cms or hand coding

Some schools of thought are far more projected towards the use of cms or hand coding.

CMS is known to speed up, simplify and reduce the costs related to the creation of a website; others think that ok, the CMS is easier, but the hand coding allows us to offer the best service creating websites, tailored to its’s the same story of buying a ready-made dress or make sewing a tailored suit..!

But, let’s look together what are the pros and cons of both modes of choice.

The user can independently deal with the integration and management of content: images, banners, links and hyperlinks, downloadable files, presentation texts, news, etc…


EASY PROGRAMMING: A key element that distinguishes the Open Source CMS is the use of techniques of programming language universally known by programmers. This allows you to not have to turn to a single programmer for the management or implementation of the structures.

USER MANAGEMENT: All CMS in circulation are used to manage many users, which will have different possibilities for action within the structure, depending on the permissions that will be assigned to them during the registration process.

TEMPLATE FRAME: CMS have many ready-made template graphics and the most famous offer several templates that can be used for free, others at a reduced price even for commercial use.

STANDARD WEB AND INDEXING: CMS are safe and very attentive to the standard, and it is very difficult that a CMS presents vulnerabilities and programming errors.


SAFETY: in spite of the Open Source CMS are constantly being improved and updated, being widely used platforms in the world, hacker attacks aimed more at finding bugs in systems programming. For this reason it is important to keep the site updated and monitored realized, thus reducing the risk of “intrusion”.

CUSTOMIZATION GRAPHICS AND STRUCTURAL: Although there are thousands of graphic templates, plugins and customizable forms, not always easy to modify to suit your needs.

DATABASE: All Open Source CMS require DB to manage them. It is therefore important to check that your e-mail provider and Hosting manages the type of DB used by the CMS you want, and prepare cuts of space larger than a normal site written in HTML.


If you want to reach your full potential with the realization of a web page, made to fit the customer, you should have learned how to write the code by hand.

GREATER KNOWLEDGE: Knowing how to write code by hand means you have more choice in the creation of a website. It has the exact perception of what you are doing. You need to know HTML, CSS, Javascript. This means that if something goes wrong, you have enough knowledge, at least to address the problem.

MORE CONTROL: When you produce a web page template you have total control over every little item and you have the ability to create smaller files than a cms.

GREATER SPEED: You can write faster, and navigate in web documents easily, thanks to useful shortcuts such as Ctrl + F (Find) and Ctrl + M (“Find matching tag”, which will match to start, for example). You can insert new blocks of HTML or JavaScript code that use very quickly preserved fragments, entered using the keyboard shortcuts.


HIGHER COSTS: a workforce that requires more time definitely requires more costs! Every hour more work to complete the website should be well rewarded.

MORE KNOWLEDGE: as HTML, CSS and JAVASCRIPT and programming languages such as PHP,, SQL etc … that not all possess, requiring more time learning at the same time.

TIME DEBUG: The hunt for errors and fix any problems it takes longer, since the risk to commit them by writing code by hand increases.

So the choice between the hand code or CMS is definitely more than subjective!
