Drupal is an open source content management platform. Equipped with a powerful blend of features, Drupal supports a variety of websites ranging from personal weblogs to large community-driven websites.
Although Wordpress is used more as a blogging platform than an all-out content management system, many webmasters and organizations use it to organize and manage content. Wordpress offers easy remote access for bloggers looking to update their sites from any computer with an Internet connection, be it from web hosting company or a local Internet provider. The platform is also easy to use and provides functionality that enables those with limited coding knowledge to deploy simple websites.
