The more WordPress plugins you use, the more problems the website will have.

WordPress is Webflow’s biggest competitor with over 43% of the web being built using it.
WordPress is a free and open-source CMS (content management system) and its features include a template system - themes, which control the design of the site and a plugin architecture that adds functionality to the website. Initially, WordPress was created as a blog-publishing system and later, it evolved to support other web content types. These days, WordPress is a very popular platform for developing websites.
Despite that, many websites are migrated from WordPress to Webflow. Wondering why? Designers, developers, marketers, and clients are always on the look out for tools that make their lives easier. And, Webflow does exactly that. Wondering how?
- Webflow offers the best hosting services in the industry - Amazon Web Services (AWS), supported by Fastly that ensures security and speed. And, Webflow has more than 99% uptime - awesome, right? Additionally, it’s very easy to set up Webflow hosting and get your project started. On the other hand, WordPress doesn’t support integrated web hosting services, which means that the website needs to be stored on third-party hosting services.
- Webflow enables easy updates to the website, such as adding blog posts, changing images, or editing text, with the use of its Editor. This is a great solution for teammates and clients to eliminate the complexity of the Designer from their workflow. Whereas, in WordPress, it’s not easy and straightforward to make such changes after the website is developed. This is a huge disadvantage for the website’s content management.
- Webflow doesn’t rely heavily on plugins, whereas, WordPress depends on plugins fundamentally. And yes, superficially plugins make our lives easier, but they come with a lot of problems. Plugins can uncover security vulnerabilities of the website, break things and slow down the performance, not to mention that they need to be constantly updated. The more plugins you use, the more problems the website will have.
These are some of the major reasons why more and more websites are migrated from WordPress to Webflow, but the list is certainly longer.
