your viewers as well. Also, it should be in your budget etc..There can be several purposes and requirements ,all depends on you.
We can compare coded website & WordPress website on the basis of:
Time taken to create website
you can build website in maximum one hour only with the help of WordPress but it will take minimum 1 week to build coded website.
Budget for website
Plug-ins and themes are not free in WordPress, you have to pay for it but if you don’t want to spend money then web development will help you a lot. Again, what if you don’t like any plug-in then by doing coding you can create your own plug-in and that will be more better and fair option.
‘plug-ins and themes are not free’ does not make any sense. Those plug-ins which are better and have more complexity will be more expensive, some of the plug-ins will be less expensive but some plug-ins are available for free also, you can use that if you have low budget .
One’s choice can also depend on type of businesses , if your business is to promote your products or you have to do blogs or any other business like this then you can simply create a WordPress website.
But if your business is your main job then you should make coded website i.e by coding, because it will contain lots of sensitive data. If you will make website on WordPress then all your data will be on WordPress server and if any security problem will arise then your data will be on hold and can easily be accessible to hackers. In case of your own coded Website, all your data will be on your own server & even if security problem will arise then you will be able to fix it properly and your data will remain safe.
Types of website
What if you have to make a video streaming websites, social media platforms like Facebook , or any other website in that matter then what will you do? you will have to make coded Website ,there is no choice here because these type of sites contains sensitive data too and you should have your own server in that case.
Both the ways, websites on WordPress & website by coding (html,css,js) are good & fruitful. you can make website by any method. For any purpose, you can make website by either way . WordPress have almost all type of plug-ins ,you can choose any and can explore and if you don’t like any of them then you have choice of coding too, go make it by doing coding .
Despite of their pros and cons you should do learn both ways. If you you have less time then you can learn WordPress method & make your website and after that learn web development WordPress and when you will be confident enough to build website by coding then make website and migrate your WordPress website to your self made website.
Or if you have ample amount of time with you then go and explore both ways and choose one of them from your own experience.
There is some more benefit of learning web development ,you can do freelancing jobs after learning this but you can’t do freelancing on learning WordPress.
Hope you understood
