It depends that what type of website you want to make and what are your priorities.

  1. If you want to make a simple website that does not cost more and loads fast then WordPress will be a nice platform.
  2. But if you want a big website like an eCommerce website then Magento will be the best option according to me.

As people mentioned above, WordPress is superior. I will add that WordPress is really good for SEO too.

I will suggest WordPress as the best web development platform available today. 

WordPress is so popular, There are tons of themes, plugins, tutorials support and they even have wordpress.org which is free.

 

But as suggested in this thread, the popularity of WordPress has become it's greatest threat, as hackers and spammers target wordpress websites more than ever.

There are vulnerability issues in wordpress, but they are constantly updating the platform and closing all backdoors opened by vulnerable plugins. 

If use WordPress sensibly, it is the best. If you go on and install a lot of plugins with no history or good reviews you might as well be in danger. 

 

There are a few precautions that you can take to keep your wordpress website safe, and make the most of this amazing web development platform.

You can read bout the safety measures that have to be followed in wordpress here https://www.globalme...s-website-safe/

 

Basically,  don't use default user names and passwords. 

The URL for back end access in wordpress websites are all same, yourwebsite/wp-admin

So hackers and spammers can easily try common user names and passwords surprisingly most people still use.

Like admin, admin123 etc... those are silly mistakes to make from your end.

 

Using "Recaptcha" for form and comment submissions are also a very good practice. 

 

There are other good web development platforms like weebly, drupal, joomla but wordpress towers all of them.

There are many platforms for web development. You can do it by coding by specific languages or you can develop by predefined platforms called CMS (Content management system). Wordpress is an awesome platform for web development. It is virtual framework which is coded using PHP language. If you don't want to use wordpress, you can code by using HTML and CSS along with that of BOOTSTRAP. You can also choose advanced programming languages like PHP, JAVA etc.

Something I'd recommend for front end development would be Brackets. Incredible interface for real time tracking of front end changes. Works with HTML, CSS, JS and a variety of other languages!

WordPress is much more effective and easy to use platform for developing the website as compare to other platforms, because of it's built-in features you don't have to do too much coding.Not much time ago I have some problems regarding search option and finding content in attached PDF, DOCX. files, but just because wordpress is more intensively developing and updates are coming out regularly and we can find so many responsive themes and plugins. I have found a search plugin named "Full Text Search" which solves both my problems. So I highly recommend you to use Wordpress.
