    Er, CMS can also be created with ASP right??

    Maybe you're comparing PHP to ASP?? You'll get different answers from different camps ........ if you like free scripts, more support and you do not have a corporation/company system that forces you to use Microsoft stuff.. go with PHP.

    I mean, what is the benefit of using Drupal/Joomla to develop website compare to using ASP.net to develop from ground up? COnsidering future expandability and SEO, which is a better way? Let alone the time to develop. Tq.

    Joomla and Drupal are free, very advanced and with worldwide support, not to mention the hundreds of other free addons/extensions for expansion and also comes with Search Engine friendly URL feature. I don't see any reason for you to waste your time and develop a ASP based CMS from the ground up.

    The only reason you want to go it alone is maybe if you want your own brand of product? But is it worth the time and effort when there are already EXTREMELY good ones available for free?

    Btw, even Wordpress is being used as CMS nowadays.

    Appreciate your advices. With this, which is better? Drupal or Joomla? I heard Joomla is not so SEO friendly, is that so?

    Sometimes it depends on what exactly your requirements are and the resources you have to put into such a project.

    If you find a ready-made CMS which suits your needs, then that may be good enough. If you want certain additional features and you cannot find extensions or addon modules, then you will need to be able to create those on your own. Sometimes it is difficult to study other people's code in order to modify or add to it.

    Also, some ready-made programs may have much more features and functionality than you actualy require. Creating your own simplified version that exactly suits your needs may be a consideration. The program will be smaller and if well coded will execute faster as it won't have all the unnecessary components that a ready-made program is installed with by default. Some ready-made programs are fairly bloated as lots of people have added on to it. Your own program will also be easier to modify as it is your own coding. Of course, if a programmer does the coding and then leaves and you don't know how to modify it, then you're in trouble.

    There are pros and cons to both. You have to evaluate it based on your own requirements and needs. How much resources do you have to put into the project, how much programming expertise you have, who is going to use the system, who is going to maintain or modify it etc etc.

    You cannot decide on what other people like us tell you as our purpose or requirements may be different from yours. Its like some people use WYSIWYG editors to create webpages and others hand-code using a simple text editor. Both can do the same thing depending on their own needs.

    PHP is the Huge Environment. Many web development using PHP because:

    • Easy to Write/Understanding The Script.
    • Easy to Setup API.
    • Easy to Create XML ZIP.
    • Low Server Requirement.


    ASP is the most functionable and stable.

    • Able to Run A Huge Number of User.
    • High Security.
    • Strong Protection.
    • Need a High Requirement of Server.
