The WordPress core is fully SEO-friendly based on the sense that the website(s) developed will be indexed higher by search engines. Many WordPress themes are built keeping SEO in mind. The plugins like Yoast help in streamlining the pages or blogs for organic traffic.

Cost Effective: 

Using WordPress for developing the website(s) can really be very budget-friendly as it is an open-source platform requiring no licensing cost to gain its access. One can start building the website with the important stuff and a pre-decided budget with spending on website development, premium themes, and plugins. 

E-Commerce features: 

With an increasing trend of online shopping, many entrepreneurs are seeking the advantage of developing commercial websites using WordPress. CMS provides a number of plugins one of them being WooCommerce which adds powerful eCommerce features to the website. Social accounts can also be integrated with the website which can direct more traffic and it can automatically update the feeds with the new products/services when added to the website.

Managed Hosting: 

WordPress comes with a number of hosting options to choose from like WP Engine, Kinsta, Siteground, and the like to develop an enterprise website that needs high scalability, great performance, a secure environment, and robustness. These managed hosting providers provide reliable hosting solutions to WordPress compliantly. These providers will take care of regular and automated backups, offer low operational costs, have high performance, scan sites for security breaches, have optimized speed, and provide multiple staging environments and expert support.

Mobile Friendly and Responsive: 

WordPress is designed to be a responsive and mobile-friendly platform where a large part of searching is done via mobiles. Content creation takes a back step when it comes to compliance with digital platforms, as websites should convert well on mobile devices else they are placed lower in search. Most WordPress themes and designs are responsive so one can easily choose what would give an excellent mobile experience.    

Enligt a survey published by Google, more individuals search at home on mobile devices than on desktops and laptops combined! Statistics indicate that it will still be expanding in 2023.

Strong and Active community: 

WordPress has an evolved massive support community.

It runs as the backbone for the CMS development where personnel network to learn and grow.

WordPress offers WordPress security plugins to protect sites from vulnerable threats. Using safe plugins, following secure login procedures, and updating regularly provide a hack-proof experience.

Cons of using WordPress

There are many reasons to use WordPress for developing websites. After covering the pros, we’ll check out some of the reasons that make it challenging to use WordPress as an enterprise CMS.

Plugin Bloat: 

This refers to a state where excess usage of plugins can affect the speed and performance of the site. Due to the presence of a variety of plugin options for almost every functionality, one tends to use a lot of plugins for their site which in turn becomes heavily loaded with codes of plugins affecting the functionality. 

Security Vulnerabilities: 

WordPress being an open-source platform is prone to a number of threats and malware. The development of plugins by many developers can lead to the transition of malicious code into your site. Maximum vulnerabilities are sourced from plugins. Even adding a security plugin does not solve the corn completely.

Frequent Updates: 

Keeping up with updates can become a major concern. Frequent upgradation is good for security issues for any site but this can soon turn into an overwhelming process as a site comprises a number of plugins and themes and keeping up with the update process can be quite challenging. The more the number of features added to the site the more compatibility issues one has to deal with.

Overwhelming Options: 

With a wide range of options available to choose from while developing a website, selecting what is required can become a difficult task. For beginners, selecting through a number of options and having the knowledge to process them could prove to be a cumbersome process. If one does not have a clear strategy before development it can lead to confusion while navigating through web designs, maintenance options and robust site development is out of reach.


WordPress is an open-source platform that has thousands of free plugins and themes to make the development process cost-effective. But if one is looking to develop a unique site to give its user an enriching experience then one has to opt for paid/premium features which increase the cost of building the website, as the free available features have already been overused. Adding to this cost are the feature updates that pop up frequently add to it 


Page speed is a crucial factor and WordPress is one of the slow platforms due to the presence of additional plugins, themes, oversaturated databases, and codebases. Adding to these are the content, enlarged image(s), and unpredictable hosting affects the loading speed of the page. Each plugin adds to the loading time. Therefore, the web page takes time to develop and then load. Site speed is an important factor in deciding Google’s ranking as low-speed sites are ranked lower in searches.

Dedicated Support: 

WordPress has a vibrant and one of the biggest communities available but still it is not a commercial product that can provide dedicated support to customers. Fixes for bugs, resolution of issues, and troubleshooting remain unheard of sometimes. One is on his own on such an open-sourced platform.

Back-up system: 

One can easily lose data if not backed up. WordPress has no feature to automatically back-up data. One can use the plugin(s) to do so, but these plugin(s) require configuration to fit in the system also concerning the storage limit. In case the plugin does not automatically backs-up the data one has to remember to take the backup. Another concern is to keep a constant check whenever WordPress releases updates, these plugins should be compatible with the newer versions.


To conclude, we can say that WordPress is one of the most popular development platforms for enterprise-grade CMS. We have tried to discuss the advantages and shortcomings of choosing WordPress as an enterprise-grade CMS. The challenges discussed above can be overcome with the help of experts, one can easily hire dedicated developers who will take care of your website.

MageCart Operators Hide Infection in Legitimate Payment Processing Software

Hackers have repurposed credit card-stealing malware to attack WordPress websites that use a popular e-commerce plug-in to capture and steal payment card details, security researches warn.

Attackers are deploying modified MageCart malware against WordPress websites that use the WooCommerce shopping cart plug-in, says website security firm Sucuri. WordPress plug-in developers Barn2 calculate that more than 40% of “all known online stores” use the plug-in.

An “overwhelming majority” of credit card-skimming malware that Sucuri finds on compromised e-commerce environments target WooCommerce. The modified MageCart injects PHP code into a plug-in file that facilitates the handling of payment data to, a popular Visa-owned payment gateway often used in conjunction with WooCommerce. The injected code checks whether web traffic from infected websites contains a string for payment card numbers. If it does, it dumps an encrypted copy of the card number into a .jpg file for later downloading.

“Dumping stolen credit card info to an image file is an old trick that we have identified attackers doing for quite a few years,” Sucuri writes.

The vulnerabilities in question don’t originate with WooCommerce or, Sucuri says, and instead highlight the importance of good website security.

The modified MageCart malware also injects JavaScript into the payment gateway code to capture data such as cardholder name, address, phone number and postal code – data that increases the value of stolen payment card data on the black market.

The malware emulates the WordPress Heartbeat API to evade detection, Sucuri says.
MageCart derives its name from its original target, the Magento e-commerce platform. Hackers have used it to breach British Airways, unsecured Amazon Web Services cloud storage accounts and jewelry chain Claire’s.

Sucuri says it found the modified MageCart malware after a client received a warning from their bank that their website had been identified as potentially compromised since cards used legitimately on the client website had later been used fraudulently.

“If malicious actors compromise an environment they can tamper with existing controls,” irrespective of a plug-in’s security controls, Sucuri says.
