CMS or constructor

Not long ago, I’ve got a message from my client: “ I wanna to create a website. But we have some doubts, cause we can’t still make a choice between CMS and constructor. What would you advise us?” I had some thoughts about it (as I’d met with it before), but I wanted to make sure that I was right. I asked our professionals points of view , I read literature and let me share my thoughts with you.
So, what is better: CMS or constructor?


Let’s talk about constructor. Constructor is a platform which helps to build a website online. It means you needn’t install anything, buy hosting, work with databases and codes. Thus, constructor helps to create a website without any specific knowledge in IT. There is a benefit is that you can create this site in a short period of time without any help of developers, designers or other specialists. You just need to have an access to the Internet, beginning knowledge in computer and some money. It is attractive, isn’t it?

Certainly, it’s a huge plus . But there are some limits, which you should know about. First of all, you will not be able to add and use additional functions(modules, plugins and etc). Owner of such website has a limited opportunity of management. As a constructor website is created with a standard theme, which contains many spare commands and codes, loading of such website takes quite long time. Also, we think that a unique website is 50% of success. Unfortunately, All themes in constructors are common used, so your website will not have a unique design.

So, constructor can help you to create a website faster, but if you are going to have a site for a long period of time, have an opportunity to change something in the future, or add new functions – constructor is not the best decision.


We have considered constructors and it’s turn of CMS now. CMS is a Content Management System. It’s is a software application or set of related programs that are used to create and manage digital content. Sure, one can’t create such website without help of a developer or without some specific knowledge. You will be able to add any content you want, loading of your website will take few seconds .CMS gives you an opportunity to create unique design and make your thoughts about appearance of your website come true . And you can add and change information at any time. There is easy-using administrative panel. You don’t need to have any technical knowledge to manage your content.

Also, I would like to pay attention to payment part. From the first sight it looks like creating a website with constructor is much cheaper (you needn’t to buy a domain and hosting). But, if we talk about good constructors, you will pay monthly and there are a lot of functions you should pay for. If you stop your payment – your website doesn’t exist anymore. When you build website with CMS you will pay for developer’s services and for domain name. Accordingly, you should pay one time and this website will be completely yours.

So, CMS is a good decision for people, who want to build a website with full functional, unique design and fast loading.

We considered all pros and cons of CMS and Constructor and I hope it will help you to make a right decision. Anyway, choice is yours!
