In modern site building, a lot depends on the correct choice of software for the site, the so-called “engine”. In this mini-review, I will dwell in more detail on the pros and cons of the WordPress CMS. During several years of work as a developer and SEO-optimizer, I have dealt with different engines: Joomla, ModX, Opencart, Drupal, WordPress, WebAssyst, etc. And I can state the following: there are no ideal engines.

Each of us wants to get instant access to information. This is confirmed by research: procrastination is not encouraged on the web.

Imagine you are looking for a business lunch delivery. Hunger is already creeping in, and your only desire is to quickly place an order and return to work tasks. Will you wait for one of the many shipping options to load?

Recovery of files — excess waste of time and money. It is important to create a backup and to store it not on the server. The remote hosting not always helps with “rollback”. Therefore, as storage the cloudy disk, for example, OneDrive, Google Drive will approach.
